    If anyone has any doubt about the perverse nature of the "justice system", they should read this book. It requires a formidable twist in reason and morality to call growing a plant a crime while at the same time making real crimes- arson, theft, kidnapping and fraud committed by the "authorities" completely beyond the reach of real justice. Wright tells this nightmarish account from the "War on Drugs" with insight, wit and passion.

    "A fine, sensitive portrayal" Truly a remarkable story, as it says on the back of the book, "a cross between Forrest Gump and Midnight Express." The author has this typical Tom Hanks'-character quality of making the best of a truly awful situation with a quip and a subtle, often deep, insight. But you know he's suffering, especially becoming sensitized to the pain of these others who are more typically abused by this inhumane, police-state "prosecutocracy"... because of various ludicrous, unconstitutional government prohibitions. Anyone who reads this book yet clings to support of drug prohibition is like the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, missing both a brain and a heart. Phyllis Barlow

    "How many stories does it take to sink the "drug war"" Hopefully this one will contribute. This was obviously one of the motivations for Brian to become a freestater (see:"New Pilgrim Chronicles" on this site). The effect it had on his life was minor compared with many of the abused, but not insignificant. Being kidnapped and "extradited" across the nation for (even you assume certain harmless substances should be illegal) a bad prosecution. The destruction of home and almost life caused by said prosecution. How much havoc shall we reek before we stop our agents aggression against our neighbors. We need as a people look much closer at the activities wrought by those with our loaned power and treasure.

    "A Chilling Reminder" The so-called "War on Drugs" seriously compromises millions of human lives each year, but few are able or willing to tell their stories. By contrast, this author is both willing and able. Laced with an interesting mix of color and social commentary, Brian Wright's incarceration narrative serves as a chilling reminder of the Drug War's human consequences.
