Journalist Hazel Friedman was on assignment in Thailand to document the stories of the increasing number of South Africans convicted as drug mules when she made a horrifying discovery. Many of the drug traffickers are used as unwitting decoys. These individuals find themselves coerced or deceived into drug running. The 'dead cows' are set up to be arrested, thereby allowing professional mules carrying much larger quantities of drugs to slip past undetected. She concluded that many drug mules are victims of human trafficking - as pawns readily sacrificed in a profit-driven war waged by the omnipotent global drug barons.
