Weeds and Weed Country
Amongst all the strains of weed available in Canada, three of the most famous and often-grown varieties are White Pakistani, Top Tier Cannabis and Black Canadian. White Pakistani is a white crescent-shaped weed with a medium sized head and small dark green leaves; it is known as the original weed from Pakistan and originally grew solely in the Great Indian Straightaway. It is an evergreen perennial and grows up to thirty feet tall. Top Tier on the other hand, is a warm blooded variety of weed which is native to British Columbia and the Yukon; it grows up to four feet and is very aromatic.
The Most Famous and Often-Grown Varieties
Weed is a strange plant; it is known as having many different uses, but is most famous for being the most potent psychoactive substance in nature. This is why marijuana has been the most popularly abused drug in the United States; it is said to be more dangerous than cocaine, methamphetamine and ecstasy. But despite its popularity, marijuana is still considered to be illegal under federal law, with any possession of it punishable by a fine or imprisonment. As it is difficult to enforce against users and abusers, other states have taken up the enforcement of marijuana possession laws, with Colorado, Alaska, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington being some of the states which have toughened their laws against recreational marijuana users and sellers. On a national scale, marijuana is still illegal, but local police departments are taking action against people caught selling or cultivating the drug in a relaxed atmosphere that does not seem to be imposing any punishments on those who do grow it on private property.
There are many other varieties of weed available in Canada which are not part of the Top Tier; they include French Tongue, Russian Pea, Scottish Wee and Indonesian Eragrostis. The varieties available in the United States also differ greatly; there are the Black Marijuana, White Russian, Columbianican Bush, Hawaiian Paradise, Thai Crocus and Mexican Yuma. Some of the most exotic plants in the world tend to be grown not far from the United States as well, including the Australian Melaleuca, Chinese Rooibos, and even Jamaican national flower, the mahulutable. However, all of these are grown strictly for their flowers and leaves rather than for their medicinal values; for this reason it is often difficult to classify them into weed country.
