I have no way of verifying this one way or another but I think it is something that will develop over time and is most certainly worth keeping an eye on. It almost seems as if it is a repeat of what the contras as well as the government of Nicaragua did in the 70s and 80s. Not to be forgotten was the link between Vietnam and the Golden Triangle with opium.
Where as this may appear to be limited to the national stage we can go not all that far back to when Miami was known as the Casa Blanca of the US. To get a sense of how bad it was as well as the corruption of the police see the documentary Cocaine Cowboys and Cocaine Cowboys 2
So, if this is going on in the national level, think of the stage and precedents that are being set at the state and local level.

The relationship between the global drug trade and the government of the United States of America is a long, complicated and irrefutable one. Some of the most infamous dealings that have come to light have involved the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and various drug trafficking rings throughout the world.
However, it now appears that the CIA involvement in drug trafficking is just one aspect of an incredibly close relationship between so-called authorities in America and the drug cartels they pretend to fight.
Two former law enforcement officials and confidential informants for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have now revealed that drug cartels have ties to elected officials, high-level police and even judges.
Even more disturbing, these men said that drugs are dropped by small planes on properties along the border between the United States and Mexico which are then escorted to their next stop by U.S law enforcement.
