Chapter Thirteen:                                  PREJUDICE:                   MARIJUANA AND THE JIM CROW LAWS

    Since the abolition of slavery, racism and bigotry have generally had to manifest themselves in less blatant forms in America.

    The cannabis prohibition laws illustrate again this institutional intolerance of racial minorities and show how prejudice is concealed behind rhetoric and laws which seem to have an entirely different purpose.
