Why Is Weed Illegal? Prohibition History Part I

Aired on: 2012.06.25

! Why is Marijuana illegal? What is the history of pot prohibition? When did it start? Who took it from legal to illegal? Lots of people don't bother asking these questions because they assume that the story isn't interesting... but it is! And when you understand the history of a law you can understand whether that law is just or unjust. Today on Lex's World I go over the first part of Cannabis Prohibition history; William Randolph Hearst and his attack on Hemp or "Marijuana" as he preferred to call it, as well as his surprising motives regarding timber real estate. Tune in for part II when I go over Harry Anslinger and how he contributed to prohibition.
