In the current society a lot of people debate about legalization of marijuana because it seems as a drug that may have both positive and negative effects but there was a time when growing marijuana was a must.

It was therefore necessary for people to grow this plant so that the government could survive and this is funny because unlike those times, it is now illegal in most regions to grow the plant and there is a lot of stigmatization about the use and growing of the plant.
The government has taken time to research and identify if marijuana can cause the death of a healthy individual after its use. It was found that for an individual to die from the use of marijuana they need to have smoked 800 joints. What was even more interesting from this research is the fact that it was found that the hemp did not kill but the carbon monoxide that would kill that healthy individual. In most countries smoking tobacco cigarettes is not issue but marijuana has been banned because it is assumed that the plant can kill, however from this research, we have established that the use of marijuana cannot kill easily and it can only kill as fast as the use of cigarettes.
