Background[ edit ] The effects of the illegal drug trade in the United States can be seen in a range of political, economic and social aspects.
Smuggling has a long and controversial history, probably dating back to the first time at which duties were imposed in any form, or any attempt was made to prohibit a form of traffic. Smuggling is often associated with efforts by authorities to prevent the importation of certain contraband items or non-taxed goods; however, there has also been smuggling based on illegally exporting goods.
In England smuggling first became a recognised problem in the 13th century, following the creation of a national customs collection system by Edward I in Following the loss of Gascony to the French inimports of wine were also sometimes embargoed during wars to try and deprive the French of the revenues that could be earned from their main export.
Most studies of historical smuggling have been based on official sources — such as court records, or the letters of Revenue Officers. According to Dr Evan Jones University of Bristolthe trouble with these is that 'they only detail the activities of those dumb enough to get caught'.
In Daniel Defoe wrote of LymingtonHampshire, on the south coast of England "I do not find they have any foreign commerce, except it be what we call smuggling and roguing; which I may say, is the reigning commerce of all this part of the English coast, from the mouth of the Thames to the Land's End in Cornwall.
In certain parts of the country such as the Romney MarshEast KentCornwall and East Clevelandthe smuggling industry was for many communities more economically significant than legal activities such as farming and fishing.
The principal reason for the high duty was the need for the government to finance a number of extremely expensive wars with France and the United States.
Before the era of drug smuggling and human trafficking, smuggling had acquired a kind of nostalgic romanticism, in the vein of Robert Louis Stevenson 's Kidnapped: It did not have any taint of criminality and the whole of the south coast had pockets vying with one another over whose smugglers were the darkest or most daring.
The Smugglers Inn was one of the commonest names for a bar on the coast".
After American independence insmuggling developed at the edges of the United States at places like Passamaquoddy BaySt. Mary's in GeorgiaLake Champlainand Louisiana. During Thomas Jefferson 's embargo ofthese same places became the primary places where goods were smuggled out of the nation in defiance of the law.
Like Britain, a gradual liberalization of trade laws as part of the free trade movement meant less smuggling. In the s, when economic sanctions were imposed on Serbiaa large percent of the population lived off smuggling petrol and consumer goods from neighboring countries.
The state unofficially allowed this to continue or otherwise the entire economy would have collapsed. In modern times, as many first-world countries have struggled to contain a rising influx of immigrants, the smuggling of people across national borders has become a lucrative extra-legal activity, as well as the extremely dark side, people-trafficking, especially of women who may be enslaved typically as prostitutes.
As a result, illegal drug traffickingand the smuggling of weapons illegal arms tradeas well as the historical staples of smuggling, alcohol and tobacco are widespread.
As the smuggler faces significant risk of civil and criminal penalties if caught with contraband, smugglers are able to impose a significant price premium on smuggled goods.
The profits involved in smuggling goods appear to be extensive. The Iron Law of Prohibition dictates that greater enforcement results in more potent alcohol and drugs being smuggled. Profits also derive from avoiding taxes or levies on imported goods.
For example, a smuggler might purchase a large quantity of cigarettes in a place with low taxes and smuggle them into a place with higher taxes, where they can be sold at a far higher margin than would otherwise be possible. People smuggling With regard to people smugglinga distinction can be made between people smuggling as a service to those wanting to illegally migrate and the involuntary trafficking of people.
For example, when the Southern United States allowed slaverymany slaves moved north via the Underground Railroad. Similarly, during the HolocaustJewish people were smuggled out of Germany by people such as Algoth Niska.
