The patron saint of drug of drug dealers. Jesus Malverde was a Mexican Robin Hood who took from the rich and gave to the poor until he was killed by the police in 1909. Mexican drug traffickers constructed a shrine above his grave in Culiacan, where they worship frequently. It is conveniently located in one of the most frequent marijuana and opium trafficking centers in Mexico. Many drug dealers and distributors buy all sorts of Malverde memorabilia (shirts, statues, figurines) to protect themselves from the police. (seen in A Man Apart)
Yo ese, 5-0! Malverde, mi amigo, deshágase de la policía.
Translation: Yo homes, 5-0. Malverde, my friend, get rid of the cops.
