and i wish to point out that i'm lucky to have a mind on which to have things
Johnman,someone needed to say what was on your mind and you said it very well....
my apologies, i shouldn't have taken the bait, which it so obviously was. i need to learn that i don't always need to defend my position, but should on point.
This thread is a good one and really belongs here. Why? Because it is a worthy topic in and of itself but also because the deadheads were basically a counter and outlaw culture. Outlaws eventually go to jail. So we have brothers and sisters who are deadheads in jail, usually for things that are now becoming legalized or should be legalized, in most deadheads opinion.
Being on the outside we should support those nonviolent friends on the inside, not endlessly debating whether they belong there.
The Grateful Dead performed at least 2 concerts near or inside a prison. It was the subject material of several songs.
If you can write to a deadhead in jail or provide transitional housing and/or employment upon release then you are doing a wonderful thing and lessening the chances of somebody making a repeat trip and THAT is a KIND thing to do.

May we all be blessed with the freedom we deserve....and if you don't deserve your freedom,may the music turn on your love light and let it shine....

''dont do the crime if you cant do the time''yes,very wise old sayin.And of course i agree that every brutalo dealer of i dont know what powders should stay in a cell together with a 300 pound 6 feet tall pedophile.but that is not really the point.if you look back to swans post there one can read that at a recent concert 31 DHs has been arrested.so the game is goin on and as Furthur will hit the road many more people might find themselves in very uncomfortable situations.i think there is no place for jokes here because the people this is about,might be sittin beside you at the gig,share a doobie and get busted with some more doobies afterwards.but that you might not notice....well,i am just a stupid eurohead and after all this aint my problem,because the slammed prisons are over the ocean!!!
