AUDIO: The History of Marijuana in El Paso
A caller asked us a trivia question last week about where the first anti-marijuana legislation in the U.S. was. We didn't know.
It was El Paso in 1914!
We checked it out and found some interesting historical documents that confirm this. Some of the language they use is so un-PC that we felt you needed to hear it. So, we've created a documentary in the style of Ken Burns to give you all the information. Keep in mind, none of the quotes from the historical record or from eyewitness accounts are made up. Everything was actually said or written by someone. Click the link, below, to find out everything you never wanted to know about "Marihuana aka: the Devil's Flower" and it's history in El Paso...
