A notable social media blast from Mr. Thampy:
"I may reach my stated goal of raising a million+ dollars for marijuana legalization in Missouri faster than I anticipated."

TONI BONES GOES TO COURT . . .
"I asked the judge and prosecutor both if I could do something productive instead of pay a fine such a community service. I was refused. When I pled not guilty he asked for an officer to be present. Then three more arrive. When I went to trial he had one of the costumed individuals stand next to me in a continued attempt to intimidate me. He trumped up the fines to 150 dollars and told me if I didn't pay it I am going to be caged for 72 hours.
"At that point I proceeded to tell him he ought to be ashamed of himself, more or less and that the reason I was not intimidated was because I am doing the moral thing. I asked if he felt safer putting a peaceful mom in a cage and proceeded to give stance on the matter. He looked extremely uncomfortable and I basically gave him an eloquent scolding while challenging him to do some self reflection. He ended up backing down last minute continuing it without consulting or asking me. Next court date I am going to jail, he says.
There is value in being a genuine person!"
