Abstract

This article covers the cocaine and marihuana imports from Colombia to Miami during the 1970s. It describes the organized networks in charge of these illicit activities. It is pointed out that Colombians cooperated with traffickers belonging to other nationalities (mainly Cubans and Americans). Finally, it is shown that the violence unleashed by Colombian traffickers in Miami at the end of the 70s was fully oriented to rival Colombian bands.
