Peter McWilliams was a New York Times best-selling author. He was everywhere from the Oprah Winfrey Show to TIME Magazine. His books spanned from poetry to computers, from personal growth to political, among them, "How to Survive the Loss of a Love," "Ain't Nobody's Business if You Do" and "You Can't Afford the Luxury of a Negative Thought." In later years Peter was diagnosed with AIDS and Cancer and discovered medical marijuana.He was in the process of writing: "A Question of Compassion: An AIDS-Cancer Patient Explores Medical Marijuana" but died before being able to complete it. He died at the young age of 50. He had become an outspoken cannabis warrior, and the DEA  labeled Peter a "drug kingpin," they raided his house, took his computer and his latest works in progress. Peter was jailed for thirty days. He was going to go to trial, and he was told if he smoked marijuana again, he'd go to prison and his mother and brother would lose his house. Peter died at the young age of 50, never making it to trial, and many feel the government murdered him. On March 31st, Easter Sunday, this book will become a youtube video narrated by American Weed's (National Geographic) Josh Stanley. Peter's books in print are still available by ordering through petermcwilliams.org.
