3000 BC - THE MEDICAL CANNABIS IN MESOPOTAMIA AND ASSYRIA
primitive forms of picture or character writing first started
appearing around 4,000 BC, it was the Sumerians (Mesopotamia or
southern Iraq) that seem to be the first ones to have developed a
practical form of writing that today is known as Cuneiform at or
around 3,000 BC. And while pictographs (using pictures to portray
whole words or concepts) were in use long before that, Cuneiform
writing provided a means of recording specifics. Thus it can be
said that written history began at that time.
one of the reasons that we know that Medical Cannabis was well in use
long before written history is that because so many civilizations (as
soon as they obtain a written language), speak of it in their
writings in the past tense as if it had already been in use for many
hundreds of years before then.
