1984 was a bad year for cannabis

What up!

Three years after taking office, Ronald Reagan signed into law the Comprehensive Crime Control Act, a piece of legislation that was anti-freedom in numerous ways.  Not only did the act increased federal penalties on the possession, cultivation, or sale of cannabis, it also launched the era of asset forfeiture by law enforcement agencies.

Cops were thus permitted to seize (read: steal) the property of any “suspected” cannabis dealer without a court order and before filing charges against their suspect.  Even if the individual was exonerated in court, there remained onerous hoops to jump through in order to reclaim their stolen property. 

This newly permitted tool of violence was used in great earnest, and forfeiture quickly became a cash cow for law enforcers.  Between 1981 and 1987, seizures rose from $100 million to over $1 billion, and police departments went on a jack-booted buying spree stocking up on semiautomatic weapons, computer equipment, body armor, and even helicopters & other militaristic vehicles.

Soon enough, nearly half of the police departments across the country had become reliant on seizures to fund their ever-increasing budgets.  They remain reliant on this practice (which would be considered criminal in any other context) to this day.

While the politicians and their enforcers were able to violently beat back the cultural progress made on the cannabis front during the ’60s & ’70s, a non-brainwashed remnant remained that never submitted to this tyranny.  Along with that remnant were the natural market-based incentives driving the cannabis industry forward even during these dark times.

That remnant & those incentives have combined today to give us the revolutionary development of Delta-8 THC products.  Because of these advances, the threat to freedom posed by cops’ enforcement of political dictates against cannabis has all but disappeared.
