History have governments tried to stop people using it and opening their minds. Back then they didn’t have the knowledge or didn’t care about the heavy side effect it causes. Don’t compare todays to those living in ancient. The Never underestimate an old woman with brush and palette shirt cigarette was smoking like fashion in a few decades back but since we all know its side effect we don’t encourage it now though it is less harmful than cannabis. We are evolving quick. Esp. Americans shouldn’t be allowed this otherwise they will shoot to kill themselves and then, in the end, they will blame mental illness if the perpetrator is white.
