Slavery: More illegal than drugs?

In the promo a few minutes ago for tonight's installment of CNN's series on human trafficking, Mira Sorvino said the United States government has spent "in 10 years on human trafficking what we spend in a month on the war on drugs."

"Let's wage a war on slavery," she said.

I'd actually like to hear the argument against reworking those two budgets.

My wife tells me that Sorvino, an actress, has been working against human trafficking for a while. "I'm sure she has her facts straight," Marilyn says.
