Marijuana is not generally legal in America. However, some communities are reversing that decision and permitting consumption but not sales... which doesn't make sense. How are you going to consume it if you can't buy it? Answer: a lot of potheads - marijuana smokers grow their own. |
Within the last few years, marijuana has been deemed medically beneficial for people with heart conditions or those suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among other ills. Thus medical marijuana is legal, but the user must carry his doctor's permission slip and show it on demand.
There is talk of legalizing marijuana in every state. As far as I know, that is still being debated in every state across the country.
FUN FACT: marijuana is Spanish for Marie Jane, a girl's name. I have no idea how it came to be named that.
NUMBERED NAMES: I believe it was Ratfink that correctly said monarchs have numbers after their names to distinguish which Elisabeth or Henry is being discussed. The Pope also has a numbered name: John, Benedict, etc...
FUN FACT: In the old days people did not have a family name and a given name. They were identified by a given name - Paul, Marie, Elizabeth; and the region they came from. Jesus of Nazareth is a popular example. As more children were born in the same region and names were few, people started identifying themselves by their trade: Cooper (barrel maker), for example, or other attributes. Thus, the barrel maker's son, Paul, became Paul Cooper.
Names that start with 'Fitz...': Fitzpatrick, Fitzgibbon, and so on: 'Fitz' means 'son of'. Thus you might meet a Samuel Fitzpatrick and know that that person is Sam, Patrick's son.
I hope you are not bored by all this extra information. It might be handy knowing how names came to be, just like how names in China come about.
