Friday Retrospect: Looting and Drugs?

A while ago in the discussion appeared the opinion  by Marc Balcells ‏@artcrimeHQ from New York City who wrote:
Drugs trafficked alongside smuggled art… not many cases found, against general assumptions on the topic
This prompted my post (PACHI Sunday, 17 February 2013, 'Antiquities and Narcotics: What is the Connection?') commenting
It's a notable characteristic of those that write about what they insist on calling "art crime" that all too often they are concerned with saying what they have discovered "does not" happen ("contrary to what people believe") [....].
It is good to note that in the volume of which Prof Balcells was an editor ('Cultural Property Crime: An Overview and Analysis of Contemporary Perspectives and Trends Brill), the link between trafficking illicit antiquities and other illicit goods, including antiquities, is made by at least one of the authors (Donna Yates).
