Editor's Comment: 5.9 tons of drugs seized in just the first two months (59 days) of the year works out to 193 pounds of drugs seized, every day, on average. However, the DIJ director is playing the numbers game a little. If this 193 pounds per day pace is maintained throughout the entire year, then Panama will end up with 70,445 pounds or 35.2 tons of drug seizures. Last year Panama seized more than 50 tons, so maybe they seized more in January and February, this same numbers game won't hold up for other months in the year which saw large busts last year. Whatever. It's all just bean counting anyway. The story is this - Panama seizes a lot of drugs. Got it.
