PHILADELPHIA - Federal authorities intercepted a record 16.5 tons of cocaine onboard a ship at the port of Philadelphia Tuesday afternoon, officials said.
The drugs have a street value of $1 billion, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
It's a record seizure for the Eastern District — one of the nation's largest districts, encompassing 4,700 square miles within nine counties.
Members of the ship's crew have been arrested and federally charged as the investigation continues, authorities said. The vessel they were on was described as a "large ship" at the Packer Marine Terminal in South Philadelphia.
The seizure dwarfs a March 19 bust of nearly 1,000 pounds of cocaine that had been a record for the city of Philadelphia. The drugs removed from a container ship on its way from Colombia to Europe had a value of around $15 million, authorities said.

Yikes, glad this isn't my drug of choice or I'd be pissed. Thankfully I can just grow my stuff for cheap.

Philadelphia government is already trying to figure out how they can tax it.

The harsher they are on <<natural>> drugs , the faster they push the evolution of synth drugs ...with craziest effects ever known to Man ....are we collectively gaining in this whole game of Bad versus Good ?
