The Drug Enforcement Administration Wednesday announced the results of a major drug operation aimed at a Colombian heroin ring that used artwork, furniture, and clothing to smuggle drugs into the United States.

The year-long effort was called Operation High Step because some drugs were found in dancing shoes.

According to the DEA more than 50 people have been arrested in the United States and in Colombia and more than 75 kilos of heroin have been seized.

Bravo to the DEA for going after the real problem in the world today - heroin. I could go on and on about it, but instead I will link to previous threads.

I forgot to link to this recent story in my original post. This story symbolizes the entire problem for me. This kid might as well have had a WMD in his pocket. Imo, heroin is the mother of all WMDs.
