Best Answer

Smuggling occurs when a nation applies high taxes to an item, or banns an item, such as during the Prohibition era in the USA when alcohol was deemed to be illegal. In that case, Canada, right next door, became the biggest supplier to the USA. Huge profits resulted. Many millionaires were created. Today the product being smuggled into the USA from Canada is pot, tons of it a week. Huge profits are resulting. Some things never change do they?
