    What is THC? A History Part 4

    The actual campaign against Marijuana in the 1930’s, what was said?

    Using the media made available by William Randolph Hearst, Harry J Anslinger sent out misleading statistics and pieces of information stating that the use of Marijuana could easily cause extreme cases of violence. His main tool was to link the use of Cannabis to heinous crimes, using graphic language to depict violent offenses, most with no proof at all. He often would use police type language found in police reports to describe the acts and scene in which these cases took place. Some extreme examples of his exaggerations include the story of how an entire family was murdered by a young Marijuana addict in Florida. He had killed his father, mother, and three siblings with an axe and was found by police wandering around the slaughterhouse in a daze and obviously crazed. When he sobered up he had no recollection of the events, but did admit to regular usage of marijuana causing him to become crazed and violent towards his family.

    A direct quote from one of his articles about Marijuana and it’s effects is:

    “By the tons it is coming into this country – the deadly, dreadful poison that racks and tears not only the body, but the very heart and soul of every human being who once becomes a slave to it in any of its cruel and devastating forms… [Hash] makes a murderer who kills for the love of killing out of the mildest mannered man who ever laughed at the idea that any habit could ever get him”
