Marihuana Tax Act Marijuana Seller Convicted under US Federal Law

Even though every state had laws criminalizing the possession and sale of marijuana, federally it was still allowed to be prescribed.  However, if a doctor or pharmacist prescribed or sold marijuana they had to register with federal authorities and pay an annual tax or license fee.  Doctors, pharmacists and individuals decided it was cheaper and easier to use other medications.

Also in this year, the first conviction of a marijuana seller occurred.  He and his customer were found guilty.
