Isis and Italian mafia teaming up to smuggle cannabis into Europe

The Islamic State is working with the Italian mafia to smuggle cannabis to Europe, a new investigation shows.

While smoking and handling hashish is forbidden under Sharia law and the group punishes those living in its territory in Syria and Iraq caught using it, its leaders are making millions from helping smuggle it, according to Franco Roberti, Italy’s national anti-terror and anti-mafia chief.
