House will host a book launch tomorrow (Saturday 4 Jan) from 8pm, of Thai
Stick: Surfers, Scammers and the Untold Story of the Marijuana Trade,
which looks at the 70s and 80s trade in dope and the efforts to stop it.
Co-author Peter Maguire will present his book, which includes details
regarding Chris Delance and his friend Michael Deeds, who were sailing
from Singapore to Thailand to collect a cargo
of high-grade pot with the intention of returning to the United States.
That was on 23 November 1978. They were never seen again. The two
friends, both 29 years old, were captured and transported to S-21 by the Khmer Rouge where
they were interrogated and tortured into confessing they were spies
working for the CIA. They were executed soon after.
