Nixon and Cannabis sprinkled with a little racism equals Class 1 controlled substance for a plant
You know sometimes it is absolutely insane if you know the history of our laws. The laws we follow today have a bit of a strange beginning at times. You see Nixon made Cannabis a Class I Drug. I would naturally assume that it had something to do with how dangerous this “plant” is. Well that is not it. Basically Nixon might have been slightly racist! Lets did a bit deeper.
If you agree with the laws that make Cannabis illegal you can thank President Nixon, the DEA & US Prison Industry for Classifying Cannabis as a Schedule I Drug. The year of 1970 Nixon placed cannabis as a Class 1 drug. This placement was only meant to be temporary while he begin to have it studied. Class 1 is a classification for the most dangerous controlled substance. THE MOST DANGEROUS! Not quite. Cannabis has not always been illegal. It has been around for centuries. It’s been used to treat many ailments and most commonly used as an anti-inflammatory. Chinese Emperor Fu Hsi once recommended marijuana as medicine. The Hebrews once wrote of it as a ‘holy anointing oil.’ The Egyptians used it as an anti-inflammatory agent; the Indians, an anesthetic. Of course after the effects of the cannabis plant was tested it was suggested in 1972 by the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse, that cannabis prohibition end, which would remove it from Schedule I. President Nixon knew what the evidence showed BUT he refused to remove it as a Class 1 controlled substance even though his very own appointed commission said otherwise. Cannabis is still today in the same classification as heroine and cocaine. Now if you are like me you are wondering why in the world if he knew that the evidence showed this plant to be beneficial why would he not release it for the public to utilize. Well the answer is…………… Nixon’s war on drugs targeted the hippies and the blacks. So today in 2018 we are still following a law that literally makes a plant a Class 1 controlled substance. There you go, now you know. While Marijuana is still today a class 1, CDB which comes from the Hemp plant is not. The reason being is it contains less than .3% THC.
