The History of Cannabis and How it Became Illegal

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 26th 2012 by THCFinder

For some 99% of recorded history, cannabis was perfectly legal. Then an unfortunate series of circumstances combined early in the 20th century to create a massive prohibition around the plant in The United States.

 

In the 1930’s, a lack of knowledge about cannabis joined with William Randolph Hearst and his desire to keep hemp from competing with his timer interests. This combination joined with the career aspirations of one Harry J. Anslinger, who saw what alcohol prohibition had done for the FBI and the power of J. Edgar Hoover. So Anslinger needed something to prohibit. Hearst needed hemp banned, and the general population just didn’t know any better, and for the most part, didn’t even care.

 

Now, 20+ million arrests, prosecutions and incarcerations later, we are left to endure the carnage that marijuana prohibition causes. And because of the massive amounts of money backing prohibition up, we aren’t likely to see a repeal anytime soon.

 

So many lives destroyed over a plant, just so some people can make money and have nice, cushy, powerful jobs. When will the madness end? When will adults be allowed to live their own lives?
