How pathetic. Another victim of the 'war on drugs.' Another disenfranchised American. 'Our' government is quickly depleting our supply of voters. And for what????? The concept most overlooked in 'the war on drugs.'...freedom of the individual. We are Americans..we live in a free country...this is what we have been told since birth. The prohibition of marijuana is a farce. We are a free people. It is time to start living the way our forefathers intended. Law enforcement needs to re-direct its focus on crime...to those that are REAL crimes. I was in Federal Prison for 5 years for a marijuana offense. No, it was not for simple possession. I was arrested aboard a Lockheed PV2 in Marianna, Florida...charged and convicted for conspiracy to import and distribute 12,000 pounds of marijuana. As my years in prison rolled by, what I did see were armed bank robbers, coming and going...while I still sat there for marijuana. Most of the bank robbers only spent 17 to 24 months. But, I and my fellow 'drug offenders,'...we stayed for YEARS. I wrote about the escapades that led to my incarceration. I admit, I had a great time. No one was injured, no one was killed, firearms were not involved...there were no victims. We were Americans...doing what Americans do best...living free. My book: Shoulda Robbed a Bank Tales of adventure in the marijuana trade... I would be honored by your review.
