Meanwhile, back at the ranch...the house was being ransacked, the cattle were being rustled, and Granma was being raped by the cowboys....

Law enforcement needs to re-direct its focus on 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 those 5 years 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 free.

Some of the 'beyond lunacy' that I truly love are the folks that claim marijuana leads to crimes against people and property...i.e.,'stealing to support the pot addiction.'

I was involved in the marijuana trade for 14 years. I never saw this. The people I dealt with were honest and straight forward. We all came up through 'the ranks' together...meaning, we climbed from ounces to multi-tons as a unit.

Integrity was the key criteria.
When dealing in multi-tons, huge amounts of cash were involved. No checks or credit cards were accepted.

The only way to attain that level of transactions was through honesty.
There was no other avenue.
