The U.S.A. is the WORLD's largest consumer of cocaine.

world's largest consumer of cocaine (shipped from Colombia through Mexico and the Caribbean), Colombian heroin, and Mexican heroin and marijuana; major consumer of ecstasy and Mexican methamphetamine; minor consumer of high-quality Southeast Asian heroin; illicit producer of cannabis, marijuana, depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, and methamphetamine; money-laundering center

The United States has, according to all credible estimates, become the largest repository of ill-gotten gains in the world. U.S. private bankers honed their products and services in the 1970s and '80s, targeting particularly Latin American, African and Asian capital that was gushing into Europe. What had earlier been a somewhat passive function has now become an active pursuit, with expanding private banking departments taking advantage of porosities in the regulations of this and other nations, frequently operating at the outer edges of legal and policy constraints. In these efforts, more secrecy is often accorded to corrupt foreign interests than is available to U.S. citizens. Long before the expression "don't ask; don't tell" entered into the American lexicon, it had become established procedure in U.S. financial institutions.

500Gs would be $50,000. $500k is what you meant.
