Boston George Jung, Inspiration For The Movie 'Blow'

Tuesday, October 1st

Colombia had Pablo Escobar. America had George Jung.

Few American drug dealers have ever had the connections, charisma, and influence that George Jung had. Over the course of his life, Jung made a living by smuggling drugs into the United States in mass quantities. Eventually, he joined the Medellin cartel and with them became responsible for 85 percent of the cocaine smuggled into the United States during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
