Although it has been known to man for nearly 5,000 years, marihuana is one of the least understood of all natural drugs. Unlike other drugs, it has no known use in modern medicine. It is used mainly for its intoxicating effects. HOW WIDELY IS IT USED IN THE UNITED STATES? The use of marihuana as an intoxicating drug was introduced in the United States in 1920. In T037, its general use was outlawed by the Federal Marihuana Tax- Act, followed by strict laws and enforcement in every States. In the mid-1960's, authorities reported a sharp increase in the use of marihuana. Arrests on marihuana charges have more than doubled since 1960, according to the President's Commission on Crime. HOW DOES THE DRUG WORK? When smoked, marihuana quickly enters the bloodstream and acts on the brain and nervous system. It affects the user's mood and thinking. Because it may cause hallucinations when taken in very large doses, it is classed as a mild "hallucinogen." Just how the drug works in the body and how it produces its effects have not yet been discovered by medical science. WHAT ARE THE LAWS DEALING WITH MARIHUANA? Under federal law, to have, give or sell marihuana in the United States is a felony, which is a serious crime. Federal and many State laws deal with the drug as severely as if it were a narcotic. The Federal penalty for possessing the drug is 2 to 10 years imprisonment for the first offense, 5 to 20 years for the second offense, and 10 to 40 years for further offenses. Fines of up to $20,000 for the first or subsequent offenses may be imposed. State laws also control the illicit use of these drugs. For transfer or sale of the drug, the first offense may bring a 5- to 20-year sentence ond a fine of up to $20,000; two or more offenses, 10 to 40 years in prison. If a person over 18 sells to a minor under 18 years of age, he is subject to a fine of up to $20,000 and/or 10 to 40 years in prison for" the first offense, with no suspension of sentence, probation, or parole. DRUGS! ABUSE! HELP- A "START" For Youth In Trouble "The faster I run, the further I fall back" might well describe the current plight of parents, community leaders, professionals, and clergy in their struggle against drug misuse - a growing national concern. The blight of illegal drug traffic - the lives it ruins and the lives it takes - is a serious concern for every American. Grass (Marihuana), Speed (Methedrine), Yellow Jacket (Nembutal), and LSD have become household words. Economic and cultural barriers are disregarded when we talk of drug misuse. There are many reasons for the current epidemic of drug misuse. Very broadly, drug abuse can be described as an effort by individuals to feel differently than they do.. Many drugs temporarily allow their users to evade frustrations, to lessen depression and feelings of alienation, or to escape from themselves. START, Inc. is a non-profit organization established to help the drug abuser in Houston. It will provide these services through the cooperative efforts of the medical, judicial^ and law enforcement fields and with the help of local, state, federal, and private funds. (If you are in need of help and not in the Houston area, write this paper and we will make every effort to locate help for you in your immediate area).
