Mashable presents: The History of Marijuana in the U.S

This fellow forgot to mention Richard Nixon vowing to "Get Those Damn Hippies" and The Shafer Committee report. And how Nixon Lied, and Forced Congress - through political bullying - to legislate the DEA into existence: EXACTLY the Opposite of the Shafer Committee's Report's recommendations.

But he got the Anslinger/Hearst connection correct: and the fact that Racism is behind the laws. Enforcement of unjust laws is STILL at 9 to 1 of non-whites to whites arrested for drug use. The Laws are the last vestige of Jim Crow laws in the USA: and Still Obama persecutes multitudes of Black Voters in States where it is Legal on a state level to posses Marijuana.

Obama has become one of the BIGGEST suppressors of Medical Marijuana of ANY US President: and his administration continues the policy of extreme racial disparity in arrests ... and wonders why inner city violence continues to rise. He has become Part of the Problem.
