That's just how things vary, just like the way there are different people, different races, and different nations. There are 7 countries in the world in terms of continents, including Europe, South America, Africa, North America, Asia, Australia, and Antarctica. But North and South America have the most recorded cases of drug trafficking of all the six continents where human life occurs. What is drug trafficking? Drug trafficking includes narcotics, especially drugs known as hard drugs. It is specified in terms of its unlawful delivery to places where it is prohibited. Thus, from a general point of view, drug trafficking is the mechanism by which hard drugs, unsafe drugs, non-approved drugs (contrabands) are illegally pushed or sold to make profits or money. Several countries have been known as the drug center of the world in the history of drug trafficking, most of them from South America. The largest drug cartels in the world, for example, are in Mexico. Mexico has currently been severely stated to have five enormous drug cartels. While their government is battling tooth and nail to mitigate the danger of drug trafficking, in the country it is still prevalent.

5 nations have a long history of trafficking in drugs. It's not suggested to seek asylum there. But you need to be extremely vigilant if you need to go there.

1. Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is a Caribbean nation that shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti to the west. It's known for its beaches, resorts and golfing. Its terrain comprises rainforest, savannah and highlands, including Pico Duarte, the Caribbean’s tallest mountain. Capital city Santo Domingo has Spanish landmarks like the Gothic Catedral Primada de America dating back 5 centuries in its Zona Colonial district. 

This small nation has a long history of struggling with drugs. It is a Caribbean nation that shares with Haiti the famous "island of Hispaniola." The highest peak in the Caribbean is located there, with the capital of the country being Santo Domingo. The nation is notorious for its illicit use of cocaine. The country's drug cartels typically use Hispaniola Island to ship cocaine to Venezuela. The bulk of the country's drug trade is concentrated in the infamous town of "Punta Cana." Just recently, Santiago Luis Polanco Rodriguez, the country's biggest drug lord, was arrested. He was the U.S. Chief Cocaine Transporter.

2. Haiti

Haiti is a Caribbean country that shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic to its east. Though it’s still recovering from a 2010 earthquake, many of Haiti's landmarks dating to the early 19th century remain intact. These include Citadelle la Ferrière, a mountaintop fortress, and the nearby ruins of Sans-Souci Palace, the baroque former royal home of King Henry I.

The Caribbean country also shares Hispaniola Island with the Dominican Republic, which has already been stated. Haiti must be the first nation to come to mind when it comes to the illicit trafficking or trans-shipment of marijuana and cocaine. Haiti has been identified as a sanctuary for drug dealers in an article published by the Miami Herald. Drug cartels have taken advantage of Haiti's position to turn the nation into a drug center, a poor institution and an amateur police force. The nation functions as a major trans-shipment route for cocaine from Colombia to the United States.

3. Mexico

Mexico, formally known as the United Mexican States (Estados Unidos Mexicanos; EUM [es-taðos u-niðoz mexi-kanos] (About this soundlisten); Nahuan languages: mexihco), is a country in the southern part of North America. It borders the United States to the north; the Pacific Ocean to the south and west; Guatemala, Belize and the Caribbean Sea to the southeast; and the Gulf of Mexico to the east. Mexico covers 1,972,550 square kilometers (761,610 sq mi), making it the 13th largest country in the world by area; it is the 10th most populated country with around 126,014,024 inhabitants and most Spanish speakers. As a federation comprising 31 states and Mexico City, its capital and largest metropolis, Mexico is organized. Guadalajara, Monterrey, Puebla, Toluca, Tijuana, Ciudad Juárez, and León are among the other major urban centers.

The United States of Mexico is situated in the southern region of North America. It is widely recognized as the world's largest hub for drugs. There is no way Mexico is not going to be discussed when we want to talk about the history of drug trafficking. Mexico has the world's 5 largest drug cartels. The Guadalajara Cartel, the Sinoloa Cartel, the Tijuana Cartel, the Juarez Cartel and the Gulf Cartel are among the drug cartels. In early 2010, two prominent drug traffickers, Joachim Guzman and Juarez, had a bloody drug that resulted in the deaths of over 12,000 innocent souls in Mexico. Don't even try to go to Mexico if you don't know your way around or you don't know anyone there.

4. Colombia

Located in South America, Colombia is a big country. Because of its borders with countries notorious for drug trafficking, such as Brazil, Panama, Ecuador and Peru, a variety of drug trafficking firms have been widely involved. It is the fourth largest nation, after Brazil, Argentina and Peru, on the continent of South America. It has its capital in Bogota City. There is no question, with its long history of drug trafficking, that the country is extremely dangerous, particularly for foreigners who do not know where they are. There is a high rate of crime and violence due to the high level of drug trafficking in the region. The cartels in Cali, Medellina and Bogota make up the country's annual number of deaths. Colombia should be the last country on your list if you are thinking of moving to a foreign country.

5. Iran

Iran is located in the South-Western part of Asia and is a very large nation. The country has been referred to as the key "Heroin" shipping point between Afghanistan and so many European countries. Iran has the highest levels of drug abuse and drug-related violence in the world, led by Afghanistan, with almost 3% of the nation's population turning into hard drugs. It is therefore very critical that when they visit the country, everyone should be absolutely careful. Many countries have raised serious concerns about reducing the incidence of drug trafficking in the world. We should not take away the fact that drug trafficking is still prevalent in most parts of the world, particularly in South America, North America, and Asia, given that we know that they are doing well in this regard. We are also expected to ensure that we have thoroughly asked about the country to which we are about to fly, to avoid getting into a dangerous position. We must avoid such dangerous countries at all costs.
