George Jung net worth: George Jung is an American drug dealer who has net worth of $10 thousand dollars. George Jung was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts on August 6, 1942. George Jung was a student at the University of Southern Mississippi when he first began using marijuana. In order to pay for the marijuana, he would often sell a portion of whatever he bought to friends and classmates. This initial business endeavor planted the seeds of an idea for smuggling larger quantities of marijuana from California to New England where he knew there was a high demand. He was quite successful, and over the course of the next seven years, George built a large smuggling empire. At his peak, he was making as much as $250,000 per month. In 1974, he was arrested with 660 pounds of marijuana and sent to jail. While in jail, he hooked up with the Medellin Cartel, and after his release, he began to smuggle cocaine from Colombia. His cocaine smuggling operations made him a multi-millionaire practically overnight. Over time, George became the largest smuggler of cocaine in the United States. He is reportedly responsible for smuggling 80-90% of the cocaine found in America during the 1970s and 80s. George was arrested in 1987. In 1994, he began smuggling marijuana again, but was subsequently caught. George Jung is now serving a 15-year sentence in a prison in Texas. George Jung was made famous when Johnny Depp played him in the movie Blow.
