1. The Colombian Cartel Isn’t Limited to Being On Land

Smuggling narcotics into the United States is big business for any cartel looking to be at the top of the heap. Money is power, and power means everything to the very structure of these criminal organizations. Members have no problem going to any lengths necessary, as this picture proves. Nobody would’ve considered building submarines to be the Colombian Cartel’s forte. Show them any type of resistance and they’ll diligently work until they’ve found a way around the problem, though. Cartels are always looking inventive and new ways of smuggling their goods into the United States. The cocaine trade is competitive and competing cartels like that of the Colombians are willing to smuggle their product into America anyway they can.
