Illustration of the Indian Hemp (Cannabis sativa), from a woodcut in "Gart der Gesundheit", 1485. Leaves of Cannabis sativa are smoked or swallowed to produce euphoria and hallucinations, also affecting the user's perception of time and general awareness. Although not viewed as a 'hard' drug, the use of Cannabis is illegal as it may lead to use of more dangerous addictive substances. Cannabis is also known as pot, marijuana or hashish.
