Countries at war may have a financial interest in other forms of crime such as illegal arms imports. Thus, establishing alliances with other countries illegal. a Therefore, a controversial issue is the extent to which the economically more advanced countries to promote transnational crime. For example, illicit drugs, many officials in consumer countries are likely to attribute responsibility to the producer countries and fail to consider how an existing culture pharmacological permitted the use of illicit drugs to develop. Also ignore the demand side of the equation, since it focused and on the assumption that the proceeds generated by illicit drugs only appropriated by foreign producers and large distributors. Therefore, considering the considerable revenue generated by illicit drugs consumption in the countries themselves.
A second controversial issue is that transnational organized crime is seen by many officials to be the result of the increasing number and variety of individuals and groups to reach more economically advanced countries. Since these people and groups come from places scattered around the world, often from countries in transition or in crisis, that are perceived as difficult to control and tight integration. The newcomers are said to bring with them their social and commercial networks, which make it difficult for law enforcement and at the same time, facilitating the "conspiracy." No attention is paid to the same difficulties encountered by law enforcement before the arrival of migrants and the commercial "conspiracy" is already contained in the host countries long before they are "invaded" by foreigners.
