Colorado Cannabis Time Capsule, 1937: "A growing social menace"

colorado cannabis time capsule.jpg
In doing research for our feature on the history of cannabis in Colorado, we came across some amazing old news stories from local papers about marijuana arrests and more. We'll share the most memorable of them in our quasi-regular feature, Colorado Cannabis Time Capsule.

Today's item, from August 8, 1937: "Marijuana in Denver? Sure, Plenty of the Stuff."

By the 1930s, cannabis was considered a growing menace in Denver society. The drug of choice for minorities (mostly Hispanic natives and immigrants who worked the farm fields surrounding the town), it apparently wasn't too hard to find.

At some point in the summer of 1937, two enterprising (and unnamed) Rocky Mountain News reporters delved into the depths of Denver's marijuana scene by spending a night out on Larimer Street for an article titled "Marijuana in Denver? Sure, Plenty of the Stuff." And it was far from objective. In it, the reporters constantly make mention of the skin color and education of the people they encounter, quoting their broken English and ridiculing the Hispanic revelers out for a night of relaxation with friends.

Rocky Mountain News.
Nowadays, Larminer Street is known for it's tony clothing boutiques and expensive restaurants. But back in the '30s, it was more like East Colfax, and everyone knew that a trip to Larminer Street meant a night out with a more seedy Denver crowd. As the headline reads: "Darkest dives in town sell Dream Stuff." And that pretty much sets the tone for the blatantly biased article that follows.

The reporters start out by saying that marijuana can be found easily, especially after dark. They detail their encounter with a loud, dark-skinned, drunk man who sobs to them that while he's not a Mexican, he's "no good" and has been drinking away his wife's $17-per-week salary. The reporters -- posing as musicians from Nebraska -- buy the guy a few drinks, then hit the poor drunk up for some weed. The man says he doesn't smoke anymore because he's so broke, but turns to the crowd at the bar and points out a woman who is apparently high and can help the reporters score.

At that point, the reporters move over to the woman, take a seat in the booth she is in, and buy a round of beers for everyone before asking where they can score some "hay." No doubt they felt they were being slick, but even now, the reporters sound like fish out of water in this bar -- and probably came across as narcs judging by the woman's reaction.

Donkey Hotay, you owe the rest of us answers to the following questions:

 

#1. Why do you rejoice at the fact that we have all been stripped of our unalienable rights, leaving us totally subordinate to a corporatized, despotic government with a heavily armed and corrupt, militarized police force whose often deadly intrusions into our homes and lives are condoned by an equally corrupt and spineless judiciary?

 

#2. Why do you wish to continue to spend $50 billion a year to prosecute and cage your fellow citizens for choosing substances which are not more dangerous than those of which you yourself probably use and approve of, such as alcohol and tobacco?

 

#3. Do you honestly expect the rest of us to look on passively while you waste another trillion dollars on this ruinously expensive garbage policy?

 

#4. Why are you waging war on your own family, friends and neighbors?

 

#5. Why are you so complacent with the fact that our once 'proud and free' nation now has the largest percentage of it's citizenry incarcerated than any other on the entire planet?

 

#6. Why are you helping to fuel a budget crisis to the point of closing hospitals, schools and libraries?

 

#7. Why do you rejoice at wasting precious resources on prohibition related undercover work while rapists and murderers walk free, while additionally, many cases involving murder and rape do not even get taken to trial because law enforcement priorities are subverted by your beloved failed and dangerous policy?

 

#8. Why are you a supporter of the 'prison industrial complex' to the extent of endangering our nation's children?

 

#9. Will you graciously applaud when, due to your own incipient and authoritarian approach, even your own child is caged and raped?

I can just imagine how receptive fascist Denver was in 1937 to the notion that cannabis represented some dire social menace!  Thirteen years prior, the KKK took control of the Republican Party, elected Governor Klansmen Clarence Morley, and took control of the Colorado House of Representatives and of every city in Colorado besides Colorado Springs; a majority of voters in Denver considered that Catholics, Jews, and Blacks were a growing social menace.

I love it.

I often close my comments on Marijuana stories with :Educate, Legalize, Regulate, Tax. Marijuana prohibition was never about Marijuana use. The more a person knows about Marijuana and our history with it, the more likely they are to support ending our prohibition of it.

 

Yes We Cannabis!

