This is a first, a university in California, will be sponsoring a program for the study of marijuana. It will generally cover the socio economic and political domains of cannabis and production. It seem like a pretty cool program, but i think this may be the final step to the corporatization of cannabis culture. It started with reefer madness in the twenties, and through out the thirties it was even worse than cocaine. But in the forties we saw a revival of this great plant with the HEMP FOR VICTORY ACT 1943, American farmers were encouraged so far that even some could stay home from war and grow hemp instead of going off to fight. But then came the fifties and "stricter sentencing law" were enacted and possession of pot could land you up to ten year in an american prison. Thankfully the sixties came along and brought with them people like Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix. And this trend seemed to push through the seventies, but when coke came so did the cops. The eighties came and went bringing Reagan and his legislation along to Canada. The residue of "just say no" can still be felt in the over droning DARE program Canada currently employs. With the nineties came the internet and that connected people all over the world, and with that people began to see that maybe the government had been wrong about cannabis, maybe it wasn't as psychoactive as cocaine, or as doping as heroin. Now with the 2000's and all the medical magic that technology has privileged us with people are AGAIN beginning to see the potential benefits that cannabis can produce. My only fear is that cannabis shall suffer the fate that has befallen all great thing man has come to unearth, Corportization.
