Meanwhile, Baltimore continues to enjoy some of the purest heroin and cocaine available on the eastern seaboard, even as police and public officials (occasionally, when pressed) tell the fairy tale that local dealers import their stuff through New York middlemen and that Baltimore, now, historically, and forevermore, does not have any "organized crime." These days, Customs routinely busts people smuggling condoms full of heroin in their large intestines. The amounts are measured in grams. The major cases focus on people working 5- and 10-kilo packages. Meanwhile, tons of stuff is getting in somehow; it is all over the street. Just this week, the commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol told the Baltimore Business Journal that the port is not a significant transshipment point for heroin.
