People need to remember that marijuana prohibition was passed on the
basis of racist fictions and claims of ultra violence.

"Marijuana 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."-Federal Bureau of Narcotics director Harry J. Anslinger.

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

These stinking lies have been used against the citizens of Saipan
since joining the United States in 1986.
