To be expected in what is a banana republic with countless self serving politicos and city officials who can be bought and sold like mobsters.
They simply look the other way.

There is more than just Counterfeit Cigarettes sold here.
Counterfeit cosmetics,clothing,shampoo, tooth paste ,bread brands etc,etc .
Counterfeit DVD and CD are wall to wall.

I have seen them and almost bought them at gas station/convenience stores and small mom/pop pharamcies because they do look legit untill you look at them closely and ask the store owner who gets ticked and ask you to leave lol.

NEVER saw any counterfeit at supermarkets or chain type pharmacies,stores only small places.

It is NOT only Hispanics who engage in this.

"Philip Morris says Miami is one of the top three areas in the country for counterfeit cigarettes. The problems spans from Little Havana to Hialeah to Miami Beach."

I think Hialeah could easily be the single most corrupt piece of land in USA.

Sad that people are voting for Hialeah mayor Robaina to replace Alvarez.
We would have been much better off staying with Alvarez

The only thing that I can think of which makes sense . Is that the greater political ,city official power we Cubans have had .The worse things have gotten in Miami-dade as far as corruption,fraud,etc.

"Miami-Dade has been a hotspot of mortgage fraud, Medicare fraud, money-laundering, and Ponzi schemes" -

It's not just cigarettes. Counterfeit prescription drugs are being smuggled in too in containers that are almost impossible to tell from the real thing. Remember that when you're saving those pennies in those independent drug stores. It's hard to go after the smugglers when you are dead from not taking the real medicine.
