Amount of Drugs Moved Though Guatemala

Security officials estimate that between 275 to 385 tons of cocaine moves through Guatemala from South America on its way to North America each year.

The amount of cocaine that is transported through Guatemala is almost enough to satisfy the entire cocaine demand in the United States.
