Dwight Worker was thrown into a Mexican prison because of drugs. He got out, however, because of drag.
Worker, an American, was arrested in Mexico City in 1973 after attempting to smuggle cocaine back to the United States, and was sentenced to five years at Lecumberri Prison for drug possession. The facility, known infamously as "The Black Palace of Mexico," is so tough that the only known escapee was Pancho Villa.
