Pot Through the Years
FILE - This Sept. 20, 1996 file photo shows a television ad aired by Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole's campaign which includes footage from a 1992 MTV interview of a laughing President Clinton saying he would inhale marijuana if given the chance to relive his college days. The words on the screen read, ''Clinton's liberal drug policies have failed.'' On the occasion of “Legalization Day,” Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012, when Washington’s new law takes effect, AP takes a look back at the cultural and legal status of the “evil weed” in American history.
