"The simple truth about America's marijuana prohibition: any law that allows the easy incarceration of any citizen any time those in power want to do it is the ultimate enemy of democracy. With 800,000 annual arrests over an herb used by tens of millions of Americans, it is the cornerstone of a police state." - Harvey Wasserman
The marijuana laws as they stand today, continue to serve the interests of racism because an inordinately large number of minorities are incarcerated for possession of marijuana. The legalization of marijuana continues to be influenced by corporate greed because the number of excellent products that can be produced from marijuana has only increased since the days of Henry Ford's cannabis car bodies. Therefore such products and materials must be kept off the market to prevent competition which would threaten special interests. And then there are politicians with corporate prison lobbyist friends who want to keep the marijuana laws in place with stiff prison sentences. After all there are tens of millions of marijuana offenders who are just ordinary people, which makes them ideal and plentiful prison inmates in the corporate prison system.
