The French Connection was a scheme through which heroin was smuggled from Turkey to France and then to the United States and Canada.

The operation started in the s, reached its peak in the s, and was dismantled in the s. It was responsible for providing the vast majority of the heroin used in the United States at the time.

The French Connection is one of THE iconic films of the s. The movie’s title comes from the actual drug trade that saw heroin shipped from Turkey to the southern French port of Marseille and then onto the United States.
