Marijuana is banned in most countries, starting with the United States. States started regulating the plant from 1906 to the mid-1930’s.
The 1936 Geneva Trafficking Conventions was a treaty aimed at a worldwide ban in the cultivation, manufacture, and distribution of cannabis products along with coca and opium. Not all countries got on board with this project, however, this is what lead to the regulation in much of Europe.
In 1970, the Controlled Substances Act was passed in the United States, which banned marijuana from all forms of use, including medical.
In recent years changes to marijuana regulation have been made, first allowing medicinal use of the plant, followed by full legalization for medicinal and recreational use.
