Who started the War on Drugs?

Behold the infamous face of the man who single handedly convinced a nation that cannabis was a bad thing. Harry Anslinger, the commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) from 1930-1962.

Who started the War on Drugs? Harry J. Anslinger

Credited with the start of Reefer Madness, for 30 years, he invented insane, racist theories directed at cannabis and it’s users. This came at a time in American history where racial tensions, economic crisis, and war plagued the country.

We’ve come a long way, but the war on cannabis still rings true in many states. Make your voices heard!
