Cannabis gets its high-inducing power from ancient viruses

Very educational article from the standpoint of how the medical benefits produced from the cannabis plant will progress; as scientists have just fully mapped the cannabis genome.

One of the things that scientists learned is that long-long-long ago viruses successfully implanted ‘bits’ of its DNA into it host plant, cannabis.
