Hemp 102: 1911-1940 How prejudice, bigotry, misinformation and one man’s quest for power caused marijuana to become illegalPosted by ROBERT KOSSACK on
In Hemp 102, we discuss how the use of marijuana was outlawed as a means of attacking the Hispanic and black communities, how the first Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, Harry J. Anslinger, and billionaire newspaper baron and yellow journalist, William Randolph Hearst, disseminated false and prejudicial information about marijuana to successfully increase their own power and sell newspapers, and how truthful information was withheld from Congress leading to the passage of the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 which brought an end to all American research into the medical properties of cannabis.
