Marijuana was not outlawed because of its affects. Marijuana was outlawed because the hemp rope created from cannabis plants is several times stronger and cheaper than twine rope, which began to dig into the wealthy farm owners' pockets that grew twine, who, in turn, funded a swift prohibition campaign against marijuana, under the propaganda that marijuana is a deadly drug and kills brain cells. You now are unable to enjoy marijuana freely because the "higher-ups" didn't want you to buy hemp rope. They told you it was bad for you, without any research, or proof. Sadly, in the early 1900's, the people blindly listened.......but, you aren't as ignorant as they were, are you?

Marijuana Quotes:

“Marihuana is responsible for the raping of white women by crazed negroes.”
—Hearst Newspapers Nationwide-1930

“Marihuana influenced negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men’s shadows, and look at a white woman twice.”
—Hearst Newspapers-1935

"After two puffs on a marijuana cigarette, I was turned into a bat."
-Marijuana Tax Act expert witness pharmacologist Dr James Munch-1937

“Marihuana is the most violent drug in the history of mankind.”
-Henry Anslinger, the father of the War on Drugs-1937

“If the hideous monster of Frankenstein came face to face with marihuana, he would drop dead of fright.”
—Anslinger, FBN, quoted in Hearst newspaper-1938

“Negro entertainers with their jazz and swing music are declared an outgrowth of marihuana use which possesses white women to tap their feet.”
—statements to Congress by Anslinger, FBN-1940

"Marijuana is more harmful than habit-forming opium, inducing fits of temporary insanity.”
—Newsweek, 1-15-45

“Marihuana leads to pacifism and Communist brainwashing.”
—Anslinger, before Congress-1948

“Marijuana use makes you sterile.”
—Reagan Administration-1985

“Marijuana leads to homosexuality, the breakdown of the immune system, and therefore to AIDS.”
-- Carlton Turner. White House Drug Czar under Ronald Reagan-1986

This is the basis of our current drug policy. If it wasn't so sad, it would be humorous.

I don't really see any reason not to legalize medicinal marijuana in TN. If nothing else look at all the jobs that will be produced as dispensaries, and growing facilities open. Our dear Greene county especially needs this stimulation to greg our pill addicted, disrespectful, and over-all run down people out of our current economic sludge that we fight endlessly to keep afloat.

We start smoking oak trees,then the Govt will make oak trees illegal and start cutting them down. It's all about the money. Legalize it,tax it,sell it, boom! Economy boost. Specially where groceries are concerned.
