The primary goal of this thesis is to reveal a new perspective with regard to the dilemma of the prohibition of marihuana.In particular, the subject matter delves into the specific history of the hemp industry of the 1930s.According to this authors research, the circumstances surrounding the evolution of the marihuana issue in the United States were directly effected by certain developments in the hemp and wood pulp industries of the 1930s. Aspects of this thesis are not entirely original and the author is indebted to the efforts of previous researchers. However, the main arguments of this thesis have been based upon original material.
