SHADOW OF THE SWASTIKA: The Real Reason the Government Won't Debate...al Cannabis and Industrial Hemp Re-legalization by R. William Davis
He knew that cannabis hemp was an alternative industrial raw material for theproduction of thousands of products, including fuel and plastics, which, if allowedto compete in the free-market, would threaten the future profits of the oilcompanies. As Secretary of the Treasury he created the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, and appointed his own future nephew-in-law, Harry Anslinger, asdirector. Anslinger would later use the sensational, and totally fabricated, articlespublished by Hearst, to push the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 through Congress,which successfully destroyed the rebirth of the cannabis hemp industry.A prominent member of one Congressional subcommittee who voted in favor of this bill was Joseph Guffey of Pennsylvania, an oil tycoon and former businesspartner of Andrew Mellon in the Spindletop oil fields in Texas.

A list of thecorporations named include Du Pont, Standard Oil, and General Motors, all of which wereproven to be conspiring with Nazi industrial cartels to eliminate competition world-wideand divide among themselves the Earth's industrial resources and commercial markets, forprofitable exploitation.This conspiracy succeeded. It is now obvious that this lack of serious competition in theindustrial raw materials market caused our present - and totally contrived - addiction topetrochemicals. Its success is directly responsible for the most troubling problems we nowface in the 1990s; serious damage to our environment, concentration of economic andpolitical power into fewer and fewer hands, and the weakening of the rights of individualsand states to determine their own futures.It is more and more evident that, given the historical record, the structure of the New
