But there is a reason Saviano is such a global star...he knows this territory so well and is a master storyteller and educator on the hugely influential world of drug cartels, buyers and dealers.

Any product that does that without regulation immediately corrupts everyone involved - and leaves a trail of mayhem. Great discussions at RBC.
