My response follows the AlertNet essay
"Solutions have been outlawed because problems are profitable."
Cannabis (i.e. inclusive of 'marijuana' AND industrial hemp) is an organic agricultural solution to many problems that have been intentionally created by the chemical/oligarchy/military/industrial complex (COMIC). This COMIC isn't funny. It's a deadly, dirty-trickster controlling most of the (dwindling) resources used to fuel the current (failing) chemically-based global economy. The COMIC has installed political clowns to populate the government institutions (including the U.N) used to control "We the People."
Cannabis has been identified in seven Executive Orders signed by six American Presidents as a "strategic resource," critical to national security. A strategic resource cannot possibly be a "Schedule One drug" (definition - of "no possible benefit" to society).
In fact, Cannabis seed is nutritionally unique and essential. Hemp seed is the only common seed with three essential fatty acids (EFAs) in proper proportion for optimum health; contains all of the essential amino acids in meaningful quantities; is the best available organic vegetable protein on Earth; and is a source complete nutrition capable of growing all over the world.
Cannabis is also the only crop that produces a complete food and sustainable bio-fuels from the same harvest (seed for food and stalks to make fuels) while improving soil structure and fertility. Cannabis is a tool for organic agriculture that has not been available in our lifetimes. That's why small scale organic agriculture has been broken and factory farms are taking over.
The food insecurity and malnutrition inflicted on the world in the name of the so-called, selective, hypocritical "war on some drugs and herbs" (i.e. drugs don't make seeds, herbs do) is a result of the UNFAO failing to recognize Cannabis hemp seed as food for humans, let alone the most available source of complete nutrition for the majority of the world's population.
On top of all that, Cannabis produces atmospheric monoterpenes that reflect solar radiation away from the Earth and seed cloud formation. Radiative forcing using biogenic, agricultural production of monoterpenes and other atmospheric aerosols may be the most globally available, proportionate response to climate change that there is. Conversion from chemical ag back to organic crop rotations works with Nature to sequester carbon from the atmosphere and produce oxygen.
"Misprision of treason" is committed by someone who knows a treason is being or is about to be committed but does not report it to a proper authority." (Wikipedia definiiton). Under present the circumstances of national and global emergency, any person that fails to act on ending the prohibition of industrial hemp is clearly guilty of misprision of treason.
May 17-23 is "Hemp is Our History Week" when people across the US will be educating the public about the true value of Cannabis. In Sacramento, the California Cannabis Ministry will be challenging the rightful jurisdiction of any court over natural resources that are both unique and essential. By exercising "essential civilian demand" for industrial hemp, under the protection of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, it is intended that a week of education, debate and peaceful public civil disobedience will secure the relationship between agriculture and our freedom of religion. Our freedom to farm "every herb bearing seed" is the first test of religious freedom.
A revolution of values is needed to recover from the extinctionistic trajectory we've been on since 1937 when hemp farming was banned and addiction to chemicals was imposed. The question is "How bad do things have to get before all solutions are considered?"
