You don’t confront nothing, until it becomes something.
Cannabis had never come up in Western civilization (as an intoxicant), it was used for ropes and such, but not for getting stoned by whites, it was rejected as an intoxicant in the ancient times, forbidden by old Western Culture, it was confined to be an Eastern/Arab thing.
The parts of the world that have been cannabis drenched for 1000s of years, are all very much like what one would expect from cannabis cultures, very unlike the alcohol based Western Civilization world.
perhaps you might want to rethink that
Nearly two pounds of still-green plant material found in a 2,700-year-old grave in the Gobi Desert has just been identified as the world's oldest marijuana stash, according to a paper in the latest issue of the Journal of Experimental Botany.
A barrage of tests proves the marijuana possessed potent psychoactive properties and casts doubt on the theory that the ancients only grew the plant for hemp in order to make clothing, rope and other objects.
They apparently were getting high too.
Lead author Ethan Russo told Discovery News that the marijuana "is quite similar" to what's grown today.
"We know from both the chemical analysis and genetics that it could produce THC (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid synthase, the main psychoactive chemical in the plant)," he explained, adding that no one could feel its effects today, due to decomposition over the millenia.
Russo served as a visiting professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Botany while conducting the study. He and his international team analyzed the cannabis, which was excavated at the Yanghai Tombs near Turpan, China. It was found lightly pounded in a wooden bowl in a leather basket near the head of a blue-eyed Caucasian man who died when he was about 45. (source: Discovery Channel)
