In the early 20th century, cannabis started being criminalized in several countries, including United States. During the 60's and 70's, cannabis experienced an increase in popularity thanks to the hippie and Rastafari movements, starting a series of campaigns to legalise and decriminalise marijuana on most countries.

in reply to Jankovic

people who make their entire lives revolve around weed are the fucking worst, even to people who are moderate about the stuff

chances are if you listen to a lot of music, 90% of those musicians you listen to get stoned as fuck and support it (like david bowie or any of the beatles) but because they dont go around talking about it people find them interesting as human beings.

its all about knowing when to talk about it and when not to.
