Read newspapers published in the late 1800's, a company, called Ganja
Wallah Hasheesh Candy Company, advertised candy made by combining
Maple Sugar and Hashish!

This well established company legally sold Candy Hashish Concoctions for at
least 40 years. Sold over the counter at pharmacies, it was advertised in
many newspapers as sweeties

Wallah sold this product for 40 years. It was sold out in the open.  It was
purchased by many consumers, in public, with no fear of the
government.............(probably because their grandparents remembered a
little tea party held in Boston and the government stayed out of peoples
business and people weren't so politically correct and neighbors weren't
sticking their freaking noses over freaking privacy fences, in your own
backyard, with that whinny screeching voice of hers asking,.........."What's
that funny looking flower growing there???"  So you run them off with a hoe
and ................ahahah.....umhump.....excuse me.............sorry, sorry,........)

was...........O, well.....

About the hashish candy.......Do you know what this means???
