    habitual smokers of marijuana. While in United
    State recreational marijuana use gain limited
    popularity, many historians believed that Mexican
    Revolution and the institution of Prohibition led
    to a boom in the popularity of recreational
    cannabis. It was 19th century that recreational
    marijuana use started on a small scale on
    northeastern United States with the opening of
    many Turkish smoking parlors because of the
    growing popularity of recreational use of
    marijuana the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and its
    director, began drafting a bill to tax marijuana
    did an all out smear campaign begin, which
    eventually led to its national ban. California is
    the first State to criminalize the use of
    marijuana. Since then the historical reputation
    of marijuana as a medicinal and industrial
    application has been tarnish, its been over
