"You are about to enter a world of drug smuggling, drug greed, and drug murder." With those words, the West Palm Beach assistant district attorney began the capital murder trial of Judy "Haas" McNelis. The only woman on the U.S. Federal Marshal's 15 Most-Wanted List, Judy had risen to the height of infamy as head of the "Haas Organization," a reputed $267 million dollar-a-year marijuana smuggling empire. But the real story was not what it would seem. Long before the mountains of cash and the jet-set lifestyle of a marijuana smuggling "queen-pin," Judy was simply a divorcee with two young children and a penchant for growing pot.

In the tradition of The Glass Castle, My Most-Wanted Marijuana Mom is a son's candid and dynamic memoir of growing up in an eccentric dysfunctional family as his brash free-spirited mother struggles to succeed in the male-dominated world of international marijuana smuggling. A studious guitar-playing kid striving for normalcy, David Michael is thrust into an extraordinary adventure where dealers and smugglers, daredevil pilots, federal agents and hit men-even an accused KGB spy-are the norm and all part of an unconventional upbringing that provides a revelatory glimpse into a bygone era.
