U.S. Republican Fred D. Thompson said Sunday that he was unaware of his closest advisors on his campaign having criminal records for selling cocaine and marihuana.Hey, it's like 11 pounds of dope, or about $5,500 worth of smoke, in 1979 dollars, at the general middle tier wholesale value, with discount for volume purchasing. It is so clearly NOT a really big deal like he were selling Crack to white people.
Philip Martin, 49 pleaded guilty in 1979 for selling 11 pounds of marihuana, according to the Sunday edition of Washington Post. The court withheld judgement-pending completion of his probation. In 1983 he did not contest the charges with violation of his probation and cocaine trafficking and conspiracy and he was continued on probation.

Where this does get problematic is with:
As of November, Hamilton County, Tenn. records show that four of Martin's former businesses owe a total of more than $940,000 in overdue taxes and interest to the county, with some debts dating back to 1999. Nearly $860,000 is owed by Soil Restoration, a firm Martin helped run, according to the Washington Post. Four Seasons Technologies, of which Martin was a vice chairman and part owner, owes $4,200. M & M Holdings, which the Washington Post confirmed Sunday was a Martin concern, owes more than $7,000. Alternative Fuels, LLC, a Martin business located at the same address and suite number as Four Seasons, owes more than $71,000.Hum....
More than a dozen states have also filed dozens of liens against Martin's former businesses.
