It rejected the idea that the most talented artists used, but contributed to the reefer madness discourse by suggesting that use was quite prevalent among second-rate musicians in swing bands. And instead of improving their musical abilities, marijuana actually degraded them, along with the musicians’ general motivation to participate as useful members of society. “One leader told me of a young man in his band who was a crackerjack musician, but who used the weed so consistently that he was quite undependable. The fits of deep depression reefers so often, [sic] produce would seize him until he had to be restrained, from suicide.” Jack Hanley, “Exposing the Marijuana Drug Evil in Swing Bands” Here’s the connection between marijuana use and mental illness again.

As I’ve suggested, the tendency of marijuana to produce depression, mania, and psychosis is well documented in this period, but should probably be attributed to correlation rather than causation. In 1927, Robert Kingman wrote a fascinating article in the Medical Journal and Record, singing the praises of the “green goddess,”as a miracle drug in emerging psychiatric practice. He argued that “insanity, dreams, and drug intoxication,” were manifestations of the same mental state. Thus, marijuana was potentially a cure for mental illness, particularly suitable for addressing the symptoms of neurasthenia, the classic illness of “over civilization,” and of poverty and depravation. “My whole body’s sent, and I feel like I’m a millionaire/ my whole body’s sent, lord, I feel like I’m a millionaire/ if I’m broke I still got money, if I’m hungry I don’t even care.” -Curtis Jones, “Reefer Hound Blues” (1938) So what to make of these surprisingly close connections between the sensationalist rhetoric of the peddlers of reefer madness and the almost playful lyrics (you have to hear it) of marijuana-referencing jazz musicians? I think it is easy (and I’m sure Anslinger grinned every time he read one of these lyrics) to say that these similarities validated the fear mongers.

But I think there is a deeper epistemological significance for historians and other scholars that deal with drug history. These stories provide yet another way in to the histories of recreational, “non-medical” (a loaded term) users of cannabis. Perhaps it’s not that the jazz lyrics validate the worst fears manifested during the reefer madness era, but possibly (I think likely) the propaganda was a complete misinterpretation of the actual experience of recreational users, providing a way to read through (against the grain, or parallel to it) the rich source material in jazz archives across the country. These, along with similar methodological approaches applied to the “official records” of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics are, collectively, small but significant pieces of a larger puzzle that can uncover these stories. “If he takes a sudden mania/ he’ll want to give you Pennsylvania/ Oh you know your talking to the reefer man.” –Cab Calloway “The Reefer Man” (1932) Это видео недоступно.
