You know, it's a funny thing, every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing marijuana is Jewish. What the Christ is the matter with the Jews, Bob?" he said to top aide H.R. Haldeman. "What is the matter with them? I suppose it's because most of them are psychiatrists.
— USA:s f.d president Richard Nixon[2]
Dope? Do you think the Russians allow dope? Hell no. Not if they can catch it. They send them up," Nixon said.

Om tonårshjärnan är ett gammalt modem och en vuxenhjärna ett modernt bredband så gör cannabismissbruket att den yngre hjärnan inte kan utvecklas till det sistnämnda.

...

Dessutom ska man vara medveten om att när du köper droger så finansierar du ett vapeninköp för ett krig någonstans i världen där oskyldiga mördas. Kriget i Afghanistan var exempelvis finansierat av opium.
— Thomas Lundqvist citeras av Norra Skåne[3]

Det finns många som vill legalisera cannabis och som menar att det inte finns några egentliga studier som visar att cannabis är farligare än alkohol.

– Dom har ju inte läst. Det finns hur mycket forskning som helst så det är bara att läsa på, säger Thomas Lundqvist.
— Thomas Lundqvist citeras av SR[4]

- Du vet inte vad som händer när du använder det, så det är lika bra att låta bli, oavsett om det är lagligt eller olagligt. Ibland händer det saker, i bland inte, det vet du inte förrän du testat.
— Thomas Lundqvist svarar på frågan "Vad är ditt bästa argument mot cannabis?" i City Malmö 2012-09-27
– Av 100 som börjar med sprit blir kanske 20 missbrukare. Av 100 som börjar röka hasch blir säkert 60–70 procent missbrukare
— Leif Danielsson, gruppchef på spaningsenheten för narkotikaärenden i Dalapolisen [5]
Att protestera mot cannabisförbudet är egentligen skamligt, särskilt när de kommer från personer i rika länder med relativt kort erfarenhet av cannabis. I utvecklingsländerna finns ingen legaliseringsrörelse. De som vill legalisera cannabis talar i egen sak och har inte ens på hemmaplan någon folklig opinion bakom sig. Att försvara det globala förbudet mot cannabis handlar förutom allt annat om internationell solidaritet.
— Pelle Olsson[6]

Sunda åsikter om droger

Rational people change their minds when confronted with new evidence. Back then, I was not aware of the seriousness of the issue.
— Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Sociologist, f.d president Brazilien (1995 – 2002) om kriget mot droger
To think of it as society's war is a little bit misleading, as if there were a military solution. And you know I have experience with this; including personal experience. I had a brother who was addicted to cocaine, so I know a lot about this.
— Bill Clinton, f.d President, USA (1993 - 2001) om kriget mot droger
There is a clear proof in our country of a racial discrimination in laws that apply to criminalizing the use of narcotics.
— Jimmy Carter, f.d President, USA (1977 - 1980)
Who are the addicts? Our children, I mean people we love, people we would like really to bring back into normal life.
— Ruth Dreifuss, f.d President, Schweiz (1999)
Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marihuana in private for personal use... Therefore, I support legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce of marihuana.
— Jimmy Carter, f.d President, USA (1977 - 1980)
The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this.
— Albert Einstein[7]
The drug war has arguably been the single most devastating, dysfunctional social policy since slavery.
— Norm Stamper, Chief of Police, Seattle P.D. (Ret.)[8]
Legalization won’t be an immediate cure-all for drug abuse. What legalization can do, though, is take a $500 billion a year industry away from the control of gangs and cartels.
— Terry Nelson, U.S. Border Patrol, Customs, Dept. of Homeland Security (Ret.)[8]
Education has drastically reduced tobacco consumption, and we didn’t have to arrest our way to that reduction. But we’ve arrested our way into being the most incarcerated population on the planet, and it hasn’t stemmed the flow of drugs or our appetite for them.
— Russ Jones, U.S. Gov’t Intelligence; San Jose Narc & Rehab Trainer (Ret.)[9]
When our government’s policies have brought us to the point that we imprison black males at a rate six times greater than South Africa’s heinous apartheid, it is time for all of us to acknowledge its racist roots.
— Matthew Fogg, U.S. Marshal (Ret.)[8]
