Editor's Comment: In Panama, "the drugs go North and the money comes South." The drug traffickers have to get the product to market, and then once it's sold they have to get the cash back home, and then launder it into something that can be used. People tend to be more willing to take the risk of transporting large wads of cash on airplanes. A lot of them get caught in Panama. If you're going to fly into Panama with more than $10,000 dollars in cash, make sure you declare the money on the plane or else it might get taken away from you, and you might get to spend your time in Panama behind bars.
