Drug dealing and the dollar

An interesting thought meandered its way into my brain last night - with the dollar sitting at a historic low and not looking like it has any intention of taking a shake to itself and getting back to work - are drug dealers now finding the US unprofitable?

Also, if they've got stacks of paper dollars waiting to be laundered, are they diminishing in value?

Obviously I'm talking about serious international types rather than the wee skank who stands on street corners flogging retail amounts.

I know very little about how the drugs trade works (relying for my knowledge on films and bad documentaries), but it's worthy of a wee chuckle to think about your average Mr Big in hard drugs worrying about the profits he's losing because of the international currency markets.
