This chapter discusses the cooperative efforts undertaken by the United States and Cuba during the 1990s in addressing the dilemmas of drug trafficking. This chapter provides a brief overview of the role of drugs and their criminality in Cuba's prerevolution history. The chapter also discusses the Castro regime's drug policies from the early years of the revolution until the fall of the Soviet Union. Focus is centered on the 1990s, especially on the important cases of U.S.-Cuban drug interdiction, beginning with the 1996 joint seizure and search for the Limerick. The concluding discussion offers an analysis of U.S-Cuban cooperative efforts including the state of cooperation during the George W. Bush administration.
