Why was cannabis made illegal, and why are Americans only accepting it now?
This is the question that Fred Brathwaite tried to answer in the documentary about cannabis ‘Grass is Greener’. From his point of view, the reason behind the illegalization of cannabis is racism. Racism? Yes, racism, because Jazz culture belongs to African-Americans living in New Orleans. When African Americans started migrating to the northern cities, the urban population was anxious about the cannabis usage of the migrating population. They were worried that blacks from New Orleans smoking marijuana might seduce white teenagers. On Saturday nights, jazz musicians, who were mostly blacks, performed in the Jazz clubs, and white kids from Brooklyn and Queens who were fans of hip-hop music used to go there.
“Marijuana was made illegal partially because of the jazz scene. Because the jazz scene put black people and white people together, in particular black men and white women.”
So, according to Fred Brathwaite, to restrain blacks from meeting whites, cannabis was finally banned in 1937. Although psychiatrists and sociologists had experimented at that time, and they knew very well that there was nothing wrong with this weed, it remained illegal for decades. He further said that government officials then chose racial propaganda over scientific evidence.
There were severe punishments, particularly for blacks caught with very little CBD.
