The art of drug smuggling

Inside Mexico’s Criminal Insurgency says this of the cerebro class: “In the corporate world they would be like the masterminds who sit around drinking lattes and think up a genius way to package toothpaste or a catchy slogan for the Big Mac.” Back in the narco world, these brainstorming sessions are more likely to go down in meetings at a dirty mechanic shop, clandestine lab, or warehouse, figuring out how to make Britney Spears statues that can dissolve into top-end cocaine, surgically implant drugs on animals, or better disguise compartments in cars or trucks.

Religious idols, paintings, entire suitcases, shoes, torpedoes, submarines, tunnels - the list goes on. A whole lot of thought being put into the logistics of a massive and lucrative business.
