Roger Christie Reaches Out from Detention

Aloha to you Mike, and to your readers. Thanks for all your kindness and support. It matters ~ and we feel it.

I’m doing pretty well considering the situation. I’m really UP spiritually, emotionally, mentally; physically OK. There’s purpose, meaning and love in my life, that’s why. In many ways I feel blessed, and I’m still an activist at heart. We’re living our faith and practicing our spirituality … religiously. We feel this whole experience is part of our personal growth; it’s for an even HIGHer purpose than we previously realized we needed, or wanted. God, that’s great.

Please know that the federal legal system is TOTALLY different from State laws and courts, etc. We had zero idea of how it really worked until this new chapter of our legal education. For instance, I’m told that if I testify in my own defense at a trial that I will be charged with an additional ‘crime’ of “obstructing justice” and have extra years added to any potential sentence. How do you like them apples? It’s a pretty sobering ride, to be sure. Ever hear of that?

Consider that the feds zero admit to this day that there even is such a thing as non-pharmaceutical “medical marijuana” and you begin to get the idea. How can that be? They have the Judge Young decision, the studies of reducing tumors and preventing cancers, etc., etc. and they still deny all of it and let millions of people suffer and die, and others go to prison unnecessarily, lose their children, homes, etc. … routinely. Just another day at the office. Virtually all news media and most citizens allow this to happen, and the Congress members who created this system easily get re-elected again and again.

Now we hear that the feds are starting to license pharmaceutical companies o-n-l-y to grow Cannabis for medicine. “There’s NO medical marijuana except OUR medical marijuana.” You begin to get the idea of how different this ‘government’ is from what we thought it would be as we pledged allegiance to the flag back in grade school … ‘with liberty and justice for all’.

This is a big week for us as ‘plea bargain’ talk is in the air and is on the table for consideration. It’s obviously a big deal for each of us faced with a life-altering decision to make, either way we choose to go. Share and I appreciate all of your comments, ideas and suggestions; whether supportive, critical or whatever, and we will read all that are posted in the coming days.

Please know that we’ve been getting positive, measurable results from our spiritual practice (, and we look forward to a successful outcome. Visualize victory!

Love and respect to everyone,

    Roger, Don’t know if you remember me. I used to live in the corner unit at Wainaku Terrace.. I am living in Japan now with two kids. I have been watching all the news, filled with deep frustration on so many levels. You are taking on the brunt of a shitstorm that should be handled by the millions of secret supporters. You are the man, and I pray for the best outcome. I can’t begin to imagine how much has changed for you, but you have a cause, and you will always be a noted advocate with millions in agreement. Lets dream of the day when the Republic wherein we live begins to hear the voices of its citizens. (tho frightened into silence as a majority of us are)
    Stay strong, Much love, and Good luck!

  • I came to Hilo 5 years ago to help the THC movement, what a ride.

    Aloha Roger, I hope all is well with you even though I know it is not. Your imprisonment must be daunting and seem never ending.Not knowing your fate can be as bad as your circumstance… or even worse. Many people on the outside here feel deeply for you and your situation and believe in you and your cause.
    With regards to the offer on the table, there are two kinds of deals: plead guilty and become a government witness and just plead guilty to avoid trial. It seems that you hold the cards to many others’ fate in this regard. It is thought that there is ZERO chance that you would testify against your co-defendants but others are less sure. Many think of you as a martyr or freedom fighter such as
    Mandella, King, or Ghandi and that your integrity is beyond reproach. Only you know what your decisions will lead too.There has been word that the prosecution has threatened to add charges against you if a religious defense is raised and all “deals” will be taken off the table if motions for suppression or dismissal are filed.That is hardball by definition.
    You have been a great leader in the Hawaii community and many look up to you and others wait with baited breath for your decision. We all support you and understand your quandary.We all know you are carefully considering your options and there are very few to consider. Please be well, God speed, and continue to be the great man we have all come to know and love.WWRD? is the question now.
