    Note: The title ‘Marijuana Use Holds Risks,
    Such As Drug Addiction’ was the USA Today headline
    above the first of three printed letters By Cyril H. Wecht, M.D.
    The emotional hysteria generated by any reference to marijuana usage ( illicit or medically authorized ) is a fascinating psychological-sociological phenomenon throughout the U.S. This exaggerated reaction can be traced back to the 1930s when Harry Anslinger, the head of the federal drug agency at the time, spent a lot of effort castigating marijuana usage. It is truly amazing that this perception lingers today.

    Congress (has proposed in the past) that the amount of marijuana necessary to trigger the death penalty be substantially lowered. The “Drug Importer Death Penalty Act of 1997,” introduced by admitted former marijuana smoker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), would potentially sentence first offenders convicted of bringing more than 50 grams (less than two ounces) of marijuana across U.S. borders to life in prison without parole. Those offenders convicted for a second time — presumably the first offense would have been convicted before H.R. 41’s enactment — would be sentenced to death. Thirty-seven members of Congress are present cosponsors of this bill.
