The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land and all other
laws must be consistent with it. The purpose of our government is
to protect all Americans from having our basic constitutional
rights violated. The Free Press gives headlines to the most
wanted drug fugitives associated with the "Greer-Hutchinson
Conspiracy", yet makes no mention of how the US Prosecutors
Office is fighting to deny Greer and co-defendents one of their
most basic Constitutional rights, that of a fair and impartial jury.

I and many others with whom I have spoken regarding this issue,
are happy to know that some people have escaped prosecution from
the unjust marihuana laws that have their roots in racism,
sexism, greed and political nonsense.
