It was Bob Dylan who introduced the Beatles to Cannabis for the first time in 1964. John Lennon later stated, “We were smoking marijuana for breakfast. We were well into marijuana, and nobody could communicate with us. We were just glazed eyes and giggling all the time.” Cannabis stayed with the Fab Four and inspired a new sound for an entire generation.
In 1964 a professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem was the first to identify delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol,THC, as the main psychoactive component in marijuana. Dr. Raphael Mechoulam was also the first to synthesize THC.
Cannabis activism also started in earnest on August 16, 1964, when Lowell Eggermiers walked into a San Francisco Police Station, announced, “I am starting a campaign to legalize marijuana smoking. I wish to be arrested.” Whereupon he fired up a joint, took a hit, and his wish was granted.
