In the 1980s, Everglades City, Florida, was raided three times by federal law enforcement. This small fishing town of about 500 people was hiding a complex, highly organized drug-smuggling network responsible for running millions of pounds of marijuana from Colombia to Miami. VICE met up with former pot hauler Tim McBride to travel the backwaters and learn more about how it all went down.
