Marijuana, Cannabis, is a plant from the hemp family whose three varieties include Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. The main active chemical found in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which has mind altering effects which its dried and shredded leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers are smoked, ingested or used topically (such as in lip balms, creams, oils, or sprays). Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug according to the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, which means it is deemed to have a high potential for abuse. It cannot be classified in a manner of other drugs, meaning it is not a depressant, stimulant, sedative, etc., because its effects are so varied. While the use, possession and sale of marijuana are illegal under federal law, sixteen states and the District of Columbia have a variety of laws allowing for sale, possession and cultivation of marijuana for specific medical uses and two states (Colorado and Washington) have legalized marijuana for overall recreational use.
