Meanwhile, back at the ranch...the house was being ransacked, the cattle were being rustled, and Ellie May was being raped...but, by golly, we got them dadgum pot smokers. 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. At the time, I really had no idea what I had gotten myself into...mine was an offense involving pot...the thought never occurred to me that I may actually spend years in prison for that 'indiscretion.' As those 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 best...living free. Truly, it is time for this lunacy to end...it never should have begun. My book is: Shoulda Robbed a Bank I think you may enjoy it...it is about living FREE.

Don't do anything illegal then you don't have to worry about going to prison.

@Corri Erickson Yes, that is well said. The point I was trying to make is the disparity of sentences involving a marijuana offense opposed to armed bank robbery. Visualize a hippie offering to share a joint with you, if you were inclined...now, visualize a man with a gun in your face demanding your wallet...which would you deem the more 'offensive'?
