I know I'm late for the party, but the reality is that drugs represent less tan 0.05% of total trade with the US. Trade with the USA represents 80% of total trade, that means that Drugs are dwarfed by legal trade by a huge margin.

Soccer wasn't coined in the US. Something to do with association of something. They (Brits, I think) took the "soc" from association and called it soccer. Or something along those lines.
