SF Chronicle’s Marijuana Section

Today’s Sunday paper has a 32 page magazine dedicated to marijuana. Printed on polished newsprint, the magazine covers the heath effects, the consumption, sale, and cultivation of the ‘Yerba Buena.’It’s ads:

are quite expensive-looking.
In a time of shrinking newspaper sales and sizes it’s good to see the paper getting a nice bonus.
It’s bitterly ironic to see in that paper since is owned by the Hearst corporation and it was because of William Randolph Hearst that the US has suffered through 70 years of a stupid prohibition that exactly like the one on alcohol, succeeded only in the creation of organized crime syndicates.
And Hearst didn’t do it because it was a drug. He did it to protect his lumber and paper businesses because he knew that better quality paper could be made from hemp for less cost.
His greed ruined the lives of too many Americans to count and has been used for the last 50 years to militarize the police and to build an industry of for-profit prisons.
