“Most dealers use crude presses made out of automobile frames in order to make the harvested marijuana into bricks, or kilos. A large hydraulic jack is used to push the marijuana down into the press.”
“The finished kilo—2.2 pounds of gold—is shown here. Many dealers soak their grass in a sugar solution before bricking—here Pepsi-Cola is being used. The sugar helps bind the weed, but destroys some of its potency. Gringo smugglers try to avoid sugared marijuana.”

“When he mustered out of the Navy, a particularly high tide swept him into Sausalito’s waterfront where he met Dredge, the equally notorious and recalcitrant operator of an ancient tugboat, the Loafer. Together the two of them harass the bay, running Coast Guard blockades to deliver Indians to Alcatraz, chopping holes in the bottoms of touristy Chris Craft boats, making wine runs to the No Name Bar.” —Jerry Kamstra, Scanlan’s (1970)
