budtender-school-marijuana-history-101Bud-Tender School – Marijuana History 101
from GreenCulturED, ago in
Let’s Brush Up On Your Marijuana History Cannabis (also known as marijuana and hemp) is indigenous to Central and South Asia. Contemporary uses of cannabis are as a recreational or medicinal drug, and as part of religious or spiritual rites; the earliest recorded uses date from the 3rd millennium B.C. The Chinese Emperor Fu His (ca. 2900 B.C.), whom the Chinese credit with bringing civilization to China, seems to have made reference to Ma, the Chinese word for Cannabis, noting that Cannabis was a very popular medicine that possessed both yin and yang. Around 2000 B.C., the Egyptians used cannabis to treat sore eyes. And then a century later, doctors in India could be found mixing marijuana with milk to use as an anesthetic. In 200 B.C. the Greeks used marijuana to remedy earaches. During the Middle Ages, hemp was central to any herbalist’s medicine cabinet. William Turner, the naturalist considered the first English botanist, praised it in his New Herball, published in 1538. It was in the early 1,600’s when Jamestown settlers brought the marijuana plant, commonly known as hemp, to North America and throughout the colonial period, hemp fiber was an important export. Such notable used for cannabis slowed to a screeching halt and was temporarily removed from history after 1937, when the Marihuana Tax Act effectively banned the drug in the United States. Marijuana Is Actually A Misunderstood Kind Of Substance It is a good thing that debates have paved the way to discover that it has many good uses more than what’s been described since Congress passed the Controlled Substances Act in 1970 that classified marijuana as a drug with “no accepted medical use”. It was in the same year that NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) was founded as a nonprofit, public-interest advocacy group whose mission is to end marijuana prohibition. Marijuana history was made in America on November 5th, 1996 when voters in California passed a state medical marijuana initiative known as Proposition 215. The legislation permits patients and their primary caregivers, with a physician’s recommendation, to possess and cultivate marijuana for medical use. Today 60% of Americans support legalizing marijuana for medical use, according to an April 2010 AP-CNBC poll. Many more states now allow the usage of marijuana for certain medical condition thus giving birth to the term medical marijuana and are now paving the road for the legal cannabis industry. Many medical studies have shown that marijuana has the ability to help people suffering from a variety of medical conditions. Tumor cells growing in some areas in the body have been scientifically proven to decrease through marijuana use. In fact, many of states are willing to let it help the economy by imposing taxes on it. People who have been supporting the use and growing of marijuana are expecting that the law changes will soon make it happen. Learn
