George Jung was a major drug trafficker working for the Medellin Cartel during the 1970s and 1980s where Jung smuggled cocaine into the United States. The cartel was responsible for bringing in 90% of the cocaine smuggled into the United States. Jung specialized in smuggling cocaine from Colombia into the United States and was earning up to $5 million a day smuggling cocaine into the country through stolen planes. His wildlife as a smuggler for Pablo Escobar and the Medellin Cartel came crashing to an end when he was arrested in 1987. His fantastic story of drug smuggling and intrigue garnered the attention of Hollywood after the 1993 release of Bruce Porter’s book “Blow: How A Small Town Boy Made $100 Million with the Medellin Cartel and Lost It All” was released. The subsequent film, titled “Blow” after the slang term for cocaine, was written by David McKenna and Nick Cassavetes and directed by Ted Demme. The film, released in 2001 with Johnny Depp portraying Jung, grossed $83.3 million dollars at the box office.
