Writing as a retired police detective, I heartily concur with your 
analysis of the drug war/drug prohibition. The smugglers ship a 
little extra toward their markets, knowing the authorities will 
confiscate maybe 20%. They also know when their mules are caught, 
they are easily replaced by men and women desperate for money. You 
must know that criminals love drug prohibition, since it guarantees 
them millions and billions in profits. If Thailand and other Asian 
countries want to strike fear and dread in the hearts of drug 
smugglers, join the growing number of voices across the planet that 
call to legalise/ regulate all drugs. The Mexican drug cartels are 
already vocal about how cannabis legalisation in Colorado is hurting 
their profits.
