To me drug trafficking is all about money power and respect. why i said that for is more money you have more power you get and more power you get you get much respect. drug trafficking is not a easy thing you really putting your life in danger. A thing about drug trafficking you may have the money and power and respect but we you get caught you going to have to sever some year in jail. For me after all I'm learned about drug trafficking i cant do it. Don't get me wrong you do make money but we you get caught i just cant sever that time.
