Banner Year for Drug Seizures in Paraguay
Via the BBC: Paraguay drug seizures up by 39% in 2013
Officials in Paraguay say the amount of drugs seized in the country in 2013 rose by 39%.
Paraguay’s national counternarcotics body (Senad) said it had seized 461 tonnes of marijuana and 3.3 tonnes of cocaine, up from 176 and 3.1 tonnes respectively.
According to a 2013 report by the US state department, Paraguay is a "major drug transit country and money laundering centre".
Of course, such records simply indicate that there is a lot of product out there to be seized.
And, here’s a factoid for future reference:
Paraguay is the largest producer of cannabis in South America, much of which is smuggled to Brazil.
