High History / Part XXXV / Timothy Leary VS United States

last year


THC is totally powerful enough to significantly distort things. This means, according to some of the most respected experts in the field, that cannabis is absolutely a psychedelic substance and that’s a good thing. It means #Marijuana has immense value for psychotherapy.

Timothy Leary believed cannabis to be a psychedelic. A psychedelic experience, Leary wrote in a landmark essay "On Programming Psychedelic Experiences," is any "Period of Intensely Heightened Reactivity to Sensory Stimuli Within and Without."

So Who Was Timothy Leary?

  • Dr. Timothy Francis Leary (October 22, 1920 - May 31, 1996) was an American Psychologist, lawyer and author celebrated for advocating the exploration of the therapeutic potential of psychedelic drugs under controlled conditions.

  • He was one of the most prominent and Controversial Figures of the 1960s and flower power contractility, especially because of her pleadings about the therapeutic, spiritual, and emotional benefits of LSD. He popularized the phrase "Turn on, Tune in, Drop out".

Timothy Leary Said:

I think that marijuana makes you sensual. I’ve watched many of my friends and loved ones become more erotic and dumber–just going around with a glazed expression on their faces from their last orgasms to the next–and found them really quite boring.


Leary VS United States

  • The Psychedelic Activist was busted by customs cops on March 13, 1966 at the U.S.- Mexico border in Laredo, Texas. With small group of family and friends in the car, Leary was denied entry back into America, then customs officials discovered five ounces of weed along with seeds scattered on the acid guru’s car floor, and charged Leary under a section of the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937.


  • Leary Welcomed The Arrest because he sought to generate a national debate on the hypocrisy of cannabis criminalization and to challenge the 1937 Marihuana Tax Act.

  • Leary took his case to court (Leary VS United States) and successfully argued that the legislation was unconstitutional because it required him to incriminate himself by paying a tax on the transfer of marijuana, he would be exposing himself to additional criminal penalties beneath state and federal law.

  • Thus, the law violated his privilege against self-incrimination. The Supreme Court agreed with Leary’s argument and, in 1969, issued a unanimous decision Striking Down The Marihuana Tax Act as unconstitutional.
