Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
New York City
It is with proper pride that we dedicate this book to the often-
unsung U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officers who have so
often, so obscurely, died or languished in undeserved imprisonment
in the silent war of the United States against the British
monarchy's illegal drug traffic into our nation.
This book is published with special thanks to those intelligence and
law enforcement officials who have given us such extraordinary
assistance in cross-checking facts in putting the story together.
These have included officials not only in the USA, but our nation's
French ally, and also patriots in Canada embittered against what the
Bronfmans and others have done to their nation and our own.
It is no exaggeration to sum up the situation thus: the only proper
comparison for today's British drug traffic into the USA is the
British monarchy's 19th century Opium Wars against China. There is
more than a parallel. The same Hong Shang and other banking interests
that developed their wealth in the China opium trade are involved in
the financial side of the traffic against the USA aided by those
leading elements of the Zionist Lobby which have controlled
organized crime in the USA and the Caribbean since the early 1920s.
This is a calculated form of political warfare against the USA by
the British monarchy. Not only are the London-centered Canadian,
Hong Kong, Singapore, and British West Indies financial interests
involved in pulling tens of billions out of the USA our biggest
source of balance-of-payments losses but this is a pre- calculated
political warfare. The evil British intelligence executive and head of
the Aristotle Society Bertrand Russell
proposed this use of drugs as political subversion back during the
1920s. Among Russell's most prominent collaborators in this effort
was Aldous Huxley, coordinator of the 1960s introduction of
psychedelic substances to U.S. youth.
The fight against illegal drugs and against the evil forces of
"decriminalization" is nothing less than a war against Britain, to
the purpose of saving our youth and our nation from the destruction
the British monarchy has projected for us.

Dope, Inc. was commissioned in September 1978 by U.S. Labor Party
National Chairman Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., and was produced under
his direction. At that time the Labor Party launched an
international campaign against organized crime and drug traffic. As LaRouche has pointed out numerous times in the pages of the Labor
Party's newspaper, New Solidarity, the forces that run the drug
trade are the same forces that are now unleashing every capability
including scenarios for thermo- nuclear war to halt the emergence
of a new monetary system represented by the July 6 establishment of
the European Monetary System in Bremen, West Germany, a system
founded on the principles elaborated by LaRouche in his 1975
proposal for an International Development Bank. An October 1978
statement issued by LaRouche "A National Strategy to Control
Crime" formed the kernel of this book.
This book is the product of a 100-person combined research team of
the U.S. Labor Party in New York City, the Mexican Labor Party in
Mexico City, and the European Labor Party in Wiesbaden, West
Germany. The efforts of this team, since its founding in January
1974 under the direction of Lyndon LaRouche, drew the circle tighter
around the perpetrators of narcotics traffic over a period of years.
The authors particularly acknowledge the efforts of Marilyn James,
Richard Schulman, and Alfred Ross, whose research supplied the core
of this book, and the contributions of Kathy Burdman, Scott
Thompson, Paul Goldstein, Harald Hermann, Joseph Brewda, Roger
Moore, Michelle Steinberg, Peter Wyer, Karen Steinherz, and Peter
Ennis. Our appreciation also goes to Linda Frommer, the book's
editor, who accomplished the final stage of the manuscript's
The authors are unfortunately unable to thank by name the many
former and currently serving law enforcement officers of several
nations who took the greatest risk in coming forward with
information and experience to indict the most dangerous enemy of

America is at war. For the first time since 1865, the battle- ground
is not abroad, but on the streets and schools of American cities.
Casualties registered in the course of the conflict are incomparably
higher than at any other time in American history. We are fighting
for our lives, and in the most literal sense, for the lives of our
children. Until now, we have been losing.
The enemy's most deadly weapon is dope.
Unlike most wars, which force both combatants deeply into debt, in
this undeclared war the offensive power becomes wealthier and
wealthier, while the stupefied victim becomes impoverished. In
return for destroying the minds, and in many cases the lives, of the
48 million Americans hit by this weapon, the enemy exacts a payment
of $50 billion in retail drug sales alone in the United States, and
$200 billion worldwide. That $200 billion, robbed from the world's
productive sector, is the slush fund for everything evil in the
world, including political terrorism and including the murder of
There is not a parent, thinking over the destruction of a child, who
really believes that drug abuse is a self-inflicted crime.
Americans, no matter what else they have learned to tolerate,
believe that the advancement of the next generation is part of the
way things should be. If an entire generation of Americans is in
jeopardy of being lost, then someone has done this to them.
