HIGHLIGHTS OF NIXON COMMENTS ON MARIJUANA:

– Marijuana compared to alcohol: marijuana consumers smoke “to get high”
while “a person drinks to have fun. Nixon also saw marijuana leading
to loss of motivation and discipline but claimed: “At least with liquor
I don’t lose motivation.”
– Marijuana and political dissent: “. . . radical demonstrators that
were here . . . two weeks ago . . . They’re all on drugs, virtually
all.”
– Jews and marijuana: “I see another thing in the news summary this
morning about it. That’s a funny thing, every one of the bastards that
are out for legalizing marijuana is Jewish. What the Christ is the
matter with the Jews, Bob, what is the matter with them? I suppose it’s
because most of them are psychiatrists . . .”
– Marijuana and the culture wars: “You see, homosexuality, dope,
immorality in general. These are the enemies of strong societies. That’s
why the Communists and the left-wingers are pushing the stuff, they’re
trying to destroy us.”
– Drug education: “”Enforce the law, you’ve got to scare them.”
