A woman is in Colombia. She is 22 years old. She wants to fly to Spain. She is at an airport. The police stop her.

The police find 1.5 kilograms of cocaine. The cocaine is in the woman’s body. It is in her breast implants.

The woman goes to hospital. Doctors remove the implants. The woman must stay in the hospital for some time. She also is in trouble. She may go to prison for 6 years.

People produce drugs in Colombia. They produce around 300 tons of cocaine a year there.

Difficult words: breasts (two parts of a woman’s body on the front of the woman), implant (a thing which is put in the body to change it), produce (to make).
