Caribbean Border Initiative urges the federal government to assign more resources to combat drug-related violence in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

“We write to express our deep concern about increased drug trafficking through
Puerto Ricothe U.S. Virgin Islands, the high level of violence that these two American jurisdictions have been experiencing as a direct result of this trafficking, and what we believe to be an insufficient response by the federal government to these problems,” reads the letter.

Just legalize marijuana and there wont be a problem. Imagine how prosperous St. Croix would be if we had a marijuana growing and processing industry here. Legalization will come...its just a matter of time.

Marijuana isn't the problem. I couldn't agree more with the letter's intent. As much as drug smugglers who transport cocaine and heroin through international waters and are intercepted by both US and international forces, our open shorelines (particularly on the North side of STT) remain a haven for transshipment to the mainland both via sea and air.

The feds won't send ATF back into the islands because of the prosecution of the ATF agent on STT. Drug smugglers know this, so they have open season much of the time.
