Introduction The cultivation of Marijuana in the United States has been around from the 17th Century. The plant gained fame and was given the courtesy of being documented in a medical reference book. The view by the public of the drug came to a sudden change in the 20th century when certain movements decided to curb its use in the society as it was seen to have adverse effects. Later on, their cries for the regulation of the drug was heard, and laws were passed that prohibited the non-medical use of marijuana. With the passing of these laws, the medical use of the drug was still legal to 1970; then an Act was formulated by the federal government which is known today
