in Substance Abuse

Every day an estimated 30 tons of cocaine is being transported within the Caribbean region, according to intelligence officers.

Over the course of a year, up to 1,400 tons of cocaine is shipped across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe, with only 43 tons, or 3 percent, of the cocaine seized by security officials.
