I was busted twice in 1978 for possession of more than 15 grams of pot. I served 90 days for each charge. They tore my great grandmothers house apart and never found anything. They didn't even say they were sorry. She was in her 70's at the time.

How could anybody be busted for such a wide variety and large a supply get away with 10 days.

I guess you get that kind of treatment when you can afford to pay $100,000 with one check.

As far as wrestling goes he needs to do a year of rehab at least before anyone should trust him enough to put him back in the ring. Listen to the wrestlers. No one wants him around. He puts their health and livelihood at risk.

Yip! He ain't no Jeff Farmer, but who is? This guy needs to hang around more positive people like Richie Rouge, Tony the Spider, Bulldozer, Will Bill Ass, Chief Thunder Mountain, and Motley Cruz. Don't forget Hillbilly Jim - he was a man of the people. Boy! he was hung like a horse.

Jeff as entertained people for years.I believe his addiction stems from the amount of painkillers he took,following genuine wrestling injuries.
