Maybe a hoax? Why would someone owning a pot smuggling business with 100+ Mio$ revenues look for an employment? Sound like leaving fastlane (illegal but still fast) for a J.O.B.

It's not a hoax, it's a true story, pretty famous up here in Canada. It is probably 10 years old now, but he got caught after he had gone clean and turned his life around...turned in by a disgruntled employee.

Captured, after he left the business
But, one former disgruntled employee turned informer. It took the Drug Enforcement Agency six years to put together a case against O'Dea and his associates. By this time, O'Dea had changed his life after a near-death cocaine overdose and he was now counselling for drug addiction. O'Dea remembers that day in 1990 when the DEA came knocking on his door. "I was working as a counsellor in an alcohol drug and rehab center. So far away from that business. I was lying in bed there was a knock on my door. I said this is the wreckage of my past knocking on this door. There were some guys with some badges and they said ‘Are you Brian O'Dea?' and I said ‘I wish I wasn't, but I am.'"
He ended up landing a job as a television producer and has since written a book about his life:

The book is called: "High: Confessions of a Pot Smuggler"

Reminds me of the movie "American Gangster" I watched a few nights ago. Instead of pot, he was smuggling Heroine, but when the feds finally busted his operation, they confiscated $250 million from him.

The guy I really identified with though was Johnny Depp's character from the movie "Blow"... Talk about a business minded guy... He would have been a millionaire in just about anything he put his mind to -- it was unfortunate he chose the Cocaine business, and kept having such bad luck with who he trusted!

Cheers,
