Colombia could use drones to fight cocaine production

Colombia’s police could start using drones to tackle a five-year surge in cocaine production that has jeopardized relations with the United States.

State contracting documents show that anti-narcotics police in the South Americancountry have hired a local company to test drones for spraying herbicides on fields of coca, the base material for cocaine.

The remote-controlled devices will be expected to eradicate 8 hectares (20 acres) of coca per day, while carrying approximately 10 liters (2 gallons) of herbicide on every flight.
