Griselda Blanco Is Dead

New, 1 comment

Griselda Blanco, godmother of Miami's massive cocaine trade, was assassinated down in Medellin, Colombia, where she had been deported following decades in prison. With untaxable cocaine profits that had to be hidden somewhere, Blanco and others would fund a massive construction boom in Miami in the 80s and 90s, meaning your ugly, low-rise concrete apartment building was built with cocaine, thanks to this lady.
