Evidence of people inhaling cannabis smoke can be found as far back as the 3000 BC as indicated by charred cannabis seeds found in a ritual brazier at an ancient burial site in present day Romania. The most famous users of cannabis were the ancient Hindus of India and Nepal. The herb was called ganjika in Sanskrit.

 

Cannabis became illegal in the United States in 1937 due to Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. Several theories try to explain why it is illegal in most Western societies. A famous writer, Jack Herer, argues that the economic interests of the paper and chemical industry were a driving force to make it illegal. A large American news program, 60 minutes, blame the cotton industry, another explanation is that beneficial effects of hemp would lower the profit of pharmaceutical companies which therefore have a vital interest to keep cannabis illegal.
