Narrator: It's been used by human beings since the dawn of time. Early man's diet undoubtedly included Cannabis, since it grew prolifically in Africa and Asia and was highly nourishing with its protein and omega-3 content. Marihuana may well have been the first cultivated plant.
Narrator: Queen Victoria, who lent her name to the repressive Victorian era, was also a bit of a pothead. The Queen found that cannabis was the only remedy that helped her painful menstrual cramps.
Jeffrey Hergenrather - Himself (M.D.): The problem remains though, that nobody in Congress wants to be labelled "soft on drugs." But as the states continue to legalize the medicinal use of cannabis, I believe there will be a tipping-point where the nation will be ready to change the law and allow people *their right* to use cannabis freely.
