‘Bush, Reagan let drugs flow free to US from Nicaragua’ – ex-dealer

“Freeway” Ricky Ross, a former US street legend, who as a drug dealer was once responsible for flooding California’s streets with most of its hard drugs, spoke with RT about his activism against drugs. After making up to US$2 million a day and then spending 20 years in prison, Ross started from scratch and is now trying to make a difference by keeping kids from following into his footsteps.

It wasnt a race thing for them, they didnt care who died as long as the body count stayed at a certain level.

That’s what they don’t show in narcos and make a stigma that Latinos are the bad ones USA do a lot of mass control over TV

This news anchor is a prxck – "how is it possible to go thru school without learning to read?", shxt man you obviously have no clue about how bad schools in certain neighborhoods are. Dont show your bias in an interview or we wont ever take you serious. Its a good job Freeway is such a cool guy.The CIA and the Contra connection to the crack (sorry vlad – 'ready rock') epidemic is such a crazy story that when i first heard it i didnt believe it. I remember the CIA director at the time (John Deutch, unsure of spelling),… Read more »

Blacks are 3/5th of a human that's why we are the targets.


American hero.

U and all the other are working for the CIA

Why hasn't the CIA "disappeared" this guy yet? He know too much. He's "too" literate, if you know what I mean.

The CIA/ATF/DEA are still bringing drugs into the USA and allowing shipments of guns and ammo out of the USA. They allow Mexicans to import and sell drugs, the drug money is then used to buy guns, the guns are exported back to Mexico, and are used in the ongoing cartel war. The main hope of the US Government, is that the cartels will kill each other off, leaving only one cartel for the government to make a deal with.

OMG the guy doing this interview is painful to listen to. Terrible who hired this guy. Freeway sounds like he should have that job.


In what world, do american christians forgive Oliver North and think he and REagan were heros? I think this is when Christianity started dying in America. I think this is when God turned his back away from America. yeah, we had George Bush jr., later on and now Trump. But for the most part, we have had DEMOCRAT LIBERALS in charge of American politics for a very long time.


Neither the RETHUGLICANS or the DAMNOCRATS love us or represent us. WAKE UP AMERICA. Trump is not going to save you. Neither will Pelosi or Cortez or Biden. Neither will Gingrich and especially NOT Hannity the political hack pig.


And then came the SEX TRADE , SEX TRAFFICKING rise to power, the system, in the early Millennium. Pedophiles started coming into power in Hollywood and through the "Left" political machine through Clintons. and yes, they rose to power by the DRUG trade.

Truth Warrior

Very informative. Very cool.


you should fire this host he speaks like a robot. really blank its boring af just letting y'all know


thanks for telling the truth but i bet most u.s.a. citizens still not aware that their government no matter who the president always controlled most of the drug all over world.


They act like LA was an isolated situation. This was an operation that targeted every major city in the USA. Any place especially that had large demographics of black and Latino males. Control, exploit and destroy. That is the policy.

Mc ride get back to your music

Matt Ripper

The song he quotes is "The Messege" by Grandmaster flash and the furious 5, not "Rappers Delight".

Jose Mancia

100% true. The Reagan's administration was pure evil.

plejaren giants

Bullshit! This government doesn't give a damn about fighting commies. That just the cover story. The CIA creates wars just to procure their illegal narcotics industries around the world. Vietnam and the war in the Middle East aren't about freedom. These are staged confrontations that are really all about keeping the CIA's illegal narcotics trade industry operating. These treasonous endeavors produce fundings for black budget projects and covert black operations. And while at the same time the CIA is perpetuating the genocide propaganda campaign against minorities by bringing in illegal narcotics and firearms into the inner cities of America.

I was in FCI Phoenix with Freeway… A truly nice guy.

Bryan Lint

I saw on another video that Rap and other African-American music is dominated by white producers.
