Cocaine Haul not as Big as Originally Thought
By Dr. Steven L. Taylor

Via the BBC: Colombia cuts drugs haul figure

The authorities in Colombia have revised the total of drugs seized in a haul on Monday from around 25 tonnes of cocaine to just over 13 tonnes.

It was found buried in 1,000 separate packages near the town of Pizarro, west of the capital, Bogota, buried in an estuary accessible only by sea.

Ok, less than originally reported, but as I have been known to say in these instances: that’s still a lot of blow.

Defence Minister Juan Manuel Santos had said on Monday the haul was the “biggest in the history of Colombia”.

No explanation has been given for the sharp downward revision of the weight.
