[edit] Information

A history of the Italian American Mafia's involvement in the US drugs trade. In 2016, almost a million Americans used heroin, double the number of users in the 1970s. America's mob was responsible for it. American Mafia families were caught smuggling and selling illicit drugs as early as the 1950s, in addition to gambling and other illegal activities. These organized groups paved the way for future drug cartels that focused on drugs for their revenue. Although the Mafia has long been associated with drug trafficking, it wasn't always this way. There was a lengthy period when Mafia dons were unwilling to allow their underlings deal in narcotics. But the allure of huge, easy money proved to be too much to avoid the business. Using shocking actuality from the frontline in the war on drugs alongside in-depth interviews with mobsters and lawmen, 'Narco Wars: The Mob' examines the Mafia's role in creating America's drug problem. Despite publicly condemning the narcotics business, in reality the 'men of honor' have long been some of America's biggest drug traffickers... Produced and Directed by Josh Sykes ; A Wall to Wall Media Ltd. Production for National Geographic Network US, LLC.
