BOGOTA, COLOMBIA –  Charlie Sheen has been in Colombia for the last week,  trying to start his own drug cartel.

Controversial actor Charlie Sheen was reportedly is in Colombia to scout locations for a movie he is developing about cocaine traffickers, but WWN has learned that Sheen is actually trying to form his own drug cartel.   “Now that he is no longer acting, he wants to ‘win’ at another profession that is close to his heart,” said Julio Sejo of Bogota.  “He think he can make some friends here and start a drug cartel and make the big money.  It will be tough for him.”

Sheen asked financially troubled actor, Nicolas Cage, to go in on the new venture with him.  Sources say that Cage is considering it, but Randy Quaid has already said he wants “in.”

Sheen got off to a bad start, though, when he went to the coastal city of Cartagena and was caught smoking inside a non-smoking establishment.  The owners of the bar told Sheen to put out his cigarette, but Sheen refused and then got into a brawl with several of the locals.

After being fired from sitcom Two and a Half Men earlier this year, Sheen has been busy getting back to work, recently filming movie A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III in Los Angeles.

He will also star in a new sitcom Anger Management on U.S. network FX.

The star has been through three stints in rehab and was forthcoming about his use of drugs in an interview with ABC News back in February.

There, he opened up about his past drug use, telling them the last time he used drugs he ‘probably took more than anybody could survive [on].’

‘I was banging seven-gram rocks and finishing them, because that’s how I roll,’ he said. ‘I have one speed. I have one gear. Go.’

Here’s the latest place that he turns on the “go” – Cartagena:

The star told WWN that he is now ‘absolutely’ sober, but he still believes there is a strong demand for cocaine around the world and “other actors set up vineyards, I don’t see what’s wrong with forming a cocaine cartel.”
