medical marijuana research, hemp farming, and a return to a hemp-based
economy that will play a vital part in reversing the coming man-made
Marijuana prohibition criminalizes the use of the safest, most versatile plant known to man.
Marijuana prohibition is in large part a cause of global warming.
Marijuana prohibition has stopped 75 years of human progress; it is an idea that will be thrown on the scrap heap of history.
All of this is about to change. The coming marijuana spring will be
in big part a global shift to the simplicity of a cannabis-based
resource economy for medicine, fuel, food and housing, plus many more
Widespread use of cannabis-based products will increase the wealth of any producing nation.
respect for this plant... yeah, it going to be that important to the
human race as one answer to cool the earth. Sometimes a hero arrives in
the form of a plant; cannabis can save this planet in a million ways.
The world needs the cannabis plant now to help
save us from the coming environmental holocaust coming our way. The
perfect plant, for the perfect time of great need.
Presently the world's population is 7 billion; by 2050 we will add 2 billion more humans
to the earth. That's the equivalent of two present-day Chinas.
will need 20 percent more of everything. Many of the world's grain
stables fail in hot, drier weather; competition for resources by more
people leads to more famine and war. Remember, you can't negotiate with
nine years I will be 70. I will probably die within the next 25 years
or less and miss the worst of this event. I consider this post as a time
capsule which I am sending into the future to my grandchildren and
generations of children beyond that. I was thinking of you and I had your back.
You reading this, your children and my children are in harm's way.
Eighty percent of the U.S. population lives with 25 miles of an ocean.
Imagine world sea levels six feet higher. Imagine a Sandy-type storm
being the new normal.
on earth escapes this, as wheat, corn and soybeans crops fail in all
the world's bread baskets as they did this past summer. Adding cannabis
as a staple is the right thing to do. The right plant, at the right time
to help to make a difference in the equation to help humans survive the
environmental shit storm coming our way.
This Marijuana Spring increases the chances for a happy ending to this evolutionary challenge.
as a society no longer have the luxury of not developing a
cannabis-based economy where many of the common materials we use are
The new Marijuana Spring majority vote gets it right by starting with the basics.
will continue to vote in upcoming referendums that people have the
liberty and personal freedom to grow and use the cannabis plant in all
matters, to change their consciousness, be free from pain, heal
themselves from sickness, grow and share a plant for survival.
This "cannabis birthright" is based on three strong lines of biological, religious, and U.S. historical evidence.
Human Biological Cannabis
Within all human DNA are instructions that build an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that is vital to life.
ECS regulates our overall level of body homeostasis or feelings of
wellness by regulating overloads to the nervous system and overall
immune system inflammation response: mind and body normality.
legalization vote unchains medical marijuana researchers. Cannabis, one
medicine, 43 positive effects. Zero deaths, Main side effects hungry,
happy, sleepy. Any questions?
homeostatic euphoria effects of a good mood state, this plant can also
provide for many other basic needs for survival that many people are
unaware of due to the nation's lockdown on scientific knowledge called
products are ready for prime time now. They have the potential to feed ,
house, and treat cancer, dementia, and all other matter of physical and
brain aliments, helping the world's population survive.
Shamans were using cannabis
as a spiritual medicine and as an aid in religious/mystical
transcendence 2,800 years ago. Before written language, divine cannabis
knowledge was being passed down from generation to generation. Cannabis
in all likelihood has had its roots deep in our human history for
thousands of years. This use predates the Bible by 800 years.
Cannabis may have been humans' earliest medicine, and the oldest religious sacrament!
is a "first foundation" plant which had to give humans an evolutionary
advantage, allowing them to produce more offspring by producing food,
fiber, fuel and raw building material. Cannabis use may have started the
Neolithic revolution, the start of human civilization
Cannabis use existed thousands of years before any form of government in the world existed!
Cannabis use should be covered by a "humanity grandfather clause," because humans have always used this plant.
All of our ancient ancestors used cannabis products, and that outcome produced you and me!
