Paraguay’s Weed Industry Caught Up in Police Corruption Scandal
For most Americans, or those who incredulously observe us from afar, the proliferation of secret tapes, corruption, bribery, extortion and threats of “you’re fired” have become an everyday occurrence.

Marijuana producers in the main weed-growing region, Alto Paraná, had the polite custom of giving large sums of money as “welcome gifts” to the newly-hired police and anti-narcotics authorities assigned to work in the area.
The housewarming gifts were a way of ensuring that the growers’ operations would continue undisturbed, according to Paraguayan newspaper, ABC Color.
