NPR''s Phillip Davis reports on drug wars in Jamaica. Traffickers are transporting drugs from Latin America to the U.S. by way of the Caribbean, and some of those drugs are finding a market on the islands. Jamaican officials are trying to curb the use of cocaine in the country but are finding it difficult because of a general tolerance toward marijuana.
