Dr. Charles F. Levinthal is Professor of Psychology and former Chair of the Department of Psychology at Hofstra University. He is the author of sixteen books, including Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society, 8th edition (2014), and the upcoming 4th edition of Drugs, Society, and Criminal Justice, scheduled for release in January 2015.
The international business of illicit drugs, referred to as the global illicit drug trade, is sustained on the basis of brutality, political expediency, greed, and in many countries, a continuing pattern of political corruption. The focus of the lecture is on the impact of the global illicit drug trade and its ever-changing system of drug trafficking on patterns of drug abuse in America. Particular attention will be directed to the impact of narcoterrorism in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Mexico, as well as transnational narcoterrorism among groups operating throughout the world.
