This has been going on for decades.
Financing and involvement with drug trafficking has been going on since the Opium wars, at least. Later it became money laundering. In order to gain even more control over the movement and trafficking of drugs and ensure that they maintain their haircut off the top, drugs were made illegal. How's that for creating monopolistic control for yourself over a guaranteed revenue flow?
