Cannabis and the Pope.

Post by Lance Kennedy » Sat May 12, 2018 12:11 am

Cannabis was used as a herbal remedy in Europe until 1484 AD, when Pope Innocent VIII declared it to be an 'unholy sacrament.'

So now you know who to blame.

Totally legal and used in the USA until the 1900's. I have a dim recollection of some show saying MJ was the first Million Dollar industry in the hemp I think. Lots of products claim that.....tobacco, whale oil, cotton.... Some confusion maybe about the industry vs individuals?
