What I liked and disliked about this book are basically the same thing, the main character Jimmy. The story is about how he accidentally came across some bales of marijuana, sold it and a new career as drug dealer was born.

Written by my former neighbor, John McCaslin - a very entertaining tale of a highly unlikely - yet highly likable - marijuana smuggler from the Bahamas. Peppered with historical and geo-political tidbits (which should raise some eyebrows in DC) Weed Man tells Jimmy Divine's story in such a way that I felt I'd just had a conversation with the man, himself. Throughout his many precarious escapades in the island waters, and considering his generous spirit, you actually end up rooting for the guy to ...more

I was hoping for more detailed information on smuggling operations, something more along the lines of
