WHAT CAN YOU DO

    We think, now that you’ve had a good look at our side and the government’s sideof this story (both as we see it and as the media projects it), you’ll want to join us in putting this issue onto the ballots and into the legislatures of this country, where everyone can express their opinions in the straight-forward manner set forth in our United States’ and individual state constitutions.

    Teach hemp to everyone; talk about it—all the time. Look for hemp products, ask for hemp—buy hemp. Defend hemp. And use the information and suggestions included in the Appendix at the end of the paper version of this book. Purchase copies of the paper version of this book and the CD-ROM for you local public and school libraries.

    At the risk of repetition, let us once more state in the strongest possible terms, that cannabis hemp—indeed the plant we denigrate with the slang name marijuana—will become known to future generations, as it was known to past generations for millenia, as the number-one annually renewable, fully sustainable, non pesticide-requiring, and most abundant source of paper/Þber/fuel on the face of the earth; with more overall uses than any other known plant.

    In other words, cannabis hemp is the greatest plant on earth!

    Write to your elected ofÞcials and the news media, to help create a more conscious political leadership and favorable news coverage on marijuana and hemp. Give credit for good votes and coverage, and complain about bad. Register and run for office. And always vote!!

    Demand that our prisoners of conscience be freed, rewarded, and honored. They deserve to be welcomed home as heroes, and as P.O.W.s in this “War on Drugs,” to receive veteran’s benefits and rights—not the DEA or police.

think of this:

    If these outlaw citizens had not deÞed the government and preserved the hempseed, our government and its prohibitionist policies would have eradicated this plant from our Earth.

    So, the heroes of this war are not William Bennett, Nancy Reagan, Bill Clinton, General Barry McCaffrey, the DEA, or DARE, but those who deÞed them. These true heroes must have their lives and property returned. For defying these tyrannical laws, they must be remembered by each of us for all time. For they saved the seed that’s going to save the planet!

Hemp for Victory!

    Let our people go. Let our people grow. And neverallow our politicians again impose such fanatical prohibition laws against any natural substance in its natural form. We almost lost the seed and knowledge to save the planet.

    Democracy doesn’t work—ever—unless it is honest.

    And if the suppression of hemp is just one example of the many lies which American police/bureaucrats and prison guards have been blackmailing their theoretical bosses—elected politicians and the public—we are in big trouble!

    We have reviewed this “drug war” against cannabis hemp/marijuana as thoroughly as we possibly could, and what we have seen sickens us. And only those with this knowledge of hemp, whose doors of perception have been cleansed, can kick the scumbags out and reclaim our freedoms, our planet, and our life-sustaining environment.

    We therefore agree with the little boy from Hans Christian Andersens’s tale who, while watching the parade pass by, shouted with courageous innocence:

“The Emperor wears no clothes.”

What do your own eyes see?

What are you going to do about it?!
