Apple Music: The Real Public Enemy

The song you are about to witness may startle you! It would not have been possible otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly increasing numbers. Marijuana is that drug — a violent narcotic — an unspeakable scourge — The Real Public Enemy Number One!

PROSECUTOR
Your honor, in this case the State
waives trial of the defendant Ralph
Wiley. It is convinced that he is
hopelessly and incurably insane,

insane by marihuana
insane by marihuana

A condition caused by the drug
marihuana to which he was addicted.
It is recommended your honor, that
the defendant be placed in an
institution for the criminally
insane for the rest of his natural
life. Defendant’s council joins the
State in this request.

JUDGE
Since Council for the defense, as
well as council for the State seem
to agree on this, I see no reason
why the request should not be
granted.

DR. CARROLL
Yes, that happened right here, to
your neighbors. It is not too much
to say that in your hands lies the
possibility of averting other
tragedies like it. We must work
untiringly, so that our children
are obliged to learn the truth.
Because it is only through
knowledge that we can safely
protect them. Failing this, the
next tragedy may be that of your
daughter. Or your son.

Or yours.

Or Yours.

Or YOURS!

Richard M. Nixon

At a press conference on June 17, 1971, President Nixon, with his newly appointed Drug authority at his side, declared drug abuse “public enemy number one.” “In order to fight and defeat this enemy,” he continued, “ it is necessary to wage a new, all-out offensive.” With that statement, the “war on drugs” began.
