Swimming weed from Mexico to U.S. brought big money - and trouble - for California student athletes During the 1970s, a group of swimmers from Coronado High School in California ran a small weed smuggling operation that grew into a $100 million global enterprise. They swam 25-pound packages of marijuana from Mexico to the U.S. The story of the Coronado Company is told in the new book titled “Deep Water: From The Swim Team to Drug Smuggling.” Pictures below courtesy of Coronado High School yearbook.
