I read in the dictionary that marijuana is an Indian hemp, cannabis sativa. It is used as a hallucinogen. It causes hallucinations, false notions, beliefs or impressions, illusions, delusions, wandering of the mind.

I doubt that it has curative powers, as some claim. It may merely make a person forget their ailment.

In my opinion, living on junk foods causes ailments, since the body lacks nutrients it needs to function properly. Fresh vegetables and fruits, fresh meats — nothing in packages, bottles or cans — nothing with preservatives, additives, nitrates or chemical dyes — that is what Americans need, not pills or marijuana.
