Annotation: The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) National Drug Intelligence Estimate (NDIE) is designed to present a comprehensive annual review of the origin, volume, trafficking routes, modes of transport, and smuggling methods of all drugs on the illicit Canadian market as well as the drug money flow associated with this illegal enterprise.
Abstract: The purpose of NDIE is to coordinate the collection, collation, analysis and dissemination of foreign and domestic narcotics intelligence for policymakers and agencies and individuals working in drug enforcement. Trends in the drug market for 1982 indicate that Southwest Asia's Golden Crescent region has replaced the Golden Triangle as the principal source for heroin on the domestic market. It was found that the availability of cocaine, as well as the abuse of the drug, continued to increase in Canada throughout 1982 with Columbia supplying 57 percent of the market share of cocaine. The majority of the chemical drugs on Canada's illicit market find their source in domestic clandestine laboratories, illicitly manufactured and diverted drugs from foreign sources, and diversions of drugs legally manufactured in Canada. It was also found that the cannabis derivatives -- marijuana, hashish, and liquid hashish -remained the most readily available and widely used illicit drugs of abuse throughout Canada in 1982. Methods of improving the ability of law enforcement authorities to cause the seizure and subsequent forfeiture of all assets of value which are established in the proceeds of criminal activity are examined. The use of bilateral and multilateral law enforcement agreements and treaties is suggested as a way to overcome major differences in legal systems and procedures. Tabular data are presented.
