I am proud to say that I am a member of Roger Christie's so-called THC

I have known this man for many years and have always seen him to be
peaceful and considerate in his dealings with others.

His primary motivation has been the preservation of our First
Amendment rights. "Congress shall make no laws respecting the
establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
The use of THC is part and parcel of our religion.

To say that Roger is a threat to the community is totally ludicrous.
The real threat would seem to be the judge, who doesn't know about the
Fourth Amendment, and the "Green Harvest" fiasco.

On an island where the government cannot supply decent roads, water
systems, sewage or even mail delivery to much of the populace, there
can still be found millions and, yes, billions of dollars for
satellite surveillance, helicopter terrorists, residence invasion,
prosecution and many years of prison for people whose only crime is
growing a plant.

According to the U.S. Department of Health, last year substance-caused
deaths ran as follows: tobacco was 61 percent; alcohol 36 percent; all
other drugs, prescription and non, 3 percent; and THC, zero percent.

"Green Harvest" should be called by a more fitting name.
Unfortunately, I cannot think of one that is not so profane that you
would print it.
