Attorney General conducted interviews with all parties except one
who died in June. Feel free to read the NH 1 article in the show
notes, as well as their conversations with the AG. These reps
include Pamela Tucker, Amanda Bolden, Joseph Lachance, and Ted
- Broadly, I’m wondering why any of them would
say anything. Probably in exchange for amnesty, but what did the AG
really have one them? Some online communication perhaps. But unless
they could track the money, or witnessed the sale, I’m wondering
why they said anything at all.
disappointed any liberty minded reps would participate so fully.
Perhaps there are circumstances beyond my knowledge, and if so, I’m
free to change my mind later. At first read, dissapointed. Bouldin
and Lachance were pretty detailed in discussing their interactions
with Tasker, Bouldin naming Pamela Tucker as someone who she knew
purchased drugs from Tasker. Lachance quite forthright about
details of his purchases, as well as Tasker’s
- Pamela Tucker is a complete hypocrite. Her
official position is against marijuana use. So it’s ok to lock
peaceful people up for using a plant, but she gets away with it

wife battled cancer and used marijuana to suppress the terrible
side affects of her treatment.

- Rockingham County: Named after Charles
Watson-Wentworth 2nd Marquess of Rockingham. He was Prime minister
from 1765-66 tried to repeal the Stamp Act while PM. He was leader
of the opposition for the following 12 years and was a staunch
supporter of constitutional rights for the colonists. In a latter
he wrote, "I fear indeed
the future struggles of the people in defence of their
Constitutional Rights will grow weaker and weaker. It is much too
probable that the power and influence of the Crown will increase
rapidly. We live at the period when for the first time since the
Revolution, the power and influence of the Crown is held out, as
the main and chief and only support of Government. If we...do not

Constitution may be reduced"

England. Which was the port where NH colony founder John Mason had

Governor Samuel Shute for his friend Laurence Hyde, 1st Earl of
Rochester brother-in-law to King James II
- Gonic: Short for Squamanagonic. Abenaki for
“water of the clay place hill”

caused the current spelling

Peske(branching) tegwe(strong tidal river).

Company incorporated in 1827 also had a clerical error removing the
final h when they were incorporated. Most people now pronounce it
