In 1922, police magistrate and Canadian marijuana prohibitionist Emily Murphy wrote a book titled The Black Candle. It suggested that "aliens of colour" will "bring about the degeneration of the white race" through drug trafficking. Murphy played upon the spectre of pure white women becoming defenceless against "black-haired beasts in our human jungle," and alluded to the notion that drug use in general is part of a global non-white plot to enslave Caucasians. Her solution was to "insist on people of colour's exclusion from this continent."
