  1. I first tried marijuana when I was 21 years old. Now, 45 years later, I still smoke pot.

    I am 66 years old and have not taken a prescription medication in over 30 years. Has regular cannabis use enabled this? I have no idea.

    I am active…hiking, canoeing, camping, bicycling. My last hike was 11.5 miles…to the Confluence Overlook in Canyonlands Natl Park. Has cannabis enabled this? I don’t know.

    I do know that I am living proof that prohibitionist propaganda is a fallacy…a blatant lie.

    The worst experience I ever had with cannabis was spending 5 years in Federal Prison for a marijuana offense.

    I wrote about the escapades that led to my imprisonment. The book:

    ‘Shoulda Robbed a Bank’

  2. All card-carrying members of the DEA need to read: Shoulda Robbed a Bank
    Here is one of its reviews:

    5.0 out of 5 stars… If David Sedaris had written ‘Catcher in the Rye’..this would be it, June 30, 2012

    This review is from: Shoulda Robbed a Bank (Kindle Edition)

    I have never smoked pot in my life…nor do I ever care to. I read about this book in numerous Huffington Post comments. Thought I would read it because I know nothing about marijuana or the people involved with it. I am ecstatic that I did. Funny, Funny, Funny!!!
    The chapters are like short stories. Stories about unloading boats with helicopters, close encounters with law enforcement, traveling through the jungles of South America.
    The chapter about the author’s first time smoking marijuana made me feel like I was with him…coughing.
    All of the characters were just a group of loveable, nice guys and girls.
    Not what I had been raised to believe…hysterical maniacs high on pot bent on death and mayhem. They were nothing like that.
    If you have ever read any of David Sedaris’ books, and like them…you will love Shoulda Robbed a Bank.
    And the crazy things happening reminded me of Holden Caufield in ‘Catcher in the Rye’ and the way he staggered through life.
    The way the words are put together are like nothing I have ever heard. I am sure I will use many of the sayings found in this book just to dazzle my friends. A terrific read. I love this book.
