In 1979, the U.S. Customs Service reported that 87% of all marijuana seizures in the U.S. were made in the South Florida area. Due to the region's 5,000 miles of coast and coastal waterways, and close proximity to the Caribbean and Latin America, South Florida was a pot smuggler's paradise. In sharp contrast to the brazenly violent cocaine cowboys of the 1980s, Miami's marijuana smugglers were cooler, calmer, and typically nonviolent. Square Grouper paints a vivid portrait of Miami's pot smuggling culture in the '70s and '80s and its major players: the smuggling Black Tuna Gang, the pot dealing Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church and the tiny fishing village of Everglades City

Excellent Documentary on 3 Drug Smuggling Operations.
When I was Younger I was Offered to go to Florida & take the Drop's from the Airplane & pick it up from the Ocean with the Boat,
but I was to Intimidated by it.
The thought of getting Busted never appealed to Me.
So I turned down the offer & got out of the business all together. It was easy to work your way up the later back in those days.
Then I went on the straight & narrow. No regrets.
