United States Department of Justice June 8, 1977 Organized Crime Involvement in Pornography

Most of the production and distribution of pornographic material seems to take. place on the east and west coasts with the west being dominant. It is thought that as far as films are concerned, about 60% of the production takes place in and around Los Angeles with New York taking second place. Members of La Cosa Nostra (LCN) moved into this lucrative field within the last ten years and their involvement apparently is on the increase.

This report, prepared by Intelligence Analyst will discuss LCN involvement in pornography by state. Those states with direct LCN involvement will be mentioned first followed by those with indirect ties to the LCN.
