Annotation: Right-wing criminals have long relied on bank robbery and financial scams to fund their subversive political activities, but some groups have now turned to drug smuggling as a source of income.
Abstract: Antigovernment and separatist groups are using drugs to buy weapons and finance other activities, and evidence to support this claim is growing. In Florida, law enforcement officials busted a $500,000-a-year marijuana operation that local, State, and Federal authorities believed was used to fund the right-wing underground. In Oregon, law enforcement officials determined three men convicted of operating a major methamphetamine laboratory invested heavily in the militia movement. The activities of specific individuals involved in using drugs to finance subversive political activities are detailed. 3 photographs
