Robert 'Bobby Tuna' is one of my all time favorite people. Mr. Platshorn served the longest non-violent, marijuana-only prison sentence in American history. Roughly 30 years total. Since his release, Robert Platshorn has written books and toured America telling people about his story, and spreading the word of reform. He is absolutely one of the biggest assets that the marijuana reform movement has, and I will say it until I'm blue in the face - anyone and everyone needs to hire this guy to work on campaigns and reform efforts. He is one of the most dynamic speakers I have ever seen. If you are looking for the perfect gift for an activist, look no further. Or, if you want to support one of the hardest working, most dynamic activists out there, consider supporting Robert Platshorn's work. I received the following message from Robert Platshorn and The Silver Tour:
It's the holiday season--a terrific book, signed by the Author is an affordable gift that will be kept and enjoyed for a long time.
"Greed and Evil"
Exposes the sinister schemes, people and corporations behind decades of marijuana prohibition laws. Bad laws that are responsible for the arrest and imprisonment of millions of otherwise law-abiding citizens.
I believe that if citizens knew the historical truth behind our marijuana prohibition laws, they would call for their immediate repeal. "Greed and Evil" is one of the best history lessons you will ever receive on marijuana policy, but you must read it to learn the truth. I highly recommend this book for everyone, mainly our elected officials, those possessing the power to end the reefer madness."
