Griselda Blanco was a figure that everyone feared. She was a strong figure at the center of the Miami drug wars. The drug wars continued from the 1970’s till the 1980’s. The Magnolia Pictures released a documentary about these incidents called “Cocaine Cowboys”.

Griselda Blanco, was given the name of Cocaine Godmother and the Black Widow. This was because during her reign, she ordered hundreds of assassinations to keep all the money and power to herself. Her reign was the reign of terror since she was known to be vicious and violent.

She was a mother of four, and in 2004 was deported back to Columbia. While she was in Columbia she was assassinated in a motorcycle drive-by in 2012.
