A chapter in South Florida’s cocaine-dominated history that came to defined the 80’s as the “Cocaine Cowboy” days played out in court Thursday.
A Miami-Dade judge will issue a ruling in two weeks as to whether to hold a hearing for a former hitman for the so-called “Cocaine Cowboys” who has requested parole.
She was one of the most ruthless drug traffickers in South Florida history, killing anyone who got in her way. Over the past few months CBS4 has been tracking the life of Griselda Blanco, also known as the Godmother of Cocaine.
Griselda Blanco had quite a few nicknames: the godmother, the queen of cocaine, the black widow. Regardless of what she went by she left a lasting impression on South Florida’s history.
The woman known as “The Godmother of Cocaine” during Miami’s “cocaine cowboys” era of the 70s and 80s, has been murdered.
