Turkish farmers were licensed to grow opium poppies for sale to legal drug companies, but many sold their excess to the underworld market, where it was manufactured into heroin and transported to the United States.
The morphine paste was refined in Corsican laboratories in Marseille, one of the busiest ports in the western Mediterranean Sea. The Marseille heroin was reputed for its quality. Marseille served as a perfect shipping point for all types of illegal goods, including the excess opium that Turkish farmers cultivated for profit. The convenience of the port at Marseille and the frequent arrival of ships from opium-producing countries made it easy to smuggle the morphine base to Marseille from the Far East or the Near East.
It soon became clear that the French underground was increasing not only its participation in the illegal trade of opium, but also its expertise and efficiency in heroin trafficking.

The first major French Connection case occurred in The French traffickers continued to exploit the demand for their illegal product, and by , they were supplying the United States with 80 percent of its heroin. Because of this increasing volume, heroin became readily available throughout the United States. In an effort to limit the source, US officials went to Turkey to negotiate the phasing out of opium production.
Initially, the Turkish government agreed to limit their opium production starting with the crop. At the end of the s, after Robert Blemant's assassination by Antoine Guerini, a gang war sparked in Marseille, caused by competition over casino revenues.

For years thereafter, Jehan was reported to be seen arranging and operating drug activities at will throughout Europe. Friedkin was told that Jehan died peacefully of old age at his home in Corsica.
Following five subsequent years of concessions, combined with international cooperation, the Turkish government finally agreed in to a complete ban on the growing of Turkish opium , effective June 29, During these protracted negotiations, law enforcement personnel went into action. One of the major roundups began on January 4, , when agents from the U.
He informed his superior who in turn notified the BNDD. In a month period, starting in February , six major illicit heroin laboratories were seized and dismantled in the suburbs of Marseille by French national narcotics police in collaboration with U.

Drug arrests in France skyrocketed from 57 in to 3, in Also broken up as part of this investigation was the crew of Vincent Papa , whose members included Anthony Loria Sr.
The well-organized gang was responsible for distributing close to a million dollars worth of heroin up and down the East Coast of the United States during the early s, which in turn led to a major New York Police Department NYPD corruption scheme. The substitution was discovered only when officers noticed insects eating all the bags of "heroin". The racket was brought to light and arrests were made. Certain plotters received jail sentences, including Papa, who was later murdered in federal prison in Atlanta, Georgia.
