Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ciro Mancuso (born 1949) was a Nevada based drug dealer convicted of running a $140-million marijuana smuggling operation for more than a decade. In cooperation with a foreign exchange student from Thailand, Ciro Mancuso built one of the largest domestic drug cartels in U.S. History. The son of immigrants from Italy, Ciro was a real estate developer before venturing into the lucrative narcotics business. Ciro's smuggling operation began in the late 1960s, when he teamed up with a group of college friends from Tahoe Paradise College. At first, they only sold marijuana at their college, but soon the business grew. When authorities moved in on their growing operation at a small farm in Clay County, Kansas, they began importing marijuana from Mexico. Later Ciro teamed up with a Thai exchange student to import more potent marijuana into San Francisco. Ciro soon realized that there was more profit to be made selling cocaine and integrated it into his marijuana operation It took the government twelve years to build a case against Mancuso.show more
