As we all know, the cannabis prohibition began in the US of A in 1937 with the infamous Marihuana Act that then led to cannabis prohibition by the UN in 1961. The United Nations commission that had worked on the Convention on Narcotic Drugs included the same people who were responsible for the 1920's and 30's American 'reefer madness', such as Harry Anslinger and his crew. Thus, the United States of America carries the prime responsibility for the world war on cannabis.

My opinion is, the United States, if it finally recognizes the mistakes of prohibition and legalizes marijuana, should now work as hard to undo the damage it has done around the world, as it worked hard to do said damage, and, preferably, pay as much reparations to the countries which were forced to adopt the anti-pot policies worldwide by the American-backed UN convention on drugs, as was spent on its previous enforcement, because usually the countries adopting said policies had to enforce them with their own resources, not to mention all the people who became victims of the US and the UN worldwide anti-drug craze of the 20th century.

Canada has promised to legalize it under our new government which is young and with the times. Im just hoping the PM isn't pressured into not doing something that he promised the people.
