This list of real drug lords that have been killed, arrested, or are still at large today. It is based on the influence they had during that time, wealth, how dangerous they were, and who was the most badass.
Standing in at 5 foot 6 inches is Joaquin Guzman nicknamed “El Chapo” (Shorty). This man runs the Sinaloa Cartel which is one of the huge contributors to the problem in Mexico. The only druglord on the Forbes list is estimated at a value of over a billion dollars, and has yet to be caught. There’s a 5 million dollar reward for him so keep an eye out.
