Drug Crime in Florida
Florida is one of the prime spots in the U.S. for international drug trafficking as well as interstate drug crimes. Its physical layout, with approximately 8,000 miles of coastline as well as numerous international airports, provides ample opportunity to organizations and groups looking to smuggle drugs into or out of the state. Importation and exportation by sea is most often the method used for drug trafficking, but air and land transportation methods are also used.
Cocaine is the primary drug threat in Florida, arriving by any one of a number of means from South America, where it originates. Additionally, methamphetamine labs (meth labs) and marijuana cultivation and trafficking are an issue. The DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) is a federal agency which, along with Florida law enforcement, works to crack down hard upon any and everyone suspected of a drug crime and vigorously enforces U.S. controlled substances laws to their fullest extent.
