    Abstract

    In the last decade marihuana consumption in the United States has increased dramatically. A recent government estimate suggested that sufficient illicit marihuana is available in this country to provide 10 cigarettes per capita. Criminal penalties for possession of marihuana in this country are assigned for possession of defined quantities of marihuana and its identification as Cannabis sativa by microscopic and/or chemical tests.
