    my research was done in haste and enthusiasm i am guilty of comparing and triangulating Lincolns quote, also researching hohner harmonicas on their website. it is crazy to me that this lie is all over the internet!
    but i hope that you would agree and appreciate that we all just want the truth here, i really despise when there are anti prohibition lies that stoop as low as lies that most conservatives spew and want nothing more but to dictate society and regulate everything we do.
    why should we ever have to second guess ourselves? we should all be educating each other with facts! not making ourselves look like fools by making up stories about our history so that other activist can also misinform others
    and make us look foolish.
    the truth on every level especially quoting history should be what sets us apart and sets us free from prohibition!
    so once again i apologize and i am deeply embarrassed.

    The Hohner harmonica was indeed invented when you said, howerver it was not imported into the US untill the 1860s after Lincoln’s death.

    The Hohner musium says they never had a letter from Lincoln displayed.
    You would think that they would have such a letter since it would have come from an American president and a search of the Hohner Musium website did not come up with anything.

    This Lincoln weed hohner thing is not proven as far as I can see.
    So you cannot stat it as a fact.

    As far as I can find there is no evedience that the letter was ever written or that Hohner ever had it.

    So where did you get your facts.

    Following from NORML website answer to the quote fron Russ Bellvile

    [Russ responds: Love the enthusiasm, but one small correction. The Lincoln prohibition quote is a hoax. According to California NORML’s Dale Gieringer: “I’ve been told that according to the Home Book of Quotations (16th edition), it was fabricated in the 1880s – apparently by anti-Prohibitionists in Atlanta courting the Negro vote. Lincoln was well-known for his temperance sympathies. According to Herbert Asbury’s “The Great Illusion,” he authored a dry law modeled on the Maine law, which was rejected by Illinois voters in a special referendum on June 4, 1855. He was also alleged to have authored and signed a total abstinence pledge in 1846. According to temperance authorities, Lincoln was reluctant to sign the 1862 whiskey tax that helped fund the Civil War, on grounds it would condone the liquor trade. According to a temperance leader who spoke with him on the day of his assassination, Lincoln predicted that the next great question after slavery would be abolition of the traffic in legalized liquor.”

    “Two of my favorite things are sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe of sweet hemp, and playing my Hohner harmonica.” – Abraham Lincoln

    The Einstein quote was about prohibition as enacted by congress, it did not specifically apply to cannabis. Many of these quotes are out of context and therefore considerably lower the impact of the presentation.

    this is a lie man. this was a letter that was written to hohner in Germany from Lincoln. i shouldn’t have to do research for you. before you falsely accuse fiction you need to do research.
    BTW hohner began making harmonicas in 1857

    The Lincoln quote is not true.

    He never said it.

    The honer harmonica was not even envented at the time.

    This explains it;

    “”Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country.”
    -Thomas Jefferson

    Now they have no wealth at all and can’t protect shit. All because they had a bizarre obsession with destroying the most useful plant known to man. Why? Because they are flat out evil. What other explanation is there? Why do you think America’s middle name is “Great-Satan”? Because of people like Nixon and all those who let his self serving anti-Cannabis laws stay on the books for all this time? In other words, every politician in office now or since Nixon’s impeachment, including Obama, AKA; the quasi-black Richie Rich.

    It just shows the absurdities that we as humans have to live under as numbers on a page of world authority and power. The words “with Freedom and liberty for all” might as well be removed from the U. S. constitution.
