WRONG and you probably need to do some further research instead of making judgments of your own beliefs... try experimenting first with "reefer"

    That the most racist anyone can say. I suppose that you feel that you are a man of high standards,but you should be past race. As a matter of fact you are the most racist dumb bastard ever. You should think before you say something like that. African Americans are as good as anybody. Carcasions do drugs to . You disgust me.

    Just wondering if you guys all realize that Harry J. Anslinger is dead, and has been since 1975,,,But his racist quotations are definitely how he managed to get marijuana to be illegal...just scare white society with racist scare tactics and they become putty in one's hands...unfortunately, this bullshit is still played-out to this very day!. I DO hope that Harry J. Anslinger is in hell right now, satan making him smoke endless joint after joint with black and hispanic folks....poetic justice!!!.

    The laws against cannabis were based on racism against Negroes & Hispanics by a hysterical old white dude. Prohibition had ended against alcohol & therefore another "cause " was needed to keep the human herd whipped up into a fever. Research the newspapers of the 1934s, the paper headlines are actually screaming out racism & backed by churches! Weed was never a problem until is became illegal & could be used to throw blacks, Hispanics & other "undesirables" into prison. I am surprised that the NAACP & ACLU & Latin groups haven't fought this in court on the grounds of racism. But meanwhile bigamy is illegal & yet is exposed on TV, illegal aliens enter this country & have rights!! As long as illegal aliens have the rights to my rights i.e. free medical care, SSI, jobs etc. I should have the damn right to smoke what the hell I want in my own house!!! I have NO arrest records or any run with the law! But I'm white & I'll say it. The law is illegal, pot doesn't hurt anybody. Google & read about NYC mayor La Guardia (Little Flower) 1937 Report on Marijuana, his report proved it was harmless. There needs to be a tremendous grassroots movement to overturn this illegal law!! It would sure turn this economy around . Speaking as a bartender I can say pot smokers are a lot less trouble than a bunch of drunks & less dangerous on the road. People stand up for your rights!

    blacks and mexicans had to ruin it for everybody. why couldn't they have just smoked powerbills so it would be illegal to get one of those every month.

    Heaven or Hell, I hope Anslinger is having a miserable afterlife. Jesus would have been black or brown...how does he feel about Anslinger's views? Also, God told Moses to use marijuana oil in the recipie for the sacred annointing oil. Fucking Anslinger. How's it feel to have the memory of your life spat on by millions?

    What a great example of 'limited thinking' to use in support of legalization of a natural weed. Just think about that for a moment, the US Government (in the 30's) found it necessary to classify a ORGANIC PLANT (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plant) a threat to the social existence and OUTLAWED 'it'. Really, I mean REALLY? Saddam Hussin was 'an Outlaw' as was Osama Bin Ladin, Billy the Kid & Jesse James and in 80 years no one has bothered to ask why is a PLANT holds the same 'label' as HUMAN BEINGS in the Department of "Homeland Security"? Bottom-line: "WTF?" (Where's The Fokus?) on all the good we can create or something else? -F4T

    So why is "reefer" still illegal? because of a law based on this douchebag's racist opinion? I believe it's time for everyone to wake up and change the archaic laws concerning marijuana prohibition..

    That's right asswipe fault the "nigras" for wanting better in life. If it was up to you the "darkies" would still be in slums and illiterate! Thank God the "nigras" stood up for themselves and proved your redneck ass wrong. I know a lot of "darkies" who smoke "the reefers" as my grandmother called it and they don't want to be Caucasian.

    He was a scumbag that was paid to spread lies and propaganda !!!. Just like today, many people in the government's employ are actually being paid to spread lies and propaganda about global warming and climate change, as a means or false justification of taking away people's money, rights, and resources.

    If risky legal activities such as smoking tobacco or drinking alcohol do more or equal harm compared to cannabis, it should be concluded that the laws are inconsistent. And when there is inconsistency, there's hidden motives. Maybe it's not racism so much today. But there are others.
