It's not surprising that so many inhaled back in the days before it was illegal.

What IS surprising is that it's still listed as a schedule 1 narcotic.

Hemp and marijuana are not the same.

No, he was ferociously ridiculed for having not inhaled.

IIRC in one of Ronald Kessler's books he reported that Carter's son smoked weed in the white house. I was surprised by some of the early presidents on the list, but then again not. MJ was entirely legal until 1914 when the Harrison Act was signed into law by President Wilson. It was commonly sold over-the-counnter in pharmacies. Presumably it was marketed as an analgesic.

Ironically, I think it was completely legal in 1870.

What else would you expect when we have a federal agency (DEA) thats purpose is to ensure the drug cartels profit and have zero competition?!! If that isnt aiding and abetting a criminal organization, Im not sure what is!!
