because it was deemed by the federal government to have no medicinal value ,i guess, check out the history of marijuana on history channel
America's first marijuana laws were enacted at Jamestown Colony, Virginia in 1619. A law "ordering" all farmers to grow Indian hemp was enacted. There were several other "must… grow" laws over the next 200 years (you could be jailed for not growing hemp during times of shortage in Virginia between 1763 and 1767), and most of that time, hemp was legal tender taxes were paid with hemp. Hemp was such a critical crop for a number of purposes, including essential war requirements such as rope, clothing and canvas that the government went out of its way to encourage growth. The United States Census of 1850 counted 8,327 hemp "plantations" with a minimum 2,000-acre farm growing cannabis hemp for cloth, canvas and even the cordage used for baling cotton. Now cotton comes into the picture. The revolution in Mexico in 1910 spilled over the U.S.border, with General Pershing's army clashing with bandit Pancho Villa. Mexico produced much of the hemp coming into the US at that time and the U.S. cotton producers used the hatred of Mexico to further their own agenda. Utah in 1910 outlawed the growing of hemp for any reason followed by Wyoming in 1915, Texas in 1919 and the rest of the US by 1927.
Recreational use of Marijuana in the United States was made illegal in 1937 by the Marijuana Tax Act of that same year.
Marijuana is used illegally by millions of Americans everyday. It is used for recreation ad to get high
You'd be surprised how easy it is to grow it. I'm afraid that skunk is as American as the dollar bill.
It was the federal government. The Marijuana plant would easily have outdone most modern antidepressants and pain killers, and the fibers from the plant can easily make paper …better and more environmentally friendlier than trees. Because this would put many of the said organizations and businesses, out of business, they made it illegal, and blame it on it's THC contents.
it first was put under the books as a tax. meaning if you had marijuana and it wasnt taxed it was illegal.but the federal gov. never gave any taxes. im not sure whe…n, but it was placed into the fda's scheduling system as a schedule 1 narcotic. in the same schedule as mushrooms, acid, and other various drugs.
yes, marijuana iz illegal in all da states except for california Technically it is because they have the tax papers for it but there locked away and the government never gave …them to to public.
It is illegal on the federal level. Federal trumps state. California may say it's OK, but a federal agent can still arrest you and charge you because of the federal law. C…urrently, it is scheduled as a Class I Schedule Drug under federal law.
Anything unless it is in a perscribed medicine by a doctor, although even then I would be suspicious...
medical weed which is legal only if given by a doctor is different from regular weed. medical weed has less THC so when the doctors give it to you your not high as hell.… people use marijuana illegally by 1.not getting it from a doctor 2.people sell it on the streets 3.people smoke regular marijuana which gets you higher than necessary
It is a plant and grows in most temperate zones of the world. Hemp has been used for many centuries for fabric and ropes.
Alot to many to list a few thousand or so. The first Constitution was written on hemp paper.
It became illegal in 1937.
Depending in where you live; first offense, less than 50 grams results in conditional discharge. That means fines and possibility of probation. Worst case scenario is up to 6 …months in jail.
