Hello out there,
Aloha. This is an extra exciting time as we’re almost at the blood red full moon / lunar eclipse on Monday-Tuesday April 14-15th, then International Cannabis Day and Easter Sunday combined on “4-20”, April 20th, then sentencing for Share and me on Monday afternoon April 28th, the same day as the solar eclipse. A very rare and hopeful astrological Grand Cross is due in the heavens from April 20th through April 23rd. How good can these times get?
Last week the U.S. Sentencing Commission unanimously passed a change in sentencing ‘guidelines’ that will reduce most federal drug sentences by a few months beginning November 1st. It’s reported that they will soon meet to expand the sentence reduction to being retro-active. We’ve heard that Share might get to benefit from this positive change with a small reduction in her potential prison sentence.
The Department of Justice has been working with Congress to pass a major reduction in mandatory minimum sentences for most drug crimes. The proposal is to cut the sentences in half, or more. The law passed its first vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee a few months ago. I’m still facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years. If and when this correction happens, a 5 year mandatory minimum sentence will be reduced to a 2 year sentence.
As of today, April 11, 2014 I’ve already served over 45 months in federal custody. The normal sentencing ‘guidelines’ say that my prison sentence should be 36 – 43 months, however I’m facing a “mandatory minimum” of 60 months at sentencing on April 28th. If I get a 60 month sentence this is what my time might look like:
60 months total prison sentence
– 9 months, or 15% off for ‘good time’
= 51 months to serve
– 45 months already served
= 6 months left. Official release date is October 8, 2014.
I’m told that I could be released to the halfway house in Honolulu any time after April 28th. After living there for a few months I could be released to home sometime this summer, maybe in time for my 65th birthday on June 15th.
We’re hoping and praying that Share gets probation and zero prison time as her sentence, or better. Part of her conditional plea agreement is that she gets to stay free at home until all of our appeals are heard in the Ninth Circuit Court in San Francisco next year, and / or the U.S. Supreme Court after that, if necessary. If and when we win our appeals we get our sentences overturned and we win our case; our cash and stash and our condo in Hilo gets returned to us.
This is the time of measurable positive change for “we the people”, and especially for the Cannabis culture. We give thanks for our blessings and for having many of our prayers answered.
All the very best to you and yours!
P. S. Do you know about the “elixir of vitality”? It’s possibly the healthiest drink on Earth. Take a SEEDED Cannabis flower top ‘bud’ and grind it up with whole organic milk. Cannabis is fat soluble and needs the milk fat to dissolve and get active. Strain-out the pulp and drink the ‘Green Milk’ fresh. Simple as that. See LEAF on YouTube.com and Cannabis International for information on juicing Cannabis leaves and buds with carrots.

The best of health to everyone!
