Corley, Edwin - Acapulco Gold. Michael Joseph. 1974, UK 1st. It had to happen sooner or later, Government reports progressively stated that marijuana was not only not addictive but possession should be downgraded from a felony to a misdemenaour and ginally that it was little worse than liquor, if indeed it was worse at all. But when the President-elect let it be known to a major campaign contributor (who just happened to own a huge tobacco company) that he planned to legalize marijuana afte his inauguration, the race was on. Coult Coronet Tobacco Company take advantage of its knowledge of impending legislation to be the first on the market? The potential stakes made even the billion dollar tobacco business look small by comparison. The market for a legal marijuana cigarette would include millions of consumers of liquor, tranquillizers, and cigaretttes, as well as the huge illegal underground market among the young which had already made hundreds of pushers rich. But the penalties were also great. Selling marijunna was against the law and anyone trying to be first on the market was taking the risk of getting caught with illegal marijuanna on hand before legalization. And what would happen if under political presure the president-elect broke his promise? (flap). 8¾" x 5½", 330pp, black cloth, hardback. Very good minus; complete with very good minus, price-cut, wrapper.
