Police takes a lot of drugs - level 2

During 30 different drug finds, the American Coast Guard seized one billion dollars’ worth of cocaine and heroin from narcotics smugglers at sea. The Coast Guard loaded the narcotics at the US naval base at San Diego. The 32 tons of 100% pure cocaine could produce around 33 million lines of the drug.

During the past year, the Coast Guard has netted 59 tons of drugs off the shores of Mexico and Central America. That is more than it seized during the three previous years.

People will move the drugs to a secret location and destroy them.

Difficult words: seize (to take something officially), smuggler (a person who smuggles something – moves something abroad illegally), net (to make money in total).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about all of these drug problems?
