TSGP Ep61 - Jason Smith | KINGPIN: OXYCONTIN, HEROIN, & THE SACKLER-SINALOA CONNECTION

Author Jason Smith returns to the show to discuss Sinaloa Cartel Kingpin  Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman, who made Forbes Magazines "Most Powerful People” list, and one of the world’s richest families, the Sacklers, who made Forbes Magazines  “Americas Richest Families” list. What do they both have in common? They are both in the drug trade. But one is vilified, and one is celebrated. One is legal, one is illegal. The Sacklers own the patent on the highly addictive drug OxyContin, and also own Purdue Pharma. Guzman is the head of the Sinaloa Cartel. His main product is Heroin. So how are these two organizations connected? Jason breaks it down in depth, and you won’t believe what he has to say. Also, Jason talks about the recent UNITE Rally he attended in DC, and the pros and cons of the event. Day 9 of the “14 Days to Building Self Esteem”.
