100. Sure I Did
Edited on Sat Oct-27-07 09:12 PM by Beetwasher
"The paper was better quality and WAY cheaper, so they bankrolled the "reefer madness" campaign and paid lobbyists to pass legislation to outlaw "marijuana". They accomplished this through a bait and switch and a terror campaign. They purposely did NOT use the more well known name of "hemp" in order to confuse people who knew that value of that plant."

Perhaps I was not as clear as I could be, but that was the gist of what I was getting at. They used a bait and switch, scaring people with "marijuana" because they wanted to outlaw the more well known "hemp". They outlawed ALL Cannabis in order to outlaw "hemp".
