Thumbs down Why MARIJUANA WAS MADE ILLEGAL in the first place

From a historical perspective, marijuana prohibition is an aberration. For thousands of years men and women in many cultures have used cannabis as a curative and a source of fiber and oil. It wasn’t until well into the 20th century that U.S. legislators and their international counterparts imposed a global prohibitionist regime. How did this aberration come to pass and why has it persisted until now?

Concerned that his entire department was on the chopping block because of Depression-era budget cuts, Federal Bureau of Narcotics chief Harry Anslinger launched the Reefer Madness campaign to convince a clueless Congress and the American public that a terrible menace threatened the country, one that required a well-funded antinarcotics effort. Determined to criminalize the herb and build his bureaucratic fiefdom, Anslinger promoted all the hoary myths about marijuana-induced mayhem and sexual depravity—stories of pot-crazed ax murderers, playground pushers, sordid drug dens, and buxom reefer babes whose lives were ruined by smoking the devil’s weed with dark-skinned rogues.

In the world according to Anslinger, marijuana was a deadly, addictive drug that enslaved its users and turned them into violent, deranged freaks. He rang alarm bells in segregated America by claiming that marijuana promoted interracial lust. Prior to the passage of the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act, which effectively banned all forms of hemp, Anslinger pounded home the message: white women are in mortal peril because of marijuana—and so are American children. His racially charged demonization of marijuana paralleled the rise of European fascist regimes that exploited fear and hatred of the Other.

Anslinger’s rabid fictions held sway in American society until the 1960s, when marijuana emerged as a defining force in a culture war that has never ceased. Adopted as the collegiate drug of choice, cannabis was no longer just a weed smoked by marginalized Mexicans and blacks. An illicit substance once confined to the lower socioeconomic strata in the United States suddenly found favor among millions of white middle-class youth. No single factor could account for why marijuana proved so attractive to large numbers of people on a continuing basis around this time. For young people seeking their own generational identity, cannabis was like catnip for a cat, a poorly understood but nonetheless efficient herbal means of navigating the ambient anxiety and frenetic complexity of modern life.

As the times changed and the social consensus around reefer madness crumbled, the arguments against marijuana shifted—the “killer weed” of yore morphed into the ’60s “drop-out drug,” which allegedly blunted ambition and stifled motivation, thereby causing users to detach from society. Anslinger’s outrageous lies about homicidal hopheads may have run their course, but misinformation and omission would remain major weapons in the federal government’s remorseless campaign against cannabis.

One of marijuana prohibition’s pernicious side effects was a baseline level of dishonesty and hypocrisy that America’s ruling class and much of its misled public could not get beyond. Government officials alleged that smoking weed causes cancer, brain damage, addiction, lower IQ, and psychosis, but scientific proof of harm remained elusive. Even if one didn’t believe all negative charges that were leveled against marijuana, the steady drumbeat of deceptions conveyed the overall impression that there must be something bad about the weed.

But Uncle Sam cried wolf too often: first marijuana was said to create maniacal killers, then to produce inert masses of lazy indulgers. When folks caught on that they weren’t getting the straight dope about marijuana, they grew increasingly skeptical of officialdom in general. Organized grassroots protest against marijuana prohibition, which started in the mid-1960s, would evolve into a widespread populist revolt against conventional medicine and extra-constitutional authority.

Denigrated by politicians and deified by dissidents, marijuana became the central focus of a deceitful war on drugs launched by a Machiavellian president, a venal and destructive policy that fostered crime, police corruption, social discord, racial injustice and, ironically, drug abuse itself, while impeding medical advances and economic opportunity. For Richard Nixon, the war on drugs was more than just a formula for padding arrest statistics and looking tough on law and order. It was also a symbolic means of stigmatizing youth protest, antiwar sentiment, rock ’n’ roll music, and other expressions of cultural ferment—underscoring once again that pot prohibition had little to do with the actual effects of the herb and everything to do with who was using it. By disparaging marijuana smokers, Nixon cast aspersions on all the troublesome currents flowing out of the ’60s youth rebellion.


Nixon resigned in disgrace in 1974, but the drug war he set in motion would become a mainstay of American politics. It would escalate under Ronald Reagan and his Oval Office successors. But the precocious herb would not be denied; smoking marijuana was simply too much fun or too essential a balm for too many people. By the end of the 20th century, what was once seen as a dangerous habit of a deviant counterculture had become deeply woven into the fabric of mainstream social and economic life.

A key turning point during the long march toward ending marijuana prohibition came in 1996, when California voters broke ranks from America’s drug-war juggernaut and approved Proposition 215, the landmark ballot measure that legalized cannabis for therapeutic purposes. It’s been an ugly, fractious battle ever since. The federal government, working in tandem with state and local law-enforcement officials, responded to the medical-marijuana groundswell by deploying quasi-military units against U.S. citizens, trashing homes, ripping up gardens, shutting down cannabis clubs, seizing property, threatening doctors, and prosecuting suppliers.

Despite aggressive government opposition, the legalization of medical marijuana in California and more than a dozen other states set the stage for a burgeoning multibillion-dollar industry. Over 1 million people in the United States are certified medical marijuana patients. Some are deathly ill; many others smoke pot for the same reason that tens of millions of Americans take Big Pharma meds to ease anxiety, poor sleep, mild to moderate depression, and attention-deficit issues. What’s most striking about the grassroots medical marijuana experiment in America is that thus far no deaths and no pattern of health problems are attributable to the use of the herb. Contrary to dire warnings from the drug war establishment, the sky has not fallen.

