How ironic is the fact that the most dangerous thing about cannabis is getting caught with some.
How many are aware that it used to be illegal NOT to grow it.

In 1619, America’s first marijuana law was enacted at Jamestown Colony, Virginia, “ordering” all farmers to “make tryal of “(grow) Indian hempseed. More mandatory (must-grow) hemp cultivation laws were enacted in Massachusetts in 1631, in Connecticut in 1632 and in the Chesapeake Colonies into the mid-1700s.

Even in England, the much-sought-after prize of full British citizenship was bestowed by a decree of the crown on foreigners who would grow cannabis, and fines were often levied against those who refused.

Cannabis hemp was legal tender (money) in most of the Americas from 1631 until the early 1800s. Why? To encourage American farmers to grow more.1

You could pay your taxes with cannabis hemp throughout America for over 200 years.2

You could even be jailed in America for not growing cannabis during several periods of shortage, e.g., in Virginia between 1763 and 1767.

I’m wondering if Colombia currently has similar laws in effect, but for the Coca plant?

Cannabis might seem a safe drug, but it slowly chips away at the DNA of humans. It's continued use around the world will be the cause of the extinction of the human rasae as the gene pool is irreversibly damaged to the point that 100% of the human race will be retarded. Then it's game over. Colorado is already experiencing an explosion in mental health issues, directly related to the use of cannabis. Unfortunately I have first hand knowledge from family member of the use of this drug, and the severe mental health damage it causes.
