  • Abstract:
    An increase in the detected and estimated transatlantic flow of cocaine smuggled from South America to the United States and Europe in 2000 has been reported by the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). According to the ONDCP "Annual Assessment of Cocaine Movement - 2000" (AACM), some 515 metric tons are estimated to have potentially arrived in the United States, by various modes of transportation, substantially more than the 382 metric tons recorded in 1999. The tonnage of cocaine detected departing South America in direct transit to Europe, increased by 39% during 2000 to 104 metric tons. Nearly all of this cocaine flow occurred in commercial maritime vessels destined primarily for the Iberian Peninsula, the primary gateway for Europe-bound cocaine shipments. The AACM estimates that because of the difficulty in detecting commercial maritime shipments of cocaine, especially in containerized cargo, actual cocaine flow to Europe could be as great as 200 metric tons.
