    As most here know, I've long (since I first tried it in the 60s) advocated that the Idiotic Marijuana Tax Act and Nixon's Moronic & Racist War on Drugs were about the Stupidest Legislative Acts ever Created in Human History.

    That so many College Athletes were disallowed for using Cannabis, is horrifying. Here is a new Story on the Topic about how this is FINALLY changing: Marijuana and college football: Softening penalties signal an important, modern shift

    Recently, the Idiotic US Congress finally passed the use HEMP, a weed that produces 10 tons per acre in every US state (from Main to the Southern California Deserts, and from Florida to Alaska without irrigation), which frequently produces 2 crops per year, which chokes out weeds rather than the other way around, and which produces over 25,000 commercial products, is far better than Corn for Gasihol, Ole Ironsides carried over 200 tons on her, and which caused both our War of 1812 and Napolean's ill-fated invasion of Russia.

    Finally, something sensible from those Morons in Washington. (Even Idiots get something right once in a great while).

    The word "marijuana/marihuana" is actually racist.

    “Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind… Most marijuana smokers are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage.”

    “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.”
    Harry Anslinger
    Director
    Federal Bureau of Narcotics
    circa 1937

    "I now have absolute proof that smoking even one marijuana cigarette is equal in brain damage to being on Bikini Island during an H-bomb blast."
    Ronald Reagan

    Is the word ‘Marijuana’ racist?

    I would likely agree with nearly all of what you’re saying, unfortunately you lost me right out of the gate with your shopworn racist reference.....and Nixon?

    So I stopped before you could make your point with me. Maybe one day you’ll learn....as an educator you really should

    But there is evidence that a lot of the motivation for the war on drugs was racial. That info is part of the *education*.

    Well, from my POV, absent any foul play, incidents, or criminal violations we let players drink then play so why not the lesser evil Marijuana?

    This is the result of people playing the race card at every little thing. Once you really need it, the card has lost it's impact.

    I'm not sure weed really is a lesser evil. They both have their problems.
