History

  • Use for medicinal purposes dates back at least 3,000 years.

  • It was introduced into Western medicine in 1839 by W.B. O’Shaughnessy, a surgeon who learned of its medicinal properties while working in India for the British East India Company. Its use was promoted for reported analgesic, sedative, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and anticonvulsant effects.

  • In 1937, the U.S. Treasury Department introduced the Marihuana Tax Act. This Act imposed a levy of $1 per ounce for medicinal use of Cannabis and $100 per ounce for nonmedical use. (The AMA opposed this tax because they believed that objective evidence that Cannabis was harmful was lacking and that passage of the Act would impede further research into its medicinal worth).

  • In 1942, Cannabis was removed from the U.S. Pharmacopoeia because of persistent (unfounded) concerns about its potential to cause harm.

  • In 1951, Congress passed the Boggs Act, which for the first time included Cannabis with narcotic drugs.

  • In 1970, with the passage of the Controlled Substances Act, marijuana was classified by Congress as a Schedule I drug. (Schedule I substances include heroin, LSD, mescaline, and methaqualone).

  • Despite its designation as having no medicinal use, Cannabis was distributed by the U.S. government to patients on a case-by-case basis under the Compassionate Use Investigational New Drug program established in 1978. Distribution of Cannabis through this program was closed to new patients in 1992.(some patients that was in that study are still getting marijuana monthly from the federal government for life).

  • In 1986, an isomer of synthetic delta-9-THC in sesame oil was licensed and approved for the treatment of chemotherapy -associated nausea and vomiting under the generic name dronabinol. (dronabinol was as effective as or better than other antiemetic agents available at the time).

  • The first cannabinoid receptor, CB1, was identified in the brain in 1988.

  • A second cannabinoid receptor, CB2, was identified in 1993.
