It's been close to two years since former Dallas Cowboy Kurt Vollers pleaded guilty to his role in a pot-distribution "conspiracy" run from 2006 till '08 out of an apartment on N. MacArthur Boulevard, and more than a year since John Newton, the leader of the so-called Newton Drug Trafficking Organization, netted himself 24 years in federal prison. Vollers was to have been sentenced in March of 2010, but for whatever reason he didn't find out his jail time till today. And it's no small stint: Per the U.S. Attorney's Office, Vollers has been sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge Sidney A. Fitzwater to 30 months in federal prison; he has till March 20 to surrender. As the feds recap it today, short and sweet:
Vollers actively assisted Newton by, among other things, facilitating the delivery of marijuana to the Dallas area, facilitating the storage of marijuana, repackaging bulk marijuana for sale, distributing marijuana to buyers, facilitating the transfer of money from buyers to Newton and counting the proceeds from the sale of marijuana.
On the bright side, feds once spoke of possibly giving Vollers 40 years max and slapping him with a $2 million fine.

...more casualities of a failed and senseless drug war...why can't marijuana be legal like wine - as it is in other areas of the world?...this would keep thousands out of jail and make billions in fees...

I wonder how many tax dollars were used to take these violent mobsters off the street and house them for months or years in a federal prison.  Rediculous.  I guess it keeps people employed.  Post up some items stating they sold drugs to kids or were accused of violent acts and I will take it back.  Otherwise, this was just an expensive, large scale investigation, bust and prosecution of some farmers.

One more drug bust, Kurt, and you'll be in line to co-host a radio show on ESPN FM.

Love and light to this American Warrior whom is a good man and a good father....( don't recall seeing any of the clowns on this thread at confession on Saturday),....Remember when your watching your Sunday Pig-fest.....Super-bore,,,,, that many of those young men are easy marks,( not from losers like those who post here---but real creeps, hangers-on, and groupies), that can easily manipulate young men into less than savory endeavors.....Suffice to say, I can only hope and pray for his children whom will go without access to a Papa for a couple of years, his mother whom loves him dearly, and his brothers and sisters whom also love him....... This was a farming/agricultural crime that was no worse than a few banking deals and home sale deals that have gone done in the last few years.....Love and LightGrow-up internet trolls and have some compassion and mental capacity to understand what actually transpired here....Viva Notre DameViva #75Prof.

It's only natural that he is photographed with his mouth open because people as stupid as this are inevitably, 'Mouth Breathers'.  As they'll call him going forward, (Or in greedy asshole's---no prison pun intended case), 'Ex-Hale'.

But it wouldn't make the prisons, judges, and lawyers any money now would it? Stop being so selfish, okay!

American Warrior?... Druggy who married a prostitute and tried to sell drugs instead of work for a living. If that is the definition of an American Warrior, then sir, we are all screwed.

I would never comment on a thing unless it pertains to me. Shut your fucking mouth!!  What exactly have you performed great in your life? Go back to school and make your own "mistakes". Stop hating you are not from L.A you grew up in Bible pumped suburbs and think you have a voice. Shut your mouth already this kid has been through enough shit, if you actually knew him you prick.

depends on the quality of the strain...if the green is mean, well, you do tend to hallucinate in a note great way, or go to prison for trafficking.
