Richard Nixon—derogatorily nicknamed Tricky Dick for his dirty campaign tactics—served as U.S. President from 1969 to 1974 when a scandal forced him to resign. Under his administration, the government solidified cannabis prohibition in the Controlled Substances Act and amped up enforcement by establishing the DEA. Nixon is considered the Supreme Leader of the Drug War championing cannabis prohibition based on political and racist motivations. He even tried to deport former Beatle legend John Lennon for a cannabis possession arrest years earlier in England. When it comes to presidential prohibitionists, Nixon truly is the biggest Dick of all. To learn more visit us at prohbtd****. Music provided by: Format Entertainment formatent****.
