Chapter Five:                       MARIJUANA PROHIBITION       Anslinger got his marijuana law

    “Should we believe self-serving, ever-growing drug enforcement/drug treatment bureaucrats, whose pay and advancement depends on finding more and more people to arrest and ‘treat’?

    “More Americans die in just one day in prisons, penitentiaries, jails, and stockades than have ever died from marijuana throughout history. Who are they protecting? From what?”

—Fred Oerther, M.D., Portland Oregon, September, 1986.
