Investigative reporter Gary Webb dead by suicide: This article together with its links reviews the way in which the CIA has been involved in criminal drug smuggling for fifty years as a means of raising illegal funds. The opportunity to engage in such activity and to raise such funds must certainly be one of the main and enduring reasons for the phony 'war on drugs' and drug prohibition policy; and also therefore one of the main arguments in favour of drug law reform. There is no way to avoid the obvious conclusion, that the vast profits of drug smuggling repeatedly generate vast corruption in societal institutions.
