Marijuana has been used for a very long time and there is a time when marijuana was not only legal but it was illegal not to grow marijuana. In 1619 people were forced to grow marijuana in Jamestown. The demand of marijuana had grown very high that the government forced people to go out so they could meet the demand, at this time the marijuana plant was used to create rope and even fabrics and therefore it was in high demand. The reason also why the government forced people to grow this plant is because it depended on the proceeds made from the trade of the plant to survive and run day-to-day activities which is funny because in the current government there is so much pressure against the growing of the plant and in the regions where it is legal to grow it there’s so much stigmatization from the society when you grow the plant.
The government has taken time to research and identify if marijuana can cause the death of a healthy individual after its use. The research found that it takes around 800 joints a healthy individual to die out of the smoke of hemp. It is even more interesting to know that even after you smoke with 800 joints the drug itself will not contributed to the death but rather it’s the carbon monoxide that you will have inhaled. A lot stigmatization has surrounded the use of this drug because people think that the smoke of this drug may kill but it is evident that the use of marijuana is no different from the smoking of tobacco.
