Cannabis was valued throughout the world as much for its healing properties as for its recreational uses. In America, the hemp plant was cultivated on thousands of farms and hempseed oil was commonly used for medicinal purposes. Americans also enjoyed the pleasing effects of smoking cannabis in addition to consuming alcoholic beverages.
However, over time, cannabis was deemed a threat to commerce and society. It was eventually banned, but the evidence against it was based more on sensational media stories, greed and aspirations to political power than on public opinion and unbiased scientific research. As a result, the cannabis community was driven underground, creating a culture of misunderstanding, suspicion, fear and illegal activity.
Today, science and medicine are leading a nationwide wave of efforts to legalize medical and recreational marijuana and its chemical compounds for use as effective treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, glaucoma, cancer and other serious medical conditions. In response, states across the country have begun legalizing medical and recreational cannabis, creating a new jobs and significant new sources of tax revenue.
