‘That’s All Folks’ – DEA Busts ‘Cartoon Network’

The customer base was huge. And it apparently extended to the kinds of names that make the front page. Wiretap conversations reveal Network managers talking about marijuana deliveries to Viacom companies like MTV and Comedy Central. Raids to the first house that turned up information turned up pages with customer’s names. One of those names was someone so afraid of being found out, the person quickly cooperated — and let agents monitor calls to the “Network’s” central base for marijuana orders for nearly a year. Allowing the DEA’s Joint Narcotics Task Force the rare opportunity of developing an inside look on how such an organization is set up. And how big it can be. From something so simple as door-to-door service.
