Cannabis prohibition was brought to fruition through propaganda and lies that are still to this day being told and believed. There is strong evidence that Cannabis was used both medicinally and ceremonially in the bible. Just do a word search for Kaneh-Bosm and you might just learn something new.

the first known use of marijuana dates to circa 7,000 B.C. Marijuana was used as a medicinal herb by the ancient Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans for stomach ailments, cramps, and pain. Marijuana, like opium and heroin, has its roots in Asia. How it found its way to the Americas is somewhat of a mystery. Historians speculate that Napoleon's troops probably brought marijuana to Europe in 1804 following his military exploits, then European immigrants brought it with them to the New World. Marijuana was probably first brought to Latin America by Spanish conquistadors in the 1500 -1600's. Hispanic migrant laborers are thought to have brought it across the U.S. border in the early 1900's.

Marijuana was first used in the U.S. for medicinal purposes in the 1800's, however, the cannabis (hemp) plant fiber had been used for thousands of years. Hemp fiber was the main ingredient of the first woven fabric. Hemp was used to make rope, twine, cloth, and paper among other things. The word 'canvas' originated from the Latin term cannapaceus or “made of hemp.” The 'sheets' that powered the ships of old were made of hemp canvas because the sun and salt water rapidly deteriorated cotton fabrics. Canvas sails were extremely durable and could withstand the elements. Canvas was used for the covered wagons of pioneers on their westward journey, and the original Levi's Jeans were made of old canvas sails.

Although marijuana had been around for a long time, widespread use of marijuana as a recreational drug did not become widespread until alcohol was banned during Prohibition (1920 - 1933). Prior to that, marijuana had been used in the Americas for hundreds of years for its medicinal qualities. As soon as the government banned alcohol, marijuana took its place and consumption soared. Once alcohol was legal again, use of marijuana steeply declined. We are living in a illisional world. Everywhere you turn there is weed, it grows anywhere and everywhere. Stops cutting down trees and make shit out of hemp
