Depicting one man’s dramatic coming of age; ‘Ethereality’ fuses fact with fiction to highlight the urgency for the legalization of Marijuana. While the media and wider public often shy away from this vital issue, T.H. Craig is using hard-hitting literature as a vehicle for change.
St. Louis, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/31/2013 -- While forty eight States oppose the legalization of Marijuana, crime and spending statistics prove that that substance’s prohibition has cost over forty-billion dollars in incarceration costs during the last three decades. Few are confident enough to champion legalization publically for fear of negative consequences. However, this hasn’t stopped author T.H. Craig from putting Marijuana’s legal status under the spotlight in his powerful new novel.
‘Ethereality’ is capturing the attention of thousands by using a gripping fictional narrative to inspire readers to not only support Marijuana’s legalization, but to actively campaign for it.
Ethereality is a fictional story of growth and change. This account begins with the main character making mistakes and doubting his choices. He takes a wilderness trip to discover who he really is and what is missing from his life.
Along the way, he finds a teacher to guide his journey. He also finds a purpose in a cause—the legalization of marijuana. During this time, he discovers a romantic interest whose playful nature leads to more insight of his troubles.
Events are set into motion during this account. Many players spring from the woodwork resulting in a betrayal. It is a setback along his new path.
Take this journey and discover what fundamental truth our hero finds during this ordeal as he works to fulfill his objective.
The story is set in the present day somewhere in America set with the political realities of our time.
As the author explains, his book continues the recent shift in opinion and politics regarding Marijuana.
“With the laws gradually changing, over half of Americans now support Marijuana’s legalization. The status of the substance in Colorado and Washington is proof of this change. However, more needs to be done on a national scale as legalization would affect the budgets of our Governmental entities immediately. The expenditure for administration and taxes would far outweigh the current prosecution and wider social costs of prohibition,” says Craig.
Continuing, “It is time to face the reality that some of our current drug laws are creating a growing criminal culture epidemic. It is a struggle that will continue to reward those whom use violence as the means to enforce their control. Legalization will remove this criminal element that profits from prohibition and lower the billions of dollars spent each year locking them up.”
Craig also hopes his book will give spawn an alternative to the war on drugs.
“Change will come little by little; but it appears people are not listening to society’s fat cats. Therefore, I’m using literature as a grassroots vehicle for change. I hope my narrative not only gives people a thrilling story, but leaves them something to think about. If I can change just a few opinions I will see it as a vital contribution to my cause,” he adds.
With the book’s popularity increasing, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.

About T.H. Craig
“I once made a purchase. I asked where it came from. “Somewhere from someone” was the answer. It occurred to me that anonymity in this day and age can be a wonderful thing.
As a biography, I grew up in a small town and developed the interests that one does with age. I completed my education through college and discovered there was a lot that I didn’t know. Somehow I needed to know more. Books filled the void beyond the saturation of the media. New forms of information continued to explode. I began looking for something beyond what was available through any media.
Ethereality is my attempt to put these thoughts into form. They say that true change comes from within. As you read these words, I hope you can see things in a different light.”—T. H. Craig
