The demand of marijuana had grown very high that the government forced people to go out so they could meet the demand, at this time the marijuana plant was used to create rope and even fabrics and therefore it was in high demand. The reason also why the government forced people to grow this plant is because it depended on the proceeds made from the trade of the plant to survive and run day-to-day activities which is funny because in the current government there is so much pressure against the growing of the plant and in the regions where it is legal to grow it there’s so much stigmatization from the society when you grow the plant.

It was found that for an individual to die from the use of marijuana they need to have smoked 800 joints. Do you know that even if you smoke the 800 joints the drug itself will not kill you but the carbon monoxide that you smoke will. In most countries smoking tobacco cigarettes is not issue but marijuana has been banned because it is assumed that the plant can kill, however from this research, we have established that the use of marijuana cannot kill easily and it can only kill as fast as the use of cigarettes.
