110. Since WW2 is probably very accurate
Some argue when Clark Clifford wrote the national secrity act the main purpose was to cover up the drug trade involvement.

Maybe it would be easy to dismiss if there wasn't so much evidence for cia directed money laundering and the fact that Clifford himself was one of the main suspects on trial for the BCCI scandal.

Regardless of the main source money laundering is big business:

"Senator Carl Levin has gone on record saying: "Estimates are that $500 billion to $1 trillion of international criminal proceeds are moved internationally and deposited into bank accounts annually. It is estimated that half of the money comes to the United States..." The other half is laundered through European banks."

But it always gets played down:
