In the last 15 years, law enforcement efforts have fallen behind in the area of technology. Narcotic traffickers and suppliers have vast amounts of monies to subvert law enforcement counter narcotic efforts. With this money, narcotic offenders have been able to develop, purchase and utilize technological and scientific measures to further their drug trade.