We will tell you precisely who has done this who has the ability
to control the flow of dope from the mountains of the Far East and
the valleys of Colombia to American high schools, who controls the
banks which launder the $200 billion in take, who puppeteers the
crime syndicates in charge of retail distribution,
and who corrupts our political life. It is the same people against
whom we fought the American Revolution, who set up the world
opium trade a century and a half ago, and who run it today: the
aristocratic and banking oligarchy of Great Britain..
Look into the motionless stupor of the mind of a youth who has
been sapped and destroyed by addiction. Incapable of reason,
incapable of thought, today's addicted youth lives for only one
thing: his "fix," his "high." Then consider the body count of
Britain's Opium War against the United States: Over 48 million
Americans, mostly between the ages of 12 and 25 are officially
known by the Drug Enforcement Administration to be frequent
users of heroin, cocaine, and marijuana. Over one-fourth of the
American people are severely wounded or dead in a war the
country has not yet mobilized to fight.
The Drug Enforcement Administration has released these
statistics on drug use by Americans:
500,000 daily users (other sources place this hardcore addict figure
at between 750,000 and 1 million)
4,000,000 occasional users
575,000 users between the ages of 12-17
between the ages of 18-25
1,000,000 users over the age of 25
11,000,000 daily users
24,000,000 occasional users
These figures do not include that portion of the population addicted
to amphetamines, barbiturates, and hallucinogens. This figure alone
according to recent reports from the National Institute of Drug
Abuse constituted between 12 and 25 percent of all patients admitted
to federally funded drug clinics during 1977. The last census taken
of drug abuse in 1974, issued as a Report to the President,
calculated conservatively that close to one and a half million
Americans had "gotten into trouble"been
arrested, treated, or hospitalized through the use of amphetamines
or barbiturates. When calculated for only youth of high school age,
the rate of amphetamine and barbiturate use was four times as great
as that of the adult population.
Since the inauguration of Jimmy Carter, whole categories of drug
abuse are no longer monitored. The computer system of the Drug
Enforcement Administration has been shut down. Behind that action is
the grim fact that many of Mr. Carter's domestic policy advisors are
on record as being committed to decriminalization of deadly drugs
beginning with marijuana. If such policies go through, statistics
will be meaningless: drug abuse will treble within months of
The $200 billion take for the British drug traders
will climb to $300 billion.
The world's biggest business
How is the $200 billion monstrosity of world drug revenues hidden?
In the most important way, it is not. The flow of narcotics and
dirty money is conducted in the full light of day, the same way
rum-running was conducted during Prohibition. Only misdirection
prevents the public from understanding who the enemy is. Massive
crimes are not hidden under cover of darkness, but under the cover
of an effective lie. The operative lie in this case is "Free
When Sam Bronfman sold his rotgut to American mobsters, supplied by
the old British distillers and financed by the old British banks, it
was a matter of free enterprise: what the mob did with it after it
crossed the American border was of no concern to him. When Meyer
Lansky made his first heroin connection with Britain's dope-trading
Keswick family in Shanghai in 1920, the sale was legal and in the
light of day; what the mob did with the heroin later was not the
responsibility of Britain's Far East traders.
Now, when the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank "launders" the
$10 billion annual flow of narcotics money through Hong Kong, is
it anything but a matter of "free enterprise" where their deposits
come from and their loans go? When the Bronfmans in Canada
and the Jacobs family of Buffalo finance organized crime, is it
anything more than a "free enterprise" business relationship? The
entire army of the enemy was built, and functions, under the open
view of the public.
In fact, the chain of interlocking "free enterprise" relationships
that describes the flow of drugs and dirty money in and out of the
United States only masks the type of conspiracies that Americans see
not in pulp thrillers, but in nightmares. We will uncover these
conspiracies, the spider's web of the British monarchy the
Italian-surname organized crime syndicates, London's Zionist-cover
terrorist operation, the secrets of Peking's dope-running foreign
intelligence organization. We will trace them all back to their
common "mother," the great aristocratic families of Britain.
With this report, you will see your enemy as he is, behind the veils
of misdirection, past the Hollywood parodies of organized crime. We
are now in sight of the day when we will turn the tide against the
dope warriors of Great Britain by striking at the head of the
The Rate of Increase in Marijuana Use in the USA
The above graph of confiscations of marijuana by federal enforcement
agencies provides only a rough barometer of the accelerated increase
of marijuana smuggling into and use in the USA between 1969 and
1974. As is common knowledge, from 1974 to the present, marijuana
use has gone up at a rate whose acceleration dwarfs that depicted
In the past year alone, "drug decriminalization" campaigning
by British agents-of-influence in the White House, and governors and
Congressmen in the hip-pockets of Edgar Bronfman and Meyer Lansky,
has caused marijuana use to increase at an astronomical rate.
