Abstract:
Use of cannabis (hashish) in Egypt as an intoxicant was first reported in the 11th century, more than 500 years after the death of the prophet Mohamed (A.D. 615), when Islam had already reached the apogee of its power. During succeeding centuries consumption of this drug had become ingrained among the people in spite of repeated attempts by the rulers of the country to curtail its spread.
