The world’s biggest cocaine factory in Colombia has become the first major producer to have been discovered in a bottle.
The discovery of a facility that produced 1.6 million kilos of cocaine and 500,000 kilos (1.6 billion pounds) of hashish, both the world records for both substances, is likely to be the first indication that Colombia is preparing to be a cocaine producer.
The news comes as President Juan Manuel Santos and Colombian lawmakers are planning to sign a law that would allow the production and distribution of cocaine, a substance with a market value of more than $4 trillion.
Santos’ administration said the new law will help stem the flow of drugs into the country.
Colombia is one of the worlds biggest cocaine producers.
In 2013, the government set a goal to reduce its cocaine consumption by half to a third by 2020, while also raising the minimum age of buyers to 21.
But it has failed to do either.
“The drug trade has gone underground, and that’s the problem,” said Eduardo Delgado, an expert on the drugs trade at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
“This is not just a new drug problem.
Colombia’s National Drug Council said it plans to take over control of the country’s drug market from the government. “
If we don’t do something, we will continue to be at the crossroads where the drug cartels are in the future,” he said.
Colombia’s National Drug Council said it plans to take over control of the country’s drug market from the government.
It has also ordered a crackdown on cartels in a bid to curb the flow.
Colombia has the world largest cocaine market.
In recent years, cocaine production in Colombia’s largest city, Bogota, has declined from nearly 400,000 tons in 2010 to roughly 200,000 in 2015, according to Colombia’s national drug agency.
The Colombian government is also seeking to shift more of its drug production to its northern provinces, which have a history of violence.
Drug production has been a problem in many countries with large drug production, including the United States, Brazil and Mexico.
