[That Other] Prohibition Was Repealed 80 Years Ago Today

  • by Sabrina Fendrick, Director of Women's Outreach December 5, 2013

    On December 5th 1933 at exactly 5:32pm eastern standard time, Utah signed on as the last of the 36 states needed to ratify the 21st amendment, repealing the nation’s failed 13-year prohibition policy experiment banning the sale and use of alcohol nationwide.  At 6:55 p.m., President Roosevelt signed an official proclamation announcing the nation’s new alcohol policy.

    It was clear to the public, and politicians of the day that alcohol prohibition had failed in everything it was trying to achieve.  The 18th amendment led to widespread disrespect for the law, black market violence, serious loss of tax revenue, and a drain on police resources.

    Here we are again, eighty years later fighting another, equally damaging policy of marijuana prohibition.  Unlike the short lived 18th amendment however, our nation’s punitive and disastrous marijuana laws have been in effect for more than 75 years.  The longevity of this current prohibition has resulted in exponentially more damage to our society than that caused by the alcohol laws of the 1920’s and early 30’s.  Today’s laws have ruined millions of lives and wasted hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars.  It has fueled the black market, contributes to the erosion of civil liberties and continues to line the pockets of criminals and cartels.

    Eighty years ago today, our President and 36 states came to the same conclusion: That making something a majority of people perceive as harmless and fun illegal will not make it go away, or solve any problems perceived to be associated with its use.  It is about managing public safety by containing the market and managing the user experience.  The majority of alcohol drinkers and marijuana users are responsible people who consume in moderation.  It is time for our lawmakers to recognize what their predecessors did so many years ago, legalization and regulation is the only sensible solution.  Colorado and Washington are pioneering a new policy allowing for the legal, taxable sale of marijuana to adults 21+, and it is only a matter of time before more states follow suit.  Through an environment of control, standardization and accountability, both for the individual and the industry, our nation can begin to undo the generations of damage brought on by marijuana prohibition.

    The days of marijuana prohibition are numbered and one day, marijuana will take its rightful place alongside alcohol as a legal recreational alternative.  One day, we too will be celebrating our very own day of repeal.

      Within the minds of many people hides a quiet hope. A hope that the true feeling of freedom can be achieved. Regardless of how impossible that feeling may be it is nonetheless focused upon. Cannabis reform will come but not in the form we would all like it to be in at first. If we choose our battles carefully we will go far in getting what we want. And after all isn’t it about us the people. I think so.

      “The 18th amendment led to widespread disrespect for the law, black market violence, serious loss of tax revenue, and a drain on police resources.” The consequences DO have a familiar ring to them, don’t they.

    3. Why has the marijuana prohibition has dragged out for so long?
      It seems to have started as a way to control an unwanted population during an economic depression.
      It was demonized by the media to induce public fear.
      Its been a political platform and a bureaucratic slush fund that has destroyed our constitution.
      Then marijuana was intertwined with the truly dangerous drugs and used to barter special deals in other countries as foreign policy.
      Marijuana prohibition has only helped the federal interests at the expense of the American public.
      No wonder the feds hate to see it go.

      Thanks NORML

      I want to believe that the modern day prohibition will fall soon, but I also believe the prohibitionists are going to fight tooth and nail for every mm of ground. The latest is pot giving men man boobs because it makes our hormones go off kilter……ok then.

      “Environment of control, standardization and accountability, both for the individual and the industry”–

      For the individual this means combine those features into an “environment” consisting of the utensil each individual uses to ingest herb– i.e. replace 500-mg-per-lightup H-ot B-urning O-verdose M-onoxide rolling papers with a standardized 25-mg vape toke achieved by having a screened crater not wider than 1/4″ inner diameter, and a long flexible drawtube attached at the butt end so you can see what you’re doing when you serve a vape toke.

      @Closet Smoker, just wondering, (a) in line with the above, would you consider changing your name to C. Vaper? (b) even if organic manboob enhancement doesn’t work out, you can look good in your bra just by adding the right padding.

      Any dirt on the politicians who are holding Jared Polis’s bill in committee and letting it rot there?

