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

beware-of-marijuana-stocksBeware of Marijuana Stocks
from InvestingTips, ago in Beware of Marijuana Stocks Now that Colorado has legalized marijuana for recreational use, should you jump in with both feet or beware of marijuana stocks. We are, by the way, discussing investment in marijuana related businesses and not your own recreational use! Is there money to be made investing in marijuana stocks? Fundamental analysis of these stocks is, well, fundamental. Marijuana is legal for medical use in California and New York may also make medical marijuana legal. Colorado is the first to legalize the plant for recreational use but others may follow. Which businesses will be profitable and which will be able to scale up when the opportunity arises? But, before looking at a couple of stocks, here is a bit about the law in Colorado. Colorado Marijuana Use Law Colorado has two sets of laws regarding marijuana. These have to do with recreational use and medical use. Colorado Amendment 64 states: Adults aged twenty-one or older can grow up to three immature and three mature cannabis plants privately in a locked space, legally possess all cannabis from the plants they grow (as long as it stays where it was grown), legally possess up to one ounce of cannabis while traveling, and give as a gift up to one ounce to other citizens 21 years of age or older. Consumption is permitted in a manner similar to alcohol, with equivalent offenses proscribed for driving. Public consumption remains illegal. Amendment 64 also provides for licensing of cultivation facilities, product manufacturing facilities, testing facilities, and retail stores. This law allows for sales of marijuana for recreational use, taxation of profits from these facilities, and various ordinances relating to such establishments. It is the potential for profit from recreational use of marijuana that is of primary interest for those investing in marijuana stocks. Beware of marijuana stocks that do not comply with the law in Colorado.
