Marijuana is a green, brown, or gray mixture of dried, shredded
Leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers of the hemp plant. Marijuana is the name
given to the plant cannabis sativa. The legalization of marijuana would not
only bring the pointless bickering to a screeching halt, but also tend to those
who need relief from pain and certain diseases. All forms of marijuana are
Mind-altering drugs. The ingredient that gets you high in marijuana is called
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. The marijuana plant also contains
More than 400 other chemicals.
Marijuana can be taken many different ways including making special
tea brews with the leaves, smoked in a pipe or a joint, or consumed through
the mouth in foods. When a person is on marijuana they may feel dizzy and

bloodshot eyes. They may also have trouble remembering what just
happened recently. When the affects fad the user may fell very sleepy or
tired. When it is smoked it can make the person not feel pain or forget about

Marijuana was first cultivated in China around 4,000 BC Today
marijuana is cultivated all over the world. China, Korea, Italy,

Marijuana is the most frequently used illegal drug in the U.S. Some
people say that marijuana is a gateway drug, that’s why they will not
legalize it. But yet, scientist have no proof that marijuana is a gateway drug.
Scientists also have no proof that marijuana relates to any mental illnesses.
