(Natural News) About a hundred years ago, marijuana began to be banned in one state after the other, until finally the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 effectively banned its use nationwide.

Simultaneously, the FDA has just approved the first cannabis-derived prescription drug, made from purified cannabidiol (CBD).
