A video segment from the interview, which you can see on Rolling Stone, sees El Chapo lift the lid on how he got involved in the drug business.

He also suggests he is not responsible for the extent of drug addiction in the world, saying "The day I don't exist, [drug trafficking is] not going to decrease in any way at all."
