Acknowledge that the Racism of Harry Anslinger led to Cannabis Prohibition

If you've never heard of Harry Anslinger, Google the name and prepare to be disgusted.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of American lives are ripped apart, by a law that was inspired by quotes like "Marihuana makes the 'darkies' think they're just as good as a White Man" and "Marihuana makes Black Men look twice, at White Women".
Cannabis Prohibition is currently opposed by 70% of the American Public, and Medical Use is legal in 16 States and the District of Columbia, all while the Federal Government relies on studies that have been disproven many times over, to maintain a status quo, that is making Dealers and the Privatized Prison Industry rich, while destroying individual lives, families, and even entire communities, AND makes a mockery of the average American's claim to cherish and defend Liberty and Freedom.

It's time to put an end to 'Reefer Madness', once and for all.

    1. The people who profit from prohibition are betting that you're too lazy...

      Lazy, dumb, unmotivated, we've all heard the stereotypes. They are betting that we'll all forget about this petition before the next Phish Show, so that they can continue to rake in billions of dollars from products that hemp would compete with, by putting hundreds of thousands of us in prison to suppress it.

      Let's prove them wrong, and get this horrible, hateful law reversed. If you've shared it once, please share it again, and continue to repost it every once in a while, until we have 1,000,000 signatures~

      Thanks,

      I personally hate being lied to. I can not believe that one man had the power back in the 1930's to brainwash so many and it still be going on today. It's sickening. I wish that he could be alive when all this is turned around so that he could be charged with misconduct. Our world would be so different and in my opinion better if it were not for this man and Im not talking about 'stoner parties' Im talking about Hemp and its ability to improve the wellness of the world.
