Restitution

Thomas Jefferson’s seminal ideas influenced world history. Perhaps one of his most famous concepts was that individuals should be able to do anything that caused no harm to others. Given that this prominent figure in our nation’s epic saga grew hemp and may have even used it for its psychoactive properties- i.e., to get high, stoned, blitzed, bombed, or wasted- it seems reasonable to assert that he included cannabis cultivation among the acts which “caused no harm to others.”
