127 kg of cocaine seized from Spanish naval ship

MADRID (AP) - Spanish police say they have seized 127 kilograms of cocaine from Spanish navy training ship, which allegedly carried the drug from Colombia and dropped off some in New York.

A Civil Guard statement Wednesday said three sailors were arrested on July 12 when the ship returned to Spain, but the drug wasn't found until last Saturday, hidden in the ship's reserve sails.

Investigations began in May when U.S. authorities arrested two Colombians who allegedly picked up 20 kilograms of cocaine from sailors on the training ship, the Juan Sebastian de Elcano, during its stop in New York.

The Civil Guard said drug traffickers had contracted the sailors to transport the cocaine during a stop in the Colombian city of Cartegena de Indias.

Cocaine is hardly harmless. It's one of the most addictive substances on Earth. True, it does severely punish users, but the biggest harm comes from it's effects on others. Coke will turn an otherwise nice person into a lying, thieving monster. The cartels make a huge profit catering to those "punishment" people. When you run out of money many addicts resort to harmless little adventures called burglary, strong armed robbery, outright armed robbery and grand theft. Coke is far from harmless.

Cocaine is really harmless compared to the drugs like crack or heroin.
Cocaine is really self punishing to those that misuse it for recreation

Take 'em out to sea on the same boat. Tie concrete "boots" to them. Drop overboard. Case closed. Justice served.
