I am trying to piece the full story of the Morphine Trafficking story in the Vice chapter. Here goes,
It started with Phelps' platoon returning through the SS Coolridge and decide pull a heist in order to sell the stolen goods, specifically the morphine to earn some money what they thought they deserve for the war.
Sheldon sells the drugs to Cohen or more specifically, Lenny to sell the drugs. However, Lenny is selling wholesale instead doling slowly which results many addicts death and police attention. Cohen wanted to buy the rest of the morphine to later put in a vat and water down to supposedly reduce the morphine concentration. Sheldon knowing it results more death, refuse Cohen's buyout and been targeted.
Sheldon met Kelso to solve the drug problems and decide to gather the rest of their old unit. They meet with Cohen and threaten to drop the drug demand. Despite the threat, Cohen is unfazed and decide to kill the whole unit involving the heist to threaten Sheldon to hang over the rest of the drugs.
Sheldon consults to his mentor, Fontaine and confess of his crimes. Fontaine offer Sheldon to hand over the drugs to him and he will sell the drugs legally and the money invest in the Suburban Redevelopment Fund. Unbeknownst to Sheldon, Fontaine is just a drug dealer who sell addicts through his clinics.
Phelps and his partner, Earle, exposed Lenny's operation and seized 1/3 of the morphine with the rest under Sheldon who dole it out slowly before giving to Fontaine. Despite Phelps closer to expose the drug operation, the corrupt LAPD uses Phelps affair with Elsa to distract the Allen scandal and demote him to Arson before his resignation.
Did I get the story right?
