Marijuana prohibition began in the early nineteen-hundreds when corporations and politicians started working together hand in hand. As early as 1911 states in the union like Massachusetts had banned marijuana making it illegal. Other states started following in suit and by the time 1937 rolled around Congress was convinced that marijuana was the devil's lettuce and a harmful substance that needed to be eradicated from the face of the planet.
They set out to make this their mission when they began the horrible and heinous time in our history referred to as marijuana prohibition with the signing of the MJ Tax Act. This was a law that went into effect based on racism and profiting over people. You can look up the MJ Tax Act of 1937 and will see that in official recorded documents one of the reasons marijuana was made illegal is because black men were using marijuana to take white women from white people. It's worded a little bit differently but says exactly this.
Ronald Reagan said that he had definitive proof that smoking one marijuana cigarette was his dangerous as being on Bikini Island during an H-Bomb Blast. This obviously was a bold-faced lie and is definitive proof of lies created by the government and corporations looking to profit off of the suffering of people. Marijuana is deadly, that is yet another lie that we have been fed with a silver spoon for decades. Marijuana is the gateway drug, that is a lie. Marijuana will make you stupid and lazy, that is a lie. Marijuana will make you kill people, that is a lie. Marijuana is a dangerous drug, that is a lie.
Marijuana is a Schedule 1 narcotic with no medicinal value, this is true according to the United States federal government and the Drug Enforcement Administration as of 2016 yet they have held the patent stating marijuana has medicinal value since 1998. You can find this information by looking up the United States federal government Medical Marijuana Patent by the US Department of Health. These are just some of the lies that they have been telling people for generations now in an attempt to eradicate this plant from the face of the earth. They have failed and their lies are being exposes which in return is paving the path for legalization around the globe.
