Editor's Comment: Hey, a ton here, a ton there - after awhile it adds up. In 2009 and 2010 Panama seized about 50 tons of cocaine per year. That dropped off a little in 2011, and I don't know what the totals are so far for 2012. I do know the government of Panama has seized the third most drugs - behind the United States and Colombia - and I also know the traffickers are having a harder time getting their goods to market. The drug war has always been the "war of last resort" at least since the 80's.
