is DANGEROUS. Pot is NOT harmful to the human body or mind.
Marijuana does NOT pose a threat to the general public. Marijuana is
very much a danger to the oil companies, alcohol, tobacco industries
and a large number of chemical corporations. Various big businesses,
with plenty of dollars and influence, have suppressed the truth from the
truth is if marijuana was utilized for its vast array of commercial
products, it would create an industrial atomic bomb! Entrepreneurs have
not been educated on the product potential of pot. The super rich have
conspired to spread misinformation about an extremely versatile plant
that, if used properly, would ruin their companies.
did the word 'marijuana' come from? In the mid 1930s, the M-word was
created to tarnish the good image and phenomenal history of the hemp
plant...as you will read. The facts cited here, with references, are
generally verifiable in the Encyclopedia Britannica which was printed on
hemp paper for 150 years:
schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax paper until the 1880s; Hemp

REFUSING TO GROW HEMP in America during the 17th and 18th Centuries WAS
AGAINST THE LAW! You could be jailed in Virginia for refusing to grow
hemp from 1763 to 1769; Hemp in Colonial Virginia, G. M. Herdon.
Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers GREW HEMP;
Washington and Jefferson Diaries. Jefferson smuggled hemp seeds from
China to France then to America.
Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first paper mills in America and it
processed hemp. Also, the War of 1812 was fought over hemp. Napoleon
wanted to cut off Moscow's export to England; Emperor Wears No Clothes,

industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.
Rembrants, Gainsboroughs, Van Goghs as well as most early canvas
paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.
1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would
come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down. Government
studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were
in the works to implement such programs; Department of Agriculture
Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937.
58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in

called 'Billion Dollar Crop.' It was the first time a cash crop had a
business potential to exceed a billion dollars; Popular Mechanics, Feb.,
Mechanical Engineering Magazine (Feb. 1938) published an article
entitled 'The Most Profitable and Desirable Crop that Can be Grown.' It
stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th Century technology, it
would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest
of the world.
following information comes directly from the United States Department
of Agriculture's 1942 14-minute film encouraging and instructing
'patriotic American farmers' to grow 350,000 acres of hemp each year for
the war effort:
'...(When) Grecian temples were new, hemp was already old in the service
of mankind. For thousands of years, even then, this plant had been grown
for cordage and cloth in China and elsewhere in the East. For centuries
prior to about 1850, all the ships that sailed the western seas were
rigged with hempen rope and sails. For the sailor, no less than the
hangman, hemp was indispensable...

Japanese...American hemp must meet the needs of our Army and Navy as
well as of our industries...
Navy's rapidly dwindling reserves. When that is gone, American hemp will
go on duty again; hemp for mooring ships; hemp for tow lines; hemp for
tackle and gear; hemp for countless naval uses both on ship and shore.
Just as in the days when Old Ironsides sailed the seas victorious with
her hempen shrouds and hempen sails. Hemp for victory!'

cultivation and production do not harm the environment. The USDA
Bulletin #404 concluded that

From Popular Mechanics, Feb. 1938:

roots penetrate and break the soil to leave it in perfect condition for
the next year's crop. The dense shock of leaves, 8 to 12 feet above the
ground, chokes out weeds.
...hemp, this new crop can add immeasurably to American agriculture and
1930s, innovations in farm machinery would have caused an industrial
revolution when applied to hemp. This single resource could have created
millions of new jobs generating thousands of quality products. Hemp, if
not made illegal, would have brought America out of the Great
Randolph Hearst (Citizen Kane) and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing
Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst
Company supplied most paper products. Patty Hearst's grandfather, a
destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions
because of hemp.
In 1937, Dupont patented the processes to
make plastics from oil and coal. Dupont's Annual Report urged
stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics
such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron,
etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would
have ruined over 80% of Dupont's business.
Mellon became Hoover's Secretary of the Treasury and Dupont's primary
investor. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to
head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.
Secret meetings were held by these financial
tycoons. Hemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion
dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to
go. These men took an obscure Mexican slang word: 'marihuana' and pushed
it into the consciousness of America.
blitz of 'yellow journalism' raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. Hearst's
newspapers ran stories emphasizing the horrors of marihuana. The menace
of marihuana made headlines. Readers learned that it was responsible for
everything from car accidents to loose morality.
like 'Reefer Madness' (1936), 'Marihuana: Assassin of Youth' (1935) and
'Marihuana: The Devil's Weed' (1936) were propaganda designed by these
industrialists to create an enemy. Their purpose was to gain public
support so that anti-marihuana laws could be passed.

