This is a story, based on the truth behind cannabis prohibition, and the one hypothetical case that could put an end to it all. I loved it.


Previously titled "Satan's Smoke," this novel, both comedic as well as informative, should not be confused by virtue of its name to be a rather stuffy synopsis on an existent court case.

About the author.

Back in 2010, a lawyer didn’t just put his name on a work of fiction undermining the entire history of the nation’s cannabis laws, but Thomas Howard also enjoyed using the pen-name Hoam Rogh because he credits it for how he wrote all his work.  He wrote all the words on him Mac computers – which if you look at where you put your fingers, you will see the Home Row of your keyboard.  And now you know how to prounce and Hoam Rogh means. 

Since writing Satan’s Smoke, retitiled Case of US v Yerbas, Thomas has used the experience to develop a mobile app, build numerous websites, and even developed one heck of a cracker jack website on the cannabis laws –  Check him out on there, or on the Cannabis Legaliation News channel.  And keep fighting the good fight – we’ll win this yet!
