3. Griselda Blanco (The Black Widow)
Griselda is one of the few women to ever make it to the notorious top echelons of drug dealing society. Obviously, drug dealing seems to fall more in the menswear category, but this female Scarface didn’t mind taking the heat. Griselda Blanco is mostly famous for her part in the Miami drug wars during the late 70s and early 80s. Her propensity for violence, combined with a reputation in the cocaine trade that dwarfed the likes of Pablo Escobar, earns her a spot as one of the most mythologized drug lords in history. She’s one of the few American drug lords who prospered during the 80s amidst fierce competition when cocaine supplanted marijuana as the drug of choice. Her nickname "The Black Widow" was earned due to a habit of killing her husbands. The mystery of this remarkable woman persists; her location has been unknown since she was released from prison and deported back to Columbia in 2004. Her bloody rise to the summit of the drug game and her unique ability to evade pursuers is a story that's stranger than any fiction. It’s also full of sex, money, intrigue, and violence on a scale that defies belief. Who do you think could play her on the silver screen?
