More than $4.7 billion in cocaine seized by USCG in 2007


I can see quite a few tears being shed in Hollywood and Las Vegas over that news! How will they ever be able to cope with the hardships of being famous now?:shake:
How do they actually know the value of the drugs? :confused:

Do they go around and take a poll of the drug dealers to find out what it's worth?
Undercover narcotics detectives probably know a thing or two about street value. :wink:
Which means they know just how much to inflate it to make it sound better. :wink:
Point well taken, though I believe that this calculation seems to be correct.

They're basing their estimations on street value of cocaine at about $30/gram. From what I've heard, that seems to be a reasonable estimation.