Historical U.S. Cannabis
Cannabis prohibition retroactively makes George Washington and Thomas Jefferson into criminals.
you know that cannabis was so valued it started the War of 1812? When
the British marched into Washington D.C. and burned the place to the
ground, it was in retaliation for the U.S. stealing cannabis and burning
Canadian cities down.
The U.S., up to the 1920s, was in large part a cannabis based economy. Need evidence?
U.S. 1914 10-dollar note attempted to showcase the wealth of our nation
and to project faith in the buying power of the our currency by
highlighting the partnership between cannabis farming and this raw
material being sent to industry to produce cannabis-based products.
societies depend on cannabis. The scene in this picture is only a
little over 100 years ago. A true conservative idea built on successful
capitalism, which we all can support, and where we all profit. Cannabis
is a win-win for everybody, plus we save the planet!
The 1914 US Federal Reserve Note showing the wealth of the US was a cannabis-based economy
. We need to return to this standard.
the greater context, the marijuana spring signals the green light for
hemp farming and hemp products to be directly grown and manufactured,
creating green jobs worldwide.
plant-based medicines and hemp-based farming to produce food, fuel and
industrial products are thousands of years old. The cannabis plant is
safe, time-tested, low tech, off the shelf, ready to use today, right
now, by everybody on earth--including third-world people using only
simple hand tools, as they fight to survive the coming great rise in sea
is a plant that is hardy and drought-resistant. It will grow everywhere
that it can, with different cultivation methods. It can provide
medicine, food, shelter, fuel/oil, cloth, personal care and animal care
products. It can sequester carbon, and you can still smoke it for
Theoretically, a bag
of cannabis seeds, planted by a family working a five acre plot of land
and using different cultivation methods could meet many of their basic
living needs if they had to survive. Imagine that--the power of a
handful of seeds sustaining the lives of humans.
Hemp products need to introduced everywhere into the U.S. and worldwide economies.
hundred years from now, when we are all dead, history books will mark
the passage of legalization of cannabis in 2012 as the moment when the
world rediscovered this ancient plant that started civilization, and
which now will once again save our sorry asses from the impending catastrophic warming of the earth
by 4 to 10 degrees
by 2100, and the addition of two billion more humans by 2050.
Why did marijuana prohibition start?
According to Popular Mechanics, "10,000 acres devoted to hemp will produce as much paper as 40,000 acres of average [forest] pulp land."
Hearst owned enormous timber acreage, land best suited for conventional
pulp, so his interest in preventing the growth of hemp can be easily
explained. Competition from hemp would have easily driven the Hearst
paper-manufacturing company out of business and significantly lowered
the value of his land. Herer even suggests popularizing the term
"marijuana" was a strategy Hearst used in order to create fear in the
American public. "The first step in creating hysteria was to introduce
the element of fear of the unknown by using a word that no one had ever
heard of before... 'Marijuana.' "
involvement in the anti-hemp campaign can also be explained with great
ease. At this time, DuPont was patenting a new sulfuric acid process for
producing wood-pulp paper ... According to the company's own records,
wood-pulp products ultimately accounted for more than 80 percent of all
DuPont's railroad car loadings for the next 50 years."
it should be noted that "two years before the prohibitive hemp tax in
1937, DuPont developed a new synthetic fiber, nylon, which was an ideal
substitute for hemp rope."
The year after the
tax was passed DuPont came out with rayon, which would have been unable
to compete with the strength of hemp fiber or its economical process of
DuPont's point man was none
other than Harry Anslinger... who was appointed to the FBN by Treasury
Secretary Andrew Mellon, who was also chairman of the Mellon Bank,
DuPont's chief financial backer.
Anslinger's relationship to Mellon wasn't just political, he was also married to Mellon's niece.
doesn't take much to draw a connection between DuPont, Anslinger, and
Mellon, and it's obvious that all of these groups, including Hearst, had
strong motivation to prevent the growth of the hemp industry."
