Dr. Orlando Owoh - Ganja Vol. 5

Moses discovered the angel of the Lord in the flames of a burning bush.
The ancient Chinese considered ganja to be one of the five basic medicinal herbs.  The first reference to ganja as a psychoactive agent was recorded in 2737 BC by the Chinese emperor Shen Nung.  Ganja is often found in the tombs of kings and pharaohs.  Civilization itself is thought to have arisen from the fields of cannabis lining the rivers of Southern Asian.  Since time immemorial ganja has been prescribed by medical practitioners for rheumatism, gout, malaria, labor pains, nausea and, in general, for whatever ails you.  What good doctor, I ask you, would deny his patients this wonderful herb?  Certainly not Dr. Orlando Owoh.
