Nicknamed Boston George and El Americano and best known as the character that was portrayed by Johnny Depp in the 2001 motion picture film BLOW, George Jacob Jung was an American drug trafficker and smuggler who was a major figure in the cocaine trade in the United States in the 1970s and early 1980s. Jung and his partner Carlos Lehder smuggled cocaine into the United States for the Colombian Medellín Cartel. Jung was sentenced to 70 years in prison in 1994 on conspiracy charges, but was released in 2014.
“If you snorted cocaine in the late 1970s or early ‘80s, there was an 85% chance it came from us.”
