During the leadership of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, the Sinaloa cartel was a multi-billion dollar international drug trafficking empire, controlling at least 90% of the world's heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana trade, exporting multi-ton shipments of narcotics to the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia per day. He also had a vast supply of submarines, boats, ships, trains, helicopters, and cargo planes.
