More Facts about Cannabis

Learn about cannabis

Since the beginning of time, cannabis has been used in many cultures and today even though it is a prohibited substance, it is used more than many legal ones.  The history of cannabis is huge and the uses that we could give to it are endless.  There is still a lot to be discovered about cannabis, but one thing is for sure, it is helpful for humanity, this is why it was placed on this Earth.
As early as 105 AD, the Chinese had already invented a paper made out of hemp.  This is one of the earliest records of the use of cannabis in any culture, but it is certainly not the earliest one.  In late 1700s Napoleon discovered that the ancient Egyptians used cannabis on a regular basis, but he was not in favor of his men or people in France using it.  A little earlier, in the late 1400s the Pope admitted that smoking cannabis was a sacrilegious act and that it was good for everyone. 
Some Americans are not aware that the Declaration of Independence was made out of hemp paper, which is basically cannabis and was almost the same method used by Chinese people centuries before.  According to experts from the United Nations, more than 170 countries grow marijuana today and this is used in many different ways. Even if this activity is illegal in most of these countries, people still continue to fill their lands with this plant’s seeds. 
Smoking cannabis does transform people into demons and even though it is illegal, millions of people smoke it today.  Knowing more about cannabis and how this plant became illegal only around a century ago, is the only way we can make this plant legal again.  Growing marijuana could help the world in many different ways.  If our ancestors used it, there is no reason why it should be illegal today.
