Drugs have always been a vast global issue involving numerous risks, exercising its effects over all areas of social life. The fact that the drug trafficking and abuse have serious roles in the creation and development of the underground economy does no longer represent a novelty or a question lacking importance. The drug trafficking and abuse lead to money laundering, the development of the underground economy, corruption which spreads to the highest levels of power or to other forms of tax evasion. The drug trafficking and abuse and the underground economy have effects on any society, thus resulting in criminal profits. Romania is not considered a country where drugs are produced, but rather a place of consumption and transit, where the profits gained by the illegal organizations produce a social, economic and even a political impact, such criminal groups being the only one to benefit from their illegal activities, their contribution to the economic and social development of the country being void.
