Summary
"This book is a frontal assault on the federal government's almost century-long campaign against marijuana in all its forms - cultivation, growing, selling, and recreational and medicinal use. Beginning with the 1930s anti-pot campaign of Harry Anslinger, the first unofficial drug czar, and continuing with only minor differences in emphasis through the Reagan, Clinton, and two Bush administrations, federal efforts to stamp out every form of marijuana use have taken many forms."--Jacket
