These are tales of high adventure in the marijuana trade.
From the first a dealer of ounces...and on to multi-ton transactions.

Over a 14 year period.
(And, fictitious, of course???)

As the sales volume increased, we all went up the ladder together.  We formed a bond of trust.

When you deal in big weight, you deal in big cash.  You had better know who you are dealing with.  Guys who rob banks with guns would love to run up on this kind of haul.

Pot was brought from the Bahama Islands, Mexico, and Colombia, South America.
We brought it by cars, trucks, boats, airplanes, helicopters, motorcycles...even burros.

(Gimme a hug, Mr/Ms Burro)

Not all missions were successful.  Some included lost aircraft, lost pot, sunken boats, and stupid people.  But, the attitudes always remained POSITIVE.  "We didn't want any negative vibes, Man."

A great time was had by all...from the boys and girls bringing in the those who smoked up the delivered product.

All was fun and games...until the dreaded, "They got us!"
That was not much fun.

No one was injured, no one was killed, private property was untouched.

There were NO victims.

So why are people being put in prison for marijuana?

"...over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign"." — from the essay On Liberty by John Stuart Mill



One of the reviews from

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

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

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 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. 



This book is about great times.  
The best part is, THESE are those times!  

Stay safe and happy...

I owe all of these folks my deepest appreciation...and, more business.
