New Website Promotes New Memoir Revealing True Smuggling Tales During The Days Of Marijuana Prohibition
This new memoir, 45-years in the making, details the adventure and humor, the successes and screw ups, in these real stories of real people who might live down the street and who worked in the marijuana smuggling industry in the 70s, 80s and 90s. They used single-engine planes, sailboats and power boats to smuggle pot from Colombia, Mexico and the Philippines to the states to distributors during a 30-year marijuana -- never cocaine -- smuggling career. But it's all in the past, so Feds relax.
Don flew single-engine planes in the 1970s back and forth to Columbia, carrying up to a million dollars-worth of pot per load, in today's money and finally told his story to award-winning writer, M. Dennis Taylor.
"I tell about the life of a smuggler," said Don. "When marijuana is legal, we will be like the rumrunners during prohibition and people might be interested in the history of how it was in Smugglers' Times."
During a 30-plus-year career, working under aliases, Don brought marijuana through the Keys, an area with thousands of places to hide, that's been a haven for smugglers since the times of the Spanish Main up until sometime late last night. Don and his friends used planes, boats and vehicles, and expanded connections throughout the states, Mexico and the Philippines, reportedly even working with Federal Agents.
Released by ASPCI Publishing Division, Smugglers' Times: Smuggling In The Days Of Marijuana Prohibition is available through Amazon, your local bookstore, or by visiting SmugglersTimes.com.
A brisk-read written in journalistic style by Taylor, a South Florida writer with 40-years of experience in writing newspaper and magazine pieces and three books. "It's a fast-moving tale filled with adventure, humor and an in-depth look behind the scenes of the smuggling industry," said Don.
With a cast of characters that made and spent millions of dollars during play-filled lives, they all believed the adage that "for adventure, there is risk."
