Broadening the definition of "medical marijuana" to include hemp seed nutrition.
I challenge President Obama, Governor Schwarzenegger, et al to sign an Executive Order recognizing hemp as a "strategic food resource" (as did Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon and Clinton); and to identify Cannabis as the world's most completely nutritious, globally available, environmentally beneficial, and industrially useful rotational crop; in time for "essential civilian demand" being presented this May in Sacramento; and an intensive planting in every state of the Union, in Spring of 2010.
I further challenge the medical marijuana community to broaden the definition of "medical marijuana" to include the unique and essential nutritional therapeutic benefits of fresh, fertile Cannabis seed (both "industrial" hemp [sic] and 'marijuana').
I further strongly recommend that a ban on genetic modification of hemp be stipulated, and and self-regulation of Cannabis farming be entrusted to the farmers, through the National Grange and the National Farmer's Union.
The best medicine is the one that keeps you from getting sick in the first place. Our freedom to farm "every plant bearing seed" is the first test of religious freedom." Drugs don't make seeds, plants do.
