THE ANTIQUE CANNABIS BOOK
Chapter 4 - (2nd Edition)
Pre-1937 MEDICAL CANNABIS USE
Section -1 - MEDICAL CANNABIS Mfg's in Virginia:
List of Virginia (State) Pharmaceutical Companies identified by the museum with a Cannabis History.
MUSEUM NOTE: Although at the present time, the list of identified pharmaceutical manufacturers from Virginia that made use of Medical Cannabis is somewhat small. It should be remembered that while the museum has so far identified well over 2,000 pre-1937 Cannabis medicines, we have ONLY scratched the surface. Our goal is 30,000 such medicines. Thus it is logical to assume that in the future, we will be able to locate many, many more.
