Yes, absolutely. Cannabis was demonized in the 1930s and it was given the name "marijuana" to further turn the public against it. The Hearst newspapers picked up the story, and spread the lies about it nationwide. That was a crime. The federal government scheduled it as the worst drug possible, in the same class as heroin, depriving citizens of a wonderful drug which could save millions of lives a year. Google a documentary "Marijuana Miracle Cure" and you will be amazed about the documented cases of people who have been cured with advanced cancer and even Alzheimer's disease. You won't see doctors recommending it, because they are too busy getting rich prescribing chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
