Marijuana Prohibition is Over; Let the farmers work!


And, exactly why are these people being arrested for planting seeds?  Because those seeds are related to the seeds which produce the dangerous drug, marijuana. A drug that’s so dangerous, our government has NEVER proven a case where someone died from it (by comparison, over two hundred people die every year from reactions to acetametaphine–an over-the counter pain medication found in Tylenol.)

Not only is cannabis (marijuana) safe, it has also been scientifically proven as effective for a wide range of medicinal uses that include breast cancer treatment and adolescent ADD treatment.  According to experts, like the one below who recently testified before Congress, cannabis is hands-down the best treatment available for teens and adults suffering from ADD and ADHD…and somehow, our Congress still pretends that our drug policy is not contradicting it’s own rules while destroying what’s left of this great nation.

The good news is, medical marijuana is already legal in thirteen states and laws encouraging hemp farming have already been passed in seventeen states.  With our President’s assurance that no more federal raids would be conducted against medical marijuana users who are in compliance with state law, our federal government has finally recognized the medical utility of cannabis sativa.  In doing so, they have declared the prohibition against this plant illegal under the stated definition of a “Schedule I Narcotic”–which has the following three provisions:

1.  The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.

2.  The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.

3.  There is a lack of accepted safety for the drug or other substance under medical supervision.

Now take a look at this video, pretend you are a member of Congress (without the kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies); and tell me whether or not you think ANY of these provisions are being met by the cannabis plant.  Tell me it’s worth gunning down kids and spending hundreds of billions of dollars just to keep us “safe” from a drug that is unquestionably safer than both alcohol and tobacco.  Tell me I don’t have a right to grow my own herbal medicine, which has been scientifically proven as both safer and more effective than pharmaceutical concoctions for literally hundreds of ailments.  Tell me one single benefit to society from our current (failed) prohibition, and maybe I’ll change my mind; possibly even vote for you in the next election…

If you are a U.S. citizen, please call your congress representative today and demand accountability for this ongoing atrocity; after all, it is our money they keep wasting.  Click here to visit Congress.org, where you can find all the contact information for your representative–and even send them messages directly.

    Politicians are 10 years behind the times when it comes to hemp use. People have been fighting for a long time against marijuana and pot prohibition with some movement going on now. Still too slow for those caught up in the jail system for possessing a little weed. Our freedoms have been trampled on by folks who know nothing about how beautiful cannabis can be for someones life, if one learns how to grow cannabis. Keep up the good work.
