70. There was an author named Peter McWilliams
Who wrote an excellent book, Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do:The Absurdity of Consensual Crimes in Our Free Country, which talked about the stupidity of drug laws. He was an advocate for medical marijuana. He contracted AIDS and cancer and was using cannabis to help with the treatment. Needless to say the DEA went after him, and while out on bail, he would die caused by the reactions of the drugs he was taking, because he could not use cannabis, for fear of having his mother's house confiscated if the DEA went after him again. The war on drugs is America's homegrown version of Vietnam and Iraq.
