"I wrote a letter to the editor of the Birmingham News, Alabama's largest newspaper. In that letter I asked all Alabamians who felt that the marijuana laws were wrong to become involved in the process to change them....


Police obtained a search warrant based on that letter, and an alleged statement by my then 5-year-old daughter to the school D.A.R.E. officer.

They raided my home military style and called child service workers to try and kidnap my children.

They claim to have found eighty-seven-hundredths (0.87 gm) of a gram of pot in an envelope addressed to me, lying on top of my printer.

I was arrested; strip-searched, fingerprinted, photographed and locked in jail.

The full force of the federally funded drug war apparatus had been brought to bear on my family and me.

This was not the open political process, which I had been assured of by my birthright as an American.

Thus began my counter-attack, what has become a life consuming, all out frontal assault on U.S. drug policy."
