How do you smuggle drugs (effectively)?
Title: California: Smuggling Tunnels Unearthed at Border
Date: April 4th, 2014
The first, and most recent, is the tunnel system. Two drug tunnels were recently discovered in Mexico. It was about 600 yards long and had a pulley at one end. Assessment: C+ while this is an impressive length, many tunnels have been found in this area in the last few years. Gotta mix it up a bit guys, keep them on their toes. It was equipped with make shift lighting so props to that.
Next is the engineer system. Drug cannons have been used to shoot drugs over the United State’s border. Assessment: B- this is one of the most legal illegal drug exchanges, no one has to risk the border exchange, and is one smart development. It does have its minuses such as the fact that the landing must be precisely calculated and no one must see the package delivery—a few variables that are near unpredictable.
I will subdivide the next category of smuggling across the border hidden in something.
Piñatas! Seriously though, piñatas are one of the most colourful ways to smuggle drugs. This assessment is at a C though because it is not very well thought through. The piñatas will inevitably be checked at the border and discovered, but hey, it is the thought that counts.
Smuggling drugs hidden in compartments of cars or trucks seems to be the most frequently utilized form. While it is the most discovered it also has the highest success rate because of this repetition. It gets a B, though it is not recommended.
The best idea I have come up with on how to smuggle drugs is trained animals. Animals are not stopped at the border and if they are caught they have little capacity to “rat” you out, if you know what I mean. They could potentially be equipped with non-traceable cameras and detonators so headquarters could see potential capturers or followers and then the animal could be obliterated. The animal of choice would be pigeons or monkeys. Monkeys could, of course, carry more drugs but pigeons would be less conspicuous. This combines all of the best, the technology, the intuition, the discreteness, the cuteness, and the safeness. Therefore I give this method an A--for Princess Anna.
So maybe I am not the most qualified to determine the best ways to smuggle drugs but school has taught me a lot about how to not do things. Human error accounts for most of the mistakes made in this world and we could eliminate a lot of this error by having animals do the work. True, it may be inhumane, but it is for the best of the drug community—an undeniably large part of the Mexican economy.
