William Randolph Hearst and the Criminalization of Marijuana

                                                       Sunday, September 29th, 2002

The one thing they don’t talk about anywhere (at least in government circles) is why pot is illegal in the first place.

The main reason it is illegal is because back in the 30′s William Randolph Hearst owned a lot of newspapers in San Francisco and owned the paper mills that produced the paper. Hemp (which of course is not exactly the same thing as marijuana but is commonly associated and lumped together with it, They are cousins so to speak) was competing with his paper production so he rallied his friends in power (government) and finally made it illegal in 1937. I don’t think a lot of people know this. William Randolph Hearst Was the Only man Guilty of getting the government to Prohibit the use of Hemp because it was running competition on his news paper business.

The interesting part is that when the case was originally brought before congress the prosecutor (Anslinger) claimed that it caused violence, attacks, delerium, death and was only used by poor black people (jazz musicians I believe). When the topic came back up in the 50′s the same guy (Anslinger) told congress a totally different story. Now his tale said that it should be illegal because it caused mellowness and apathy. He said the communists would try to use it against our youth in a bid to corrupt America.  What a Crock!

Hemp is the most versatile plant on this planet. In the 1930's the government required all farmers to grow hemp. It's uses for the military we endless including Heavy Rope used by the Navy on all is ships. Hemp had thousands of uses from textiles, clothing, paper (which never yellowed), fuel including diesel fuel and its one of the best nutritional plants alive just to name a few. It's been said in most political circles "If you tell a lie long enough people will start believing its the truth" We need to ELIMINATE "Politions" and elect leaders Of the people by the people and for the people.
