Anslinger immediately drew upon the themes of racism and violence to draw national attention to the problem he wanted to create. He also promoted and frequently read from “Gore Files” — wild reefer-madness-style exploitation tales of ax murderers on marijuana and sex and… Negroes. Here are some quotes that have been widely attributed to Anslinger and his Gore Files:
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.”
And he loved to pull out his own version of the “assassin” definition:
“In the year 1090, there was founded in Persia the religious and military order of the Assassins, whose history is one of cruelty, barbarity, and murder, and for good reason: the members were confirmed users of hashish, or marihuana, and it is from the Arabs’ ‘hashashin’ that we have the English word ‘assassin.'”
PART TWO: NOTE: The UNDERLINED. ALL LIES AND DECEPTIONS. Evil mind play toys, LIES AND DECEPTIONS. Marijuana in its Natural form, is in no way dangerous.
People under the influence of Marijuana do not rob banks, kill, steal, destroy, terrorize…and the likes of. The peace pipes is, WHAT it is, THE PEACE PIPE.
Always be mindful that the evil hates Peace and that which is Natural.
I am of the mind the real reason why, perhaps the true real reason Marijuana was made illegal, is because the oppressors feared that Marijuana use among Black Afrikans, would cause Black Afrikaans to Divinely unite together in Divine Harmony, Order, and Balance, as a Divine one Being.
Song: WHAT THE WORLD NEEEDS NOW, IS LOVE SWEET LOVE.
REMIX: WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS MARIJUNA IN ITS PUREST NATURAL FORM, ALL OVER THIS PLANET. THIS LOVE SWEET LOVE, HAVEN’T WORKED, IS NOT WORKING, AND PERHAPS NEVER WILL WORK, FOR IF THIS LOVE SWEET LOVE WORKS, WHY ARE WE EXPEREINCING SO MUCH EVIL. THE OPPRESSORS KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT LOVE.
Can we vision a world mind-set under the influence of Marijuana. No more Law Enforcement Officials (LEO’s), no Courts, Lawyers, Judges, Jails, Prisons, No crack, No Cocaine, not Meth, No heroin…and the likes of, No hospitals, except for broken bones, no guns/weapons unless it become necessary, because no one will be doing anything wrong. A System whose business it is to Divide and Conqueror, sucking the life energy out of people, CAN NOT HAVE A SOCIETY UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DIVINE HARMONY, ORDER, AND BALANCE. Hattie (Gone with the Wind). IT JUST AIN’T FITTIN, IT JUST AIN’T FITTIN. Divine Harmony, Order, and Balanced mind-sets, Just ain’t fittin in a Vampire Racist System, evil concepts and ideas.
Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace...
PART ONE: October 9, 2014 - By Dr. Malik Burnett and Amanda Reiman, PhD, MSW
“With so much information coming out about the medical value of marijuana, and that marijuana is not as dangerous as alcohol, why was it made illegal in the first place?”
Looking for a history lesson
That is an excellent question. Now that many politicians and the public are taking a more objective look at marijuana, many are asking about the legal history of marijuana and how it ended up in the category of drugs deemed most dangerous by the federal government (Schedule I).
To understand how we ended up here, it is important to go back to what was happening in the United States in the early 1900’s just after the Mexican Revolution. At this time we saw an influx of immigration from Mexico into states like Texas and Louisiana. Not surprising, these new Americans brought with them their native language, culture and customs. One of these customs was the use of cannabis as a medicine and relaxant.
Mexican immigrants referred to this plant as “marihuana”. While Americans were very familiar with “cannabis” because it was present in almost all tinctures and medicines available at the time, the word “marihuana” was a foreign term. So, when the media began to play on the fears that the public had about these new citizens by falsely spreading claims about the “disruptive Mexicans” with their dangerous native behaviors including marihuana use, the rest of the nation did not know that this “marihuana” was a plant they already had in their medicine cabinets.
The demonization of the cannabis plant was an extension of the demonization of the Mexican immigrants. In an effort to control and keep tabs on these new citizens, El Paso, TX borrowed a play from San Francisco’s playbook, which had outlawed opium decades earlier in an effort to control Chinese immigrants. The idea was to have an excuse to search, detain and deport Mexican immigrants.
That excuse became marijuana.
This method of controlling people by controlling their customs was quite successful, so much so that it became a national strategy for keeping certain populations under the watch and control of the government.
PART TWO:During hearings on marijuana law in the 1930’s, claims were made about marijuana’s ability to cause men of color to become violent and solicit sex from white women. This imagery became the backdrop for the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 which effectively banned its use and sales.
While the Act was ruled unconstitutional years later, it was replaced with the Controlled Substances Act in the 1970’s which established Schedules for ranking substances according to their dangerousness and potential for addiction. Cannabis was placed in the most restrictive category, Schedule I, supposedly as a place holder while then President Nixon commissioned a report to give a final recommendation.
The Schafer Commission, as it was called, declared that marijuana should not be in Schedule I and even doubted its designation as an illicit substance. However, Nixon discounted the recommendations of the commission, and marijuana remains a Schedule I substance.
In 1996, California became the first state to approve the use of marijuana for medical purposes, ending its 59 year reign as an illicit substance with no medical value. Prior to 1937, cannabis had enjoyed a 5000 year history as a therapeutic agent across many cultures. In this context, its blip as an illicit and dangerous drug was dwarfed by its role as a medicine.
Opponents of medical marijuana regulations claim that there is not enough research to warrant medicinal use, but supporters of medical marijuana point to the 5000 years of history where cannabis was widely used as evidence for its medical efficacy.
Now that 23 states, plus Washington, DC, have passed medical marijuana laws, the public is questioning the utility of keeping marijuana under lock and key, especially in light of the racist and propagandized basis for making it illegal in the first place.
In just a few weeks, Florida, Oregon, Alaska and Washington DC voters will have the opportunity to put an additional nail in the coffin of prohibition by voting to legalize medical access in Florida and adult access in Oregon, Alaska and Washington DC. Changing the marijuana laws in these states and more to come is one of the first steps in dismantling the racially motivated war on drugs.
