    It was for political reasons mostly. The main influence came from timber barons who pushed for marijuana criminalization in order to eliminate hemp as a commercial competitor for their timber interests. There was also a strong push from Puritans, who wanted to ban anything they believed distracted people from the worship of God, and racists, who wanted an excuse to persecute the primary users of marijuana at the time, blacks and Mexican immigrants.

    I believe modern resistance to the legalization of marijuana comes from pharmaceutical companies. They probably fear legalized marijuana would hurt their sales of Zoloft, Prozac, and other prescription medications designed to help people cope with the stress of modern life.

    Their are multiple right answers, the tember industry was one of them but what got the people behind it was the propaganda such as movies like reefer madness that told the people you might kill and rape your family if you smoke it.

    Follow the above link to a detailed history of marijuana prohibition in the USA.

    In addition please consider this;

    Each year in this country 430,000 people die from diseases caused by willful or passive exposure to tobacco products. 100,000 people die from diseases caused by intentional consumption of alcoholic drinks. Since the inception of federal marijuana prohibition in 1937 only one person has died from ingesting marijuana. He choked on it because he tried to eat it while he was being chased by the pigs.

    The enforcement of drug and firearm prohibition has allowed the government to turn this land into a pig powered police state.
