The History of That Medicine That is Called Marijuana

For those of you who knows me well you know this is a topic close to my heart :}

It’s many medicinal properties have been recorded in writings going back nearly 5000 years (2737BC) in ancient Chinese scrolls. Its use spread from China to India and then to N Africa and reached Europe at least as early as A.D. To put things in perspective I believe the Americans were the first to ban it’s use medicinally as well as recreationally of course. Why? Misinformation misleading the masses (see Reefer Madness).

So now it’s the Americans are doing their best to rectify their ridiculous overreaction by various states making it legal to have a puff and now Canada as well.

So it’s been around and known about for 5000+ years, it just so happens i have lived within the 70 odd years that it;s been illegal! 🙁 ffs.. The following 3 articles give you all the facts..
