Hemp Hemp Hooray!
You can now grow Marijuana for medicine in Northern, Central, and Southern California. By 56% of the popular vote. Over 4.5 million Californians voted yes on Prop 215. It allows you to grow for your friends who cant grow because theyre either too ill, dont have the space or the time. You can grow for PMS, Migraine, Back Pain, you name your ailment. All you need is a note from your physician stating you prefer natures safest and best medicine, Cannabis, over the pharmaceuticals toxic corporate profits and patents. Its there waiting for you to do it.
All the founding fathers grew cannabis on their plantations, by law since Jamestown 1619. If you didnt grow canabis in the colonies you were fined and thrown in jail. Every farmer had to give at least a quarter-acre of cannabis to the government. You could pay your taxes with it right up to the 1820s. The very term legal tender meant you were bartering & trading in hemp.
Why is it an illegal act for you to grow your homespun clothes from hemp?
George Washington grew it. So did Thomas Jefferson. They both smoked it. George Washington said, Make the most of the hemp seed, sow it everywhere. Thomas Jefferson wrote in his diaries that he smoked cannabis to relieve his migraine. It was the second most prescribed medicine until the turn of the century. The most perscribed medicine was Hashish. It was given to women for child birth. It is the most natural form of pain relief on the planet. Uh, George also wrote, I missed pulling my male plants by two days, now I must wait another season for my Blossoming hemp. All the pioneer settlers grew their herbal bush, you know they called it herbal medicine.
Why is that herbal medicine illegal?
Its illegal because
The petrochemical, pharmaceutical, timber, alcohol, and tobacco industries would lose as much as 80% of their profits when hemp is grown for paper, fabric, fuel, food, medicine, plastics, lumber, and lamp oil. Earths #1 resource is non-toxic, biodegradable, recyclable, and renewable.
