comment Shine a beam of light horizontally, drop a stone from same height - would both hit the ground at the same time?
The horizontal component of an objects velocity does not affect the vertical (gravitational) velocity. All cannonballs would fall to earth with the speed of ~9.8m/s^2, regardless of the initial horizontal velocity imparted on the object. Any cannon ball that achieves orbit does not fit the parameters of the original question.
