Drug smuggler goes straight
Brian O'Dea of Toronto, Ont., Canada, served his time --
10 years, for pot smuggling. Now that he's out he wants to go straight:
He took out a display ad in the "employment wanted" section headlined "Former Marijuana Smuggler" in the Toronto-based National Post looking for legitimate employment. Qualifications? "Owned and operated a successful fishing business -- multi-vessel, one airplane, one island processing facility," the ad reads. "Simultaneously owned and operated a fleet of tractor-trailer trucks conducting business in the United States. During this time, I also ... participated in the executive-level management of 120 people worldwide, in a successful pot smuggling venture with revenues in excess of US$100-million annually."
In an interview with the paper, O'Dea said he hopes "someone will read that ad and realize, jeez, not only did he operate that scheme, but he did it in secret. That shows tremendous coordinating ability."
