The Prohibition of cannabis
The prohibition of Cannabis is myriad of interconnecting issues. But one thing shines through more than anything else both here in the UK and the USA.
The white populations generally did not consume and more Diverse populations did. The imposition of prohibition is best highlighted by the way the USA went about it.
Harry Anslinger, the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, a predecessor to the Drug Enforcement Administration back in the 1930’s when prohibition first occurred and influenced the world position. He advocated its “effect on the degenerate races” made its prohibition a top priority.
We highlight the fact the white world was influenced by quotes like this
“There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the U.S., and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others.”
“Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”
We are just going to leave that hanging there for you to make your own choice.
But we do have to say the biggest growth in use in the USA at moment is white over 50’s as it helps with so many aches and pains of aging.
It is us that lost out from their racism
