It is astonishing the way efforts toward legalizing marijuana use have gone since about the 1970’s when Vietnam War Veterans brought it back home with them.

The oath that Aaron Kenefick held so seriously went far beyond the things that lead similar people to greatness. He had to uphold his values against the malicious intentions of members of his own government who far outranked him. It would lead him to a mission that he would not survive, because the elimination of Aaron Kenefick was the real objective of the ambush at Ganjgal in September 2009.
