This week, you'll write a paper that discusses the history of marijuana laws and the "war on drugs". Specifically, cover the following: What is the history of laws governing cannabis in the United States? What were the historical motivations behind making cannabis illegal? Were those motivations justified? Why or why not? Be sure to discuss both Harry J. Anslinger’s and the Nixon administration’s reasoning. How many states/districts have legalized cannabis in the United States for medicinal and recreational use? Do you see that trend continuing? Paper Guidelines Use a minimum of three sources, and cite these using APA format. For your demographics, use data that has been collected within the past three years. Your paper should be a minimum of 2-3 pages, but more importantly, should answer each question completely. You may wish to summarize your data in a table.
