After a case of two British nationals having sexual intercourse on a family beach, authorities have introduced some new guidelines for residents and tourists alike. Now, loud music, swearing, kissing, wearing skirts of inappropriate length, and even holding hands and hugging in public has been banned (, 2009). Instead of being on the extreme end and banning the activities mentioned above, which are quite common in the tourists' own countries, Dubai can take a similar "encourage, not discourage" approach (Bartlett, 2007). Dubai can mention the Arab and Muslim culture in any brochures and advertisements of the destination; otherwise, if tourists hear about such bans and limitation, they might want to visit an alternate destination. The same encouraging approach as that of Egypt can be taken towards construction companies, in which financial assets could be provided. Similarly, Emirates Airline could continue to purchase the new A-380 aircrafts as they are more environmentally friendly. Research shows that 45% British tourists are willing to spend more on vacation if environmental damages can be reversed, 67% Americans think it is important that they do not damage the destinations they visit, and 69% Danish tourists are willing to pay more for eco-labelled hotels (Bartlett, 2007). All three countries above generate high numbers of tourists. Thus government officials in Dubai can assume that if they want to fund in environmentally friendly activities, this will potentially attract more tourists.
And of course it is the . demand for drugs that fuels Mexican drug smuggling in the first place. Take, for example, the current heroin epidemic in the United States. It originated in the over–prescription of medical opiates to treat pain. The subsequent efforts to reduce the over–prescription of painkillers led those Americans who became dependent on them to resort to illegal heroin. That in turn stimulated a vast expansion of poppy cultivation in Mexico, particularly in Guerrero. In 2015, Mexico’s opium poppy cultivation reached perhaps 28,000 hectares, enough to distill about 70 tons of heroin (which is even more than the 24–50 tons estimated to be necessary to meet the . demand).
