Assuming that being a drug lord is somewhat Darwinian, one would assume that the most successful ones are reasonably high tech - these are people who can afford private submarines, after all.
So the NSA and GCHQ were probably only increasing the fitness of the cleverest ones by eliminating the less competitive.
Tax and regulate, supply high quality drugs of known potency through legal outlets, and before you know where you are these guys will be legal CEOs. And with their ruthless efficiency, we can let them sort out the competition.
Prof. Nutt and the guy who wrote Freakonomics in charge of drugs policy. There's a thought.
