Summary: In Cocaine Nation, Tom Feiling travels the trade routes from Colombia via Miami, Kingston and Tijuana to London and New York, meeting Medellin hitmen, U.S. kingpins, Brazilian traffickers, and talking to soldiers and narcotics officers who fight the gangs and cartels. He traces cocaine's progress from legal "pick-me-up" to luxury product to global commodity, looks at legalization programs in countries such as Switzerland, and shows how America's anti-drugs crusade is actually increasing demand.
