The 1970s was a decade of change. It was on the disco dance floors of Miami and Los Angeles to Rome and London that a new party drug emerged, beginning in jungles of South America, it was sweeping through the night clubs, Cocaine.
By the end of the decade, in broad daylight, a drug-related shooting at the Dadeland Mall in Kendall, Florida thrust in the era of the ‘Cocaine Cowboys’.
