In her first few pages, Sadie Lane focuses a spotlight on the conspiracy between Hearst, Dupont and Mellon to get the harmless plant hemp (scientific name cannabis) banned in order to support the specific financial goals of their own industries - paper products and plastics, which they perceived to be threatened. Through the propaganda machine provided by the Hearst publishing empire, it was easy to bamboozle the public into believing that a plant which had never been demonstrated to have any addictive or harmful effects was "the Devil's Weed".
Lane's book is a journalistic effort making use of numerous currently available resources. It should serve not only as an excellent documentation of the steps leading up to the passage of Colorado's legalization of cannabis for medical and recreational use, but also of the extremism of the agencies that are fighting to preserve its illegal status for their own profit-mongering or power-brokering ends. It needs to be in the hands of every single person who has suffered from the farce of marijuana prohibition in any way whatsoever - and that happens to be almost everyone except the handful who have become rich through clandestine trafficking.
