Learn Liberty's Dr. Stephen Davies presents three weird reasons - all of them proved false over the years - to justify the War on Drugs. In the 1890s, opiates were banned to prevent respectable white girls from having sex and reproducing with men of color - considered "inferior" races. This racist argument was also used by America's first drug czar, Harry Anslinger, to prohibit cannabis in the 1930s. The second false premise was that drug trade was controlled by evil cartels - gangsters, communists, and others - who wanted to undermine the social fabric of America. The third bizarre reason was that everybody who used drugs would become lazy bums and a burden on society. Big Pharma is laughing all the way to the bank.
