Cannabis Propaganda. That would be an excellent name for a band.
Originally though Cannabis was made illegal in the US roughly 100 dred years ago because the white racists in power did not like the hispanics or negros comming into the US via South America who enjoyed smoking Cannabis. So a histiria smear campaign was set up to ridicule GODS wonderful plant. Also the Du'Pont family paid back handers to the then government to out law hemp, so that they could make a new industry out of petrolium based products.
but smoke too much cannabis is bad, but it's like drink too much coffee or beer.
Now since then all US governments have leaned on govenments from around the planet to make Cannabis illegal. And most complied.
You obviously aren't looking hard enough major_eh, the lungs are right at the back.
Jaroslaw Lasota was arrested after gardaí searched his house at Latchford Park, Clonee. He told them the plants were for the production of oil and seeds, which he said he thought were legal in Ireland because they are freely available to buy online.
A Polish man caught with 700 cannabis plants in his attic claimed that he didn’t know it was illegal to grow the plant in Ireland, a court has heard.
Patrick Marrinan SC, defending, told Judge Catherine Murphy that his client no longer stood over his original claims that he thought it was legal, but that it was “the only lie he told” and he has since cooperated with the gardai.
Judge Murphy refused Mr Marrinan’s request to give a fully suspended sentence. She said that Lasota “can’t escape the fact that he was a significant contributor to current serious drug culture in this country, although at lesser end of scale”.
Lasota (43) pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to cultivation of cannabis and possession of cannabis for sale or supply on May 31, 2012. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