      Get the dirt now to make them vote for it once it moves out of committee.

      Rider?

      Maybe once the market drops after tapering on the economic stimulus money people will be hard up enough to pull there heads out of their asses to let legalization happen.

    8. Prohibition came about because of feminists putting pressure on the church and the church put pressure on the government. The Churches in America should stay out of politics and stop worrying about marijuana.

    9. Dave Evans says:

      @ somedood. Yeah, after the 70′s and 80′s I think a lot of “up and coming” mobsters decided getting shot by the FBI wasn’t really a winning strategy, so they joined the Democrats and Republicans instead.

      @Jimmy Potseed: “Marijuana prohibition has only helped the federal interests at the expense of the American public. No wonder the feds hate to see it go.”

      You’re looking at the wrong culprits. Look a little deeper. The feds are just tools. It’s the corporate capitalist interests that are fueling Prohibition and the Drug War, multi-billion dollar industries such as private prisons and drug testing companies, that are paying off our elected politicians to ignore the will of the people and keep this dangerous failure afloat. The feds are the face of the power that oppresses us, but the power behind the throne is the private corporate interests.

      Look at what is happening with the legalization effort now, like what recently happened in Maine: our elected officials are deliberately isolating the legalization question from the ballot, isolating the decision from the people, because they know they have lost our support and we will vote to legalize wherever the question comes up now. They never had a problem with legalization reaching a ballot before–because they knew it would fail, they knew they still had the majority support.

      Why would they do this? I think they are taking payouts from private corporate interests to block us this way, because at this point that is their last stand, the last battleground before they inevitably lose everything. I don’t know how long they can keep this up, how long they think their money can keep isolating this question from the public. Think about it: they never seemed to have such a problem with legalization reaching the ballots before, because they still had the majority support and knew it would tank every time, and they could use that as “proof” that they had the “correct” stance on marijuana and argumentum ad populum and all that good stuff. They could afford to allow us to vote on this issue. I really think that CO and WA surprised them immensely–because 1) they probably believed that only one state at a time would legalize and they could throw money at that state to neutralize it before it got implemented at all, much less caught on and 2) they probably believed that state would inevitably be California, and they could turn more people against it by using that as “proof” that only dangerous slacker lib’ruls support legalization, that the “land of the fruits and nuts” legalized because that is the only sort of person who supports the cause, and further strengthen their lucrative lie-factory. I think the fact that two states legalized at once–thus splitting their funds to the point of powerlessness–and the fact that neither state was California took them by surprise and completely destroyed their long game for keeping their dishonest money train going, perhaps forever. Now…keeping us from ever being allowed to vote on this issue ever again is their last hope.

      Oh, DEA, whore of corporate America, I look forward to the day you are completely destroyed, your remains burned to ash, and the ground on which you stood salted so that you can never oppress the innocent ever again. I look forward to dancing on your grave. And I take immense pleasure in the fact that you and I both know that all your efforts are ultimately futile, and you know that your time is coming to an inevitable end.

      @Closet Smoker: That is hilarious. That is on the level of “masturbation will make you grow hairy palms” myth. And like the hairy palms myth, this too was concocted in a desperate attempt to control something that can’t be controlled.

      @Somedood: That is funny, and true, it’s funny because it’s true. :) Did i not hear of some DEA activities that seem to run contrary to their purported purpose? Too bad we can’t spread this and raise awareness of the illegal and counter-productive behavior of the DEA, and maybe eliminate some of the uninformed wide-eyed trust the average rube gives to them.

    12. Natural Human says:

      Prohibition to me is an infringement on our inalienable right to a freedom of choice. Now cannabis has become a symbol of that choice. Cannabis has become a symbol for the right to choose. To make a personal choice about anything that affects our own personal lives either if it’s right or wrong. There becomes a trade off of choice if you want what is offered in civilization. In civilization justice needs to be served for a bad mistake or wrong doing. But there is no justice served if justice becomes the tool of a master’s control. When justice is used as a lever of exploitation of the masses, then we cease being individuals in society and become assets to the people that control us for their own selfish needs. We must demand retribution if we desire a free existence from parasitic masters that live to feed off our energy. And all this fuss over the legalization of an ancient plant that knows no boarders or bounds. Stand up for you right to choose because that choice belongs to you.

