Legal history of cannabis in the United States

The legal history of cannabis in the United States relates to the regulation of marijuana use for medical or recreational purposes in the United States. Regulations and restrictions on the sale of Cannabis sativa as a drug began as early as 1619. Increased restrictions and labeling of cannabis as a poison began in many states from 1906 onward, and outright prohibitions began in the 1920s. By the mid-1930s Cannabis was regulated as a drug in every state, including 35 states that adopted the Uniform State Narcotic Drug Act.[1]

In the 1970s, many places in the United States started to abolish state laws and other local regulations that banned possession or sale of cannabis. The same thing happened with cannabis sold as medical cannabis in the 1990s. All this is in conflict with federal laws; cannabis is a Schedule I drug according to the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, which classified cannabis as having high potential for abuse, no medical use, and not safe to use without medical supervision. Multiple efforts to reschedule cannabis under the Act have failed, and the United States Supreme Court has ruled in United States v. Oakland Cannabis Buyers' Cooperative and Gonzales v. Raich that the federal government has a right to regulate and criminalize cannabis, even for medical purposes 

DOn't smoke cannibus without a prescription.

Cannibus is like the 'Bat-Flower', from the Batman Begins film.

Tips- Cannabis is a plant like tea tree leaves. It can be boiled and drank like tea, then dried and smoked.

Instead of putting cannabis in the bowl of the pipe, it's better to pack the inside of the pipe with cannabis and light the empty bowl.

It's usually always good to drink water if one feels like it's been poisoned.

Politics- Since so much history of cannabis so far has been "illegal activity" (before it was legal. Some states it's still illegal.) smoking cannabis legaly might be a "cross-fuze" for some types of Government Police agencies and private security groups (like neighborhood watch).

Private security Public Protocol

If cannabis smoke is smelled, investigate and consider the area a crime zone.

INVESTIGATION: Talk to the cannabis smoker and see if it's safe to record "an illegal sales transaction" before placing suspects under citizen's arrest.

Prescription Reccomendation holders may purchase cannabis, but not sell it.


Idealy, I would like to see "cannabis cafes" built where all types of cannabis infuzed foods and beverages may be purchased, consumed and even smoked. In a relaxed environment, there should be consumption limits and encouragement to "take a taxi home", like a bar.

Butane lighting of pipes makes the smoker inhale butane. Better than a lighter might be a white-hot-metal rod, heated by coals.The best type of cannabis smoking apparatus might be cannabis nugs that are rolled inside a moist cannabis leaf (instead of paper), and then dried.Cannabis smoking increases apetite.SInce "paper wraps"  cannabis cigarette smoke has additional burnt paper smoke, pipe-smoke is more pure.

International and some out-of-state tourists may not legally purchase or use cannabis. 

 In Hebrew the word "Kush" means African.

In the Movie "How High" the African character died and he turned into a marijuana plant.

"Kush" is a type of marijuana.

In L.A. there's a Mexican Food place called "Plancha:Taco joint" on 3rd st.

Do they grow cannabis in the dead-bodies of Africans as they are harvested??? Probably not.

   What a Cultural Misconception.

What a terrible thing, what a fear-maker.


 PHILOSOPHY: If/When all the states are green, then none will be green.

BECAUSE: Green relates difference.
