Many don’t know that the reason Marijuana is now illegal is largely thanks to the efforts of deceased publisher, William Hearst. When the Spanish American War erupted in 1898, the pot-smoking army of Pancho Villa seized 800,000 acres of prime Mexican timberland belonging to newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. The lumber from this land was used to manufacture newsprint for Hearst’s publishing empire. In retaliation, Hearst began a 30-year propaganda campaign denouncing the use of marijuana and depicting negative portrayals of pot smokers.
Through a relentless campaign of lies, Hearst almost single-handedly brought the US at arms against marijuana. Hearst papers began publishing headlines such as “Marihuana Makes Fiends of Boys in 30 Days” and “Hasheesh Goads Users to Blood”. In addition, he ran articles about marijuana-crazed negroes raping white women and playing voodoo-satanic jazz music.
As a result of his efforts, the federal government outlawed cannabis in 1936. I think it’s ‘high’ time the truth be told that the reason marijuana is now illegal is due to one greedy old white man’s desire to accumulate more wealth by usurping his power to deceive the American people (shocker).
