Quotation by Harry J. Anslinger:

Not long ago the body of a young girl lay crushed on the sidewalk after a plunge from a Chicago apartment window. Everyone called it suicide, but actually it was murder. The killer was a narcotic known to America as marijuana, and to history as hashish..." —Harry J. Anslinger, Commissioner of the US Bureau of Narcotics, 1930 - 1962, in The American Magazine, July 1937.
