George Jung net worth: George Jung is an American drug dealer with an estimated net worth of $10 thousand dollars. Born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, George Jung was attending the University of Southern Mississippi, when he began using marijuana. In order to pay for the marijuana, he would often sell a portion of whatever he bought. This planted the seeds of an idea for smuggling marijuana from California to New England. He was quite successful, and over the course of the next seven years, he built a large smuggling empire, and 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. His cocaine smuggling operations made him a millionaire. He was arrested again in 1987. In 1994, he began smuggling marijuana again, but was subsequently caught. He 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.
George Jacob Jung (born August 6, 1942), nicknamed "Boston George", was a major player in the cocaine trade in the United States in the 1970s and early 1980s. Jung was a part of the Medell?-n Cartel which was responsible for up to 89 percent of the cocaine smuggled into the United States.[citation needed] He specialized in the smuggling of cocaine from Colombia on a large scale.

Though Jung did not excel academically, he was a star football player and was described by his classmates as "a natural leader." After graduating in 1961 from Weymouth High School, Jung went to the University of Southern Mississippi. He studied for a degree in advertising. He never completed his studies. Jung began recreationally using marijuana, selling a portion of everything he bought to break even.
In 1967, after meeting with a childhood friend, Phillip Eugene Sadler, Jung realized the enormous potential for profits by smuggling the cannabis he bought in California back to New England. Jung's initial smuggling operation had the drugs being transported via his stewardess girlfriend, who would carry them in her suitcases on flights. In search of even greater profits, Jung expanded his operation to flying the drugs in from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, using airplanes stolen from private airports on Cape Cod and professional pilots. At the height of this enterprise, Jung and his associates were reportedly making $250,000 a month (equivalent to over $1.6 million today). This ended in 1974 when Jung was arrested in Chicago for smuggling 660 pounds (300 kg) of marijuana.
