Marijuana, and its drugless cousin hemp, were made illegal for one reason only: pressure from cotton farmers, who felt threatened by hemp/marijuana. Why, I don't know. But that's what happened.

And also the Hearst corporation, which didn't want hemp to outstrip wood pulp for paper-making.

Ah, paper-making makes so much more sense than cotton.
