The ill-gotten money generated from the drug trafficking business leads parallel economy and negatively impacts the economic system of an afflicted country. In the Indian context, as India is wedged between the world’s two largest illicit opium-producing regions, the Golden Crescent (Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan) and the Golden Triangle (Myanmar, Thailand and Laos), it is sternly afflicted with the drug menace. India acts as both, transit and destination of the drugs produced in these historical regions. Meantime, India too has an extensive history of licit and illicit production of opium.
