Jump To Griselda Blanco's Stats
Suffice it to say that you would not want to get on the bad side of Griselda Blanco.If they were still alive, you could have asked her three former husbands. She took care of that. When Al Pacino studied up for his iconic role in the movie Scarface, he studied Blanco to get down the necessary violent edge to make the movie a classic. Blanco was not only the first female drug trafficer in history, but she stressed compliance by the exertion of violence. Her methodology earned upwards of $8 million dollars a month in profit during her reign before that empire collapsed. She now has a net worth of $595,625,000.
The Columbian native now resides by deportation in Columbia. During the heyday of cocaine sales, Blanco established the Medillin connection between New York, Miami and Columbia. She headed an organization that supplied cocaine nationally in the U.S. and did it with an iron fist.
Blanco was bi-sexual who only used female mules. They often wore lingerie Blanco had designed herself and which were sold in her Medellin Boutique. You would think that a more camouflaged name could have worked out better. According to the eventual investigation, her lingerie designs contained special pockets capable of concealing two kilograms of cocaine.
Blanco was reportedly grossing $8 million dollars a month in drug profits at the height of her distribution network. She traveled frequently between New York and Miami. She moved to Florida in 1978 where she assembled a group of young assassins called The Pisteleros. To become a member, one needed to kill someone and cut off a body part as proof of the deed.
Her downfall came much like portrayed in the Scarface movie. She started using the product she sold. As she became more sloppy, the police began to catch up with her moves. While she was rolling in the dough, she bought Eva Peron's diamonds and a tea set from the Queen of England. And then she got wild. She killed strippers for fun. She forced some of the men working for her to have sex with her at gun point. Blanco was reported to love to attend lesbian and bi-sexual orgies. Ultimately, she took her eye off the bottom line and started to look at lines and bottoms more.
