Marijuana’s History

Hey guys here’s some marijuana history! Ever wonder how marijuana spread through the world.. Well i have found this article and it will give you insight on where your favorite weed originated.


From the sites where prehistoric hunters and gatherers lived, to ancient China and Viking ships, cannabis has been used across the world for ages, and a new report presents the drug’s colorful history.

In the report, author Barney Warf describes how cannabis use originated thousands of years ago in Asia, and has since found its way to many regions of the world, eventually spreading to the Americas and the United States.

“For the most part, it was widely used for medicine and spiritual purposes,” during pre-modern times, said Warf, a professor of geography at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. For example, the Vikings and medieval Germans used cannabis for relieving pain during childbirth and for toothaches, he said.

“The idea that this is an evil drug is a very recent construction,” and the fact that it is illegal is a “historical anomaly,” Warf said. Marijuana has been legal in many regions of the world for most of its history.

Where did pot come from?

It is important to distinguish between the two familiar subspecies of the cannabis plant, Warf said. Cannabis sativa, known as marijuana, has psychoactive properties. The other plant is Cannabis sativa L. (The L was included in the name in honor of the botanist Carl Linnaeus.) This subspecies is known as hemp; it is a nonpsychoactive form of cannabis, and is used in manufacturing products such as oil, cloth and fuel. [11 Odd Facts About Marijuana]

A second psychoactive species of the plant, Cannabis indica, was identified by the French naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, and a third, uncommon one, Cannabis ruderalis, was named in 1924 by Russian botanist D.E. Janischevisky.

Cannabis plants are believed to have evolved on the steppes of Central Asia, specifically in the regions that are now Mongolia and southern Siberia, according to Warf. The history of cannabis use goes back as far as 12,000 years, which places the plant among humanity’s oldest cultivated crops, according to information in the book “Marihuana: The First Twelve Thousand Years” (Springer, 1980).

“It likely flourished in the nutrient-rich dump sites of prehistoric hunters and gatherers,” Warf wrote in his study.

Burned cannabis seeds have also been found in kurgan burial mounds in Siberia dating back to 3,000 B.C., and some of the tombs of noble people buried in Xinjiang region of China and Siberia around 2500 B.C. have included large quantities of mummified psychoactive marijuana.

Both hemp and psychoactive marijuana were used widely in ancient China, Warf wrote. The first record of the drug’s medicinal use dates to 4000 B.C. The herb was used, for instance, as an anesthetic during surgery, and stories say it was even used by the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung in 2737 B.C. (However, whether Shen Nung was a real or a mythical figure has been debated, as the first emperor of a unified China was born much later than the supposed Shen Nung.)

From China, coastal farmers brought pot to Korea about 2000 B.C. or earlier, according to the book “The Archeology of Korea” (Cambridge University Press, 1993). Cannabis came to the South Asian subcontinent between 2000 B.C. and 1000 B.C., when the region was invaded by the Aryans — a group that spoke an archaic Indo-European language. The drug became widely used in India, where it was celebrated as one of “five kingdoms of herbs … which release us from anxiety” in one of the ancient Sanskrit Vedic poems whose name translate into “Science of Charms.”

From Asia to Europe

Cannabis came to the Middle East between 2000 B.C. and 1400 B.C., and it was probably used there by the Scythians, a nomadic Indo-European group. The Scythians also likely carried the drug into southeast Russia and Ukraine, as they occupied both territories for years, according to Warf’s report. Germanic tribes brought the drug into Germany, and marijuana went from there to Britain during the 5th century with the Anglo-Saxon invasions.


“Cannabis seeds have also been found in the remains of Viking ships dating to the mid-ninth century,” Warf wrote in the study.

Over the next centuries, cannabis migrated to various regions of the world, traveling through Africa, reaching South America in the 19th century and being carried north afterwards, eventually reaching North America.

How did marijuana get to the United States?

After this really long “trip” throughout the pre-modern and modern worlds, cannabis finally came to the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. It arrived in the southwest United States from Mexico, with immigrants fleeing that country during the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1911.