    13. @Demonhype
      (Dude, Don’t stroke out. Your in need of a doobie.)
      Your Absolutely Right; But nobody can touch the corporate big boy’s. Its the politicians that were bribed into allowing this mess. Them we can touch. They sold us out. Anslinger and Heirst both got what they wanted. That set the stage for all the lies and drama that got us where we are today. The public was ignorant and scared in the days after the depression. People believed the federal government would protect the interests of the public. That turned out to be so wrong. Its because of medical science and public opinion that we are even able to say marijuana in public today. Just wait and watch these politician and law enforcement roll over when the real truth comes to light. All that’s needed now is to remove Marijuana from the schedule 1 classification. The best thing of all is that the whole world is watching this injustice. We are supposed the be the most democratic country in the world and yet we hand out prison sentences and destroy peoples lives over a weed.

      I think you’re right about politicians being paid off to shut up and keep pot illegal. No wonder we are all screwed in this country and many others. Corruption is at our door step and influences our daily lives, throwing us into prisons because of greed! I think big pharma is quite a culprit here. Keeping us on their expensive synthetic garbage that no one really knows how it effects us and costing insurance companies billions in payouts each year. Tobacco companies also have a lot to lose as well as alcohol companies too. Although it was said that Budwiser sponsored Marijuana a while back. But this could just be to make them look gook to smokers and other people who drink. I don’t know who will help us in our dire situation of lost liberty!!!!

      Well, what is with all those pasty unfit shleps down in DC? CSPAN could be dubbed, “Manboob Central”.

      “Marijuana causes manboobs” will work on the “evolution isn’t real” crowd. They doesn’t like to think in the first place, so new dumb ideas fit right in. If it (any given soundbite) sounded smart, they would reject it as “liberal brainwashing”.

    17. Voice of the Resistance says:

      Two things about prohibition; first many people during the days of alcohol prohibition in the 1920s, and even now have the mixed up idea that if you can withhold the drink from the drunk long enough he/she will sober up, and be cured. This is not the case, then or now, be it with drugs, or alcohol. Second thing corruption; policemen, and prosecutors, judges, and politicians had their noses in the bottle, and their fingers in the till. so much for rehab, I’ve done nothing wrong, and there is nothing wrong with me.

    18. Fed-Up says:

      @Demonhype:The worst thing possible is happening for” them”. being, that different generational demographics are coming together on a single issue,it’s no longer a liberal issue or a conservative one,and that makes it so much harder to corral the sheep,because you need an opposing force to cause a defensive reaction and it’s not happening.older hippies are getting together with the generation X crowd and the soccer mom’s.
      Its to late for “them” at this point.

      But there should never have been an opposition in the first place.
      Cannabis is more like a tea than anything else, with a psychedelic edge and alcohol is a central nervous system depressant(still fun and enjoyable when used with caution) However, i think protein and carbohydrates are the most powerful drugs,have you ever seen a human go on a carbohydrate withdrawal? It’s worse than heroin.

    19. Demonhype says:

      @shon williams: Yes, I saw the Ken Burns documentary too. The thing is, it wasn’t “feminists” but “suffragists” who pushed prohibition and the two are not one and the same, something that would be made quite clear with a viewing of “Not For Ourselves Alone”, another excellent Ken Burns documentary, this time about the fight for women’s suffrage. The thing is, not every suffragette wanted to be totally equal with men or to hold public office or to have a career–many if not most were average women who had internalized the basic role of women and were simply looking for a few basic protections and rights, such as the right to protection against abuse, the right to divorce in cases of abandonment or abuse, and of course the right to have a voice in public life and some say in the laws that would govern their lives. In fact, at Seneca Falls the female abolitionists starting up the suffragist/women’s rights movement were aghast at that last one, the vote, as most of them just wanted a few basic protections and felt that to elevate women to men’s level with the vote would “make the movement ridiculous”. Feminists come much later, and actually promote full equality of women, not just a vote and some basic protections to allow them to be happier housewives.

