From the mid-19th century to the 1930s, American physicians prescribed marijuana for a plethora of indications, until the federal government started imposing restrictions on its use, culminating in 1970 with the US Congress classifying it as a Schedule I substance, illegal, and without medical value. Simultaneous with this prohibition, marijuana became the United States' most widely used illicit recreational drug. Going mainstream in 1995, California became the first of 16 states to date to legalize its medical use, despite the federal ban. - Bostwick JM., Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN
