The backstory.... (it started a long time ago)
There's a long history of Pendergasts and prohibition bustin'.
Back in the day it was Tom Pendergast and the Pendergast Machine in Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
Today it's Truth + Alibi in BC, Canada.
Inspired by family connections, the BC based Pendergasts (and one from the eastern seaboard of the states) and some of the Styles' family took on the anti-prohibition mantle. Some of us are local and you can find us in the store. Some are from elsewhere in BC but ALL of us are united behind one another as a family.
And family...... as Tom would have said...is everything.
And after all, we are all in this together and dagnab it, the people want some fun at the end of a hard days work! Modern day prohibition was as firmly in place for cannabis as it was for alcohol in the thirties.
It took a court challenge, 2 world-class lawyers named John and Kristin mixed with a whole lotta support from the good people of Sidney. Together, we all busted down that prohibition barrier.
Along the way, we were chuffed to find some of Tom Pendergast's prohibition era newspaper clippings. We took 'em as a sign from the boss. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Remember, TELL THE TRUTH, DON'T GIVE IN TO BULLIES and NEVER, EVER, EVER, GIVE UP!
