Brazilian war on drugs taking a turn for the worse

J. Graafland / May 08, 2018 / Political Update
Things aren’t looking good for the Brazilian authorities and their war on drugs as another series of budget cuts was announced earlier today as a result of the ongoing economic problems in the country. These budget cuts come at a time when the authorities are needed the most as the Sinaloa cartel is stepping up its operations in the country.

The cartel has been kept in check over the recent years and their profits were kept low, however the current economic climate within the country has seen a sudden boom in cartel profits, with the ongoing budget cuts to the anti drug operations the cartels in the country saw an extreme increase in profit and operational freedom as the rest of the economy stagnates. The drug trade is shaping up to be one of the only profitable ventures within the country which experts believe could see thousands of young men out of a job joining the ranks of the cartel in an effort to make a living.
With civil unrest increasing as presidents come and go due to severe and frequent corruption scandals within the parliament no suitable solution has been offered to combat the ever more militant cartel forces.

Meaning there is no end in sight for the reign of terror the organisation is spreading throughout its holdings in the remote towns of the Brazilian countryside.
