THUGGED OUT THURSDAYS!!! We all know the “Country Boy”, Frank Lucas. Frank made a name for himself in Harlem in the ’60s and established himself under the guidance of Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson…more or less. When Vietnam broke out, Frank wisely saw it as a great opportunity to cut out the Mafia as middle men in the dope game. Frank went directly to the source in Asia. Soon, Frank’s organization was smuggling heroin directly to the states from the “Golden Triangle” (nickname for an area in southeast Asia booming with opium). Frank’s organization consisted of his brothers and cousins…..and wife. Julianna Farrait-Rodriguez was an actual beauty queen from Puerto Rico. After meeting Frank in a nightclub, the two fell for one another, and quickly wed. Julianna was down with the life Frank chose, and had no qualms about how he kept her laced in the finest attire. She was so down, in fact, she became a contributing member to the organization. The two lavished the finest gifts on one another from jewelry, to furs, to luxury mobiles. Julianna was the one who gave Frank a beautiful, full, chinchilla coat. The gift was so ostentatious that it caught the attention of detectives at a prize fight one night. This led to an investigation being opened that would eventually bring down the whole organization. When the cops raided, Julianna tried to do her part by destroying evidence. She threw a suitcase packed with $585,000 out the window! Later, she plead guilty and was hit with 5 years for her role in the organization. Frank and Julianna separated but rekindled their relationship in the late 90’s, they didn’t live happily ever after though. Back in 2010, at 65, Julianna was knocked in a sting after she sold 2 kilos of raw to an undercover for $60,000. Julianna missed the life she said. While ashamed, she said, “Those who say that money is not important are lying. People say that money does not buy happiness. It doesn’t?” Mortified and remorseful, Julianna begged for mercy so she could watch over her ailing, ex-drug dealing, ex-convict husband. The judge said tough cookies and gave her 5 years. The love birds are still in love w each other, and, in love w them “birds”.
