It is too early in the morning, again. I awaken to the gentle sound of my son's quiet breathing. I wonder what I can do to be a better father. At home and in school he's doing great. He is healthy, happy, well-nourished, nurtured, loved and provided for. It is his future and the future of all children that continues to concern me.
Increasingly pervasive systemic imbalance, is suspended above every child's head. This awareness invades my sleep almost every morning. Observing the day-to-day transition of Cannabis value, from "illegal" to essential, it is as if a virus of ignorance has come to dominate our social evolution. If "Reefer Madness" was the wound, that threatens to terminate our existence on this planet, then the initiative process that obstructs timely progress to finally, completely and immediately ending prohibition is like a lingering, systemic infection disguised as a remedy, that will not go away.
Almost every measure of environmental, economic and social systemic health & balance, reveals degeneration into an unthinkable future for our children and grandchildren. In the face of imminent extinction we continue to accept essential resource scarcity, inflicted by successive outlaw regimes.
In spite of the fact that the contemporary Cannabis culture has had ample time and opportunity to become aware of and communicate the true value of Cannabis, very few of the people who work for ending prohibition will acknowledge that "hemp" is federally recognized as a "strategic resource" in seven Executive Orders, signed by Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Clinton, and Obama.
Very few people working to end prohibition seem to appreciate the legal significance of Cannabis as an essential, "herb bearing seed." None seem to take seriously the many inarguable differences between drugs and herbs; and that failure to distinguish between drugs and herbs has rendered Cannabis laws "void for vagueness."
Though hundreds of millions of dollars have been wasted on attorney fees, few people who have been busted for pot seem willing to stand-up and speak for themselves in court. Very few of the wealthy pot growers and medical marijuana moguls who are making bank slinging herb are willing to fund time-efficient strategies for ending marijuana prohibition completely and immediately.
All it would take is one 'pro se' class-action lawsuit, challenging the rightful jurisdiction of any court over any "herb bearing seed" to end all plant prohibitions. By now, only liars and fools fail to acknowledge that the "war on drugs" is counter-productive to its own stated objectives.
Considered for its multi-level strata of lessons to be gleaned, all rational, analytical analyses of prohibition reveals evermore profound level of disfunction. Once prohibition is finally ended, and all "drug war dinoswhores" either die or retire, open, objective retrospective analyses will reveal prohibition as a prolonged, incomprehensibly lucrative ruse, an obscene exaggeration of an intentionally failed, fiscally insane, malicious government policy.
Like income taxes. When people spend money they pay excise taxes, at the cash register. no personal accounting is required. The business owner's computer automatically separates tax from gross income and the government winds up with its share.
As it is, every year, countless hours of precious personal life, professional productivity, healing relaxation, home chores and priceless family time, are wasted on forced accounting. More time and money are wasted on audits, court battles, tax legislating, administration and other spin-off activities related to taxation of income.
Problems are profitable for people selling expensive solutions that don't work. Prohibition and income taxation are the two most overtly illegal activities of our government. As long as either of them remains, we will be neither free nor strong enough to oppose criminality at every level of society.
Failing to recognize the inherent criminality of prohibition, and the intentionally inefficient and publicly disempowering effects of income taxation, requires a level of denial that completely obliterates reality. To date, both primitive, inefficient, wasteful societal afflictions have, in tandem, effectively disappeared the backbone of entire generations.
Having defended myself in federal court twice, and testified on the record in many others, I can report first-hand that there is no power greater than the truth, plainly spoken. The Department of Commerce and the IRS have been presented with the limit of law, and retreated. Individuals have rights that organized groups do not. The collective power of each person's immutable, natural, god-given rights is unconquerable.
The evolution of revolution is revaluation. Thinking "outside the bong" reveals the true value of Cannabis as an essential "strategic resource" for several inarguable reasons. The fact that Cannabis is the only crop that provides complete nutrition, and sustainable biofuels from the same harvest, makes "hemp" mankind's functional interface with the Natural Order.
There are several other properties of Cannabis that make it both unique and essential to mankind's existence on this planet. Since humans have cut down half of the boreal forests to make paper (that could have been made better, cheaper, and with less pollution ("BeCAWLeP") from hemp); And killed half of the marine phytoplankton that used to emit atmospheric aerosols that shield the Earth from the Sun; Cannabis now essential for the timely production of stratosphere aerosols, called "terpenes" that reflect solar UV-B radiation away from he planet, and "seed" cloud formation.
