Bars and clubs often are drug marketplaces for organized crime in many cities throughout the world, and woe to the owners who do not allow the illicit trade be conducted at their premises.
The 'Ndrangheta or Calabrian Mafia brutally beat Rosy Canale after she refused to capitulate to their demands to allow party treats to be sold out of her disco in Reggio Calabria, and now that she's releasing a book about her experiences the thugs once again are targeting her as reported by John Hooper for The Guardian. However, the courageous mother insists "I'm not the sort of person whose mouth they can shut."
The 'Ndrangheta dominates the European cocaine trade, and has established itself in the United States, Canada and Australia with little push back from those countries.
