This book is a fraud????? Well I can tell you that an oz of pot in Australia has never ever been close to $1200.Try $250-400 depending who you knew and I can also tell you that non Indonesians can and do sell it for what ever they like in places like Bali to pot smoking cashed up surfers and tourists who just want a safe supplier while on holiday. And please, do not use New Idea as reference for truth or fact. I think Corby spin team may be behind this particular review. My interpretation on the book is that it is in the right direction but lacking all the pieces to put this puzzle together, but lets face it we will never get the truth as this will just implicate other players from the said family. Well worth a read.
