During the mid 90's HOWARD MARKS had forty three aliases, eighty nine phone lines and twenty five companies trading throughout the world. Bars, recording studios and offshore banks: all were money laundering vehicles serving the core of his activity which was DEALING DOPE!
Marks began to deal during a postgraduate philosophy course at Oxford and was soon moving large quantities of hashish into Europe and America in the equipment of touring rock bands. The academic life began to lose it's allure...
At the height of his career he was smuggling consignments of up to thirty tons from Pakistan and Thailand to America and Canada and had contact with organisations as diverse as the CIA, MI6, the IRA and the MAFIA.
After many years and a world-wide operation by the Drug Enforcement Agency, he was busted and sentanced to twenty five years in prison at the United States Fedaral Penitentiary, Terre Haute, Indiana, the site of America's only federal Death Row. He was released on parole in April 1995 after serving seven years of his sentence.
This great iconic character comes to tell us his funny anecdotes and stories of his trials and tribulations in life!
