still writing: a history of cannabis that is not soaked in blood

The war against drug trafficking has influenced world politics. Without a doubt, the Latin American countries are the ones that have suffered most in this war because they have incredible agricultural potential, and this led to the cultivation of plants such as coca in their territories, which turned into cocaine after a chemical procedure. If we look at history, cannabis was cultivated in many Latin American countries in the 70s and 80s - especially in Colombia- and was illegally exported to countries like the US; the people who lived first-hand the consequences of drug trafficking would have never imagined the panorama we are experiencing today; for example, the manufacturing of cannabis-based products and big brands betting on the industry, since this is what cannabis has become.

cannabis speaks german

Currently, millions of people use cannabis in Europe, although the laws are a little strict in different countries.
