The History of Weed

I don't know many details about this, but apparently marihuana has played a long and complicated role in the history of humanity, and it hasn't always been regarded with the fear and distrust it's received since the Reagan administration.

There have been great books tracing human history from the point of view of our relationship to salt, bananas, and guns, germs and steel, but I'm not sure there is one tracing our history as it intertwines with weed, probably because it's hard for an author to get motivated when he or she is high as a kite :)

Luckily for you, here is a short and amusing animation tracing some of this history.
