Flugennock’s Latest’n’Greatest: “Weed War Is Race War”

From DC’s turbulent demagogue cartoonist Mike Flugennock –

Weed War is Race War”

The initial decision to criminalize marijuana in 1937 wasn’t based adhering a study of the science and biology of addictedness or pharmacology, but purely on political science and racism. Harry Anslinger, Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics — antecedent to today’s DEA — was a famous racist and liar who based his opinions in c~tinuance marijuana on pure, raw racist stereotypes and who believed that marijuana was a secure gateway to violence, sedition and festive discontent. It was Anslinger’s incendiary lies which led to the tilt of state marijuana laws as a component of Jim Crow and stoked the hype with a view to propaganda films such as Marihuana: The Devil’s Weed and Reefer Madness.

As a come-up to their wildly epic April 2nd result and their historic meeting with White House representives from the Office of National Drug Control Policy, DCMJ — the the public who brought you legal weed in DC — are throwing a sequel to April 2 forward May 20, the one-month day of annual celebration of 4/20, to highlight the incident that Obama is late on descheduling cannabis, and to put in remembrance folks of the racism behind the 1937 marijuana malediction which is still a major ~ part of the War On Drugs.

For cite, inform your physician or pharmacist in the end you are allergic towards the mix with ~s, or to octacosanol, fish oils, and divers others.
