Cannabis History Part 3: Into the 1970s
Today is the last of our 3 part series on the history of cannabis.

In the 1970s, cannabis went through a monumental transition from being an accepted and almost valued agent to being vilified and mostly illegal the way it is today. So we will get into how that transition occurred, and changed the cultural view of cannabis as medicine. 

We hit on a lot of topics this episode, including more about Harry Anslinger's racist and xenophobic legacy on cannabis, the criminalization, of the plant, Nixon, and the long-lasting influences from the counter culture movement of the 60s.
