    Not many people are aware that the entire reason Hemp was outlawed in the beginning was because of the industrial applications which threatened interests like Dupont and Standard Oil. The word “Marijuana” was made up by Harry Jacob Anslinger and his team who held office as the assistant prohibition
    commissioner in the Bureau of Prohibition, before being appointed as the
    first commissioner of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of
    Narcotics on August 12, 1930. The logic behind the creation of this new word was to paint a new picture of a very old plant that everybody knew about already, with a deceptive and racist brush that was sure to turn public opinion in the interest of the corporations that stood to profit from it’s prohibition, much like what still goes on today.

    The prohibition of pot had nothing to do with concern for public health, and never has. It has been about corporate domination over society for profits, at the expense of every victim of the federal government’s illegal and unjust war against it’s own population, and the expense of the environment which has been so brutally degraded as a result of the phasing out of industrial hemp in favor of deforestation for paper and petroleum based synthetics.

    Anslinger and his team used racism and fear mongering to turn the population against a plant that had lived in harmony with humans for millions of years, until it threatened the business interests of a few oligarchs.

    Some Anslinger quotes;

    “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 use. This
    marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes,
    entertainers, and any others.”

    “…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.”

    “Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.”

    “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”

    “Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing”

    “You smoke a joint and you’re likely to kill your brother.”

    “Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.”

    It’s a shameful history of abuse and deception, but truth may prevail….
