Howard Marks (the drug runner) returns to Taipei

As pointed out in the comments below the article, it’s surprising Marks is able to travel so freely given his past.

Well, not really. Being a bit of a celebrity, he’s probably good for the “cool Britannia” image, and his views on dope are a bit more nuanced these days. Besides, didn’t he say he just got bored with the whole thing? I don’t think anyone expects him to be carrying a few kilos in his luggage - he can probably make more money from the lecture circuit :wink:

His book has a whole chapter about his sojourn in Taiwan. He also spent a lot of time in HK and Bangkok.
