Oakland’s pioneering cannabis college Oaksterdam University gets some great air time on History Channel’s hottest new show, 10 Things You Didn't Know About featuring Henry Rollins.  

The intense, legendary Black Flag musician and writer dropped by Oaksterdam to learn about the origins of the word “marijuana.” 

The first of the ten things you probably didn’t know? “No one knows where the word marijuana comes from.”

Rollins explains how the US government once mandated that citizens grow hemp, and relates other insider tidbits mainstream America is just now un-forgetting. Taken with Dr. Sanjay Gupta's specials, historians will one day note shows like this were part of a national de-programming of sorts with regard to marijuana.

History Channel is streaming the entire, 44-minute episode online here.
