Most greenies and consumers of marijuana know that the prohibition of marijuana was driven by the forestry, plastics and pharmaceutical industries with white privilege producing propaganda in a scare campaign which spread misconceptions about the plant which is registered in the USA - a patent with medical benefits since 2003.
Quoting myself from my Autobiography UGLY HEROS - The Price Of Unlawful Enforcement.
"I do not agree with the prohibition laws. The prohibition of alcohol was the making of the mafia. History will tell you the rising of industry such as plastics, timber and pharmaceuticals are contributors to the outlawing of a marijuana, a natural consumable that has not killed anyone - cures diseases including cancer (the biggest money making charitable research in
the world), depression and is patented by the USA for its medical benefits.
One of my ex's a History nut, we watch everything from docos on Earth and cars to the making of the mob, history of the war to famous serial killers and gangs. If we can take Anything from history it is that segregation and isolation creates hate and divide.
The patent the USA holds is 26 pages educating you that marijuana Has medical benefits.
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."
The picture above is me in 2004 recreationally smoking a joint at music festival the Big Day Out, Adelaide, South Australia. There to see Metallica indulging Australian music, including the first time I heard The Butterfly Effect my friend and I shared joints with the crowd and chilled to the tunes we loved - Metal, Rock mainly. We ducked our heads in checking out Jets and White Stripes sets. The festival atmosphere consuming.
I was privileged to grow up with hippy yet professional parents, as an adult I was quick to recognise Recreational marijuana consumption is not a crime. Global Legalisation is here whether you like it or not. To those who oppose Marijuana - an natural plant, prohibited by industry and white privilege. GET AROUND IT, IT IS HAPPENING.
