Antipersonnel mines and gunfire make cocaine eradication in Colombia a task unlike any other. The air thickens with the scent of acetone when a lab is close, but most of the time they are occupied by humble families, who cultivated the coca crops because of desperation rather than malice. However, the job needs to be done, and the soldiers proceed to burn the lab to the ground. By the end of the day, the men of the Colombian Army's special anti-drug squad leave the burning lab and proceed to the next spot highlighted on a map showing. Small circles, in a vast sea of cocaine.
