Employment wanted

This is an old item and it appears to have been posted on the Web before. But I saw it today for the first time.

I checked Snopes but couldn't find anything on this newspaper ad. (Screen text follows image below.)

The Financial Post, Toronto, February 23rd 2001

Emplyment Wanted: Former Marijuana Smuggler

Having Successfully completed a ten year sentence, incident-free, for importing 75 tons of marijuana into the United States. I am now seeking a legal and legitimate means to support myself and my family.

Business Experience: Owned and operated a successful fishing business - multi vessel, one airplane, one island and one processing facility. Simultaneously owned and operated a fleet of tractor-trailor trucks conducting business in the western United States. During this time I also co-owned and participated in the executive level management of 120 people worldwide in a successful pot smuggling venture with revenues in excess of US$100 million annually.
I took responsibility for my actions, and received a ten year sentence in the untied states while others walked free for their cooperation.

Atributes: I am an expert in all levels of security; I have extensive computer skills, am personable, outgoing, well-educated, reliable, clean and sober. I have spoken in schools to thousands of kids and parent groups over the past ten years on "the consequences of choice", and received public recognition from the RCMP for community service. I am well-traveled and speak English, French and Spanish.

References available from friends, family and the U.S. District Attorney, etc.

About 10+ years ago, I read a story about a former drug smuggler or pot grower who was doing his MBA at Richard Ivey School of Business. I was not successful in finding the story on google. This might be him.