      That said, the suffragists were all down on liquor because of many of those laws that gave them no rights in the face of a husband who was abusive and/or….drunk. Many women would work whatever slave labor job for slave wages they were allowed to at the time, and their drunkard husbands could take the money for feeding the children and get drunk, and smack her around if she protested, and many women were being abused with little to no recourse in the law because of this. A man could simply abandon his family, and a woman could not move for divorce so she could perhaps marry a better man and be provided for in a world that had prohibited her from providing for herself in any meaningful way. And for some reason, many of them decided to not only blame the law that oppressed them (the real problem) but to blame alcohol itself as a major source of their woes. And to them, there were two extremes: either you are a complete and total drunkard and dangerous to yourself and others, or you devoted your life to complete and total temperance. The idea that maybe the reform of laws regarding their rights in addition to, perhaps, educating young people to be wise about alcohol consumption using facts might be a better course than just outlawing it entirely

      And, of course, I think they might have believed it could be outlawed–having never drunk alcohol themselves but having seen the transformation of their loved ones, they might have seen it as some kind of devil’s drink, something that possesses good men and if men were forcibly isolated from it, they would be forced to dry up and would end up choosing to stay sober from then on. They had no concept of how alcoholism works, or how societal expectations on people, including those on young men and men in general, actually works.

      Does any of this sound familiar?

      The difference is that near the end of that thirteen year period of prohibition, those who had touted it the most had actually switched sides (again, sound familiar?) as they were able to see their solution had actually exacerbated the problem, and they were not too proud to admit their mistake and then press to repeal Prohibition. Which puts them far ahead of our own modern Prohibitionists, who fight against facts and cling to their greedy ill-gotten profits and are far too proud to admit they screwed up.

      Hell, this Prohibition has gone on so long that most of the people who started it are DEAD! Which also puts the original Prohibitionists far ahead of the modern ones, as the very Prohibitionists who had pushed their law were the same ones who pushed to repeal it thirteen years later.

    22. Corruption is every where in this prohibition. All the dirty politics we have to deal with is only the tip of the iceberg. The DEA can openly bribe they’re way into any country and call it foreign policy. We’re talking about weapons, aircraft surveillance equipment and all the money a dictator could dream of. And have the blessing of the U.S. government on top of it. With that kind of power, the American public is meaningless.

      ARE YOU SMOKING THAT SHIT AGAIN! I’m sure everyone here has heard those words, most likely from a family member, and know the feelings that come with them. Sad thing about prohibition then, and now is that it is a self – sustaining evil. Dads not coming around to moms way of thinking. The more dad drinks, and smokes the more mom bitches. The more mom bitches the more dad drinks, and smokes. Well they’re at it again the kids head off to the neighbors to play video games and escape the loud voices. The family like our nation is dysfunctional 17 trillion dollars in debt morally and spiritually bankrupt.

      @ Demonhype,

      In regards to your lengthy comment above–very well said. A lot of venom has been spewed at the Feds on these boards, but, the real villains IMO are the corporate boys who hold the puppet strings. I don’t know why some on these boards seem so willing to give the money boys a free pass when it comes to prohibition; but I believe their complicity is obvious–from the prison industry to the alcohol and tobacco industries.

      Someone above commented that we can’t fight the corporations, only the politicians. With all due respect to that poster–bunk. You can always fight the corporate boys where it hurts most–in their pocket books, with boycotts, whistle-blowing on crooked practices, etc. Potential hits on their profit margin scares the living crap out of ‘em.

      Politicians are often afraid of transparency; corporations and lobbyists are terrified of it.

      I am posting a summary paragraph of a paper I have written for an English class. I examine the reasons for a need to federally legalize cannabis in order to fully protect patients and recreational users rights. Any comments are welcome and thank you for taking the time to read this.

