We recommend drug education for children and teens so they know the full truth about drugs. For anyone in the family struggling with addition, we strongly recommend drug rehab admission immediately to save their life.

Narconon East US Community Services Director warns parents to keep a closer eye on children and anyone in the family who is struggling with drug addiction. Signs are pointing to Florida once again being in the drug cartel cross-hairs, bringing increased violence and drug trafficking to the state. Children and those struggling with drug addiction are particularly vulnerable.

A study of recent online new reports shows the growing pattern. The first-ever Colombian drug trafficking submarine was found in the Caribbean Sea. More than 15,000 pounds of cocaine were recovered from the sub after the crew sank the vessel.

Late in 2011, a surface boat was intercepted off the Dominican Republic with $13 million in marijuana aboard. In October 2011, a partly-finished submarine was found on the east coast of Colombia. The construction site, near Cordoba on the northern coast, was the first one found on the Caribbean side of the continent. All others have been on the west side where they would use the Eastern Pacific to move drugs into Mexico. From there, they would be moved across the border into the US. In January 2012, the Drug Enforcement Administration announced the seizure of 924 pounds of cocaine from a boat approaching the shores of Puerto Rico.

Islands like Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic are perfect for South American cartels who want a relay point for drugs headed into the US or Europe. In February 2012, various news sources carried reports that US drug enforcement analysts were predicting further expansion of these Gulf Coast routes. Part of the data examined by these analysts includes evidence that the Sinaloa Cartel may be largely responsible for expansion of the Caribbean channels. Homicide rates in the Caribbean have been high overall for some years, but have recently increased in the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas.

“The sandy beaches and beauty of Florida makes it hard to believe that it is once again the target of South and Central American drug cartels. Thankfully, Florida law enforcement is already working diligently to eradicate drug trafficking in the state. However, the battle is still waging and we warn parents to keep a close eye on their children, especially their teenagers and anyone else in the family who may be struggling with addiction. We recommend drug education for children and teens so they know the full truth about drugs. For anyone in the family struggling with addition, we strongly recommend drug rehab admission immediately to save their life,” says Jeannine Dowdell, Community Services Director Narconon East US.

Ultimately there are only three outcomes for someone addicted to drugs or alcohol: prison, death, or effective rehabilitation leading to sobriety. With Florida potentially in the crosshairs of more drug trafficking and violence, there is no time to wait. The path to recovery should be started immediately.
