Blah blah blah, they didn't remove cocain because they wanted to. They removed the cocaine because sneaky chinamen were getting white women addicted to cocaine and opium; then doing naughty things with them.

/ seriously; this is why opium and cocaine are illegal. Sneaky chinamen. The folks during the early 1900's were delightfully xenophobic and racist to boot.

I usually hate Coca-Cola, but when I'm having a meth-weekend, I drink the stuff like water.  Something about the sweetness of it makes me feel all bubbly inside.  Do you have any particular cravings when your binging?

There'd be a lot less uppity people to worry about, and a lot more Uppity people who care!

 U.S. State Department official Dr. Hamilton Wright said in 1910, "The use of cocaine by the negroes of the South is one of the most elusive and troublesome questions which confront the enforcement of the law ... often the direct incentive to the crime of rape by the negroes." Dr. Edward Williams described in the Medical Standardin 1914, "The negro who has become a cocaine-doper is a constant menace to his community. His whole nature is changed for the worse ... timid negroes develop a degree of 'Dutch courage' which is sometimes almost incredible."

 change the wording a tad and these could have been quotes from "Drug Czar" Bill Bennett at the begining of the Great Crack Scare of the 1990's

That's not a bad guess, seeing as how the country is convinced we went to "war for oil", but most of our oil comes from Canada.
