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.

It's not any worse than alcohol and it's actually been proven to have legitimate medicinal value.

For those of you who say ppl can't work on pot.. Bs bc I have and I can NO I am not lazy on the job. Nor do I have memory problems. You say weed shouldn't be legal, but what about the "legal" stuff your precious gov hands out. K-12 those bath salts, weed is the last thing you guys need to worry about. Did you know your so precious government, only banned the bath salts they made legal for two years... And you got ppl eating ppl on that shit, but you so wonderful gov that cares so much about you. Didn't destroy a product they created just like every other drug meth, coke, crack, lsd etc. They didn't make MJ God did. The government isn't shit don't care about you.... Legalize MARY JANE

reserve our fragile financial resources by excluding prosecution of victimless crimes; it is an individual's decision to use marijuana, not society's

For the meditional purposes I had never smoked weed in my life but I do know sombody who got there life saved by it. She was about to kill herself and right before she did she smoked for the first time and it opened her eyes and showed her that life is a beautiful disaster. To this day she dosnt smoke and gets drug tests and passes all but that one hit saved her . That's why I think it should be legal , without it I would have lost my best friend

While I didn't say it, mainly because this thread is about dope, I agree no one should operate machines while drinking either.
There is a difference one is legal but isn't controlled enough, the other is totally illegal as it should be.
Pot leads to other drugs. I occasionally have a drink at home and I have not used drugs, Most who smoke crack and sniff coke and drop acid and shoot heroin etc. started by smoking pot.
Go ahead and tell me how many people who shoot up coke or herion started with it and never smoked pot. Well smarty pants give me some figures.

In a new poll taken a few days ago 47 percent of men and 30 percent of women in America admitted to trying marijuana. That means that, according to your prohibitionist gateway hoax, 47 percent of men and 30 percent of women in America are full blown heroin addicts.
