No matter how much drugs Customs find, dealers are still looking for new ways to hide it.
And why are they doing it? The allure of the wealth.
I see this as the equivalent of a price war in a downward spiral. As adept as customs officials are they aren’t nearly as motivated as the drug dealers who keep one step ahead of them.
What do I propose to end this? Crowdsourcing.
Open up the problem to the public, give them the constraints Customs operate under and what the avenues are. Get the public to help you figure 101 ways to import drugs in almost anything that is coming into the country.
Then Customs can get ahead of the game. Sure the public will reveal new ways that haven’t been utilised yet but (in theory) those methods would have been exploited at some point in time.
So stop chasing your tails and take control of the game.