Do you think anyone thought we could really eradicate the plant from the planet? Or did they think it was a good way to lock up people they don't like, forever? I wonder if A64 supporters think it will reduce arrest, or are they just happy to still be allowed to lock up people they don't like, forever? The new "mexican" can turn out to be anyone 18-20, or anyone 21 and over with more than 6 plants and an ounce. I can't wait for cop cars to be fitted with weed scales, maybe they'll keep a bag with them in case they come across some dark skinned fellows, so they can throw some in to make sure it's over an ounce.

Current Colorado Statute = 2 (two) ounces for EVERYONE, without any arbitrary discrimination against or exclusion of the demographic group who suffers 50% of all marijuana arrests.

 

A64 = a retrograde step backwards, promoted by discriminatory bigots and prohibitionists who would surrender total control of marijuana to BigGovernment Regulators and deny ALL Coloradans the Freedom to grow their own self-sustaining personal supply.

 Why do you support the CONTINUATION of CRIMINAL PROHIBITION against Marijuana Users and Growers as proposed by A64?

 

Why is marijuana so Harmful and Dangerous that NO ADULT < 21 yrs old should be allowed ANY LEGAL access to it, as A64 proposes, feeding them to the Prison Industrial Complex?

 

What depraved idiots would beg the Government to REGULATE, RESTRICT, CONTROL and tax "a harmless plant that never killed anyone" LIKE DEADLY ALCOHOL that harms, maims and kills 10s of THOUSANDS every year?

 

Why do you hate marijuana users and growers so much that you would support a fraud like A64 that would continue to allow the "arrests of 10,000+" Colorado citizens every year?

 

and finally ... why are you so damn ignorant? ... does it hurt much?

 @RobertChase Before Colorado was a state there was a federal prison in Fremont, CO.  Fremont is today the most densely populated prisoner per sq ft county of any on the planet with something like 15 prisons.  Fremont county is home to the only supermax prison in the world.  Supermax and Colorado's CSP I and CSP II are torture chambers where we experiment on people who grew up on the wrong side of town and isolate them because we do not know how else to deal with angry caged humans.

 @Monkey Efforts to end Prohibition in Colorado will have collapsed if we defeat the second constitutional amendment to liberalize our laws against cannabis within six years, on top of the General Assembly's usurpation of control over medical cannabis.  Worst case scenario:  we lose A64, Romney is elected and moves against medical cannabis, and the 5ng THC/ml of blood per se standard for DUID is passed -- that last is a major threat even if A64 passes and Romney is defeated.

 @DonkeyHotay  @kevin_hunt "a retrograde step backwards" is redundant -- the claim is a ridiculous lie, too.  It is now a felony for a non-patient to grow any cannabis in Colorado; Amendment 64 would legalize adults' cultivation of up to six cannabis plants.

 @DonkeyHotay  @malcolmkyle16 Aaron Sawyer (alias Donkey Hotay) is a polemicist interested only in reaching stupid and ignorant users of cannabis; no useful purpose is served in addressing non-rhetorical questions to him, because, as you can see, he invariably answers such only with rhetorical questions.  While Aaron has a very few fans among the clueless cannabis-users opposing Amendment 64 (who cannot even seem to pick up on the fact that he addresses us as "stupid stoners"), his target audience is smaller than he imagines it to be.  Sawyer is doing more harm by fooling us into wasting our time answering his lies

 @RobertChaseHonestly Robert, I would vote for allowing everyone over 21 six plants and an ounce. I wouldn't call it legalization, but I'd vote for it. What prevents me from supporting A64 is the commercial regulations that you feel no one will be stupid enough to use. I believe many are stupid enough, and their greed will un-intentionally cause more harm than good. Through promoting their new business, they will give medicinal users an even more tarnished reputation, confirming the suspicions of those who believe MMJ is a scam. I also think there will be massive corruption within the regulatory scheme, and legislators will be forced to waste even more time "clarifying" things like HB1284/1043, leaving no time to work on further legalization for the people. As for the DUID, I'm scared too. I believe the passing of A64 will guarantee a limit for drivers, because of the comparison to alcohol and population allowed to use it. Without A64, we can still argue Constitutional rights, but for a very small population, such as patients, to possibly allow them a higher limit or remove the per se standard. I do agree 100%, that 5ng thing is a major threat. If A64 left out 80% of it's content, and just removed criminal penalties for 6 plants and an ounce, I would vote for it. As it is now, I can't vote for a commercialization campaign that regulates the people more than the industry it's written for.

