Individual Spiritual Obligation

Every generation inherits challenges and obligations. We are all charged with evolving into harmony with the Natural Order, and preserving the freedoms won by previous generations.

Our gratitude to previous generations and our responsibility to the people of the future has been made with mindful consideration of countless sacrifices and the enormous courage it takes to survive, while bringing children into societies at war. To impose a false "drug war" against the free organic agricultural market is worse than self-defeating. It is defeating for everyone who came before, and all who will follow us.

The world's most ancient global culture does not require nor ask for permission to exist. Cannabis has been a critical resource throughout recorded history. Certainly, the primitive, wars-for-chemicals-based governments that presume to prohibit the necessary, full spectrum of organic agriculture and regional economics it affords, become less credible as the economy, the environment, and our social structures fall apart in tragic accelerating, synergistic collapse.

Only an outlaw government would continue to impose scarcity of the world's most nutritious seed in the middle of a global food crisis.

Only an outlaw government would fail to identify Cannabis an essential agricultural resource, educate people about its uses, and encourage farming of an abundant asset to every community for every creature on this planet.

The Cannabis plant has never been truly illegal, because it is nutritionally unique and essential. Spiritual dimensions of culture have always been based in sincere gratitude for the harvest bestowed by The Creator of all life, whatever name that's been given. Presumably, in the United States, the Constitution protects our "freedom of religion" which is ultimately individually interpreted.

On a planet being broiled by increasing intensities of UV-B radiation, experiencing increasing temperatures and becoming increasingly polluted, it is critical for mankind to re-valuate Cannabis for it's practical industrial uses, and as a "strategic food resource" available by "essential civilian demand." For these reasons, the cultivation of Cannabis is a serious spiritual obligation, shared by all people who know the truth about the world's most useful and nutritious "herb bearing seed."

That there are illegal statutes still being imposed by unobjective courts is no good excuse not to farm Cannabis. Faced with synergistic collapse of environment, economics, and social structures, we have no time left to argue. Unless someone can give one good reason that's true not to grow Cannabis, then this Spring is critical to mankind's recovery from the imbalances that have been inflicted on the free agricultural market for the past seventy years.

Our spiritual obligation to survive is an individual one, making spirituality an individual right, protected by our so-called "First Freedom," Article One, freedom of religion, in the Bill of Rights. Anyone who challenges my individual right of spiritual growth and development is welcome to express their opinion regarding my extreme regard and primary valuation of Cannabis.

I can demonstrate the value of this "green herb" in many ways, until they too will agree that it is a truly sacramental species in that it allows mankind to honor the obligation we have to evolve into harmony with the natural ways of living, out of love and concern for our children and the creatures with whom we share the Earth.

I wish everyone an abundant harvest and invite your support to revaluate Cannabis for what it is truly worth.

The End of the Argument

Since time is the limiting factor in the equation of survival, people everywhere are justified in taking responsibility for the true value of hemp, without further penalty.
Dear All,

The following are my feelings about the recent release by ENCOD regarding the UNGASS in Vienna.

Please contact me to support a federally enforceable end to Cannabis prohibition this Spring, under the protection of Article One, individual freedom of religion. Every planting season missed is gone forever. Depending on environmental, economic and social catastrophes looming predictably ahead, we may not get another chance to reclaim our Constitutionally protected freedom to farm as a demonstration of love and respect for all the blessings afforded by Cannabis. If the Constitution is suspended, as it could be at any time, then it will be much harder to recover.

I trust I'm wrong about the approaching synergistic collapse and the future is brighter than it looks, but even my optimism is wearing thin. We don't have any time at all to argue further about the true, essential value of Cannabis agriculture. Abundance of resources, evenly distributed around the planet, could be effective in disempowering the black market while creating the necessary, concurrent economic surge toward balance. Partnering with Nature to heal the environment, it is much more efficient to empower regional economics based in abundant, organic agricultural feedstocks.

If there's one good reason that's true, not to "sow hemp everywhere" then someone had better state it now, because otherwise, we share an obligation to overcome the intransigence, and begin farming everywhere possible, without further discussion. To do otherwise would require that someone take responsibility for the malnutrition, illness, and starvation of literally billions of people over several generations during the last seventy years.

In addition, the atmospheric aerosols produced by hemp are our best defense against global broiling, the most proximate threat to our existence.

It is beyond moral accountability to induce essential resource scarcity on such a scale. I invite inquiry and investment in the agriculturally abundant and clean biodynamic garden and farms economy.

for peace,

to all who helped to produce a fine statement of reason.

If I could be at the Drug Peace March I would carry a sign that said,


on one side and Genesis 1:29
"every herb bearing seed...and every green herb"

on the other. Spiritual dimensions of the ancient Cannabis culture potentially afford immediate legal legitimacy to individuals who claim their freedom of religion in a sincere way.

If I could be at the Press Conference I would add that because of it's exceptional nutritional value and enormous environmental benefit, Cannabis agriculture warrants in-depth, public revaluation as an unique and essential organic agricultural resource.

Prohibition of 'marijuana' as obscured the world's oldest global culture, inducing scarcity and fundamental imbalance.
