TWCCL is a new weekly installment bringing you all the news you need on the three issues that matter most to Miamians.


  • Big bust of the week: $217 million in cocaine, seized at a shipping port in Kingston.
  • An eight-ball was found at the Kennedy Space Center. This is the second time in two years that cocaine has been discovered in a Nasa facility.
  • A South Carolina man put crack in his crack.
  • A Connecticut man was arrested after calling the police to complain that a dealer had given him subpar cocaine.
  • Mike Tyson: "I always thought if you did cocaine, you'd stay skinny. I didn't know you'd turn into a fat crackhead."

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
