It’s all about the money. Every time.
The most cynical thing is that Reagan claimed marijuana was the most dangerous drug in America…and wasn’t it the CIA that was trafficking crack and powder cocaine by the ton while he was President?
Government anti-drug propaganda has made fools out of a large number of Americans, prisoners out of their children, and billions of dollars for the politicians with the right connections. Meanwhile, they still claim marijuana has no medical use, while holding a key patent themselves for its medical use!
