One thought on “Mary Jane, The Woman Who Escaped A Firing Squad

  1. A couple of main points stand out. She wasn’t selling or buying, nor using. She was only in possession (and that was a trick in her). Second, remarkable that a woman saw the story or prayers or hope and petition and realized she had the needed international legal information needed to meaningfully fight the inevitable blaming and killing of Mary Jane.
