George Jung, cocaine smuggler, dead at 78

George Jung was a cocaine smuggler who, at the height of his criminal career in the 1970s and ’80s, made millions running drugs for the Medellín cartel. He was later played by Johnny Depp in the 2001 movie “Blow.” “I don’t call myself a gangster,” he said. “I’m an outlaw.”
