Here the spacing between hemp stalks is even more apparent. Inches apart, not feet.
Can you tell the difference...?
Marijuana plants are multi-branched, planted six feet apart.
"Swiss mix" marijuana
This is a field of marijuana. Note these are multi-branched, exclusively female, grown with plenty of room between each plant.
Harvesting Hemp, Noirmoutier, France 2003
This is "industrial hemp" grown in vast swaths, planted inches apart, pollen-producing males & seeded females mixed. Pollen from this field would make seeds in marijuana plants, rendering them much less salable on the black market. If the DEA really wanted to impact the marijuana trade they wouldn't be pulling up feral hemp in the midwest, they'd be encouraging American farmers to plant hemp, to naturally balance high- and low-THC producing strains of Cannabis.

The mission of the California Cannabis Ministry is to identify Cannabis agriculture as integral to a free society and essential for human survival.
The California Cannabis Ministry is meant to serve everyone, as an individual expression of our Article One, Bill of Rights, "First Freedom." The freedom of religion afforded by the United States Constitution secures our natural, god-given, self-evident rights that are also also guaranteed by several international human rights treaties.
"Freedom of religion is the freedom of an individual or community, in public or private, to manifest religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance. It is generally recognized to also include the freedom to change religion or not to follow any religion. Freedom of religion is considered by many in many nations and people to be a fundamental human right." -- Wikipedia
Anyone who has genuine appreciation for the Cannabis plant, for any or all of its many uses and benefits, is reminded that deep in our hearts, we are all our own ministers. I trust that others will be inspired by my example, but everyone makes their own choices. California Cannabis Ministry encourages everyone to start their own individual ministries. I believe it is spiritually and legally meaningful for each of us to openly claim our rightful place in the most ancient, truly global Cannabis culture, even if doing so is judged an act of "civil disobedience" by unobjective courts.
