Medical Marijuana Dispensary

Medical Marijuana Dispensary

The fight for marijuana just made progress. Now that Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana, the stage is set for more medical marijuana dispensaries around the country.

The decision to legalize marijuana may seem controversial, but marijuana has been used for centuries. The Chinese were first to discover marijuana's medicinal benefits. Emperor Fu Hsi, considered the founder of civilization in China, said that marijuana contained both yin and yang. The Chinese consumed medicinal marijuana for centuries though no one knows whether or "marijuana dispensaries" existed in ancient China. From there, it spread to India, where it was used as a cure for leprosy. Then there are the claims that Jesus' anointing oil was made with cannabis.

It would take another 2000 years before European settlers shipped marijuana to the Americas. And most have heard the stories about some of the founding fathers growing marijuana plants.

Marijuana's bad rap didn't come about until the 1900s. Something needed to be done, or at least, that was the common opinion back then. The drug war, initiated by President Nixon, targeted every drug, effectively ending medical marijuana in the USA. It took decades for medicinal marijuana to be used again. Of course, dispensaries in California became ubiquitous. Also, these days there are non-medical marijuana dispensaries throughout Denver.
