Marijuana is that drug — a violent narcotic — an unspeakable scourge — The Real Public Enemy Number One!

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.
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
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.
