On Question 2: We're considering here a plant that has been used in
every recorded civilization and I can't really believe that the U.S.
of A. got onto a magic secret in 1930 that made it worthwhile to
destroy lives for its possession. Even now, in many states, if police
confiscate assets in a search, they don't need to return these assets
if the case is lost or not pursued. While this often does not include
actual plant material, it does often include cash. Legislation
encourages state/federal tension.

Labels? The "medicinal" route has been shamed into legality only after
toddlers were helped undeniably.

"Recreational" does not mean that a person wants to obliterate himself
and/or others. Cannabis calms and balances: Think positive side
effects. As a potent natural tonic (synergistic shotgun and not silver
bullet) it's the perfect anti-Big Pharma entity and the social stigma
is once again big money spent cynically to buy a public perception.
