Last month a narco-submarine was seized in Panama carrying millions of dollars’ worth of cocaine. A narco-sub is a homemade semisubmersible or fully submersible vessel used by cartels to smuggle drugs. They’ve been used in the illegal narcotics trade for decades — usually to travel between North and South America. Last year, however, a narco-sub was apprehended in Spain after crossing the Atlantic Ocean. This video will give some basic information on these drug subs, review some viral seizures by the US Coast Guard, and talk to H.I. Sutton and Ioan Grillo about the unusual transportation method.
