Drug trafficking harms so many people, but it is incredible lucrative for the cartel members who smuggle illegal substances.

These drug lords are used to living in the lap of luxury, and when they die, their graves are also pretty extravagant. Jardines Del Humaya, which is in the Mexican state of Sinaloa near a town known for drug activity, is a cemetery unlike any other. The architecture is incredible and the graves are completely different from anything you've ever seen before.

Each grave is in fact more like a house, a place for the deceased to spend the afterlife in comfort.

Inside, beloved objects are featured prominently in shrines that can include weapons and other items of value.

Because they are so opulent and large, family members also come for longer periods of time, drinking and celebrating the often short lives of their relatives.

The cemetery is in many ways a celebration of youth. The people who get involved in drug crimes often die young in what is a violent and disturbing trade.
