Why would hiding a few pounds worth of synthetic organs be more difficult than
hiding thousands of tons of marijuana? Why would the demand for synthetic organs
be less than the demand for marijuana? Why would the profits from the illicit organ
trade be less than that of the illicit drug trade? Why would you find few people
willing to engage in such a risky but enormously profitable enterprise when many
thousand take similar risks in the drug trade?
