Dred Scott Vanderpool grew up in a drug-infested community in Washington State, not far from the Canadian border. He started smoking hashish during his teen years and never stopped. Dred, who was also known by the nickname Chunky, graduated from college ahead of schedule and decided to pursue drug trafficking full time in lieu of a more traditional career path. Chunkys first order of business post-graduation was setting up a legal business entity that allowed him and his partner in crime since childhood, Tafari Winslow, to funnel illegal revenues into legitimate bank accounts. These two close friends and business associates worked hard to amass millions in cash, selling cocaine, hashish, and marijuana all over the West Coast. When they agreed it would be prudent to deposit dirty money into bank accounts they had opened in the Cayman Islands and Switzerland that was the beginning of the end.
