Drug lord

Person who controls a sizable network of persons involved in the illegal drug trade

Drug lord    ▸ Facts   ▸ Comments   ▸ News   ▸ Videos   

A drug lord, drug baron, kingpin, or narcotrafficker is a high ranking crime boss who controls a sizable network of people involved in the illegal drug trade. Such figures are often difficult to bring to justice, as they are normally not directly in possession of something illegal, but are insulated from the actual trade in drugs by several layers of underlings. The prosecution of drug lords is therefore usually the result of carefully planned infiltration into their networks, often using informants from within the organization.
