Even though the United States Drug Enforcement Administration says that transporting drugs via drone is a rare occurrence, it would seem some entrepreneuring drug dealers are still giving it a go.

A 2015 case involving a drone dropping 28 pounds of heroin in California and a drop of some 30 pounds of marijuana in Arizona are just two of the most prominent examples of drug traffickers getting creative in how they ship their product.

The biggest advantage to drug smugglers using drone technology is the distance aspect. As drone technology improves it is believed the problem will only get worse, not better, as drones become capable of increasingly heavy loads and employ more sophisticated methods of self flight.
