Marijuana has been used as an substance to achieve euphoria since ancient times; it was described in a compendium of Chinese medical traditionally considered to date from 2737 B.C. Its usage spread from China to India and then to N. Africa and reached Europe at least as early as A.D. 500.
The first direct reference to a marijuana (canabis) product as a psychoactive agent dates from 2737 BC, in the writings of the emperor of China Shen Nung. The focus was on the power of Canabis as a medication for illness such as rheumatism, gout, malaria, and oddly enough, absent-mindedness. Mention were written of the intoxicating properties, but the medicinal properties were considered more important. In India though, it was clearly a recreational usage. The Muslims also used it recreationally because alcohol was banned by the Koran. It was the Muslims who introduced hashish, whose popularity extended quickly throughout 12th century Persia (Iran) and North Africa
Marijuana situation in Florida
Marijuana: Marijuana, both domestically grown and imported, is available throughout the whole state of Florida. Domestic inside cultivation is a significant industry throughout Florida state. The availability of plant hot houses and large commercial nurseries allow traffickers ready access to the necessary equipment for indoor grow operations, particularly in southwest Florida. The Fort Myers RO reports that individuals that gets the marijuana to grow are aware of federal threshold limits and are growing less than 100 marijuana plants per grow to minimize the risk of federal penalties. Canabis is imported into the Jacksonville area from the U.S. southwest border, Canada and Jamaica, by any available transportation method. The Panhandle region continues to be a transit zone for canabis from Mexico. Seizures are happen along Interstate-10 from trucks, rental vehicles and trailers traveling east into Florida. Mexican commercial grade marijuana are still brought into the Orlando area from the southwest border. It is concealed in compartments that are hidden in passenger cars and large commercial vehicles, in luggage on commercial air flights or concealed within freight shipments.
Is it dangerous to smoke marijuana and drive?
Yes. Cannabis makes it more difficult to concentrate, pay attention and tell how far away things are, for up to five hours after you use it. It also makes your hands less steady and decreases your reaction time; this means you wouldn’t be able to react as rapidly to a sudden, unexpected emergency. Your risks increase when you combine smoking cannabis with drinking alcohol. All these things might make it more difficult to drive safely. There is no roadside breathalyzer test for cannabis. But specially trained authority can tell if you are high, and you could be charged.
