The marijuana reclassification is great but would love if we also had a reckoning about America’s drug law history. Quote from one of Nixon’s henchmen: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/justice-department-formally-moves-to-reclassify-marijuana-as-a-less-dangerous-drug-in-historic-shift

Agreed, but also it’s crazy that this article didn’t even mention that Biden is undoing the problem he himself helped create. Joe Biden is one of the biggest villains in the history of drug policy. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/05/joe-bidens-marijuana-legalization/

Where is this quote from? I would love to read about this, that sounds super interesting and I never viewed anti-drug laws from that angle. God, if that is truly the intend behind those laws... that's so fucked up.

The war on drugs and its systemic racism was mostly Reagan. Not to say Nixon didn’t play his part before then. Reagan’s focus on punishments of cocaine vs crack is the textbook 101 example of systemic racism from the war on drugs.

early on in a long campaign of criminalizing being poor, it's always been about so much more than marijuana

Read that Reagan as governor of California also used other methods to shut down antiwar protestors who were mostly students, raising the cost of tuition dramatically (something which came to define US colleges and universities) as a way to keep out the working class who were more likely to protest in solidarity