 @DonkeyHotay  @kevin_hunt Correction:  it is a class 1 misdemeanor (a criminal offense) to grow six or fewer cannabis plants; this was one of the mitigations of the prohibitionist statutes accomplished by HB10-1352 (that I missed at the time)

RobertChase

 @DonkeyHotay I finally consulted the statute itself; you are correct that it is not a felony to grow six or fewer plants.  You have caught me in two errors recently; thanks -- I certainly couldn't expect any of the lawyers on our side to do more than sit silently smug when I made those assertions..  Of course, the fact that people are not necessarily arrested because cultivation of six plants is a class 1 misdemeanor does not change the conclusion that Amendment 64 will prevent people from being convicted of criminal offenses; we do not want the cultivation of cannabis to be a crime of any sort!

 

I acknowledged that VapoRub does not contain methamphetamine; you should acknowledge that VapoInhaler does.

 @Monkey People like you may make it impossible to do anything but be carried out to sea by the tide.  Your unwavering assumption that we are in control of the political process rather than the prohibitionists is totally irrational and prevents you from understanding political reality.  "We can't baby step forever" -- each step of whatever size is undertaken by either the electorate (far and away our greatest advance was passage of Amendment 20, twelve years ago) or would be undertaken by legislators, and most of them are inimical to our interests -- our only chance to take any step forward for the foreseeable future is Amendment 64.  Some of us who have been engaged in fighting Prohibition realize that we have been engaged in a fighting retreat -- we have not been taking "baby steps", but are being progressively forced back by the parasites who demonize cannabis and other drugs.  if your rhetoric seemed even slightly connected with the recent political history of medical cannabis in Colorado, it would be more credible.

 @RobertChase   When we disregard legalization and concentrate on limitations, we compromise ourselves too much and lose sight of our goals. Prohibition didn't start through compromise, and neither should the end of prohibition. If A64 was truly about the people, it would regulate the manufacturing and distribution of cannabis on a commercial market, but not the customers and everyone over 21. If A64 fails, those 21 and over can get a doctors note that protects them more than A64, and allows them more freedom. If A64 passes, we have 1oz and 6 plants inshrined in our Constitution, while corporate pigs with dreams of monopolizing a market draw federal attention to us all. People are sick and tired hearing about weed, we can't baby step forever, people will start ignoring us. We need to simply remove penalties without creating new limitations, protecting the people first, then move on to accommodate a frustrated industry looking for respect.

 @Monkey My contention is not that there are not more people willing and able to risk imprisonment, but that the General Assembly will not pass the enabling legislation called for by Amendment 64.  I do not believe that there will be any fallout for medical cannabis, because there will be no head-on collision with the Feds.  You can believe that A64's statement of purpose has legal effect in the face of having been told that it will not, but why not consult a constitutional lawyer and get back to us?  Amendment 64 will have no material effect on the DUID statute already on the books.  The system of regulation proposed by the Amendment (if it could be implemented, which it cannot) might not be ideal (and from my and many other people's perspective, any politically feasible system of regulation would be far too heavy-handed), but it would provide Colorado with all the benefits of legal cannabis.  Your constant references to corporate greed (here embodied in your reference to "a commercialization campaign") indicate a fundamental misunderstanding of the political challenge of ending Prohibition.  Patients and caregivers' rights have been trampelled upon by the cattle in the General Assembly and State bureaucracy, and if we want to re-assert their rights, we now face the choice of asserting that right for all adults, or continuing to be victims of the prohibitionist counterrevolution against medical cannabis.  We cannot afford a reactionary posture now.

-- A64 does NOT allow ANY private sales. Sales Arrest Reduction = ZERO

 

-- A64 specifically excludes Public Use and Display. Arrest Reduction = ZERO

 

-- A64 specifically declares DUI-m shall remain illegal. Arrest Reduction = ZERO

 

-- A64 only allows 3 (three) flowering plants, and only inside, and only for those over 21. There is not a single case where anyone over 21 in Colorado was ever arrested for only growing 3 flowing plants indoors. Arrest Reduction = ZERO
