Whether or not you are celebrating 4/20 — otherwise known as National Weed Day (in a country where weed is illegal nationwide under federal law) — you should know that 2016 marks the 45th anniversary of President Richard Nixon’s “War on Drugs” (June 17, 1971).
Jesse Ventura, the former Governor of Minnesota, has been a strong advocate for cannabis legalization, and he is so fed up with the government’s hypocrisy against a plant that he wrote a new book entitled Jesse Ventura’s Marijuana Manifesto (coming to stores nationwide on September 6, 2016). The book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon here.
“I know what you’re thinking. This is another one of those pro-pot books written by a liberal hippie, and he’s calling for decriminalization and full legalization of marijuana because he’s breaking the law right now by smoking it. Well, think again,” states Ventura. “I am pro-freedom, I am pro-marijuana, and I’ve written this book to show you how we can take our country back.”
In this manifesto, Jesse Ventura covers America’s history with marijuana and hemp as well as all the reasons for ending the corrupt drug war and legalizing cannabis entirely.