entire family with an ax.
more vicious, more deadly even than these
soul-destroying drugs (heroin, cocaine) is the menace of marihuana!
Madness did not end with the usual 'the end.' The film concluded with
these words plastered on the screen: TELL YOUR CHILDREN.
1930s, people were very naive; even to the point of ignorance. The
masses were like sheep waiting to be led by the few in power. They did
not challenge authority. If the news was in print or on the radio, they
believed it had to be true. They told their children and their children
grew up to be the parents of the baby-boomers.
14, 1937, the Prohibitive Marihuana Tax Law or the bill that outlawed
hemp was directly brought to the House Ways and Means Committee. This
committee is the only one that can introduce a bill to the House floor
without it being debated by other committees. The Chairman of the Ways
and Means, Robert Doughton, was a Dupont supporter. He insured that the
bill would pass Congress.
James Woodward, a physician and attorney, testified too late on behalf
of the American Medical Association. He told the committee that the
reason the AMA had not denounced the Marihuana Tax Law sooner was that
the Association had just discovered that marihuana was hemp.
people, at the time, realized that the deadly menace they had been
reading about on Hearst's front pages was in fact passive hemp. The AMA
understood cannabis to be a MEDICINE found in numerous healing products
sold over the last hundred years.
September of 1937, hemp became illegal. The most useful crop known
became a drug and our planet has been suffering ever since.
banned hemp because it was said to be the most violence-causing drug
known. Anslinger, head of the Drug Commission for 31 years, promoted the
idea that marihuana made users act extremely violent. In the 1950s,
under the Communist threat of McCarthyism, Anslinger now said the exact
opposite. Marijuana will pacify you so much that soldiers would not want
our planet is in desperate trouble. Earth is suffocating as large tracts
of rain forests disappear. Pollution, poisons and chemicals are killing
people. These great problems could be reversed if we industrialized
hemp. Natural biomass could provide all of the planet's energy needs
that are currently supplied by fossil fuels. We have consumed 80% of our
oil and gas reserves. We need a renewable resource. Hemp could be the
solution to soaring gas prices.
THE WONDER PLANT
a higher quality fiber than wood fiber. Far fewer caustic chemicals are
required to make paper from hemp than from trees. Hemp paper does not
turn yellow and is very durable. The plant grows quickly to maturity in
a season where trees take a lifetime.
PLASTIC PRODUCTS SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP SEED OIL. Hempen plastics are
biodegradable! Over time, they would break down and not harm the
environment. Oil-based plastics, the ones we are very familiar with,
help ruin nature; they do not break down and will do great harm in the
future. The process to produce the vast array of natural (hempen)
plastics will not ruin the rivers as Dupont and other petrochemical
companies have done. Ecology does not fit in with the plans of the Oil
Industry and the political machine. Hemp products are safe and natural.
MEDICINES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. We should go back to the days when
the AMA supported cannabis cures. 'Medical Marijuana' is given out
legally to only a handful of people while the rest of us are forced into
a system that relies on chemicals. Pot is only healthy for the human
HUNGER COULD END. A large variety of food products can be generated from
hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature.
ALSO: They have two essential fatty acids that clean your body of
cholesterol. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in
nature! Consuming pot seeds is the best thing you could do for your
body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds.
SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. Hemp clothing is extremely strong and durable
over time. You could hand clothing, made from pot, down to your
grandchildren. Today, there are American companies that make hemp
clothing; usually 50% hemp. Hemp fabrics should be everywhere. Instead,
they are almost underground. Superior hemp products are not allowed to
advertise on fascist television. Kentucky, once the top hemp producing
state, made it ILLEGAL TO WEAR hemp clothing! Can you imagine being
thrown into jail for wearing quality jeans?
world is crazy...but that does not mean you have to join the insanity.
Get together. Spread the news. Tell people, and that includes your
children, the truth. Use hemp products. Eliminate the word 'marijuana.'
Realize the history that created it. Make it politically incorrect to
say or print the M-word. Fight against the propaganda (designed to favor
the agenda of the super rich) and the bullshit. Hemp must be utilized in
the future. We need a clean energy source to save our planet.

history of the human race, not one death can be attributed to cannabis.
Our society has outlawed grass but condones the use of the KILLERS:
TOBACCO and ALCOHOL. Hemp should be declassified and placed in DRUG
stores to relieve stress. Hardening and constriction of the arteries are
bad; but hemp usage actually enlarges the arteries...which is a
condition. We have been so conditioned to think that: Smoking is
harmful. That is NOT the case for passive pot.
Ingesting THC, hemp's active agent, has a positive effect; relieving
asthma and glaucoma. A joint tends to alleviate the nausea caused by
chemotherapy. You are able to eat on hemp. This is a

difficulty gaining weight. We were in the hospital. A nurse called us to
one side and said: ‘Off the record, if you smoke pot...you'd get
something called the munchies and you’ll gain weight.' I swear that is a
true story). [Using
Medifast coupons to counteract the
results of the weight gain later on is a different story.]
stereotype for a pothead is similar to a drunk, bubble-brain. Yet, the
truth is one’s creative abilities can be enhanced under its influence.
The perception of time slightly slows and one can become more sensitive.
You can more appreciate all arts; be closer to nature and generally FEEL
more under the influence of cannabis. It is, in fact, the exact opposite
state of mind and body as the drunken state. You can be more aware with
plant is an ALIEN plant. There is physical evidence that cannabis is not
like any other plant on this planet. One could conclude that it was
brought here for the benefit of humanity. Hemp is the ONLY plant where
the males appear one way and the females appear very different,
physically! No one ever speaks of males and females in regard to the
plant kingdom because plants do not show their sexes; except for
cannabis. To determine what sex a certain, normal, Earthly plant is: You
have to look internally, at its DNA. A male blade of grass (physically)
looks exactly like a female blade of grass. The hemp plant has an
intense sexuallity. Growers know to kill the males before they fertilize
the females. Yes, folks...the most potent pot comes from 'horny

illegal has nothing to do with how it physically affects us…..

think the word ‘DRUGS’ should not be used as an umbrella-word that
covers all chemical agents. Drugs have come to be known as something
BAD. Are you aware there are LEGAL drugstores?! Yep, in every city.
Unbelievable. Each so-called drug should be considered individually.
Cannabis is a medicine and not a drug. We should DARE to speak the TRUTH
no matter what the law is.
