Drug Interdiction

One of the latest alliances between business and government is the Business Anti-Smuggling Coalition, which started last August in San Diego and is spreading to other ports.

It is purely voluntary, but Mattel executives are having no problem recruiting dozens of other patriotic business leaders to join the alliance.
