Jung was a part of the Medellín Cartel, which was responsible for up to 85% of the cocaine smuggled into the United States. He specialized in the smuggling of cocaine from Colombia on a large scale. His life story was portrayed in the biopic Blow (2001), starring Johnny Depp. Jung was released from prison on June 2, 2014, after serving nearly 20 years for drug-smuggling. On December 6, 2016 Jung was arrested and booked in Sacramento County jail for around a month, for violating his parole. He was arrested while giving a speech in San Diego. Since his release George has started a new business. That of  entering back into the space where it all began. Cannabis. This time around with the growing population of states that have and are continuing to legalize cannabis, George is working on creating his own line of products for everyone to enjoy. George is an advocate for opiod addiction and is in the process of forming a non for profit organization to do whatever he can to help stop the abuse.
