It has come to my attention that the question, “Is Marijuana A Weed?” is googled SEVEN MILLION TIMES A MONTH! That statistic is staggering so I am here to answer that question. The image in this article pretty much explains it: “A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows” – Doug Larson.
So the answer in short is yes, marijuana is in fact a weed, the plant wasn’t given that nickname for nothing! Marijuana grows fast, healthy and sporadically everywhere just like a weed! In fact Marijuana’s cousin plant Hemp is a weed too. Hemp wouldn’t get you high even if you tried to smoke a pound of it but it is counted in the “weed” genus because as it’s pollen and seeds spread with the wind and bees it ends up growing wild everywhere. In fact since it used to be required of American’s to grow “hemp for victory” for World War II, today you can still see wild hemp plants growing in middle America in places like North Dakota even though it hasn’t been purposely grown there in decades. People are even hired to chop down and haul away the now “illegal” growing hemp plants as they can get out of control every year just like a weed! Hope this helps the seven million people searching for answers to this question every month!
