Cannabis is one plant that has been in use over the centuries in various forms be it as medicine or as a truth drug or simply as a mean of enjoyment. Mostly, those familiar with it are quick to embrace a puff or two, those who take it regularly cannot live without it while there are those who have been known to find it outright repulsive.
Having transformed itself from a medicine to an abusive drug, cannabis has had a very interesting journey throughout the world through time.
Also called marijuana, its scientific name is Cannabis Sativa and it was in the year 2727 before Christ that the Chinese first used it as medicine. After it reached Europe in 500 AD by way of Africa and India, Columbus brought it with him to the new world in the year 1492 and then federal law after years of use by the public, bans it in the year 1937.
