Cannabis grew in North America during prehistoric times perhaps brought here by early explorers and migrating birds. The Ancient Mound Builders’ archeological finds yielded evidence of clay pipes containing hemp wrapped in hemp cloth dating from about 400 B.C.
Marijuana seeds were brought to America from England in 1632 by the Pilgrims. By 1762, Virginia farmers were penalized for not growing this plant, as it was such an important useful and economic crop. George Washington grew it at Mount Vernon in 1765. He also pulled up the male plants which increases the potency of psychoactive female plants. Thomas Jefferson advised its cultivation. In 1850, marijuana was America’s third largest crop. Between 1840 and 1900 over a hundred published papers recommended Marijuana as medicine. The resin is most concentrated on the flowering tops of the female plants. Marijuana buds and leaves are smoked. Marijuana is not soluble in water as a tea, though is sometimes eaten in foods, though must be cooked in some type of oil for 15 minutes. Tincture of cannabis is used medicinally, though less psychoactive. Hashish is marijuana resin mixed with fat and honey and compressed into cakes.
Ofcourse Not, said the team leader of TGM when a boy asked him “I smoke weed every now and then. I have high moral values and am very intelligent. I feel somewhat guilty about smoking though, even though it relaxes me and helps to calm my nerves,does it makes me a bad person?
Here in this case the first party was the anonymous guy and the 2nd party was the TGM executive. But, what if , the same question was asked to some other guy or girl who is not a part of TGM?
Not to worry !
You will get two answers
The legalistic side: These people tell you that it is against the law and have absolutely no clue what marijuana actually is and just blindly follows the governement on whatever they say. If it is illegal then it must be bad for you and others around you so if you smoke it you are a bad person and they judge you harshly for it even though they have never actually looked up anything about marijuana and dont know that it is 100% natural. All they know is that it is classified as a (schedule 1 <- seriously) drug so you should not have anything to do with it.
These people are not very educated and just listen to what people tell them
You can get
The smart answers: The people that know that this is a 100% natural plant that grows naturally on our earth. You know that there is nothing wrong with this plant and even after heavy smoking (or any other form of ingesting THC) for a few years there is still nothing wrong with you based on THC alone. These people have done their research beyond what the government told them and were smart enough to realize that this “drug” is just like any other plant on our planet (arguable better at how green it is and the broad category of how many great uses this “drug” has) These are the people whose answer you should listen to because they know what they are talking about. They also realize that smoking weed is more healthy than alcohol and tobacco. Drugs that are still legal. (Actually a study shows that heroin and cocaine are safer than alcohol and tobacco. Honestly look up http://www.cannabisnews.com)
No smoking weed does not make you a bad person. It makes you a smart person and all haters can gtfo because they dont know what they are talking about. The government tells you it is bad and they have no scientific evidence to back it up. It is still illegal though just because it was illegal before… Seems like a dumb reason. If you look up why this plant is illegal it is because it was threatening the lumber companies because 1 acre of hemp can produce 5 times the amount of paper as lumber can. So what do people do when something is threatening to take away their money? Well obviously they find a way to stop it even if it is better for everybody else they realize that they themselves wont make as much money so they team up with other companies (like dupont) and get the drug to be illegal. Then it continues with Nixon telling the country that marijuana use leads to communist thoughts and when nixon was president you did not want to be a communist…
The only way you should feel bad about smoking marijuana is if you feel bad that you have grass, or trees, or flowers growing in your front yard. 100% natural plants that cannot hurt you.
