The Origin, History, and Future of Marijuana

Our Personal take on Marijuana
'God put this here for me and you, take advantage man'. We believe that not only will legalizing marijuana be good for the people, the community, our state, and the federal government. But also the money that would be generated from the sales of marijuana would get pumped into the school systems and I think we all agree Hawaii can use it. This is just an amazing plant and a gift for us, people all around the word should be allowed to enjoy its wonders.

The Origin of Marijuana

The Origin of Marijuana

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 non-psychoactive form of cannabis, and is used in manufacturing products such as oil, cloth and fuel. ~ Live ScienceOld Weed Photo

The History of Marijuana

10,000-year History of Marijuana use in the World
8,000+ BCE Use of hemp cord in pottery identified at ancient village site dating back over 10,000 years, located in the area of modern day Taiwan. Finding hemp use and cultivation in this date range puts it as one of the first and oldest known human agriculture crops. As explained by Richard Hamilton in the 2009 Scientific American article on sustainable agriculture "Modern humans emerged some 250,000 years ago, yet agriculture is a fairly recent invention, only about 10,000 years old ... Agriculture is not natural; it is a human invention. It is also the basis of modern civilization." This point was also touched on by Carl Sagan in 1977 when he proposed the possibility that marijuana may have actually been world's first agricultural crop, leading to the development of civilization itself. ~ Advanced Holistic Health

The Future of Weed

The Future of Marijuana
Americans are feeling optimistic about the future of marijuana in the U.S., with a majority predicting legalization to sweep the nation within their lifetimes. According to a new poll from Bloomberg Politics published Friday, 58 percent of Americans see the U.S. legalizing weed in all 50 states within the next 20 years. Twenty-six percent of them said it will happen in just 10. Researchers found that while most respondents said they saw marijuana legalization as inevitable, nearly a third of those surveyed said it would never happen. The drug remains illegal at the federal level. However, 23 states and the District of Columbia have legalized weed for medical or recreational purposes. ~ International Business Times
