Hemp is to marijuana as water is to gin

Law enforcement's supposed inability to tell the difference between 'marijuana' and "industrial hemp" is all that stands between America and environmental, economic and social recovery.

Prohibition of all strains will end as soon as the true value of industrial hemp is widely appreciated for its critical importance to mitigating climate change and addressing food insecurity & malnutrition. Cannabis is as essential to sustainable human existence on Earth as water is.

Consider the tragic absurdity if an equivalent excuse was used during alcohol prohibition. Water would have been "prohibited" because of law enforcement's inability to differentiate between water & gin.

Both water AND Cannabis are unique and essential natural resources. The availability of both determines either abundance & health, or scarcity & illness. If you don't know the true value of Cannabis, then you cannot possibly decide whether it is legal or not. Our government refuses to acknowledge the true value of the world's most useful, potentially abundant, nutritious agricultural resource, but it doesn't mean that "We the People" have to go along with the erroneous valuation of a corrupt government.

Cannabis hemp seed is the only common seed with three essential fatty acids. Because it is both unique and essential, hemp has never been within the rightful jurisdiction of any court.

Drugs don't make seeds. Herbs do. Every "god" that's ever been worshipped agrees that every one of us has been given "every herb bearing seed...and every green herb" as stated in Genesis 1:29, on the first page of the Bible.

That means essentially that the freedom to farm "every herb bearing seed" is the first test of religious freedom. End of argument. The world's oldest global culture doesn't require permission from a corrupt and dysfunctional bureaucracy to exist.

Cannabis agriculture is the best available proportionate response to global warming and global broiling, by increasing UV-B radiation. If people don't wake up to the fact that Cannabis is the world's most valuable and nutritious agricultural resource, then our species won't see the end of this century.
