The island Caribbean serves as a major pipeline between Latin America (the world's largest producer of illicit narcotics), and the United States (the world's largest illegal narcotics consumer) . Many countries of the Caribbean have bilateral agreements with the U.S. and one another. Further, since the mid 199Os a host of Caribbean nations have signed "ship rider" agreements with the United States, vastly improving the potential for cooperation. Yet, no single region-wide plan exists to coordinate efforts against the transshipment of narcotics. Given the scope of the problem, and the recognition by individual countries of their limitations and constraints, a framework may exist to establish a region-wide counternarcotics regime.
