Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to explore the general idea of the Dominican Republic role in drug trafficking. Its geographical situation makes this country very desirable to the drug lords who use it as a bridge from South to North America to transport illegal drugs. However, this country can be a barrier to the same trafficking by the different actions and decisions taken by the Dominican Government in the war against drugs.
