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

from GreenCulturED, ago in
Where In The World Are Legal Marijuana Countries? Legal marijuana countries are hard to find because legalizing it has always been a touchy subject for most. However, through the years, there are more and more legal marijuana countries or close enough to be legal that set to legalize the use of marijuana for medical reasons while others are for recreational purposes. According to Wikipedia, “many countries have decriminalized the possession of small quantities of cannabis, particularly in North America, South America, and Europe. Furthermore, possession is legal or effectively legal in the Netherlands, North Korea, and the U.S. states of Washington and Colorado at the state level. A larger number of countries have decriminalized or legalized cannabis for medical purposes. The United States, Canada, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Israel, Italy, Finland, and Portugal have passed laws so you can legally buy marijuana for medical use. Whatever reasons there are, these green-loving people have a voice that needs to be heard. Cannabis is known to give relief. A lot of studies show that people who are using cannabis as part of their pain control experience lower pain levels. The plant has a psychoactive property that hits the brain’s emotional response to pain. This causes patients to feel a decrease in the pain they actually feel. For scientists, any reduction of pain levels is very significant. If the use of medicinal marijuana eases patients from fits of terrible pain, then who has the right to get in the way. As an organic therapy, truly, Mother Nature knows best. For some legal marijuana countries, this is the sole purpose why they allow the use of cannabis. So if you are a backpacking-enthusiast-marijuana-activist, your travel guide should know the following legal marijuana countries and what are their do’s and don’ts. In Belgium, people above 18 are not allowed to smoke marijuana in front of minors and in public. Before setting foot in Australia, know that there are some regions such as Queensland and Tasmania partial to the use of cannabis. They decriminalize possession even in small amount, but charges are dropped. In Nepal, you can do with giving a small bribe when caught but because there is no implementation of the laws against marijuana use. Newest Medical Marijuana Country Huffington Post recently reported, “Czech President Vaclav Klaus has signed into law legislation that makes it legal in the Czech Republic to use marijuana for medical treatment.” This law, the use of medical marijuana, is only allowed to patients needing this special indication in their treatment. This usually pertains to people suffering from chronic pain or illness like cancer patients. They need to get prescription from their doctors for their medicinal use. Patients are not allowed to grow their own marijuana though. Learn More At:
