Cocaine seizures, fatal overdoses on the rise in Florida

MIAMI —  Are the days of the "Cocaine Cowboys" making a comeback?

Cocaine, largely responsible for the Miami drug wars and a sharp rise in crime in the 1970s and 80s, is on the rise in Florida — stumping federal officials who spent decades and billions working to dismantle violent criminal enterprises. At the height of the cocaine boom, lawless drug lords had free reign as they battled for control of the drug market, sometimes blazing guns in broad daylight.

The war on drugs never ended but users mostly moved on to other drugs. But officials say decades later, cocaine once again is growing in popularity.

The Coast Guard has made a series of recent drug busts involving cocaine that harken back to the 1980s. In the most recent one, the Coast Guard seized nearly 35,000 pounds of cocaine in Port Everglades in early February, worth an estimated $466 million. Adm. Peter Brown, Coast Guard 7th district commander, said the drugs account for 21 separate, suspected drug-smuggling operations.

Florida does have a large concentration of aliens, legal and otherwise.  I doubt, though, they are responsible somehow since democrats are always telling us how wonderful and law abiding they are - just like the young lads in MS 13.  No, it must be Trump supporters bringing it in. :whistle:

And Trumps wall would stop this, how?
