Do you know what illegal industry is the most profitable in the world?
The answer is Drugs.
In 2010, Drugs was number one as well. The second most profitable industry was counterfeiting, followed by arms, cigarettes, cargo theft, and then human trafficking.
In 2014, Human Trafficking is considered the second largest illegal activity in the world (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 2008). Within 4 years, human trafficking has bypassed illicit arms, cigarettes, and counterfeiting. It is time to learn the facts, and educate the public.
