Marijuana's Newest Martyr: Roger Pion - Red Tractor Driving Farmer in Vermont
The day was hot on thursday, Aug. 2, 2012, and Roger Pion, a good ol' boy all American hot blooded red tractor driving farmer just had enough. He was still stewing over having been arrested last month for pot charges.
Roger Pion, 34 year old Vermont farmer, was accused of crushing cop cars with his own red farm tractor .
Roger Pion, is a 34 year old Vermont farmer, and according to authorities he was allegedly angry over being arrested the previous month for marijuana possession, and he took out his anger by using his tractor to drive over seven sheriff's department vehicles and cars, crushing them just like a Monster Truck Rally and flattening them.
He was taken into police custody shortly afterwards on Thursday afternoon when he was arrested by Newport Police two miles from the alleged crime scene after he abandoned his red farm tractor and attempted to flee.
No doubt the marijuana legalization movement, country singing stars of America, and the movie industry will be asking for permission to visit him in jail, and they'll write songs and make movies about our newest American martyr for the marijuana movement. You know what kind of brownies to send him.
Cris Ericson, marijuana legalization candidate in Vermont, appeared a few hours later, after 5:25 p.m. that same day, on public access t.v. in a 2012 U.S. Senate candidate forum and declared that it is an error for the government to call it a 'war on drugs' because it is really a "Civil War Against Peoples' Right to Choose".
