Abstract

Drug Trafficking is an ongoing problem in the United States. There have been many efforts to prohibit illicit drug trafficking but perpetrators are still able to profit from this activity. There are numerous problems with drugs being transported into the United States such as; drug abuse, violence and the overcrowding of our prison systems. The research design for this study is retrospective as it examines the road mileage (i.e. Interstates) for each state within the United States in relation to drug crimes in an attempt to determine the propensity of these interstates on drug trafficking.
