"Relatively few adverse clinical effects from the chronic use of marijuana have been documented in humans. However, the criminalization of marijuana use may itself be a health hazard, since it may expose the users to violence and criminal activity."
-- The Kaiser Permanente study "Marijuana Use and Mortality"
April 1997 American Journal of Public Health

"In every country and in every age,
the priest has been hostile to liberty.
He is always in alliance with the despot,
abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own."

-- Thomas Jefferson, - 1814

1936: DuPont obtains a patent license to manufacture synthetic "plastic fibers" from German industrial giant I.G. Farben Corporation. The patent license is obtained as part Germany's reparation payments to the United States after World War I. A few years later, I.G. Farben manufactures deadly Zyklon-B gas, used in Nazi death camps to murder millions of Jews (along with many homosexuals and drug users). DuPont owned and financed approximately 30% of Hitler's I.G. Corps, the military-industrial backbone of the fascist Third Reich.

"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."
-- Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering, Nazi Air Force (Luftwaffe) commander, the Nuremberg Trials

"Terrorist operatives infiltrate our communities, plotting, planning and waiting to kill again....To those who scare peace loving people with phantoms of lost liberty, my message is this: your tactics only aid terrorists."
-- United States xAttorney General John Ashcroft

Nazism or Drug Cops

Blaming social problems on a cultural, racial, or behaviorial group.

Selling the public on the idea that all members of the targeted group are 'bad' people.

'Facts', which cannot be verified, and pseudo scientific studies are used as propaganda against the targeted group. History is rewritten.

"These people have no right to have their viewpoiunt aired." and " Anyone who disagrees or questions us must be one of them!"

Characterizing all members of a targeted group as subhuman and typically capable of monstrous deeds and/or crimes.

"They corrupt, seduce and or destroy our children."

"We must give up some of our freedoms, liberties, and rights in order to combat this menace to society."

Marihuana Tax Act violated his privilege against self-incrimination

Laws criminalize members of targeted group and they may be denied jobs, the right to own property and/or be restricted as to where they may live or go.


Citizens are urged to 'turn in' friends, neighbors, co- workers and family members.

The Joseph McNamara Collection
Non-uniformed police squads set up to wage war on targeted groups utilizing deception, infiltration, espionage and entrapment.

Property and assets are seized from people who are members of targeted group. Property may be divided between the informer and the state.

Prisons, rehabilitation camps,'hospitals', executions and genocide...
("kill them all" "Zero Tolerance")

"Arbitrary and capricious" is legal language that was used by DEA Administrative Law Judge Francis Young in 1988 to conclude that DEA was obligated under the Controlled Substances Act to reschedule marijuana as a prescription medicine. DEA Chief Administrator Robert Bonner proceeded to arbitrarily and capriciously disregard Judge Young's well researched and reasoned decision, which the Act allowed him to do.

Drugwar Lies Linked to Schizophrenia

"All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those towards whom it is directed will understand it. Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda must be lower the larger the number of people who are to be influenced by it."

"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.

From Benito Mussolini
contributing to the "London Sunday Express," December 8, 1935

Who Rules America? by James Petras

Ruling Elites page

"A tiny portion of the population controls the lion's share of the wealth and most of the command positions of state, manufacturing, banking, investment, publishing, higher education, philanthropy, and media... these individuals exercise a preponderant influence over what is passed off as public information and democratic discourse.

The ruling class is the politically active component of the owning class, the top captains of finance and policy who set the standards for investment and concentration of capital at home and abroad...

Their overall economic domination and their campaign contributions, media monopoly, high-paid lobbyists, and public relations experts regularly predetermine who will be treated as major political candidates and which policy parameters will prevail... Though relatively few in number they get the most of what there is to get. Their wealth serves their power, and their power serves their wealth."
Michael Parenti

Blackshirts and Reds - Jun-Jul 97 preface

Italian fascism and German Nazism had their admirers within the U.S. business community and the corporate owned press. Bankers, publishers, and industrialists, including the likes of Henry Ford, traveled to Rome and Berlin to pay homage, receive medals, and strike profitable deals. Many did their utmost to advance the Nazi war effort, sharing military industrial secrets and engaging in secret transactions with the Nazi government, even after the United States entered the war. During the 1920s and early 1930s, major publications like Fortune, the Wall Street Journal, Saturday Evening Post, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and Christian Science Monitor hailed Mussolini as the man who rescued Italy from anarchy and radicalism.

Drug Legalization 1970

As nightfall does not come at once,
neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight
where everything remains seemingly unchanged,
and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air,
however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.

-- Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas

Cannabis and Censorship

The Wrecking Crew, on How Conservatives Rule
Democracy Now Interview: Thomas Frank
“Fantastic misgovernment of the kind we have seen is not an accident, nor is it the work of a few bad individuals. It is the consequence of triumph by a particular philosophy of government, by a movement that understands the liberal state as a perversion and considers the market the ideal nexus of human society. This movement is friendly to industry not just by force of campaign contributions but by conviction.”

The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule By Thomas Frank
NPR Excerpt: Hardcover, 384 pages Metropolitan Books

"Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
-- Frederick Douglass, August 4, 1857


What's the Matter with Kansas? by Thomas Frank
How Conservatives Won the Heart of America

They’re just being used – once the nation’s pioneering progressive populists – now are the epicenter of right-wing Republican reactionaries. Kansans in their quest for moral values are basically being used to advance the cause of corporate power.

The Authoritarians (HTML version)

"By far the most numerous and most flagrant violations of personal liberty and individual rights are performed by governments ... The major crimes throughout history, the ones executed on the largest scale, have been committed not by individuals or bands of individuals but by governments, as a deliberate policy of those governments ...that is, by the official representatives of governments, acting in their official capacity."
--John Hospers
