El Universal, Posted: Jul 17, 2008

MEXICO CITY Drug cartels are increasingly transporting cocaine in liquid form, reports The Mexico City newspaper El Universal. Hernan Bernal, of Colombias National Narcotics Directorate, explained that the way drugs are packaged during transportation changes constantly. Cocaine has been exported in pill form, powder form and now in liquid form, in fruit juice, wine, rum or other liquids. The Gulf Cartel was the first to convert the powder into a liquid substance. The United States Coast Guard reports that from April to December 2007, it seized 7,000 gallons of liquid cocaine from ships with Venezuelan, Ecuadorian and Colombian flags, and officials in Panama 30 gallons of the liquid in their international airport.
