The following is my response to
"How to Help Legalize Marijuana in California"
That's not the quickest way to "legalize [sic] marijuana." The quickest way to end prohibiiton is to recognize Cannabis as a "strategic food resource" as six American Presidents have done. FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, and Clinton all signed Executive Orders identifying hemp as critical to national security. Under present circumstances, failing to do so is a "misprision of treason."
All the proposed legislation does is concede rightful jurisdiction (i.e. perpetuates wrongful jurisdiction) over an agricultural resource that's both unique and essential. Now, you and the chemical/military-industrial 'quasi-gummint' may think that a murderous, immoral, economically and spiritually bankrupt regime has rightful jurisdiction over your freedom to farm, but I don't think so. Our forefarmers didn't die for the freedom to complain.
If we all recognize the true value of Cannabis as an essential "strategic resource" available by "essential civilian demand" this May in Sacramento, "We the People" can reassess the true value of Cannabis for ourselves. Cannabis agriculture, manufacture and trade are a threat to endless wars (foreign and domestic), chemical-industrial monocultures, and continued petrochemical addiction.
Don't be a fool. Cannabis is too valuable to be within the rightful jurisdiction of any court. "WAKE UP, STAND UP..."
Tax and regulate Cannabis? It will continue to be your worst nightmare. Bureaucratic over-regulation of Cannabis will bog down the free organic agricultural market at a time when coordinated regional production of organic biofuels and protein could make agricultural economics "Gaiatherapeutic" (Earth-healing) and sustainable. Government will give your tax dollars to Mons[ters]anto to genetically modify Cannabis. They will control the seed and our kids will have no chance at all for setting things right. That's a dirty trick on them we all are responsible for. Misprision of responsibility to future generations...
Don't go for the sucker punch. Cannabis has never been truly illegal because in reality it's essential. Farmers are better off self-regulating region by region to decide which cultivars* are appropriate for the local soil and climate conditions and begin acclimatizing seed stocks for desired production results.
Support "essential civilian demand" for Cannabis with the California Cannabis Ministry in Sacramento this May 23rd on the steps of the State Capitol, or watch as synergistic collapse accelerates. If you can't make the scene, send toxic petro dollars to me and convert worthless US currency to organic agriculturally-based "dolphin economics"**.
We have nothing to fear but the atmosphere itself. Time is the limiting factor in the equation of survival.
Drugs don't make seeds, herbs do. God gave us every "herb bearing seed." Our freedom to farm "every herb bearing seed" is the first test test of religious freedom.
There, now you know. Cannabis is more than legal, it's essential. Now go, "sow hemp everywhere..."
*"A cultivar is a cultivated variety of a plant that has been deliberately selected for specific desirable characteristics (such as the colour and form of the flower, yield of the crop, disease resistance etc.). When propagated correctly the plants of a particular cultivar retain their special characteristics." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultivar
