Destroying Smugglers’ Airstrips: The New King of Coke (Excerpt)

Watch “The New King of Coke (Full Length)” – The United Nations announced in 2013 that Peru has overtaken Colombia as the world’s top producer of coca, the raw plant material used to manufacture cocaine. For the past two decades, Colombia has been virtually synonymous with cocaine. Now that Peru has become the global epicenter of cocaine production, the Andean nation runs the risk of becoming the world’s next great narco state. The Peruvian government is trying to crack down on the problem by ramping up eradication of coca plants, and devoting military and police resources to interdiction efforts. Despite the response — and a hefty amount of foreign aid devoted to combatting cocaine production — Peruvian coke is being consumed in the nightclubs of Lima and in cities around the world like never before. VICE News traveled to Peru to learn more about the government’s battle plan against cocaine, and to see how nearly every aspect of Peruvian society is caught up in the fight. We witnessed how the fine, white powder has forced an entire nation to the brink in the global war on drugs. In this excerpt, VICE News correspondent Kaj Larsen heads to the VRAE — a fertile region in the center of Peru — with Peruvian special forces, as they set out to destroy clandestine airstrips used by smugglers.
