10. George Jung: $10,000
Nobody was smuggling and selling drugs in the United States quite like George Jung. The 73-year-old, who was released from his hefty sentence just two years ago, was infamously known to have had one of the biggest influences on the cocaine trade during the late 1970s and early ‘80s. According to reports, George knew his way around the system, having smuggled endless amounts of cocaine from Colombia all the way back to the US, which evidently enough, saw his net worth rise to a whopping $100 million.
9. Rafael Caro Quintero: $650 million
Rafael Caro Quintero was said to have been one of the most dangerous criminals in the ‘70s, for he was considered everybody’s friend. If Rafael had problems with somebody he didn’t like, his drug-affiliated friends would “take care of it.” Quintero made an astonishing amount of money throughout his time as a drug dealer, grossing an incredible $650 million prior to being arrested for drug trafficking in the United States. He was released from prison in 2013.
