According to this very thought-provoking infographic by Criminal Justice Degree, cocaine is smuggled to the United States via submarines, operated by 4 people: the engineer, the captain, the seaman, and the cartel agent. The submarines roughly cost $500,000 to build, but the profit off a single run is nearly double that.
