That's a very interesting point, and it made me think of a question which might be stupid. The drug advocates are fond of saying that the drug war is racist against blacks, and that Nixon masterminded it that way. Let's say they have a crooked handle on a truth they don't understand. Could it be that before that prohibition, blacks really did use cannabis in an unusual way: to maintain a more-socially-acceptable temperament? I don't know enough of its use, effects, or the associated historical demographics to begin to answer that.
