The California Cannabis Ministry invites you to celebrate our "First Freedom" by participating in the "Cannabis Freedom" series.
Inspired by the U.S. Department of Justice's "First Freedom Project," the interviews and discussions celebrate Article One in the Bill of Rights as " a fundamental freedom on which so many of our other freedoms rest."
Because Cannabis is the world's most ancient global culture, with a long tradition of peaceful cooexistence, "hemp" and "marijuana" have enormously significant throughout the evolution of human society. The spiritual dimensions of the Cannabis culture encompass economics, agriculture, art, philosophy, and many other facets that will be investigated from a "religious" perspective.
In the spirit of sincere appreciation for immeasurable sacrifices made by those who have gone before us in the fight for freedom, the California Cannabis Ministry is presenting an on-going series of public access television programs, to initiate environmental, economic and social healing. By exercising "essential civilian demand" for Cannabis hemp seed, recognized in Executive Order 12919 (Clinton, 1994) as a "strategic food resource," we may yet be able to secure our "freedom to farm" in preparation for planting Cannabis, globally, for food, fuel and fiber in the Spring 2008.
Time is the limiting factor in the equation of survival. Every planting season that passes is gone forever. We the People have an obligation to present and future generations to secure the quality of life on Earth. Cannabis is the only common seed with three essential fatty acids. Hemp seed is also, potentially, the best available source of organic vegetable protein on Earth. Because of its true value, Cannabis has never been.
Thanksgiving to the Creator for the harvest is a tradition that bridges issues of food security and spirituality. The California Cannabis Ministry seeks to resolve the gross negligence of institutions that ought to be teaching people about the incomparable nutritional value of Cannabis hemp seed, rather than prohibiting the cultivation of it.
In truth, our "first freedom" was articulated, twice in succession, by the Creator, as quoted on the first page of the Bible (and equivalently, in all other religious texts), in Genesis 1:29/30:
"And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed,
which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed;
to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so."
Drugs don't make seeds. Herbs do.
Please join us for an open and honest, science-based discussion, investigating the true value of Cannabis agriculture, manufacturing, and the efficiency of regional, organic economics.
