EISSA, Sergio Gabriel. Armed forces and drug trafficking: A dangerous adventure. The Mexican case and implications for Argentina. Rev. IUS [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.44, pp.29-50.  Epub 01-Jul-2019. ISSN 1870-2147.

This article proposes two routes of analysis. First, the situation of drug trafficking in Argentina and the legal alternatives to involve the armed forces are analyzed. Based on this last point, and following the predominant argument that an increase in institutional costs for the drug market would decrease the supply, it is inferred what consequences would result from the involvement of military troops. Second, what happened in Mexico is analyzed with the gradual increase in institutional costs, which culminated in the involvement of the armed forces in the direct fight against drug trafficking. Both routes only show alarm signals that should be taken into account when implementing a policy.
