Vice - In Australia a gram of coke generally costs around $300 AU [$214 USD]. One of the reasons it's so expensive here is because Australia is an island a long way from anywhere. All contraband has to be flown or shipped in, generally from South America, which, again, isn't close. But any quick business analysis of the situation would suggest it doesn't have to be like this. Cocaine is sourced from the coca plant, so why don't traffickers just grow it here?
