About the pot...

It's really not about the pot.

It's about our freedom to farm and the sincere & legitimate ancient spiritual traditions of agriculture. It's about healing the atmosphere while feeding hundreds of millions of starving people. It's about sustainable economics based in abundance. Conceding rightful jurisdiction over any "herb bearing seed" is sheer madness and violates the First Amendment like nothing else could.

Did you know that six American Presidents (Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Clinton) have signed Executive Orders identifying "hemp" as critical to national security? Thomas Jefferson wrote that "Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country."

Nutritionally unique and essential, Cannabis seed is the only common seed with three essential fatty acids and is (potentially) the best available source of organic vegetable protein on Earth. Doesn't it make you wonder that the UNFAO doesn't even recognize the world's most complete food as fit for human consumption?

Hemp is also the only crop that produces a complete food and sustainable biofuels from the same harvest. Hemp also produces monoterpenes that mitigate climate imbalances through radiative forcing.

Reverend Roger Christie, founder of the THC Ministry in Hawaii is recently incarcerated, selectively targeted for standing up for everyone's spiritual freedom right now. It would help to let people know this is happening.
