First I would like to clarify that Cannabis is not a "drug" or "narcotic", instead its a very versatile plant that can change the world for the better. Theres been proof that Cannabis is an extremely versatile and misunderstood plant. Many people think that the only use of Cannabis is getting high but they are very wrong! Cannabis has been used for millenniums without it being illegal.
Cannabis or Hemp when its used to make commercial products, has many more uses than people know. The plant can save the environment by replacing fossil fuels as a cheap alternative. You can also make paper and clothes out of the Cannabis. This will help stop deforestation because it takes only a little Hemp to make paper or clothes, and the material is much stronger and lighter than it being made out of trees. Did you also know you could make plastic out of Hemp? This Hemp plastic is 10x lighter than traditional plastic and saves the environment. Hemp can also be used to make cosmetics, conditioner, shampoo, soap, and over 5000+ more commercial products!
You may be asking yourself, "if hemp or cannabis is so good, then why is it illegal". Cannabis hasn't been illegal for a long time. Actually less than 1% of its existence it has been illegal. Did you even know that in the 1600's the American Colonies were allowed to pay their taxes in Cannabis. Also the very American Constitution was written on hemp paper. The only reason cannabis is illegal is because the oil, wood, and other big companies didn't want to lose money and bought their way to make it illegal. They used propaganda and a blitz of yellow journalism in the 30's caused the public to think the herb is bad. Those people told their children and their children told their children. They used a Mexican slang term "Marijuana" to make the public think that the herb is bad.
Cannabis also has many medical properties that can help with many illness's. Cannabis seeds are also one of the most healthy things a human can digest. Its also known as a big stress reliever. It also helps with mental illness's such as schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder, and depression but it may also trigger these illness's. Results vary. It is also almost physically impossible to Overdose in Cannabis. And unlike cigarettes and alcohol cannabis is much more healthy and less addictive.
This herb opens up your mind and helps you see the world in a different view, in a different reality.
