For instance, the offense of drug tracking has affected many countries both locally and international levels. Even though most people understand the critical offense of drug trafficking, it is still a common societal problem in many countries. Hence, this paper intends to explore the real understanding of delinquency and crime and accounts for the psychological, sociological, and biological variable based on some responses that aim at increasing safety in the society. The relationships among these interactive characteristics of individuals can be explained using the knowledge of Agnew's General Strain Theory. Agnew's General Strain Theory captures the attention of situational context which can lead individuals into crime and delinquency (Brezina, 2017). For instance, individuals in any social setting may experience unfamiliar circumstances but they must psychologically respond to the adverse circumstance.

Secondly, this concept incorporates common situations that may surround the general life of an individual. To achieve in finding solutions to the problem of drug trafficking, Walker (2014) in the used growing literature to explain clearly why people are engaged in drug trafficking. First, the main variables revolving around social, biological, and psychological relationship across theories were isolated in relation to individual perspective towards drug trafficking. Secondly, relationships were formulated among consequences of drug trafficking and related them to psychological, biological and social life. Furthermore, the side-by-side approach incorporates partitioned cases of drug trafficking crime and delinquency into explanatory theories. For instance, a researcher can use features of deviants such as age, class, gender, and race or features of deviance such as property crime, drug crime, and violent crime as intuitive sense point.

The next process integrates many theoretical constructs that give a clear explanation of cases in every empirical typology. Finally, up-and-down or deductive integration deals with the identification of a unique abstraction level aimed at incorporating other cases of drug trafficking. The three methods are the main building blocks used to combine causes of drug trafficking to individuals although they do not account for all situations. Lastly, it was argued that high social support reduced the chances of being victimized. Therefore, social support has a significant effect on criminal activities, cause on theoretical variables and empirically linked to the crime. In addition, law enforcers generate and enforce laws gathering information about those who were involved in drug trafficking crime. The decisions made in this response borrow knowledge from social control, social learning, and strain theories where people are believed to follow either of the two delinquency pathways.

First, individual learn how to commit delinquent offenses after interacting with delinquent peers. First, interactional effect puts more emphasis on reciprocal effects on the causal structure at the start of the delinquency. This means that it makes an assumption that important variables in the model have a feedback or reciprocal feedback effects. For example, it relates that weakening social bond encourages a person to be associated with delinquent peers, and it further theorized that individuals who associate with delinquent peers also weaken social bonds. Secondly, the interactional concept emphasizes etiological delinquency and criminal development in drug trafficking. This concept explains stages that occur at every stage of the individual from the beginning, continuation, and discontinuation of delinquency. References Agnew, R. Foundation for a general strain theory of crime and delinquency.
