This is the last volume in the trilogy of K. Hawkeye Gross' 11-year career as a marijuana smuggler. In Reefer Warrior , he chronicled his journey from a decorated Air Force pilot in Vietnam to a ton-hauler of marijuana smuggled in from Colombia. In Tales from the Joint , he described his 18 months of incarceration in the Florida State Prison System. In Marijuana Flyboys , Hawkeye tells about life after prison.

What does a white, middle-class, college-educated, USAF-trained pilot/convicted felon do once he leaves jail for smuggling marijuana? Finding himself with limited career choices, he couldn't resist the lure of rolling the smuggling dice once again and going after the big payday.

In Marijuana Flyboys , the action shifts from Colombia to the island paradise of Jamaica, the home of the best weed on the planet. The game was still the same: planning and equipping the missions, eluding the authorities, and hoping for the enormous profits of the illegal ganja-importing business. During his time in the business, Hawkeye made and lost a lot of money, including the loss of seven airplanes with a market value of over $500,000, none of them covered by insurance. His story is filled with adrenaline-laced adventures, and misadventures, from an era now past.

Join Hawkeye and his marijuana flyboys for the last installment of his high-flying, action-filled campaign in the war on drugs . . . from the dark side.
