The Narco Subs Infographic Breaks Down Underwater Cocaine Smuggling

Colombian drug cartels are a hot topic from Hollywood films to popular news media, and the Narco Subs Infographic breaks down one of the primary means of smuggling cocaine from South America to the United States. Narcotic carrying submarine vessels are no new invention, but as technology continues to become more sophisticated, so do the vessels harboring illegal substances. Many of these modern subs cost upwards of two million dollars and require months of construction from dozens of workers to ensure optimal security and safety of transport.

One of the most striking statistics presented by the infographic is that one third of all cocaine in America is brought by submarine and each sub is equipped to carry between four and 12 tons of the stimulant narcotic, which equates to approximately 200-400 million dollars!
