This Man Supplied 90% Of North America's Marijuana In The 1980's

Billionaire mexican druglord Rafael Caro Quintero had the largest marijuana plantations in the world, one of them literally being visible from space, they were measured in square-miles not acres. One fateful day in 1985 the DEA allegedly cornered him in a regional airport where he was sorrounded by his armed henchmen. According to TIME & U.S. newspaper articles of the time, a mexican police commander simply let him fly away to freedom, but mexican media and government alleged that the DEA gave the order to let him go free because they were afraid he was going to tell the whole world how the DEA made deals with him, something Rafael Caro Quintero has always said. Rafa Caro Quintero was eventually imprisoned but mysteriously let go free, allegedly at the instance of the CIA and their masters. Nobody knows the truth. All that its known is that the whole thing was a joke.

Below is a re-creation of Rafael Caro Quintero cornering at the airport on that fateful day (the american version of events, told as witnessed by DEA members now retired).

LOL there are many people on the internet that think "Silicio Falcon", the gay cuban character in Narcos, is actually Tony Montana from Miami. All the characters in Narcos existed in real life, with the same name BTW, its a series that is not scripted, all the events happened in real life. What many people don't know is that Tony Montana also existed (not under that name). He was a cuban druglord in Miami in 1980 and the movie "Scarface" was an attempt to tell his story.

But Silicio Falcon and Tony Montana were not the same cubans in real life, even though both existed in the same time frame.
