I know some people are disappointed that Prop 19 didn't pass. You have my sincere and deepest sympathies. Now that that's over with, total Cannabis freedom will have the room to ride in on a different horse than expected.
The San Francisco Giants won the World Series yesterday! With about the same odds, we can end Cannabis prohibition before this year is out!
We can best use the energetic momentum and media storm surrounding Prop 19 to fling this thing into the Federal ring, by exercising "essential civilian demand for the "strategic food resource" referred to as "hemp" in six Executive Orders, signed by six American Presidents -- Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, & Clinton; Singled out by Thomas Jefferson as being "of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country. "
Jefferson also stated, "The greatest service
which can be rendered any country
is to add a useful plant
to its culture."
Consequently, the greatest harm that can be inflicted against any country is to remove its most useful plant from its agricultural rotations. Cannabis hemp prohibition is clearly a prolonged and insidious threat to national security.
A lawsuit for 'misprision of treason" must be leveled against the US "drug czars" who have misled the American people by promulgating a simple lie that crippled the hemp industry in the U.S. for seventy three years -- that it's hard to tell the difference between rope and dope. In fact it's easy to distinguish between high- and low-THC strains without even getting out of your helicopter. See my blog to see the differences.
The rationale for reintroduction of Cannabis hemp is plenty potent enough. This magical moment of publicly focussed attention on Cannabis will fade quickly if we fail to act. We can reintroduce Cannabis hemp to California by next Spring 2011, if we start RIGHT NOW! Ask me how.
Industrial hemp in California is sure to fly if Prop 19 loses. It's a classic opportunity to show the world that the people of California won't take "Just Say No" for an answer. With industrial Cannabis legalization, marijuana prohibition will fall away quickly as the two major Cannabis varieties balance each other out through cross-pollination. It has to happen to avoid global extinction.
I trust you won't mind if I repost this report I wrote six years ago. I can't find it anywhere on line anymore. It was apparently deleted from all original release sites. As far as I can tell (by Google-searching key words from the title) there is no transparent reporting of research activity in this direction at the moment.
Enjoy the absence of federal retaliation for Prop 19. It's our move to bring up the subject of industrial hemp, immediately.
Cannabis isn't illegal, it's essential. The following report takes on an ominous feeling in retrospect. Perhaps the prospect of such a grave mistake coming so close to having been made, that people will see the urgency of reclaiming our individual right to Cannabis, as the single voice of many hearts.
Love is the limit of law.