There are several effects of atmospheric terpene production that can be logically assumed. Purification of Earth's hydrologic cycle by atmospheric terpenes seems too obvious to doubt. Redistribution of moisture in the atmosphere is another likely effect of biogenic terpene production. Changing atmospheric concentrations, and global distribution of terpenes from historic levels and patterns can be expected to have proportionate global effects on the systemic integrity and homeostatic balance of Earth's Natural Order.
Without exaggeration, it is easy to predict with a high degree of certainty, cascading, compounding, catastrophic results of continued Cannabis prohibition. Only a population stunned by fear and denial would allow their children to be sacrificed to extinction, while paying taxes to an oppressive, criminal, prohibitionist regime.
It does not take a voter initiative to conclude that the immediate judicial review and release of all "Green Prisoners" is an urgent priority. It does not take a vote to determine that all strains of Cannabis possess nutraceutical, uniquely effective, endogenously therapeutic properties, with unparalleled safety.
What court has rightful jurisdiction over your endogenous cannabinoid system? What court has the right to impose essential resource scarcity? The only thing that keeps prohibition from endings the unwillingness of the contemporary Cannabis culture to legitimize itself as the world's most ancient global culture. "Permits? We don't need no stinking' permits!"
If the grassroots Cannabis movement ever manages to get its head out of its ass, and direct funding to "essential civilian demand" for Cannabis, then future generations may have a shot at recovering environmental balance, and achieving symbiotic relationship with the Earth. If we continue to be misled into wagering our freedom on a popular vote to beg for flawed, incremental "propositions" ten we will continue to be misdirected into subservience to the monied elite.
The oxymoronic "drug policy reform establishment" has been successful in leading the grassroots by our trusting, easily distracted noses, pitching the end of prohibition as something far, far away.
So, if you are grass-fed-up with "bleating around the bush"; if the ego-rush of your "freedom to complain" has peaked and you're looking for the real deal, then remember what Frederick Douglass pointed-out way back in 1857, before the last Civil War: "Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never has and it never will."
"Essential civilian demand" for a "strategic" "herb" "of first necessity to the wealth and protection of country" and planet, recognizes 'time' as the limiting factor in the equation of survival. There so time or sane reason left for a popular vote. WAKE UP!
No, really!!! WAKE UP to the true, essential value of Cannabis! Hemp is valuable beyond the right jurisdiction of any court! If you have an extra dollar to invest in our children's future, then please help me help you help everyone. I apologize for asking, I understand money is tight, but time is running out. There is no money on a UV-Broiled planet. As long as the illusion of value continues to color the mass illusion of the majority, we have a chance to use the existing economic structure to effect meaningful change. As values shift, society will become more chaotic. Before the machine breaks down completely, and ubiquitous violence becomes unstoppable, we must direct coordinated essential demand, using all existing infrastructure to implement a massive global campaign of cultivation.
Cannabis plays an analogous role in maintaining the health of the Earth, as it does with each individual's personal well-being. Because mankind's industry has had such a huge, detrimental effect on the Earth, it is hopeful to realize that we could have as great a beneficial influence, were we to consciously coordinate the transformation of armies to "farmies."
Hemp is exceptional in being a non-invasive, pioneer crop. There is no better choice than hemp for expansion of the arable base. Since Cannabis terpenes nucleate bright and persistent clouds, it can be said with some confidence that hemp participates in making its own rain. As feed and cover for wildlife, there is no better choice than hemp. As a seasonal wind-break, as a healthful source of entheogenics, euphorics, holistic nutrition and Gaiatherapeutic industrial feedstock, there is nothing that even comes close to Cannabis.
Is it really necessary to argue this in court? Are we that primitive we cannot see how technology has limited our ability to "think outside the bong" about Cannabis? The only crop that produces both edestin and albumin proteins is beyond value on a planet whose fish are dying, whose ruminant meat animals generate significant quantities of greenhouse gasses, as beef processing consumes thousands of gallons per pound of protein, and pollutes the water with antibiotics.
There are several obvious dissimilarities that prevent a "strategic" "herb bearing seed" from being reasonably confused with a "Schedule One drug." It is stunning to realize that in the 21st Century, the contemporary Cannabis culture is willing to accept the wrongful jurisdiction of outlaw courts erecting economic barriers to Justice.
Whatever objective judicial oversight there may be, is needed to responsibly address the obvious, fundamental discrepancies between drugs and herbs. Obviously, drugs don't make seeds. Herbs do. Herbs also proved innumerable benefits to the Earth, to people, and to the animals with whom we share this planet. Mankind is far beyond its rightful authority in legislating scarcity of an unique and essential herb that other creatures also depend upon for their survival.
