Portrait of a dope-smuggling cowboy

Bill Conroy at Narco News reviews a new book "Contrabando" by Don Henry Ford Jr.

I received a total of fifteen years for my crimes. Under current law, it would have been much more, perhaps in the neighborhood of twenty years, and I would not be eligible for parole. My children grew up without a father and bear the scars even today.
I think it fair to say that none of us emerged from this business unscathed.
I think it is also fair to say that we all – the smugglers, the dealers and the whores – have been replaced, and that a similar or worse fate awaits the present day crowd involved in the business. And then they will be replaced.
