King Of Pot Still On The Run
Two years ago police raided John Robert Boone’s (also known as the Kind Of Pot) farm as they suspected that he was once again growing marijuana plants. Upon arrival the police where right as they managed to seize over 2,400 marijuana plants. When they went for the arrest of John Boone it turned out that he had literally vanished like a puff of smoke. John Boone made his escape as he was facing a life sentence as this would of been his third time being caught growing marijuana. Police have found that tracking down the wanted criminal who resembles a tattooed Santa Clause has proven as hard as “trying to catch a ghost”.
Boone, who's trying to avoid the life sentence sympathizers in an area where many farmers down on their luck have planted marijuana, "That's all he's ever done, raising pot," said long time friend Larry Hawkins, who owns a bar and restaurant called Hawk's Place. "He never hurt anybody." As Hawkins puts it, there are two kinds of growers: "You've got the caught and the uncaught." And, at least for now, the 67-year-old Boone is a bit of both. He spent more than a decade in federal prison after being convicted in the late 1980s of taking part in what federal prosecutors called the "largest domestic marijuana syndicate in American history," a string of 29 farms in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Wisconsin.
