What happend with Tuna???
If you looked around on this forum you would see this question has been answered before. Here is what I know of it.
Last I had heard was that Tuna (real name Waino Tuominen) lived in western Massachussetts, where he worked as a herdsman on a HUGE dairy farm and is an active member of the green party. I am not sure if he is still alive or not, but I know that he would sometimes talk about George and their life together with a fondness.
When he departed the group in real life it was not exactly how it happened in the movie. He was already gone when George met his pot hook up in Mexico. George last saw him walking down some train tracks on acid, and that was it. Fast forward a few years and he ran into Tuna again at their home town and Tuna acted like nothing happened and that he never lost touch.
Well I have never taken acid- FYI. As for the Tuna bit this is off the Tuna topic but about the movie Blow. My mother and I do not get along. If my mother had done to me as his mother did to him (called the police and had him arrested) there is no way she would have ever been welcome in my home again-- it would have been a Pablo type scene(when George arrives to meet Pablo Escobar)-- she would have gotten popped. How was he able to forgive her so easily? I say that in movie format as I would never 'pop' anyone but you get what I am saying.
We are about to embark upon a procedure the CIA was more than willing to use on me, I must say I find the reversal a tad ironic. Sark Alias

In real life it wasn't his mother who called the Feds, she called Georges uncle (whom George was named after) and he called the Feds. The reason she called "Uncle George" was because she didn't know what kind of trouble her or her husband could get in and Uncle George was in the military or something, so she figured he would know.
Psychologically, George's entire life was so dramatically shaped by his mother and father. George so desperately hated what his mother did to his father and conversely, hated that his father accepted that level of berated treatment.