What will happen now that Colorado and Washington have made history by legalizing pot for adult use? How will U.S. officials respond? If this laboratory experiment in democracy proceeds apace, it could trigger a chain reaction among states leading to the end of marijuana prohibition. Will the federal government relax its stance and defer to the will of the people? Whatever happens next, this much is certain: marijuana is here to stay.

Harry J. Anslinger


The campaign against marijuana 1930–1937

Restrictions for cannabis as a drug, often called Indian Hemp in documents before the 1940s, started in local laws in New York already in 1860 and was followed by local laws in many other states and by state laws in the 1910s and 1920s.[5] The early laws against the cannabis drugs were often passed with little public attention. Concern about marijuana was related primarily to the fear that hashish or marijuana use would spread as a substitute for the opiates. In 1925 United States supported regulation of Indian hemp, Cannabis for use as a drug, in the International Opium Convention.[6] Recommendations from the International Opium Convention inspired the work with the Uniform State Narcotic Act between 1925 and 1932. Harry J. Anslinger became an active person in this process from about 1930.[7][8]
Harry J. Anslinger in Washington, 1934

Anslinger received, as head of The Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) (from his point of view), an alarming increase of reports about smoking of marijuana in 1936 that continued to spread at an accelerated pace in 1937. Before, smoking of marijuana had been relatively slight and confined to the Southwest, particularly along the Mexican border. The Bureau launched two important steps. First, the Bureau prepared a legislative plan to seek from Congress a new law that would place marijuana and its distribution directly under federal control. Second, Anslinger ran a campaign against marijuana on radio and at major forums.[9][10]

Some of his critics allege that Anslinger and the campaign against marijuana had a hidden agenda, DuPont petrochemical interests and William Randolph Hearst together created the highly sensational anti-marijuana campaign to eliminate hemp as an industrial competitor.
Indeed, Anslinger did not himself consider marijuana a serious threat to American society until in the fourth year of his tenure (1934), at which point an anti-marijuana campaign, aimed at alarming the public, became his primary focus as part of the government's broader push to outlaw all drugs.[11] Members of the League of Nations had already implemented restrictions for marijuana in the beginning of the 1930s and restrictions started in many states in U.S years before Anslinger was appointed. Both president Franklin D. Roosevelt and his Attorney General publicly supported this development in 1935.[11][12]

Around 1931 advertising started for hemp as the new billion dollar crop because of a decorticator working miracles on the hemp crop and taking the amount of time to harvest an acre of hemp down to 1–1.5 hours when 2 hours was the best time they could get harvesting cotton. But this could not change the fact that is it is only the outer part of a hemp stem, about 25% of the stem, that contains long usable fibers. New technology has not created growing billion dollar industries in countries where it is legal to harvest hemp.[13][14] See also Hemp#Paper.

By using the mass media as his forum (receiving much support from William Randolph Hearst), Anslinger propelled the anti-marijuana sentiment from the state level to a national movement. Writing for The American Magazine, the best examples were contained in his "Gore File", a collection of quotes from police reports, by later opponents described as police-blotter-type narratives of heinous cases, most with no substantiation, linking graphically depicted offenses with the drug. Anslinger sometimes used the very brief and concise language in many police reports when he wrote about drug crimes:

"An entire family was murdered by a youthful addict in Florida. When officers arrived at the home, they found the youth staggering about in a human slaughterhouse. With an axe he had killed his father, mother, two brothers, and a sister. He seemed to be in a daze… He had no recollection of having committed the multiple crime. The officers knew him ordinarily as a sane, rather quiet young man; now he was pitifully crazed. They sought the reason. The boy said that he had been in the habit of smoking something which youthful friends called “muggles,” a childish name for marijuana."[15]

“By the tons it is coming into this country — the deadly, dreadful poison that racks and tears not only the body, but the very heart and soul of every human being who once becomes a slave to it in any of its cruel and devastating forms…. Marihuana is a short cut to the insane asylum. Smoke marihuana cigarettes for a month and what was once your brain will be nothing but a storehouse of horrid specters. Hasheesh makes a murderer who kills for the love of killing out of the mildest mannered man who ever laughed at the idea that any habit could ever get him….”

Anslinger has been accused to be responsible for racial themes in articles against marijuana in the 1930s.

"There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others."


"Colored students at the Univ. of Minn. partying with (white) female students, smoking [marijuana] and getting their sympathy with stories of racial persecution. Result: pregnancy"[16][17]

"Two Negros took a girl fourteen years old and kept her for two days under the influence of hemp. Upon recovery she was found to be suffering from syphilis."[17][18]

"The first Federal law-enforcement administrator to recognize the signs of a national criminal syndication and sound the alarm was Harry J. Anslinger, Commissioner of the Bureau of Narcotics in the Treasury" (Ronald Reagan 1986)[19]

When Anslinger was interviewed in 1954 about drug abuse (see below), he did not mention anything about race or sex. In his book The Protectors (1964) Anslinger has a chapter called "Jazz and Junk Don't Mix" about the black jazz musicians Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker, who both died after years of heavy drug abuse:

"Jazz entertainers are neither fish nor fowl. They do not get the million-dollar protection Hollywood and Broadway can afford for their stars who have become addicted – and there are many more than will ever be revealed. Perhaps this is because jazz, once considered a decadent kind of music, has only token respectability. Jazz grew up next door to crime, so to speak. Clubs of dubious reputation were, for a long time, the only places where it could be heard. But the times bring changes, and as Billy Holiday was a victim of time and change, so too was Charlie Parker, a man whose music, like Billie's, is still widely imitated. Most musicians credit Parker among others as spearheading what is called modern jazz." (p. 157)

Anslinger hoped to orchestrate a nationwide dragnet of jazz musicians and kept a file called 'Marijuana and Musicians'

lol it was the ptards fault all along smdh...
