It took an eternity, but two states have legalized marijuana|It was a long time coming but tow states have finally legalized marijuana. Now, Denver citizens can find the best bubble hash (or their strain of choice) in dispensaries throughout the state. This all may seem revolutionary, but marijuana has a long history|Those fighting for marijuana legalization finally have a couple of victories. The recent legalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado has set the stage for not only expanded medical marijuana dispensaries, but also full on legalization.
For all the controversy surrounding the legalization of marijuana, one thing is certain: for most of recorded history, marijuana was used primarily for medical purposes. The Chinese were first to discover marijuana's medicinal benefits. Emperor Fu Hsi, thought to be the founder of Chinese civilization, said that marijuana contained both yin and yang. The Chinese continued using medicinal marijuana for hundreds of years though no one knows whether or "marijuana dispensaries" existed in ancient China. From there, it spread to India, where it was used as a cure for leprosy. Then there are the claims that Jesus' anointing oil was made with cannabis.
Two thousand years would go by before cannabis was brought to the Americas. Famously, George Washington harvested hemp and according to his agricultural ledgers, he was particularly interested in marijuana's medicinal uses.
Marijuana's bad rap didn't come about until the 1900s. Controversy soon followed and politicians acted with force. The drug war, initiated by Nixon, casted a wide net demonizing every drug, effectively ending medical marijuana in the USA. It took decades for medicinal marijuana to be used again. Of course, dispensaries in California became ubiquitous. Also, these days there are non-medical marijuana dispensaries throughout Denver.Medical medium practitioner support service
