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

what-do-you-think-about-recreational-marijuana-and-medical-marijuanaWhat Do You Think About Recreational Marijuana And Medical Marijuana?
from GreenCulturED, ago in
Frame1 – What Do You Think About Recreational Marijuana And Medical Marijuana Vote Frame2 – Should recreational marijuana be legalized? And what about your medical marijuana vote… Public opinion in the United States and several countries in Europe and Latin America are grappling with this controversial issue. Medical marijuana is a growing industry, more and more people are hearing about this marijuana vote that has been sweeping our nation. Medical marijuana bills have legally been adopted in numerous states and even federal government in the District of Columbia and, as most know, Colorado and Washington have fully legalized marijuana for recreational use by adults. “This is really grounding breaking,” said Beau Kilmer, co-director of the Rand Drug Research Policy Center. “No modern jurisdiction has ever removed the prohibition on the production and possession of marijuana for recreational purposes…since no one has done this before, there are a lot of uncertainties.” There are several opinions against marijuana use in general and on the opposite side you will hear of positive arguments about the usage of marijuana. A good example is to take a look back at our own history (we’ve all heard history repeats itself) and look at the prohibition of alcohol. Alcohol was considered evil, the government made it illegal and that was what provided the foundation for the mob to make millions of tax free money. Or that by having a vote to legalize marijuana would increase tax revenues for the government and to not make it as profitable on the black market to discourage where most of marijuana is sold today. You might have heard of the recent actions of Congress Representatives Blumenauer and Polis released a report outlining the need for federal marijuana law reform, titled “The Path Forward: Rethinking Federal Marijuana Policy.” An effort is building in Congress to make a marijuana vote that would change United States’ laws, including moves to legalize the production of industrial hemp and create a federal tax. It introduces federal measures to legalize cannabis that would allow states and voters to decide if they will regulate marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol. Ending marijuana prohibition by regulating it like alcohol is said that it will generate tens of millions of dollars in tax revenue for state and local governments in this growing industry. Allen St. Pierre, executive director of NORML, a national group that lobbies for legalization, said he has heard from friends and family already planning trips to Colorado for the “cannabis tourism” that will certainly become popular. It is necessary to consider how marijuana and medical marijuana legalization is creating a totally unique industry in the United States and how it will impact parents, heavy users, medical users, employers, state and local economies, and even the drug traffickers.

from sergiomcgeez, ago in
Adult use of medical marijuana is slowly becoming accepted in the United States as well as other countries across the world after many years of being outlawed. This is because the substance has been proven to have benefits when it comes to treating certain kinds of medical conditions such as glaucoma and cancer. Another reason why medical marijuana is slowly gaining acceptance is because it is less addictive and does not have long term side effects that are usually associated with tobacco and alcohol usage. Even though it has not been legalized in all states in America yet, the movement to legalize it has gained momentum in the past few decades.