It is impossible to conceive of how many ways man's thoughtless disregard for Nature has resulted in a litany of unspeakable cruelties, inflicted on billions of our fellow-human beings; to say nothing of our species' complete, immoral disregard of the other creatures whom we are rudely crowding off of this planet.
There is perhaps no greater extreme of injustice than humanity's murderous cruelty and disrespect of Cetacean species. Whales and dolphins are certainly mankind's vastly under-appreciated Masters of Evolution.
The most urgent lesson humans have to learn, in order for all species to survive, is the thirty-five million-year-old economic system of the Cetaceans, succinctly described as "Dolphin Economics." Based in unlimited natural abundance, Dolphin Economics can be summed up as, "You help me help you help everyone." It is the foundation of peace.
Fortunately for us, Cetacean species are non-violent. Imagine if dolphins and whales were as voracious and aggressive as sharks, cruel as corporate gangsters and misanthropic as a prohibition-drunk, steroid-inflated, rogue police force, both of which are becoming increasingly common these days.
Cannabis agriculture is unique in its realistic potential to serve as a proportionate, global remedy. Because Cannabis is adaptable, capable of growing in a wide variety of soil and climate conditions, it affords the possibility of rapid, global abundance, on a purposeful scale never seen before. At this pivotal time in human history, our planet has never been more in need of a healing, herbal global remedy.
The national security of every country depends on systemic global integrity. Cannabis is unique and essential in providing multiple levels of healing, beginning this Spring planting season. Any person who has questions or concerns about how and why the absolute transition of Cannabis value needs to happen immediately, is invited to inquire.
What it comes down to is that over the long-haul of evolution, knowledge is of limited value in the absence of respect. Nature demands our full and immediate respect. That is why we have the inalienable right to demand full, immediate access to Nature.
Cannabis is an herb, not a drug. Making a "forbidden fruit" of marijuana only makes it more popular with naturally rebellious young people; and more dangerous, more violent, and more expensive on the black market.
Every problem anyone may have had with marijuana happened in the context of the "drug war." Counter-productive to its own stated objectives, the "war on herbs" has resulted in a hard-drugs epidemic exploding parallel with and analogous to mankind's consumption of toxic, unevenly distributed, industrial substitutes.
"Endless wars" are an inevitable consequence of the perverse "drug war" against plants. A vicious cash cow stampedes through the China shop of evolution, funding a run-away bureaucracy, reefer-mad and punch-drunk on its own self-serving opulence. What are the salaries associated with prohibition-related industries? That is the first place to look for funding of a massive global, biodynamic agricultural campaign, to expand the arable base.
Every possible effort must be made to plant Cannabis on a scale intended to replace the volume of terpenes lost with the catastrophic deaths of the boreal forest and marine phytoplankton.
There are also considerable environmental costs of prohibition to consider, characterized as "ecological disaster" by those who understand the dynamics of the failed drug war. The chemical-military-industrial footprint of Cannabis prohibition is insidious. When I think about the pervasive interface, throughout our society that prolonged, imposed essential resource scarcity has imposed, it is like an ugly stain spreading across the breadth of human morals and values, determining the unsavory character of our social evolution.
People are dying from viral ignorance, that has infected human governance. Corrupted values, disrespecting Nature, have been steering human social evolution toward foreseeable extinction, since before we were born. The inevitable consequence of a poor choice, based in a lie, irreversible systemic collapse has started. Unless there is a major shift in human values, we will run out of time sooner than we expect. Time is the only thing we can't make more of. We must recognize how irreplaceably valuable each and every single growing season is.
There seems to be something wrong. Perhaps I am mistaken, but a virus of ignorance is apparently spreading throughout the land. I see the world squawking nonsense about Cannabis laws, taxation and voter initiatives and wonder at the absurdity of a mad society spiraling our hospice planet into critical dysfunction. I read about epidemic breakdown of integrated systems, hear the IPCC warnings of "cascading system failures" within which humans have chosen the darkest possible role. Our fellow endogenous Earthlings are ill, dying and disappearing at unprecedented rates, crowded, hunted, and polluted off the breast of our common Mother, who feeds us all.
Corrupted human values, elevating toxic chemicals over healing herbs, favors corrupted political leadership. Instead of nursing with gratitude and respect for our Mother Planet, humankind has turned parasitic, feeding on toxins, fouling the source of our existence with poisonous industrial effluent.
