Narco Cash: Unveiling the Mexico-China Money Laundering Connection with Gary Lawrence

Apr 26, 2024

In today's episode, we dive deep into the shadowy world of drug production and its far-reaching financial tentacles. We're peeling back layers of the global drug trade, estimated at a staggering $2 trillion that is led by some formidable players who have mastered money laundering operations. 

Listen in as Gary Lawrence draws from his own experiences as a retired DEA Supervisory Special Agent, current Financial Crimes Advisor, and Veteran, to share how crucial it is that we stop the enemy at America's gates. Gary reveals the secrets behind Chinese money laundering and how current government policies could be enabling addiction, as well as encouraging our enemies to keep pursuing drug trafficking. 

Join us as we discuss:

  • Gary's background in law enforcement and the DEA
  • Synergy Between Mexican Cartels and Chinese Companies
  • The pressing need for strategic policy response to drug trafficking 
  • The perceived reduction in legal risk leading to increased drug use in America
