1997, a hemp rope dating back to 26,900 BC was found in former
Czechoslovakia, making it the oldest known object to be associated
with cannabis. Since that time, hemp has played an important role in
humanity’s development. For thousands of years marijuana was not
only legal, but an important crop among cultures throughout history,
and held commercial, medicinal, and spiritual value.
