"Freedom to Farm 2008"

In order to exercise "essential civilian demand" for hemp, before the Spring 2008, I am filing a
formal challenge of rightful jurisdiction over Cannabis with California State Attorney General
Jerry Brown.

Cannabis hemp seeds are the only common seed with three essential fatty acids, all of the
essential amino acids, and the best balance of organic vegetable protein on Earth. Identified as a
"strategic food resource" available by "essential civilian demand" in Executive Order 12919, hemp
is a critical tool for regenerating the soil, expanding the arable base and mitigating climate

Hemp sequesters carbon at the rate of one ton per acre per year, and produces atmospheric aerosols
called "monoterpenes," in abundance. Monoterpenes reflect harmful UVB radiation back into space
and seed cloud formation, protecting the Earth from "global broiling." Increasing UV-B radiation
has been shown to weaken immune systems, cause genetic mutation, and stunt growth in amphibians,
generally considered an "indicator species."

Conditions of environment, economics, and social evolution are rapidly degeberating to the point
of syergistic collapse.Hemp is a globally adaptable, sustainably grown organic crop which can be
planted in rotation to benefit other crops, while producing food, fuel, fiber, herbal
therapeutics, biodegradable plastics and biogenic pesticides.

Cannabis scarcity has crippled the free-market economy for more than seven decades. Article One of
the Bill of Rights could provide immediate federal protection for individual "freedom of
religion," if we claim it as a coalition of self-empowered individuals.

Time is the limiting factor in the equation of survival. Every spring planting season that passes
is gone forever. Drugs don't make seeds. Herbs do. Our "natural, self-evident, god-given"
Constitutional right to grow "every herb bearing seed" and "every green herb" demands that we
plant hemp as far and wide as possible this Spring 2008.

In June 2007, at the Conference of Mayors in Los Angeles, a resolution was passed identifying the
"drug war" as a counter-productive failure. The time has come to take responsibility and demand
accountability for the true value of Cannabis.

If you share a sense of urgency for effecting the shift in values necessary to transform the
extinctionistic "black market" into efficient "green market" then get in touch and get on board.

Posted today, to the Food Security and Nutrition Forum facilitated by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.

I feel that there must be one "best place to start" in unraveling the tangled mess of problems being discussed. Of primary need is consensus that the urgency of developing effective courses of action demands that ALL possible solutions be considered.

Most immediate, I feel, is the investigation of causal relationships between prohibition, poverty, malnutrition and food insecurity. Even cursory consideration of Cannabis prohibition reveals an institutionalized essential resource scarcity that continues to impose multiple, obvious and disastrous effects.

The fact is that the UNFAO does not acknowledge the exceptional nutritional profile of the world's best available source of organic vegetable protein, which is also the only common seed with three essential fatty acids. This is an omission that is a criminally unacceptable breech of public trust on a scale that defies quantification.

That there has been an under-reaction to the nutritional information I have posted, evidences resistance to open discussion of this subject. This is usually due to the social prejudice and fear confusing objectivity by mere mention of the word Cannabis. This reluctance to consider an historically respected, critical food resource must be overcome.

In the interest of helping people nourish themselves, while rebalancing mankind's relationship within the Natural Order, I implore you all to actively participate in an open discussion of the true value of Cannabis hemp. I trust that such a discussion will result in the establishment of agricultural demonstration projects in different parts of the world by this Spring.

If there is anyone participating in this discussion who has witnessed Cannabis agriculture as part of a regional agricultural dynamic, I encourage you to share your insights for the benefit of everyone.

If anyone feels there is another, more fundamental subject to begin with, I ask that you identify why it is more relevant than solutions presented by Cannabis agriculture.


"The FSN Forum is a global community of FSN practitioners with members in many countries across the world’s five continents. Already involving 300 practitioners from various fields, the Forum helps bridge the knowledge divide among the different communities involved in FSN policies and strategies, such as academics, researchers, development practitioners and policy-makers/implementers."

About the UNFAO Forum

Please join with me in calling for the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization to recognize and celebrate the nutritional value of Cannabis hemp seed through a comprehensive, global research program.

Currently there is an on-line Food Security and Nutrition Forum being hosted by the UNFAO at :

"The FSN Forum is an on-line community whose members share experiences, identify resources, provide peer coaching and support and find collective solutions to food security and nutrition (FSN) issues, focusing on FSN policies."

Please help me to convince the FAO to overcome the suppressive influence of prohibitionism, by taking responsibility for this critical food security and nutrition information.

Thank you.
