drug trafficking

I have to be honest, maybe this makes me sound ignorant, but I truly, truly do not understand how some countries put people on death row, and execute them, for drug-related crimes. I don’t support drug trafficking at all, obviously, but I don’t believe it is a crime that should be punishable by death, either.

Just $80 worth of coca leaves from a Colombian farmer can undergo a simple process to become $800 worth of coca paste. The paste can then be transformed into a $2,147 brick of pure cocaine, which holds a $34,700 value after crossing the US border and becomes $120,000 in sales on the streets of NYC. 

If you calculate the cost from farm to nose, cocaine trafficking yields a 150,000% profit.

The bodies of seven men with ice picks in their chests were left in a public street in 2013 by the notorious Knights Templar in Michoacan, Mexico.

Vicious Mexican cartel forced members to eat human hearts

As if decapitation and ripping apart live victims weren’t bad enough, the horrid Knights Templar drug cartel also forced its members to eat human hearts, according to a government official.

The Michoacan state syndicate is arguably the country’s most horrific organized crime gang.

The region has been crippled for nearly two years by fighting between vigilantes and syndicate gunmen. Chaos in the agricultural state has worsened in past months as rivalries erupted between various factions of the self-defense groups.

Even by the murderous standards of Mexican cartels, the Knights Templar is particularly gruesome. Its members are known for cutting off the heads of those they consider enemies and sometimes boiling people alive.

Its former spiritual leader, Narzio Moreno, aka El Mas Loco (The Craziest One) was notorious for his love of knives and guns and was one of the world’s most-wanted cartel leaders. Mexican authorities twice reported killing him — once in 2010 and again in 2014. It was his decision to add cannibalism to his syndicate’s arsenal.

Making members eat a human heart as a test of loyalty was part of Moreno’s way of finding traitors.

“The ritual ranged from dismembering people they intended to kill to sometimes serving up the heart,” Alfredo Castillo, Michoacan’s federal security commissioner, said on local television this week. He did not elaborate on whether the practice is still in use.

90 Pounds Of Cocaine Found On Cargo Ship Owned By Anti-Drug Senator’s Family.

A cargo ship connected to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell was recently stopped and searched before departing from Colombia. During the search, Colombian Coast Guard agents seized roughly 90 pounds of cocaine.

The drugs were found on the Ping May, which is a vessel operated by the Foremost Maritime Corporation, a company owned by Mitch McConnell’s in-laws, the Chao family. This connection is not only relevant because of the family connection, but also because the Chao family has often made large donations to McConnell’s campaigns.

In fact, the Chao family has been funding McConnell since the late 1980s. Years later, in 1993, McConnell married Elaine Chao and secured the Chao family as one of his primary sources for investments.

A gift worth somewhere between 5 and 25 million dollars from the Chao Family made McConnel one of the richest senators in the country in 2008.

The Foremost Maritime Corporation is currently operating 16 dry bulk cargo ships, most of which are currently still in service.

What makes this case even more interesting is that McConnell is well known as a staunch prohibitionist. In 1996, McConnell sponsored “The Enhanced Marijuana Penalties Act”, a bill designed to increase the mandatory minimum sentencing for people caught with marijuana.

Luis Gonzales, an official with the Colombian Coast Guard in Santa Marta told The Nation that the Ping May’s crew were questioned as part of the investigation, but that they have yet to file any charges in the case.

The war on drugs is an insult to the intelligence of the American people. There are mountains of evidence proving that the biggest importers of harmful, addictive, mind diminishing street drugs is the government. The drug laws that exist do not apply to the government agencies that bring these substances to our country. They are only designed to keep everyone else from this extremely lucrative business and give the establishment another reason to oppress people.

We have seen this all before during alcohol prohibition, where the government, law enforcement and organized crime were all working together and making an unbelievable amount of money in the black market. When black markets are created the crime rate goes up, taxes go up, prices go up and the police become more corrupt, all of this is inevitable. These are in fact the very consequences that any type of prohibition intends to create.

To solve these problems all that we have to do is end all prohibitions, this would cripple the black market and drastically reduce violence. This would also drastically reduce the reach of police and the state in general, which is why it is looked at as such an impossibility. Drug laws don’t do anything to prevent drug problems in our society, they only encourage violence, raise prices and criminalize half of the population.

It’s not his. He’s just holding it for a friend. He doesn’t even know what it is. There it is politicians are the ones bringing in the drugs and making the laws against drugs think about it, its a never ending cycle of money, they make money on the citizens by locking a lot of them up threw heavy jail sentences and fines plus win elections on anti drug platforms. 

If you smoked Colombian weed in the ‘70s and '80s, Tony Dokoupil would like to thank you: He says you paid for his swim lessons and kept him in the best private school in south Florida — at least for a little while.

Dokoupil’s father started selling marijuana during the Nixon era, and expanded his operation until he became a partner in what his son describes as the biggest East Coast dope ring of the Reagan years, smuggling marijuana into the U.S.

But Dokoupil didn’t know this until many years later, because his parents didn’t tell him. His mother continued to keep the secret after his father disappeared from their lives, when Dokoupil was 10. When he did find out, he wanted to know the whole story.

Senator Marco Rubio's Brother in Law: A Convicted Drug Trafficker

Barbara Rubio and Orlando Cicilia declined an interview with Univision Investiga. Mario Tabraue who was sentenced to 100 years in jail had his prison term reduced by 90 percent and is now free. He returned to the business of exotic animals which on occasion he has provided to Univision Entertainment programs.

Senator Marco Rubio has provided generous details about his family, expressing time and again during his successful 2009 U.S. senate campaign that he was proud of his parents’ efforts to build a better future for their four children in this country.

But there is one family episode that the Senator does not want to talk about. Univision Investiga has learned that in 1987, Rubio’s older sister Barbara was caught up in the year’s most significant antinarcotics operation in South Florida.

According to public records, federal prosecutors in Miami ordered the seizure of the home where Barbara Rubio lived with her husband Orlando Cicilia. Prosecutors suspected the home was being used for activities that violated drug laws. Another property owned by the couple, located in what today is an office building, was also subject to seizure for the same reason.
