The Yolo County Board of Supervisors apparently has  nothing better to
do than persecute medical marijuana  users. No doubt these mighty
minds still believe the  racist lies used to outlaw marijuana to begin
with:  "Marihuana influences Negroes to look at white people  in the
eye, step on white men's shadows and look at a  white woman twice."
(Hearst newspapers nationwide,  1934)

"There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the U.S.,  and most are
Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and  entertainers. Their Satanic music,
jazz and swing,  result from marijuana use. This marijuana can cause
white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes,  entertainers and
any others."

"... the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its  effect on the
degenerate races" - Federal Bureau of  Narcotics Director Harry J.
Anslinger, 1930

"Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its  users insanity,
criminality and death."

"Marijuana is the most violence causing drug in the  history of

"[Smoking] one [marihuana] cigarette might develop a  homicidal mania,
probably to kill his brother." (see US  Government Propaganda To
Outlaw Marijuana.

Otherwise why would they pretend that marijuana is as  dangerous as
Plutonium even though cannabis has never  caused a death in 5,000
years of recorded history.
