“Play faster!” he cried, wildly, over and over. “Play faster!”
The dame who was tickling the ivories complied, out of control herself. The music revved to a dangerous velocity — oh, too fast for decent, sober, well-behaved Americans to bear — and . . . well, you just knew, violence, madness, laughter were just around the corner. The year was 1936 and, oh my God, they were high on marijuana, public enemy number one.
The scene is from Reefer Madness, arguably the dumbest movie ever made — but smugly at the emotional and ideological core of American drug policy for the last three-quarters of a century. The policy, which morphed in 1970 into an all-out “war” on drugs, has filled our prisons to bursting, created powerful criminal enterprises, launched a real war in Mexico and presided over the skyrocketing of recreational drug use in the United States. The war on drugs just may be a bigger disaster than the war on terror.

For those occupying various cities now to protest the bankers, remember that pharma IS the bankers.
“The Rockefellers and I.G. Farben worked together before World War II and during World War II. For all practical purposes, the Rockefellers and I.G. Farben were the Third Reich.”
The Bushes made their money in Nazi German and are tied closely to pharma and the Rockefellers. GW Bush had them as advisors when he pushed through “pandemic” laws in each state that are disguised martial law and would force untested (and unknown) vaccines (as well as unknown, untested drugs, chemicals and “medical” procedure) on the entire country with a mere declaration of an emergency (no proof required).
For those protesting the Tar Sands pipeline now, remember that pharma is the oil companies.
