Maybe you guys can shed some light, WHEN exactly did Ndrangheta become dominant in the cocaine trade? It seems to have been a gradual thing... Any idea on what years this takeover became complete? I'm thinking between like 2000-2010? Somewhere in there?

Any thoughts?

I recall reading news back in 2005 or 2006 not only about the 'ndrangheta's dominance in the European cocaine market but also the 'ndrangheta's having eclipsed the Sicilian Costa Nostra as Italy's largest criminal group.
