WOW, never realized how much money was involved with it back then. Wish I made some easy money that way, but too scared of what can happen.

Very good flick ***** rating

dont know munday or robert but know falcon and magluta..my aunt not by blood but, the lady who married my uncle, is whilly's aunt. She sees whilly's mom (mirtha) everyday. she cleans her house and gets paid for it........ not to implicate anything at all but we were having a conversation the other day and she had just gotten paid for cleaning the house...when i looked at one of the 20 dollar bills the date was 1985 and it was as crisp as a new bill and smelled like talcum.....hmmmm. food for thought......

another side note... the doc cocaine cowboys was originally going to be about sal and whilly however at the time that they wanted to interview him and write the whole thing whilly was going through trial and told the gentleman hed better not mention his name in the film...

another guy by the name of albert san pedro was mentioned in this film..very very popular guy , who happened to live about 2 miles from my house in hialeah.. his house is still there..happens to be one of the largest in hialeah.. ;0)

I've seen some things about overall profit margins from start to finish on powder cocaine to be in the neighborhood of 17,000% (yes, that's seventeen thousand).

Hard to stop a machine that is making that kind of loot. Or, at least should I say one can understand why some of those guys took the risk(s) they did.

Yeah, it's on Showtime On Demand.

Certainly tosses a wet blanket on all the glam and romance of Miami Vice.

I caught it browsing through the channels last night and caught it in the middle and had to see when it repeated later in the night... Very interesting stuff and talk about cold blooded killers they would shoot you for no reason at all....you wouldn't want to be on their bad side...

I lived through that period down here in S. Fla. It was sick.

I can certainly believe that the average Fed Reserve bank had $5 billion in deposits a year while the Miami Fed was moving $600 billion.

I used to go to the Lauderdale Strip Clubs and the whole Valet area would be Benzs and Lambos.
