You can already see it: cavemen making monkey-stoned rock paintings and wall drawings. Yet it is theoretically possible that scientists recently discovered 3 kilometers above sea level on the Tibetan plateau.

People started using cannabis early in prehistoric times. People soon discovered that the green plant could be used and processed in various ways. The seeds are a good source of fatty acids and proteins and the fibers of the stems were made into yarn or textiles. Moreover, the flowers have been used for thousands of years for the healing effect. That is no different in 2019: the smart head and coffee shops do good business. And there is a booming cannabis business worldwide. So we are actually going back to prehistory. Old-fashioned becomes new-fashioned again.
