    Although most people realize that drug trafficking causes a negative social environment in which many die by violent deaths, few understand that the environmental impacts of such a practice are just as severe. Drug trafficking can have a variety of negative impacts on the environment, including the deforestation needed to clear fields for drugs. In addition, the fertilizers used to grow these drugs can be harmful to the environment, damaging soil and water quality, while the process actually converting cultivated vegetation into drugs negatively effects the environment. And these effects are not limited to the drugs produced in Mexico. Instead, they occur everywhere the illegal drug trade that uses the cocoa and poppy is rampant.
