Abstract: Drug trafficking expresses, in a juridical - criminal context, the situation in which an individual or a group of individuals commit acts of non - observance of the legal regime of movement of substances with psychoactive effects under legal control. Trafficking is essentially, but not limited to, the action of some people to produce, transport and/or put into circulation an illicit commodity. The criminological analysis of the way in which drug trafficking is regulated at the international, European and national level reflects the lack of a clear definition of this type of crime, a situation also encountered in other types of crimes such as human trafficking, organized crime or large criminality. There are several ways to address the trends that encouraged incrimination at one point, and legalization at another point of certain drugs, and the analysis of legal instruments offers interesting milestones.
