Indifferent History

Marijuana has been illegal for less than 1% of the time that it’s been in use. Its known uses go back further than 7,000 B.C. and it was legal as recently as when Ronald Reagan was a boy. source.

Something I thought about today.

History will not even show that we didn't smoke weed. Because people have been smoking for hundreds of thousands of years - only recently, in the recent century, have we gone out of out way to make it illegal and start this nonsense war on drugs. so because we have been not smoking weed for only a blip - and i mean blip - of time, history will not even record this time as having a prohibition on marijuana. and when i say history, i don't mean the history books that will be written for my future, theoretical kids. i mean like in the grand scheme of things. the fact that we didn't smoke weed, while everyone else in the history of time has, will be overlooked, lost in the majority. no one will care. no one will assure us that it was the right decision. we will never know if it even did anything beneficial for us, or prevented some kind of real danger. because sooner or later, history will go back on its course, and law and society will loosen its grip on marijuana legislation. it's just what will happen.

Marijuana has been around and in use since 7000 B.C.

2010 - it's only our loss.
