Cannabis Plant

                Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants, it produces a psychoactive substance called THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the reason cannabis plants started producing THC is self-defense against herbivores and it also absorbs UV rays and protects the plant from harmful UV radiation. Cannabis was first used somewhat 5000 years ago in Asia, Afghanistan, Egypt, Greece and such for medicinal, recreational purposes or as hemp (industrial cannabis that has very low percentages of THC in it) and in modern world it was banned in mid 40's.
Recently more and more states begin to legalize medicinal cannabis, as of now 15 states in the US have legalized medical use of marijuana and few states are trying to legalize it for recreational purposes.
