Like many millennials across the country, Luke graduated college owing thousands of dollars in student loan debt – $130,000, to be exact.

With no job and no money in the bank, Luke devised a desperate plan: he would smuggle cocaine from Panama to the United States to pay off his student loans.

    "Didn't want to be street level, 'cause they don't make that much $." Maybe, if you're trying to pay off that debt in a few months. 5yrs at street level, in a major US City, he would've had his 130k paid off

    this is a guy who got too freaked out over the power the US GOVT act like they have over you. student loans are generally lax as long as you are paying something. im 100k in debt from school. i pay below the minimum and they always tell me i owe this or that, but at the end of the day they CANNOT dictate how your life goes therefore they cannot demand anything. and federal income tax is a scam, we pay our state tax so our state can say okay our citizens made this much and we pay the govt this much. instead the govt tries to pretend like we all owe them money and our state money. hell no. theres a loophole they are using that a lot of americans are not recognizing

    If your college degree can't earn enough to pay for itself, perhaps you wasted your time?

    This guy didn't "have to" smuggle drugs. He chose to rather than working hard and living simply to pay off his debts, which is what everyone else does.
