It's funny- for some reason that brings closure to a long awaited question about her opinion of such things since, despite her more general public persona, she is quite intelligent and has many good viewpoints. Of course this still leaves open the question of "Can she and does she grow Cannabis blooms as big as her Canada Lillies?" Thanks for the link, biO.

wow, my respect for her just went up a lot.

I never thought that Martha Stewart would be an opponent to the war on drugs.

NEW YORK - Martha Stewart (news - web sites), in a Christmas message posted on her personal Web site, called Wednesday for sentencing reform and took a swipe at the "bad food" in prison.

Stewart, who is roughly halfway through a five-month sentence for lying about a stock sale, urged fans to think about the women she has met in prison who are "devoid of care, devoid of love, devoid of family."


She suggested Americans should push for reforms in federal sentencing guidelines for nonviolent first-time offenders and particularly for drug offenders, who she said would be better served by rehabilitation than prison.


Stewart, who built a billion-dollar empire in homemaking, reported that her job at the federal prison camp in Alderson, W.Va., has been cleaning, including sweeping, vacuuming and raking leaves.


"I have had time to think, time to write, time to exercise, time to not eat the bad food, and time to walk and contemplate the future," she said.


Earlier this month, her company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc, announced Stewart would host a daytime talk show with a live studio audience beginning this fall.


The company has been working with reality TV pioneer Mark Burnett, and shares of the media company have soared since Stewart reported to prison ? although they have fallen back somewhat in recent weeks.


Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia shares rose 71 cents to $27.95 in midday trading on the New York Stock Exchange (news - web sites).


Stewart is due to be released in early March from Alderson, then must spend five months confined to her home in Bedford, N.Y. The television show is scheduled to air after the five months of house arrest end.


Stewart and her former stockbroker, Peter Bacanovic, were convicted in March of lying about why Stewart unloaded shares of ImClone Systems Inc. stock in 2001, just before the price plunged. Both are appealing.

> I never thought that Martha Stewart would be an opponent to the war on drugs

Yeah, it is amazing when you actually see what real drug offenders are like, rather then imaginging what they are like from government propaganda. I think Martha is experiencing first hand how badly the government screws over peoples lives for no reason other than to maintain a dictator like control over the population. When she sees that over half of the inmates with her are decent people that got tossed in jail for simple possession, it is hard to not see the lies that we have been fed all of our lives. Perhaps she will learn from her karma; she has the resources to make a difference once she is free.

> wow, my respect for her just went up a lot

I have always had respect for her and what she has accomplished, I just never cared for her personality and her not-so-nice business practices. I also feel that her prison sentence was very harsh. If Enron hadn't been in the news at the time she would have gotten probation at most.

The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won't let go of life, your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you, they're freeing your soul. So, if you're frightened of dying and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away, but if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth...

They can't keep her in jail forever... she has too large of a fan base, and is too smart and wealthy for that. Assuming she want's to get back at the system when she is free, this would be a nice route to go.

Hopefully she won't forget all about it when she gets out.

The only thing I'm skeptical about, is that maybe she's just trying to get press. Th public hasn't heard much from her recently, and theres no better way to get people's attention than to speak out about drugs.

Good for her. Maybe this prison sentence will open her eyes to things she never thought of before. It sounds like it already has.

I think that she is hot hot hot. That prim and proper gambit is just a facade. Bet the ranch that she fucks like a naughty little whore. I would treat her like the pig that she is.
