'and, his SUPER SUDS
2178 2PM-2AIR


If somebody tells you drug laws
overseas are relaxed, that somebody
is talking through his hat.
If somebody tells you the system
of justice gives you all the rights of a
United States citizen in the United
States, that's a bunch of baloney.
You should get the facts straight.
The truth is their drug laws are tough.
And they enforce them to the letter.
There's a girl from the United
States sitting in a Rome jail right now.
She'll be there for six to ten months
awaiting trial. With no bail. Not even
a chance for it. If she's convicted, it's
a minimum of three years. Carrying
stuff across a border, from one
country to another, is asking for
trouble. And you'll get it.
That's their law. And there's no
way around it.
Over 900 United States citzens
are doing time on drug charges in
foreign jails right now. And nobody
can get them out. Not family. Or
friends. Or the smartest lawyer in town.
Not the United States government.
If you're planninga visit to
Europe, the Middle East or south of
our own border, check out the
countries. Get the facts. And get them
straight before you leave.
One fact will come through.
Loud and clear.
When you're busted for drugs
over there, you're in for the hassle of
your life.
