High History / Part XXIX / Benjamin Franklin

8 months ago


All of us know, Franklin realized the lightning was an electric discharge from the clouds and has developed the first general theory of electrical phenomena, and he introduced the marking of electrified bodies with + and -, noting that there are only two types of electrical charges.

We will never know for sure what behinds the scenes habits he may have developed! But we know, he did reside in France for quite some time and the French aristocracy were rumored to have developed habits connected with certain #Weed Usage!

And we know also, President John Adams, found him totally naked in a bath wearing a coonskin hat, with an older female of high rank. They were both Exceptionally High and apparently very happy.


Benjamin Franklin (17 Mayuarie 1706 - 17 April 1790 )

  • He was one of the most famous personalities in history, one of the Founding Fathers, diplomat, scientist, inventor, philosopher, professor and political man.

  • He organized the first library in America, he created many objects that are indispensable today, including bifocals and lightning goggles, and amazed scientists all over the world with his experiments in the field of electricity.

  • He was the one who persuaded the English to withdraw the Stamp Act, respectively convincing the French to intervene in the US Independence War on their part.

  • He was one of the leading signatories of the Union's Independence Declaration & American Constitution.

  • He was an Ambassador to England, France and the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Assembly. He was awarded the Doctor of Science degree from St. Louis University.


Benjamin Franklin's Inventions

  • Benjamin Franklin has been An Inventor all his life. The most famous invention was the Franklin Stove, which had a higher yield. The governor of Pennsylvania told him to patent it, but Franklin refused.

  • When Franklin heard that a European was able to store Electricity in some special tubes, bought some tubes from them, and built a lab in his home. He has done many experiments and published a book on electricity.

  • Based on its principles, the Theory of Modern Electricity is based. He sent the results of his experiments to scientists from England and France who were impressed and was elected a member of the Royal Society in 1756 and received the Copley Medal.

  • In 1773 he was elected as one of the eight foreign associates of the Royal Academy of Sciences in Paris.


Benjamin Franklin & Hemp

  • In 1748, Franklin had enough money to leave the business. He bought a 300-acre farm near Burlington, New Jersey, having enough time for science and public services. Between 1736 and 1751 he was the head of the Philadelphia Post Office.

  • Ben Franklin owned a Mill That Made #Hemp Paper, which allowed America to have a free colonial press without having to beg or justify paper and books from England.

Furthermore, the rope that was used in his famous lighting experiment was a hemp rope.


Benjamin Franklin & Weed

Franklin famously remarked in 1735, "An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure unless the cure is something cool, like staying in bed for two weeks and only eating ice cream. Tonsillitis is very Good, if you ask me."


Franklin's problem was stress and Marijuana Was Both, The Cure & The Prevention :

  • If we go back to the College of Philadelphia, that has founded by him, we will know, he identified lightning as a form of electricity in June of 1752.

  • On April 20th 1753, Benjamin found a way to light a cannabis cigarette "Joint" or "Thick Fat Blunt", using the electric jolt of lightning.

  • The Lightning Joint Experiment forever informed how people consumed wacky tabacky, which is precisely why 4/20 is a celebration of Benjamin Franklin's noble contributions to U.S. society, and led directly to some of his later experiments like the Lightning Bong Experiment!

So when you see one Ben Franklin photos or statues, make sure to salute the man who made smoking weed possible !
