The unhealty, puritan, stupid and perverse persecution of marijuana

Julio Bracho Carpizo

The persecution of marijuana promoted by the United States in Mexico has had the very similar effects of the “War Prohibition Act”: death and gansters. If we are to compare the war on marijuana with the much more toxic, spread and legal sale of inhalants, much more abused in Mexico than in United States, then you can make up a panorama from which to evaluate the real intentions of authorities, their subordination to the puritan or warrior northern motives and the inconsistency of their principles of public health. And viewed this as a consequence of the reduction of the social welfare state implemented by its authoritarian version.

Keywords: Prohibition Act, puritanism, marijuana, inhalants, inconsistency of authorities.
