Facts About Marijuana
Marijuana was first cultivated in China around 4000 B.C. and the U.S. Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper. Twelve Americans receive prescribed marijuana from the U.S. government. There are three main types of Marijuana: Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Ruderalis. Cannabis Sativa grows taller and it gives more of a head high. Indica is a short bushy plant and the high is more muscle relaxing throughout the body and it has variety of medical uses. Cannabis Ruderalis grows in colder climates (Eastern Europe and Russia). Skunk is the strong Cannabis Indica hybrid. Interesting fact about marijuana is that marijuana cures/prevents more than 100 diseases including cancer and depression. High levels of THC (psychoactive part of cannabis) are found mostly in female plants.
Most of the smokers like to keep their females plans seed free. Which means they discard all male plants on order to stop them from pollinating female plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is compound in cannabis that helps cancer patients and it is suggested that these patients intake marijuana that contains higher levels of CBD. Interestingly, North Korea is one of the first countries to legalize Marijuana and it is freely grown and smoked through out the country. Another fact is that women are more sensitive to marijuana and it was suggested that teenage girls should smoke with precaution since they are vulnerable to anxiety and depression.
Why Is Marijuana Illegal?
The truth is there is no legitimate reason why at this point. Medical information and analysis resoundingly points to numerous benefits of using cannabis properly. Several states in the United States have already approved the legalization of medical marijuana and many have approved the recreational use of marijuana. It’s a plant so insanity reigns supreme when you need government approval to grow and consume a plant.
One faction likely opposed to legalizing cannabis is law enforcement and the court system. Cops and lawyers will miss out on a whole bunch of cheap arrests and convictions for possession of cannabis. Never fear however, there are tools being developed to help cops nail drivers for driving under the influence of cannabis.
