kellyslater So...I recently optioned my old friend #PeterMaguire’s book, 'Thai
Stick' for film and tv rights. We have begun work on a documentary film and several parties are interested in making an episodic tv series about it. This is a history they certainly don't teach you in school but an important and significant cultural phenomenon that occurred mostly undocumented. It took the professional historian and former smuggler 15 years to complete and it is based on thousands of hours of interviews. They document everything you didn't know about pot smuggling from the late 60's thru early 80's, diving into every aspect of the game from personal to political. Even #TimothyLeary and #RichardNixon make cameos. As an innocent kid growing up in Florida, I knew nothing about this stuff but heard lots of stories about the surfing/smuggling connections related to people I knew. I was always intrigued hearing about the guys I considered to be #RealLifePirates. A lot of what I know now comes from the pages in this book and corroborates things I heard as a kid. With the current atmosphere around #MarijuanaLegalization and the connected topics, it seems timely to bring this thing to life. This in no way condones drug use or dealing of any sort. But it does bring into question inconsistencies around drug laws and philosophical questions about personal choice and outlawing nature. #ThaiStick #CrabClawRoachClip?! #IDontSmoke

  •   jonathan_winslow Mary J was my Mistress n Master. Loved personal stories from fellow fish heads n taxi drivers who lived the Ganga pirate lifestyle in Key West. Now my go to drugs are AA, Mookshi Yoga, and zen Buddhist meditation. Not so lost in ego self-centeredness. More giving, less taking, and flyin high n clear. Intending to be humble n peace loving, and eventually moving from Peaceburgh back to tropical waters n waves. Hemp could, however, totally replace big oil and pharma with its millions of uses and cures. 9mon

kellyslater This book is unbelievable. The history lessons they don't teach you in school. Written by an old friend of mine, #PeterMaguire (with #MikeRitter), #ThaiStick details everything you didn't know about #DrugSmuggling from everywhere it was available in Asia spreading to the rest of the world from the late 60's thru early 80's. Surfers and the lifestyle it afforded them just happened to be one perfect combination to pull off a lot of covert stuff. Smuggling and scamming offered ex-pats, draft-dodgers, and traveling surfers a means to an end after dodging or avoiding the Vietnam war. You probably won't want to #HolidayInCambodia, Laos, Afghanistan, or Vietnam anytime soon after reading this story (or you might) but you'll learn a lot about the history of this way of life and geography of Indo-Asia. #TimothyLeary and #RichardNixon even make cameos. Book 1 of 2. The stories are too good not to be turned into a tv series or film. #TheReasonSurfersGotABadRep 2y