“Many early prejudices against marijuana were thinly veiled racist fears of its smokers, often promulgated by reactionary newspapers,” Warf wrote in his report. “Mexicans were frequently blamed for smoking marijuana, property crimes, seducing children and engaging in murderous sprees.”

Americans laws never recognized the difference between Cannabis sativa L. and Cannabis sativa. The plant was first outlawed in Utah in 1915, and by 1931 it was illegal in 29 states, according to the report.

In 1930, Harry Aslinger became the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) and undertook multiple efforts to make marijuana illegal in all states. In 1937, the Marijuana Tax Act put cannabis under the regulation of the Drug Enforcement Agency, criminalizing possession of the plant throughout the country.

“Today, the federal government still classifies marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance, along with heroin and LSD, indicating it has high potential for abuse and addiction, no accepted medical uses and no safe level of use,” Warf wrote.


Oh well, cannabis users fully understand that taking marijuana is helpful in many ways especially in easing pain, treating depression, insomnia and many other health benefits, and its history proves it. That is why people are protesting for its legalization.

Now that we know this, then we could appreciate now that it is available in the market. So what are you waiting for,subscribe at McChronalds, order now  and have your pot delivered to you at your own convenience!!!

Recreational Marijuana

Last week in Toronto multiple raids took place, confiscating large amounts of marijuana and edibles. The cannabis shops that were involved were claimed to be selling for recreational use.

This raid resulted in 71 criminal charges, and 90 people were arrested.

Police Chief Mark Saunders said that these shops were a general  health concern by not having the needed information in regards to thc content, or where the marijuana and products came from.

There are 18 known dispensaries that are legally working under the health Canada act and will remain to be open for operation.

Mr and Mrs emery are fighting for recreational marijuana use and are fighting for legalization.  Jodie posted on social media today about the queen street raid last week. Jodie and her husband mark Emery are protesting and are still providing cannabis for recreational use for users above the age of 19.

Cannabis Culture was one of the shops that was involved in the raid last week. They have decided to continue operating their dispensary and they will not give up on providing recreational users with the medication they need.

I can hardly wait for legalization to take place.! To know that people are getting criminal charges and being arrested over marijuana is outrages. I am very appreciative to those that are speaking up and fighting for the legalization. without people standing there ground and continuing to do the right thing  by providing marijuana to the sick and healthy our rights would not be herd.

with legalization just around the corner Mr and Mrs Emery are “refusing to be bullied ” by law enforcement.








Driving High

Difference Between Driving High Or Drunk

There has been a noticeable increase in drug-impaired driving incidents in the past couple years. This has lead authority to take further actions when it comes to driving high.

At this moment it is not an easy process to determine how high a driver actually is, and it can be a long going process that perhaps a lot of officers and authority’s don’t want to waste their time on.

With the breathalyzer possibly becoming capable of detecting whether or not a driver is under the influence of marijuana, it will help reduce the time an officer needs to spend trying to figure out how high you are if you’re even high at all!

It all sounds great for officers and authorities out there that are having to deal with these situations of people driving high on a daily basis, but in reality it’s going to cause many fellow marijuana users problems.

Personally I think that the penalty and consequence of driving under the influence of pot is crazy. I dont believe that you should lose your license over it, or have your vehicle towed . Its unfortunate that the younger generation and few bad apples have to spoil it for those that need marijuana to function in life .

If this study goes through and a device is manufactured to work as a alcohol Breathalyzer would, then it could be a big game changer for many people that have been driving high.  Before you know it weed is going to be legal and everywhere and we need to set a good example on how great marijuana is for users.  knowing all the good that pot can do for your mind body and soul, yet its seen as something that could potentially ruin your life ????  how can something so good for you be portrayed as that ?

weed and alcohol are 2 completely different substances and authorities sure do have their hands full with figuring out how to handle and address these situations before it becomes legalized. once this happens i think there is gonna be a large group of people that never would have smoked weed due to the fact it was illegal. you’ll find that now they will be open to trying it and once they realize how great it is for them … well the rest is history 🙂
