Dear Ed,

Fortunately my secretary is observant so she went to your website and now I am clear on your background.

You have sent me this email re: Amsterdam Fair asking if you can have some pictures of my bags in use so you can publish in your new indoor horticultural book. Now that I have seen your website I understand obviously you have had one too many joints and it’s blown away what may be left of your brain cells.

I also know why you were in Amsterdam as its policy on drugs suits your lifestyle and then you visit Horti Fair to see if they have any new drug growing equipment.

I am 66 years of age and had 15 years of personal torment as one of my children got involved in drugs and almost destroyed our marriage and my wife to the point of a nervous breakdown. When I looked at your website and saw your profile I decided next time I want to see this guy is between my headlights at high speed or in the sights of a gun. One day if you ever come back to earth you may realise how many families and innocent children’s lives you have destroyed.

You send me this cute email to fool me that you are heavily involved in horticulture and my product is great for growing beautiful trees when all along you are advocating using them for growing dope to destroy lives.

If I find that you use any of my photos for this purpose I will immediately lodge a complaint with the Chamber of Commerce in Australia who will forward to their appropriate associates in the USA and also to the Consul General and Senior Trade Commission Office in the United States.

Instead of wasting my time and let me think I have a genuinely interested author who wants to publish good things about growing common species of trees why didn’t you simply ask if you could use my bags for growing dope and it would save time.

By the way, do people like you ever feel guilty when you see or read about family break ups or drug related suicides? I guess the answer would be no as you don’t have enough brain cells left to think straight you idiot


Steve Turner,

Dear Steve…


…As for your insults, I am going to publish this letter and make sure it gets all around in Australia so everyone knows not to buy your bags because you don’t want them used for marijuana, I am sure you will appreciate that.
