Genuis of Drug Cartels


Rodrigo Canales explains beautifully in this TED Talk how the drug cartels are a wonderful organization of organized crime and what drives them to be such an elite organization. He doesn’t however forget, in all the praise for the precision of their business acumen, that they are the cause for the loss of life of a lot of young children and teenagers.

I think in addition to all the usual reasons for not trying drugs, the fact that it took a few teens’ lives for those few grams of drugs to reach my pocket, is a much stronger reason for me to refuse the use of such a substance, similar to how I and many others have refused to use animal skin, blood diamonds and firecrackers in India as a protest against poaching, slavery and child labor.