      The prohibition of cannabis has roots in bigotry and intolerance, it was used as a tool to arrest and control immigrant populations starting in 1913 in California. Cannabis has been a schedule one substance since 1970 when the controlled substance act was written meaning it is recognized as having a high potential for abuse and addiction as well as no medical uses which are recognized. This is a sham and propaganda which has prevailed since the passage of this law. In 1988 judge Francis L Young the former administrative judge for the DEA ruled on the petition to reschedule cannabis stating that it should be moved to schedule two of the controlled substances act citing numerous known and accepted medical uses for cannabis and its exceptionally high level of safety citing its LD 50 as 1:20,000 compared to aspirin with an LD 50 of 1:20.
      Unfortunately the DEA chose to ignore Judge Francis’ ruling maintaining their position on cannabis. The federal government currently holds patent 6630507 titled Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. This would imply that they do recognize the use of cannabis as medicine in the treatment of oxidative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, and many others as well. The harm from cannabis is inflicted upon innocent people who choose a natural alternative to treating various ailments and those who would rather use it recreationally over other mind altering substances. People lose property to seizure laws which are abused, parental rights are taken from cannabis users when others parent while taking serious prescription opiates and drinking alcohol, and people lose jobs in states where medical as well as recreational cannabis are legal.
      The ones profiting off of the prohibition of cannabis include law enforcement, the for profit prison industry, independent drug testing labs and various other special interest groups with the money and political influence to press their agendas for profit on the representatives they help to get elected with donations for campaigns. We need to remove the influence of lobby’s and corporations from politics and hold our politicians accountable to their constituents and the supreme document of the land they swear to support and defend against all enemies, the constitution of the United States. The American people that are targeted by these laws which are nothing more than legislated morality are victims in a war on people and their basic freedom to choose what they do in their private lives. This is a costly and unjustifiable war against the American people and at their own expense.

      Follow-up on @Evening Bud’s point about boycotts and whistleblowing–

      today I saw one city bus completely dominated by advertising from a single liquor company– you know, those wide overhead posters, in this case several of them said: “Please Enjoy Responsibly.” Meanwhile a picture of a bottle was shown…

      Hold perpetrators to account: suppose a couple of kids get hold of such a bottle. If they drink “responsibly” and leave some in the bottle for tomorrow, they increase the chance of “getting caught”, scolded, “disciplined”, etc. so what will they do? Drain it quickly, overdose through fear! Multiply this by millions– fraternity parties, “smokers” where you go to flaunt grown-up gestures “responsibly” and wind up toxic drunk and inhaling “side-stream” addictive nicotine etc.

      Whistleblow your transit agency if they permit sucker advertising. Boycott any store that has a liquor or tobacco license (except their dumpster), buy food at farmers’ markets.

      This is a follow up note to the state of Arizona’s director of our medical marijuana program!
      Mr. Humble, thank you for all your hard work here in Arizona. I have to tell everyone here I was up for a job several times this past year but it was not until recently, when I believe there was more clarification put on the discrimination act for hiring or not hiring I should say medical marijuana card holders. We are making strides and Mr Humble is right up front implementing them as we go. I applied for this job, they required I pass a drug screen, but this time in the email sent to me about what to bring in for the health screen it mentioned all RX scripts including to bring in a Medical Marijuana card if I have one. WOW well that pretty much said it right there that if I test positive for THC as long as I had the medical card I should be all set. You would think so right? I sweated and sweated, everyone said don’t bring the card just stop medicating and use things to flush my system, which I tried and THEY DON”T WORK, so in the end I decided to just be honest, bring the card and just be myself. I take pride in what I do and folks that shines through every time I get an interview. They DID hire me and I have never been so thankful in all my life. So it can be done and thanks again to Mr. Humble and to all his constituents who keep trying to do the best for us as I am sure he and they were instrumental in this ground breaking advance for our states workforce. :)

      @Chris
      Congrats on the job deal. I think that a company that does the right thing should be commended for their good deeds. If possible could you tell who they are? If your situation would be better served with silence then maybe you could do something to let them know that there are people that appreciate their policies. Its obvious they already have some clue as to whats right. One day companies won’t want or be able to even ask a medical question as a condition of hire.
