In my interest in cannabis and the Drug War against it, I have read in many places the hypocrisy of the 1937 hearings that really started all this Drug War foolishness. This short book relays the dialogue straight out of the recorded testimony of that time. It's very interesting to read what was actually said. If this were a modern day hearing many of these people would be laughed out of the room. In between the dialogues there is an added "Narrator." He (Fred Gardener) provides comedy relief in his juxtaposition of many of the outlandish things said about marijuana with modern day facts.

I've read Bonnie and Whitebread's book, The Marihuana Conviction (1974 University of Virginia Press), years ago and saw how the reefer madness about "marijuana" was pushed to get the Marihuana Tax Act passed in 1937. Fred Gardner puts this in perspective as you read this entertaining story about the real life characters who played a role in prohibiting this popular age-old medicine. Get it now - the price is right and history is important to understand how some things come about.

Thanks to Fred Gardner for very effectively showing just how deficient was the legal process and the reasoning behind cannabis prohibition in the United States.

Brilliant examination of the history of marijuana and the attitudes of politicians from the 1930s. A must read even in the 21st century.
