A rural Estonia town whose name literally means “cannabis” has voted to adopt a marijuana leaf as its official logo, a local official said Thursday.
South Africa first banned cannabis in 1911. Along with Egypt, it led the fight in the League of Nations to have it prohibited world-wide. South Africa's system of racial separation (apartheid) gained it general condemnation and sanctions. In April of this year South Africa held its first multi-racial elections, hopefully ushering in an era of peaceful change and further evolution. -Ed
