I have just gotten out of prison after 4 years for MDMA and hemp. I have been active in legalization for almost 40 years and was a founder of the libertarian movement. I want to get in touch with old friends like Jack Herer and Ben Mazel so if you know them tell them to contact me at [email protected] I have plenty of ideas and energy to make the final push for legalization. Anyone from Kentucky around?

"Iran tops world drug addiction rate"
The mullahs' execution of drug-takers makes America look mild.
The head of the UN's INCB is an Irani.
Go figure.
