Aussie marijuana historical facts
One of the best Indica strains in history

From way back to the native Americans to the modern-day, marijuana has been a very powerful and meaningful plant, from being used as a paper, rope or building material it is extremely versatile.

Being made illegal in Australia in 1935 firstly by the state of Victoria, the people and the government have slowly but surely rediscovered all the benefits of this beautiful plant.

Many people still to this day believe it was only outlawed because of the cotton industry with the mega mogul fearing the hemp trade would sweep away their customers and businesses, which it very well could have and should have. With it being much easier to grow and with a larger yield and much more versatile it is the obvious choice for paper, clothes and building materials it’s a shame the top 1% got the win that time but times are coming to a turnaround in later years.

By the time the 1970s came around marijuana became very popular and pretty accepted by everyone excluding the law, the likes of INXS and AC/DC helped a young and free rebellious era fuel the recreational use of marijuana with approximately 50% of intoxicated people choosing the devils lettuce over alcohol.
