Wrap-Up/Final Words

We want to extend a special 'thank you' to all of the authors, researchers, and activists who have dedicated their time and expertise towards educating people about cannabis! Without these contributions, much of this information could have been lost in history.

Prohibition did its best to wipe the world of its memory of cannabis, but the effort was in vain. Due to the written word of these remarkable figures, there is more hope than ever.
