And just when you think it's getting safer for the main character, it just gets worse.
I'd recommend this book to all and can't wait for the movie!

If I didn't know it was true, I would say this was a work of fiction and that the author had an implausible imagination.
How could so much misfortune be heaped on one person?
How could that person not just survive but be strong enough to still see the good in life? That is what this book is about.
It is a great read and keeps your interest throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wanted ( new version "Quest for Freedom")By Thelma Calvi
This book captured my interest. It's as if it were a made for tv movie but was real life. Amazing...I would recommend this book to all adults over 21. Having over 20 years in the Mental Health Field and working in a jail, this story made me realize how many people are incarcerated wrongly, not that they are innocent but the punishment does not always fit the crime and how quickly things change over the years.
Very well written.
Having changed the title for the final revision, I would greatly appreciate your reviews after you've read this book. Thanks in advance.
When this real life story began, life was very
different. Marijuana was sometimes called, "The Killer Weed"
and a lot of people actually believed this to be true. Due to the ignorance
of society back then, pot was even considered by the general public to be a highly addictive narcotic.
It seems a bit silly today but
because of this attitude and belief
system, many individuals were arrested and sent to prison,
or paid severe penalties that labeled them "criminals," for the rest
of their lives.
This book questions the legal systems of two different countries. It looks closely at our police, lawyers, courts and how the judicial system can go astray and actually ruin lives. It's one thing to be punished for a crime but quite another to never be allowed reintegration into society for as long as you live. In order to understand the ramifications of this endless ball and chain system, everyone in anyway connected to law enforcement, or the creation of laws, should read this book.
The crime in my story had to do with a miniscule amount of marijuana, less than an ounce. Our country was waging war against drugs and I inadvertently became a victim of that war. Oddly, in all of these decades, change came very slowly but at last we are beginning to see that marijuana can actually be a medical aid, while also simply providing a kind of relaxation for people who care to indulge. Some States are now realizing that a lot of money can be made in taxes when legalizing for personal use. Persecuting and prosecuting people for possession of drugs has never improved anything, so when and where does society engage in something that works? When do we stop the war that should never have begun?
Join me in my "Quest for Freedom" and you may just see your world, in a different light.
