    One thought on “To Live Outside the Law: Caught by Operation Julie, Britain's Biggest Drugs Bust”

    1. A good read from a drug dealer with morales - love them hippies!!!Would have only got 3 stars but added an extra one as he was from the DING and probably sold my dad acid back in the dayNow. I am living with the consequencesa veggie patch rather than goalposts in the back gardentie dye hand me downs from my brothere Jimi Hendrix fear etc. facebook/1000cutts come join the future

    2. Having read Operation Julie, it was clear having then read this book, that the author was not too keen on portraying the truth in his account of events and I found much of the book unbelievable and poorly written. I'm sure that if it had been written as it actually was, it would have been a far better read.

    3. This book is a bit of a mish-mash of anecdotes about Leaf Fielding's travels, troubles with authority and experiences in the drug underground. Some of it is entertaining enough but I found it a little self-indulgent and even irritating at times.

    4. My first LSD was made by this crew, changed my life for the better, thanks for that. A couple of the reviews for this book seem a bit unfair, maybe it helps if youv'e had a trip or two. The guy is not a writer, he's a tripper and manufacturer of LSD so give him a bit of slack. Taking this into account I really enjoyed this story, sure he's not Shakespear but who is. He is funny though, he tells us of police getting contact highs when handeling the stuff. Also while he was manufacturing the LSD h [...]

    5. Mainly dull, self-indulgent and charmless. He frequently talks about some drug-addled acquaintance that could spin an amazing yarn. Shame he's not one of them.
