    Make In Range

    In this example:

    "The final link in the Tucson chain is the distributor, who may be connected to a Mexican organization or may have a separate group. The Tucson distributor usually makes in the range of $100 to $500 per pound, investigators and traffickers said, but takes whatever price the market will bear. "

    Is something missing between "The Tucson distributor usually makes" and "in the range of $100 to $500 per pound", since "make" is transitive?
    Would this be better:

    "The Tucson distributor usually makes an amount in the range of $100 to $500 per pound"

    ?

    Re: Make In Range

    So, "to make in the range of $2000 a month" is wrong?

    I wouldn't worry too much about the transitivity/intransitivity of the verb "make" in that sentence. The highlighted part in the sentence is quite common in English. If it is a concern for you, you could say that the word "money" is understood after "makes".
