Cocaine

Almost all of the cocaine circulating in the United States was grown and produced abroad, most commonly Mexico, Colombia, and other South American countries.


If you are "close to the grower", there are minimal steps between the creation of the drug and it getting in your hands. This usually implies less of a chance that the product has been compromised or cut by middle-men.

For example, if you live in New York, and you buy cocaine from a dealer on the street, chances are you are NOT close to the grower. The cocaine probably came from Mexico or another Latin American country, and has been sold, cut, and then resold many times along the way before getting to you.

Now, if you are buddies with someone running a marijuana grow-op, you ARE close to the grower. You know where the weed has come from and where it has been, so you know what you are getting.
