The debate about this jagged plant has never been discussed since it was declared a dangerous plant by the United States Federal Government in 1970. While in Indonesia, this plant was declared a forbidden group. However, along with the advancement of medical science, marijuana began to emerge as a plant that was believed to be a treasure of treatment and even became a food with fantastic value.

Marijuana or what is called in scientific terms as Cannabis Saliva has been declared legal in 29 American states, especially in the district of Columbia for medical use. Even the majority of Americans also support the legality of marijuana for recreational use or personal use. Several other countries are now starting to review the legality of marijuana in their countries, such as Uruguay, which has decided to legalize it and Portugal to criminalize it. Meanwhile, Israel, Canada, and the Netherlands have special programs to use marijuana in the medical field. Even in Canada, now you can find many licensed producers Canada.

The essence of these compounds can change the mind as if floating. Raphael, as reported by National Geographic, spent his entire life studying marijuana and called the plant “a treasure of drugs waiting to be discovered”.

After being legalized in a number of states in America, marijuana has metamorphosed into a food item that is most sought after and enjoyed by upper-class American professional women. Marijuana is used as a cooking ingredient by a number of chefs who produce fantastic, prized special dishes.
