International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) notes that natural disasters have also posed new challenges to the drug prevention efforts in Central America and the Caribbean. Before the quake, Haiti was already known to be used as a major transit area for illicit drug shipments bound for North America owing to its long and poorly patrolled coastline, as well as the presence of several clandestine airstrips on its territory.

Countries on the black-list:
Afghanistan, Bahamas, Bolivia, Burma, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Laos, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan , Panama, Peru, the Dominican Republic and Venezuela.
