Peru Cocaine Backpackers

Peru Cocaine Backpackers

In this March 13, 2015 photo, Yohan, 4, from left, Cristian, 7, and Angelo, 6, playfully toss coca leaves into the air, singing: "I have a lot of money, look at all the money I have," in La Mar, province of Ayacucho, Peru. Hauling cocaine out of the remote valley is about the only way to earn decent cash in this region where a farmhand earns less than $10 a day. Beyond extinguishing young lives, the practice has packed Peru’s highland prisons with cocaine backpackers while their bosses evade incarceration. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
