Cannabis has been around for approximately 10,000 years. It has been given different names as it spread across the world, and historians speculate that many cultures added additional ingredients to the drug. For example, the Spanish called it hashish, and it was suspected to contain 50 percent opium. The medical name for cannabis is astragalus, and the term marijuana in the United States was borrowed from Spain. China was the first nation to discover cannabis and its intoxicating affects. In 2737 BC, the emperor of China claimed it had great healing effects. He wrote that it had the ability to be used as a medication for ´´gout, malaria, [and] absent-mindedness”. It would be introduced to the Muslims in 12th century Persia, which is current day Iran. Before it was banned by the Koran, it was used recreationally with alcoholic beverages. In 1545, the Spanish brought cannabis to America. Cannabis and tobacco became the main cash crops. It was used recreationally, and many products contained cannabis in them, including ´´fiber, paper, nautical use, lamp oil, food, etc”. Some medications in America were concocted with cannabis. In the 1920s, marijuana became a popular recreational drug. Historians claim that the surge in popularity was attributed to prohibition. Cannabis clubs began to surface in big cities. They were called tea pads, and there was widespread marijuana usage. Cannabis appeared in a book of medications called Pharmacopeia: A Book of Medications from 1850-1942, and it was characterized as a medication for all types of ailments. It was considered to help many illnesses, such as ´´labor pain, nausea, and rheumatism”. That reference book had a list of over 100 medical uses for cannabis. However, doctors were not certain of dosages or how to emit the substance. Why was it outlawed? This audiobook will discuss that and more. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lorri Heneveld.

It has been known as an unlawful and prohibited drug for an extensive period of time.
