If Marijuana Ruled
Contest Directions: By tradition, cannabis lovers around the world celebrate 4/20 (April 20) by smoking marijuana communally. The tradition was started in 1971 by the teenagers in San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California - they would meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke cannabis at the Louis Pasteur statue. The group's salute was "420 Louis!". Later, marijuana smokers chose April 20th as "their holiday", because of the 4/20 calendar numbers for this date.
Photoshop what life would be like if marijuana were legal and ruled the world. Some examples are: include marijuana in flags, logos, products, movies or paintings; show politicians and celebrities smoking cannabis, etc. Here's one good example.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Marijuana is dry flowers, seeds and leaves of a well-known Indian hemp. On the streets, it is often called differently: hemp, pot, grass, mash, jamb, smoke, weed, ganja, ganjubas, and others. Hashish - is a related form of the narcotic, which is obtained from the latex of hemp. It is also known as gashik, plasticine. On an average, it acts six times more strongly than marijuana. "Cannabis" is a name for any of the various kinds of narcotic derivatives of Indian hemp including marijuana and hashish. These narcotics are hallucinogens, i.e. such substances, which disturb the perception of the world around. The chemical substance, which is responsible for the distortion of perception, is called THC (tetrahydrocannabidinol). The ТHC content in different lots of marijuana can vary significantly. Nevertheless, the general tendency to increase the ТHC content has been observed in recent years. How is it used? Marijuana is smoked, rolled into cigarettes (jambs), it can also be smoked using tobacco pipes. Rarely it is mixed up with food or boiled as tea. Sometimes, marijuana users unroll cigars and replace the tobacco with marijuana. This method of using is called a "blunt". Sometimes, along with jambs and blunts, other stronger narcotics such as crack or pi-si-pi (phencyclidine, a powerful hallucinogen) are also mixed. When the person smokes jamb, he generally starts feeling the narcotic effect in a few minutes. Sensations, which are directly associated with the drug, are increased heart rate, deterioration of movement coordination and sense of equilibrium and there is also a "pensive" feeing regarding the unreality of the surroundings. The culmination comes within the first 30 minutes of taking the drug. These effects are short-term effects and gradually cease within 23 hours but can last for longer period, which depends on the quantity of the drug taken, the potency of the ТHC and whether other narcotic drugs are mixed or not. As the person using narcotic inhales more smoke and detains it for longer periods than while smoking a regular cigarette, this itself causes serious injury to the lungs. In addition to the discomfort, which creates the inflammation of the throat and chest pain, it was found that by smoking one jamb, the danger of the deposition of cancer causing chemicals is the same as smoking five regular cigarettes. The consequences of marijuana use on cogitative activity are of a serious degree. The marijuana smoker has a weak memory and mental capabilities in comparison to those who do not use it. According to research, the structural damage of the brain was seen in animals which were administered marijuana. The history of Marijuana: Hemp (from which both marijuana and hashish are obtained) has been cultivated for the use as a hallucinogen for more than 2000 years. In spite of the fact that hemp consists of more than 400 chemicals, the main ingredient, which acts on the mind, is ТHC. The levels of ТHC in hemp define the potency of the narcotic. Weather, soil and other factors define the percentage of ТHC levels in the plant. With the help of modern agrarian technologies, types of hemp have been cultivated, which have much higher levels of ТHC than before. The average content of ТHC in a plant was up to 1% in 1974 and 4% in 1994. In 2008, the levels of ТHC in a plant have grown up to 9.6%, which is the highest index since the seventies, when the analysis of this drug was started. One of the kinds of hemp which is called "Sensimilia" (from Spanish "without seeds"), contains from 7.5% up to 24% ТHC. The comparison of alcohol to marijuana: Does the smoking of marijuana cause the same effect as alcohol intake? Decide yourself. Here are the facts: Alcohol contains only one substance - ethanol. Marijuana contains more than 400 known chemicals, including the same cancer causing chemicals which are also present in tobacco smoke. Unlike cigarette smokers, marijuana smokers try to inhale deeper and hold the smoke as longer as possible to get the enhanced effect of the drug. It damages the lungs much more. Alcohol is removed from the body in some hours; THC can remain in the body for weeks and sometimes months, depending on the duration and intensity of abuse. ТHC damages the immune system, where as alcohol does not. Here, the aim is not to lessen the hazards of alcohol abuse, which can also be potentially harmful. However, smokers should know that the chemicals in marijuana, some of which can lead to cancer, remain in the body for a longer duration after drug abuse. Marijuana and its effects on the reproductive system (in men): Marijuana reduces the testosterone content, the main hormone in men. The persistent and long-term use of marijuana can lead to a change in the hormonal setup, so much so that the development of sexual function in teenagers is disrupted. In severe cases, the number of sperm and their mobility is reduced and an increase in the number of abnormal sperm cells is observed. Marijuana and its effect on reproductive system (in women): Marijuana is accumulated in the female reproductive organs. Marijuana leads to changes in brain activity that can lead to ovulation disturbances and reduced fertility. Marijuana can have a toxic effect on fetal development during pregnancy, causing abnormalities during pregnancy, a difficult labor and the early death of the fetus. The so-called "Marijuana Fetal Syndrome", characterized by the low weight of new born babies and development abnormalities, is observed 5 times more often than in "Alcoholic Fetal syndrome". Marijuana is passed-on together with the mother's milk to the breast feeding children.
