Pablo Escobar is no doubt among the most infamous drug lords of all time. At the peak of his power, he terrorized numerous Colombian cities including Bogota, while at war with the government over its extradition policy. It allowed fearsome drug lords like him to be extradited to the United States. This was after they became too powerful for the government to handle. With a net worth that rose by a few billion dollars each year and an unrivalled control of the U.S. cocaine market, Pablo had more than enough resources to undermine the system through corruption. He also intimidated and assassinated those he couldn’t bribe.
