Noam Chomsky talks about Marijuana
July 27, 2008
IF you want an interesting historical breakdown of why marijuana is illegal this is a great piece of audio. Chomsky explains that it has nothing to do with the herb’s effects or danger but really was made illegal so the police could go after, harass and basically outlaw citizens or groups of people they didn’t like. For example in England at one point Gin was outlawed but not whiskey, poor people drank gin…
Marijuana prohibition was created just to target an ethnic group, it’s roots are extremely racist and have nothing to do with science or medicine, everyone thats ever wondered why the useful mj plant is illegal should check this out!
