Paranoia over pot and medical marijuana leaves most countries high and dry

The level of paranoia over a plant with a four-thousand year history of serving as a curative – while being cheap as dirt, not requiring pesticides to grow in a range of climates, that can be used to make more than 50,000 items, and that can be woven with resins to become more than 20 times stronger than steel, is downright laughable. Any country that has started at least a medical marijuana tourism industry is laughing all the way to the bank, however.
