clouded such research, since marijuana is illegal and could potentially harm
those involved. Historical Background The first recorded historical reference to
the cannabis plant comes from China around 4000 b.c.e. Small farming
communities there used the plant both to make rope and as a food source. Later,
they began creating textiles out of cannabis, as it produced a fiber that was very
workable and strong. As early as 800 b.c.e., records refer to the plant as a “
sacred grass.” In India ...

approximately 10 nanograms of THC per milliliter of serum. However, the rapid
disappearance of THC from the blood limits the time of detection. For the smoking
of a single marijuana cigarette of standard street strength, the detection time is 3
to 4 hours following last use. The analysis of blood for general drug testing is
therefore not feasible because of the time restriction, but it can be very valuable

coca — so much so that in 2006 the UNODC identified 176 countries or territories
where cannabis is produced. This spread is primarily due to the great adaptability
of the cannabis plant, which grows well in virtually every inhabited region of the
world and can be cultivated with little maintenance in small plots or even indoors.
In addition, unlike most other illicit drugs, cannabis products can be consumed ...

The Netherlands and Canada One of the primary sources of new strains of
cannabis to be introduced to the American gene pool is western Canada, where
the laws against the drug have not been actively enforced, and, more important,
from seed banks in the Netherlands, where the drug enjoys a quasi-legal status
and cannabis-oriented businesses flourish. “Drug tourists” from all over the world
flock to Amsterdam and other Dutch cities. Although so-called coffee shops are