Antiquated, inefficient and misanthropic, the morally-unaccountable influence of toxin-based corporate wealth confounds a foundation of Justice, insulting Reason. Human social evolution has been recklessly drunk on Gaiacidal industry, armed aggression and other industries potentiated by essential resource scarcity. Profitable feedback loops have been institutionalized by people who profit from their disregard for the future, or the suffering of others.
As it is, instead of basing our economics on Gaiatherapeutic, globally-distributed agricultural abundance, mankind has been shackled to the economics of scarcity. The limited thinking that scarcity affords, has been achieved by a simple, though very great lie, that can be defeated by a simple, much larger, abiding truth.
The great lie of "Reefer Madness" that lingers with us still (like a bad smell), is that Cannabis is an "evil weed." The lie is more than merely false. It is obviously contrary to what is true.
In fact, Cannabis is mankind's functional interface within the integrated systems of the Natural Order. Cannabis offers our species a way to achieve symbiotic relationship within the complex matrix of long-term, living interrelationship that defines and determines sustainable existence. Humans require Cannabis is proved by the present threat of global extinction. If Cannabis had never been banned, we would not be facing systemic collapse. Evolution demands that humans shift our collective values in a coordinated way to favor healing of the Earth. If we fail to achieve the degree of agricultural freedom necessary to heal the Earth in time to avert systemic collapse, our children and grand children will suffer the worst of an unthinkable future.
Voter initiatives are okay for deciding less critical issues, subject to decision by majority opinion. For matters of greater consequence and global significance, a different path must be taken. The present, tragic, insidious dysfunction is an untenable, inadequate, impotent response to the unprecedented threats we face.
Sean Parker's celebrated support financial support for AUMA has in some people's thinking, legitimized a brazenly anti-Constitutional initiative that violates the First Amendment. No matter who spends what on whatever nonsense is passed-off, under color of law, as a legitimate voter initiative, the fact remains that our freedom to farm "every herb bearing seed" is the first test of religious freedom. The First Amendment is the only law needed to reclaim rightful jurisdiction over "every green herb." Since drugs don't make seeds, it is a simple matter to tell them apart.
The legal distinction between drugs and herbs is foundational to the integrity of our system of Justice. What rightful authority is there in imposing essential resource scarcity? How can a democratic government claim to serve the "free market economy" when a federally-recognized as "strategic" industrial crop has been banned for almost eighty years?
Radical economic disparity, results from uneven distribution of essential resources. If everyone was to have what they need in their own bio region, then there would be much greater efficiency from production to consumption. The ecological footprint of man could be a positive one, if we were to work with all of Nature's creatures, with particular attention to our long-abused and neglected, sacred plant princess, the ancient, mythical diva we call Cannabis.
The challenge is simply to overcome control over public media, afforded by economic manipulatin, skewing the flow of information. The violent bent of human social evolution occurring today, is symptomatic of the illness afflicting the counter-productive, dominant political regime in the U.S.. Only a very sick country would violate its own Constitution. In a world of instantaneous, global electronic communication, the antidote to mis-leadership is as simple as it s fundamental. Now that the truth is available, there remains the task of letting people know where to look. I trust everyone who 'like's what I post on Facebook, and other social media sites, will share this view of where we all are, in the trajectory we're co-creating.
Beginning in March 2016, the secular, individual California Cannabis Ministry, will be continuing Project P.E.A.C.E.. By documenting public support for "essential civilian demand " Between the Dreams Productions will continue to advance society toward the inevitable, necessary polar shift in values from "illegal" to essential.
On the Hemp Road once again, on the Great Pacific Northwest Biodiesel Book Tour of Spring 2016. Cannabis information, instruction, products, books, DVDs and live, a wealth of international, on the road interviews will be available for screening to the public. This will be the twenty-fifth year of Project P.E.A.C.E., the purpose of which has been to shift Cannabis values from "illegal" to essential, in time to avert systemic collapse.
Anyone who recognizes the urgency of coordinating grassroots civilian emergency preparedness, is invited to visit the blog of the California Cannabis Ministry where a PayPal button awaits your generous support for everyone's freedom. Please visit my YouTube and Vimeo channels, as well as my Facebook page to see what I have intended to serve as due diligence in the polar revaluation of Cannabis, from illegal to essential.
The digital video documentary of "Cannabis vs. Climate Change" is available for anyone who would like to have the ready access to ancient logic and reason in a form that is intended to serve as a legally valid argument.
If you would care to have me testify in court, or otherwise present an holistic, biogenic, time-efficient, Cannabis-inclusive remedy for the global systemic imbalance we all face, please feel welcome to get in touch.
