Cannabis (or marijuana) was added to the schedule to the Canadian Opium and Drug Act (1911) in 1923 based on “Reefer Madness” across the US individual states between 1915 and 1937, initially because of the Mexican influence and then a fear it would become the “new menace” as a substitution for alcohol.
