Wonder why there is so much prejudice against cannabis?
Could it have something to do with business interests?
Lucky Strike and Marlboro did not want competition from cannabis they wanted everyone to use their product.
And be hooked for life on something that damages your health and can and does kill.
It is also about controlling the population by fear of the stranger, fear of drugs and fear of crime and now by fear of terrorism.
In the USA first it was Mexicans and Chinese bringing in and smoking weed but in the 70’s it was spreading to the middle classes and had to be controlled but not by controlling the middle class but by controlling the surplus lower classes.
The lower classes had to be controlled on a larger scale and were warehoused in the prisons.
There are millions of them imprisoned in the States and used as slave labour.
(This is also the situation in England and many other countries especially China.)
This has worked quite nicely until the credit crunch where now States could go broke because of their abnormally high expenditure on their enormous prison estates.
Listen to Noam Chomsky on the subject of Marijuana and Control he is very interesting.
And read him on the subject:
It is very interesting and gives a different perspective on marijuana.
