100 BC Chinese make paper from cannabis and mulberry.

To smoke or to write, that is the question.

1150: "Moslems use Cannabis to start Europe's first paper mill. Most paper is made from Cannabis for next 850 years. "


So, up until 2000, most paper was made from hemp?  I'd challenge that

Agrees.


"Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington man and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him man, when he come in the door man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man. "

There was nothing wrong with drugs until the Baby Boomers decided to start busting the next generation's balls and making money off of doing so.

Yeah, but they were all men, and golfers, too.
So  in the old English writing, "Puff and pass" was actually "Putt and pass"

William Randolph Hearst tapped into racism using his newspaper empire to protect his paper mill business.  Then the infrastructure of Prohibition didn't just vanish, it retasked from alcohol to "narcotics".

This is the fault of "The Greatest Generation" and those that wish to continue this legacy of prohibition to make a hell of a lot of money.

"2009 Cannabis is returned to class B of the misuse of drugs act in January. The chair of the advosory body the ACMD, Prof Nutt, is forced to resign for criticising the governments descision to move cannabis back to class B."

I found this amusing, but I'm high so YMMV.

The History of the Non-Medical Use of Drugs in the United States
by Charles Whitebread, Professor of Law, USC Law School
A Speech to the California Judges Association 1995 annual conference
...
With help from some people in Salt Lake City, associated with the Mormon Church and the Mormon National Tabernacle in Washington -- with their help and a lot of work we found out what the genesis was of the first marihuana law in this country. Yes, it was directly connected to the history of Utah and Mormonism and it went like this.
...
In 1910, the Mormon Church in synod in Salt Lake City decreed polygamy to be a religious mistake and it was banned as a matter of the Mormon religion. Once that happened, there was a crackdown on people who wanted to live in what they called "the traditional way". So, just after 1910, a fairly large number of Mormons left the state of Utah, and indeed left the United States altogether and moved into northwest Mexico. They wrote a lot about what they wanted to accomplish in Mexico. They wanted to set up communities where they were basically going to convert the Indians, the Mexicans, and what they referred to as "the heathen" in the neighborhood to Mormonism.

By 1914, they had had very little luck with the heathen, but our research shows now beyond question that the heathen had a little luck with them. What happened apparently -- now some of you who may be members of the church, you know that there are still substantial Mormon communities in northwest Mexico -- was that, by and large most of the Mormons were not happy there, the religion had not done well there, they didn't feel comfortable there, they wanted to go back to Utah where there friends were and after 1914 did.

And with them, the Indians had given them marijuana. Now once you get somebody back in Utah with the marijuana it all becomes very easy, doesn't it? You know that the Mormon Church has always been opposed to the use of euphoriants of any kind. So, somebody saw them with the marijuana, and in August of 1915 the Church, meeting again in synod in Salt Lake City decreed the use of marijuana contrary to the Mormon religion and then -- and this is how things were in Utah in those days -- in October of 1915, the state legislature met and enacted every religious prohibition as a criminal law and we had the first criminal law in this country's history against the use of marijuana.
