Joined 8 years ago from Texas

When I started writing on hubpages over 3 years ago, I had just moved back from Mississippi to my home state Texas. I was just awarded my disablity after a long and difficult 2 1/2 year common denial process during which time I lost everything I owned. I moved in with my father in Corpus Christi, TX and had nothing but time. So I started researching and writing, and then I found hubpages.

Three years later I am now living in San Antonio, TX and am the Founder and CEO of NORML, a non-profit organization that supports legalizing marijuana and ending the drug war. I have had my writing published monthly for two free publications in the Central Texas area, and I acheived High Times Freedom Fighter in this year's June edition of High Times.

    Minor and mass extinctions have occurred over a dozen times since the earth has been occupied by life. It is a natural process. We will one day be wiped out just like life before us.

    For hours I've searched for the ancient, semi-precious stone that fascinates my soul. I have been told there is nothing special about the agates found on the rock banks of Mississippi, but I disagree.
