This 100-ft Long Sub Was Built To Carry 8 Tons of Colombian Cocaine

When you need to transport eight tons of cocaine across international waters, you can't exactly just pay an extra baggage fee. So Colombian drug lords did the sensible—and trendy—thing: they spent 4,000 million pesos (approx $2.2 million) to build their own drug-trafficktacular submersible.
