Regulation of Global Drug Trade

Advances in science have since led to an abundance of modern drugs, and regulation or prohibition has become commonplace across the globe and if we trace it back the international trade of drugs expanded to an industrial scale during the European colonial period, leading to some of the first examples of wide scale drug prohibition and even war over trade of opium .However, black market drug trade has also grown proportionately during this time and today some believe the global drug market may be worth up to $400 billion. With drugs funding many other illicit activities and criminal networks forming around illegal drug revenues, the global drug trade has become inextricably linked to social problems, corruption, violence and even war . DO you think that there is much to be done to regulate the industry ?
