The drug problem in the United States, specifically cocaine, is very severe. The U.S. is the number one user of this drug in the entire world. Hollywood continues to glamorize the drug and the American public has an insatiable desire for it. Greed and gluttony play prominent roles in creating this epidemic. Many Americans seeking shortcuts to attaining the American dream sell drugs that feeds this gluttonous appetite for cocaine. Unfortunately there are serious side effects that aren’t as widely publicized.
What are often overlooked are the victims of this drug trade. Not necessarily those that are addicted to the drug simply because they chose to do so, but the innocent victims that are caught up in the drug trade. Especially those that stand up to drug traffickers like that of the Archbishop of Guadalajara, Mexico, Cardinal Juan Jesus Posadas Ocampo.
