Pablo Escobar-inspired Trips Are Trending, But Are They Ethical?

Pablo Escobar is the drug lord who lives on well beyond his death in 1993. Colombians remember 1975 to 1993, when Don Pablo (also known as the King of Cocaine or El Patron) exerted control at every level of power in Colombia. Aside from running the drug trade, he was known for paying off the highest ranking government officials, resulting in the bloodiest time in the country’s history. Residents have a hard time forgetting that the country averaged six murders a day before Escobar was killed by a cooperative DEA and local police effort on a rooftop in Medellin, Colombia.
