Veterans should be a thing of the past.

In today’s New York Times:

MANHATTAN: MUSIC EXECUTIVE CONVICTED The chief executive of a reggae music production company has been convicted of smuggling more than a ton of marijuana a week from California to New York over the past eight years, federal prosecutors said. The executive, Horatio Hamilton, president of Lords of Yard Inc., was convicted of conspiracy to traffic in marijuana, Michael J. Garcia, the United States attorney, said yesterday in a written statement. Mr. Garcia said Mr. Hamilton jumped bail after he was arrested in 1999 with nearly two tons of marijuana in Los Angeles. He later became a prominent music producer and creator of Sashi, a three-day reggae concert in Jamaica. Mr. Hamilton, who was rearrested last year, faces a mandatory sentence of 20 years in federal prison, prosecutors said. (NYT)
