Oval Office. May 26, 1971 10:03 am
NIXON: "Now, this is one thing I want. I want a Goddamn strong statement on marihuana. Can I get that out of this sonofabitching, uh, Domestic Council?"
NIXON: "I mean one on marihuana that just tears the ass out them. I see another thing in the news summary this morning about it.
You know it's a funny thing, every one of the bastards that are out for leglizing marihuanа is Jewish.
What the Christ is the matter with the Jews, Bob, what is the matter with them?
I suppose it's because most of them are psychiatrists, you know, there's so many, all the greatest psychiatrists are Jewish.
By God we are going to hit the marihuana thing, and I want to hit it rights square in the puss, I want to find a way of putting more on that.
More [unintelligible] work with somebody else with this."
HALDEMAN: "Mm hmm, yep."
NIXON: "I want to hit it, against legalizing and all that sort of thing."
