"Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees."
And hemp crops take under 4 months start-to-finish.
Trees grown for paper and lumber take 5-10 years!
Never Underestimate the Un-Godly Power of Greed
Prior to 1937, at least 27 medicines containing marijuana were legally available in the United States. Many were made by well-known pharmaceutical firms that still exist today, such as Squibb (now Bristol-Myers Squibb) and Eli Lilly. The Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 federally prohibited marijuana. Dr. William C. Woodward of the American Medical Association opposed the Act, testifying that prohibition would ultimately prevent the medicinal uses of marijuana.
The Controlled Substances Act of 1970 placed all illicit and prescription drugs into five "schedules" (categories). Marijuana was placed in Schedule I, defining it as having a high potential for abuse, no currently accepted medicinal use in treatment in the United States, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision.
This definition simply does not apply to marijuana. Of course, at the time of the Controlled Substances Act, marijuana had been prohibited for more than three decades. Its medicinal uses forgotten, marijuana was considered a dangerous and addictive narcotic. A substantial increase in the number of recreational users in the 1970s contributed to the rediscovery of marijuana's medicinal uses:
Many scientists studied
the health effects of marijuana and inadvertently discovered marijuana's
astonishing medicinal history in the process.
2. Many who used marijuana recreationally also suffered from diseases for which marijuana is beneficial. By fluke, they discovered its therapeutic usefulness.
Exactly where 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. The facts cited here, with references, are generally verifiable in the Encyclopaedia Britannica -- which was printed on hemp paper for 150 years:
All schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax paper until the 1880s; Hemp Paper
Reconsidered, Jack Frazier, 1974.
* It was LEGAL TO PAY TAXES WITH HEMP in America from 1631 until the early 1800s; L.A. Times, Aug. 12, 1981.
* 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.
* George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers GREW HEMP; Washington and Jefferson Diaries. Jefferson smuggled hemp seeds from China to France then to America.
* For thousands of years, 90% of all ships' sails and rope were made from hemp. The word 'canvas' is Dutch for hemp; Webster's New World Dictionary.
* 80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction of the cotton gin.
* The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross's flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp; U.S. Government Archives.
* The first crop grown in many states was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky producing 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th Century; State Archives.
* Oldest known records of hemp farming go back 5000 years in China, although hemp industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.
* Rembrandts, Gainsborough’s, Van Gogh’s as well as most early canvas paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.
* In A. D. 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 1935; Sherman Williams Paint Co. testimony before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.
* Henry Ford's first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the CAR ITSELF WAS CONTRUCTED FROM HEMP! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, 'grown from the soil,' had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel; Popular Mechanics, 1941.
* Hemp called 'Billion Dollar Crop.' It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars; Popular Mechanics, Feb., 1938.
* 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.
The 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...
...Now with Philippine and East Indian sources of hemp in the hands of the Japanese...American hemp must meet the needs of our Army and Navy as well as of our industries...
...the 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!'
Certified proof from the Library of Congress; found by the research of Jack Herer, refuting claims of other government agencies that the 1942 U.S.D.A. film 'Hemp for Victory' did not exist.
U.S.D.A. Bulletin #404 concluded that hemp produces 4 times as much pulp as
wood with at least 4 to 7 times less pollution.
From Popular Mechanics, Feb. 1938:
'It has a short growing season...It can be grown in any state...The long 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 can add immeasurably to American agriculture and industry.'
In the 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 Depression.
William 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.
Andrew 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. They even produced a propaganda movie called "Reefer Madness" (which is really quite entertaining, actually).
A media 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.
Films 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.
Congress 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 to fight.
HEMP IS AND WAS MADE ILLEGAL BECAUSE BILLIONAIRES WANT TO REMAIN BILLIONAIRES!
the 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
On April 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.
Dr. 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/is hemp.
Few 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 hemp 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.
Today, 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.
has 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.
ALL PLASTIC PRODUCTS SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP SEED OIL.
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 ARE MADE FROM HEMP.
should go back to the days when the AMA supported hemp 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. Hemp is only healthy for
the human body.
WORLD HUNGER COULD END.
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 hemp seeds is the best thing
you could do for your body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds.
CLOTHES ARE MADE FROM HEMP.
clothing is extremely strong and durable over time. You could hand clothing,
made from hemp, 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?
The 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.
liquor, tobacco and oil companies fund more than a million dollars a day to
Partnership for a Drug-Free America and other similar agencies. We have all
seen their commercials. Now, their motto is: 'It's more dangerous than we
thought.' Lies from the powerful corporations, that began with Hearst, are
still alive and well today.
The brainwashing continues. Now, the commercials say: If you buy a joint, you contribute to murders and gang wars. The latest anti-hemp commercials say: If you buy a joint...you are promoting TERRORISM! The new enemy (terrorism) has paved the road to brainwash you any way THEY see fit.
There is only one enemy; the "friendly" people you pay your taxes to: the war-makers and nature destroyers.
With your funding, they are killing the world right in front of your eyes.
HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY TOBACCO.
HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY ALCOHOL.
If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the Greenhouse Effect and stop deforestation; then there is only one known annually-renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world's paper and textiles; meet all of the world's transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time... and that substance is the same one that has done it before . . . Hemp.
As for the argument that growing hemp would invite abuse -- surely no farmer would be stupid enough to seek a state license for hemp cultivation, thus announcing himself to authorities and inviting inspection, and then grow pot instead. And no one who expects a high out of marijuana would try to hide a pot plant within a hemp crop. Cross-pollination would rob the pot of its potency. Either way, it makes no sense to let medical marijuana be grown, while hemp, a healthy food for all which is incapable of being abused, can’t be cultivated in the U.S.
must be utilized now, to help save our future.
We need a clean energy source to save our planet.
