Marijuana, “the most widely used illicit substance in the world,” was not illegal in the US until 1937, the law was debated only 90 seconds, the American Medical Association was the only one who defended the idea that marijuana was not dangerous, and the government lied about the AMA.

  1. Can I get a witness??? Man I would love to meet and talk to a witness to this. There has to be somebody out there alive that was semi close to this event that is still alive.

  2. The Documentary “Grass” from 1999 gets into this. If you read “Reefer Madness” the author gets into it at length, including pulling original documents from the time and interviewing people who were involved. (He wrote the original in ’77, I think).
