Drug smuggling by Rainbow Family members at 2014 gathering leads to investigation.
At the Rainbow Family Gathering in Heber City, Utah in July 2014, undercover federal agents were observed dressed as Rainbow Family members. They were quietly taking photos of many of the thousands of people in attendance. The revelation comes as several drug smuggling routes used by Rainbow Family members to distribute felony-grade drugs nationwide have been uncovered by federal investigators.

According to sources, Rainbow Family members have been acting as “drug mules” for larger drug smuggling operations based in Central and South America. The Rainbow Family members transport drugs across the Texas border and distribute the drugs to around 75 drug dealers who use the annual Rainbow Family Gathering to meet and plan drug selling and transportation for the following year.

Regional Rainbow Family Gatherings held during the year in the United States are meeting points for drug purchasers to pick up illegal drugs which are then used and distributed into smaller communities.

While law enforcement officials at the 2014 Rainbow Family Gathering were enforcing the law at the campsite, several Rainbow Family members were observed via satellite and GPS tracking making several stops to storage units in the Salt Lake City area before attending the gathering.

Many Rainbow Family Members have commented in recent years that the annual gathering is more focused on hard drug usage than on creating peace and healing the Earth. Many Rainbow Family members have stayed home this year and not attended the gathering in Utah, because the gathering no longer lives up to the Rainbow Family’s original ideals.

A federal database of Rainbow Family members is being compiled right now. Every time a Rainbow Family member is arrested at a gathering (local or national), their biometrics data (facial recognition and fingerprints) are entered into a sub-database at the FBI to track Rainbow Family members who are likely selling and transporting drugs for Central and South American drug cartels. Utah is already contemplating filing drug smuggling charges against 52 attendees of this year’s gathering. But it is more likely that federal charges will be filed against several hundred Rainbow Family members later this year for felony possession and smuggling of drugs. If a coordinated effort to smuggle drugs into the country is uncovered, the government could have the legal standing to ban further Rainbow Family Gatherings from occurring in the national forests.
