Why Is Weed Illegal? Prohibition History Part II

Aired on: 2012.06.29

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 ask these questions because they assume the story is boring... but it isn't! When you understand the history of a law you can understand whether the law is just or unjust. Today on Lex's World I go over the second part of Cannabis Prohibition History; Harry J Anslinger of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (which eventually evolved into the DEA). His efforts over several years and several pieces of of legislation took the herb out of the hands of Americans using surprisingly racist tactics.
