  1. Because the United States is full of crackheads and I used to party like crazy to the point I thought my heart was gonna give out. But it's sad seeing the people I used to party with in their 40s and 50s now still doing blow🤣

  2. You got media internet and celebrities and rappers constantly glorifying drug consumption, millions of people desperate for attention, an unstable future economically speaking, a poor Colombian country with a corrupt government that needs to create jobs but doesn't have the infrastructures or requirements to do so, an increase of drug consumption by the US which prompts Colombia to produce more, social anxiety and lack of self esteem due to a sick social media which is proven to induce drug consumption on unstable people, countries who need to create markets in order to survive, being that their climate is perfect to produce drugs, what do you think it's going to happen. In the US alone last year there were more drug overdoses than their ENTIRE history. Recipe for tragedy

  3. When goverments are corrupt…meaning all goverments…the sky is the limit..why not make everyone rich..not just the politicians..cartels..dirty cops etc…

  4. When do Casino's and drug dealers make the most during the month in USA. Around the 1st of every month because that's when Social Security and welfare goes out and they got money to blow. That's the facts folks.

    If USA did mandatory random drug testing on recipients, half the problems would stop over night.

  5. Hey I can tell the Colombians what will help them. Grow Kratom trees import them from Thailand and from Indonesia and introduce them to Columbia they will grow great and it produces a great medicine off the plant and it kills pain it Boost energy helps anxiety depression. Over there the sugarcane farmers and the banana farmers and the rubber tree farmers they keep one or two leaves in their pocket. They pull a leaf out it's about 6 inches long. It tastes bitter they strip half the leaf down to the middle vein for 20 seconds spit it end of the other half of the leaf and put it back in their pocket. Within one minute your mouth goes numb within five minutes there is no pain and it'll fix all kinds of other ailments. The addiction rate is only about 10 to 15% compared to fucking nasty heroin. Your in the prime place to grow Kratom trees.

  6. Government, you live in a jungle, food is abundant, you need money to pay your corrupt government, it's only the biggest exported good, because of the profit margin.

  7. So first we see this Lady in a Police Helicopter and in the next split of a second, she is with the Drug producers and telling every little detail to the Camera????

  8. It’s wild how weed is a plant hat grows cut it down dry an smoke this plant cut the leafs off an add acid battery acid cement gasoline an other shit 😂😂😂😂

  9. Pay decent fuking wages and people won't need to sell drugs people sell drugs because what you get paid from a normal job isn't no where near enough to survive hence why people sell drugs pay people a decent fuking wage then people won't need to sell drugs problem solved

  10. It's because of scumbags like me taking every single weekend. Spending money I don't have for a quick high. Then I can't even get a boner with the prostitute I order.

  11. god damnit, they want food and jobs, bring investor to their place, build factory, ease up on the investment regulation

  12. Well, Maybe the cocaine industry is not thriving because of the citizens wanting it to produce, but because OTHER parts of the western world actually offer the demand by CONSUMING cocaine?? That is a reason I would like to see discussed in a video like this..

  13. I've watched a BBC reporter and now a Vice reporter enter the fields where the coca plant is processed, but for some strange reason the "Authorities" can't locate the processing plant. Interesting…….
