Why a War?
Here is the plant that America makes war on. The reason they give their citizens is that it will save them and their children from drug addiction. But its citizens should look deeper for the reasons why their country has outlawed it. If the Americans were so worried about addicting their people they would not sell alcohol and cigarettes at their stores, nor would they push perscription drugs that alter their minds. The effort spent on outlawing this plant would be much better spent on how to use it. This is one of the many ways America throws its power around and oppresses an entire world over it. All for its own greed.
Everything that can be made of cotton, petroleum, or timber can be made with eco-friendly hemp! All paper, plastics, paints, varnishes, packaging, textiles, pressed board, many medicines and building components can be made with it, over 25,000 known uses. It grows without most fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides to foul the soil and water, and in soil and conditions other crops will not grow. It's fibers are the longest and strongest in nature. Canvas is Dutch for cannabis. For thousands of years all ships sails, rope, and most clothing were made with cannabis fiber.
Cotton is one of the most destructive crops to our environment, but as long as hemp is illegal some people are literally "making a killing" off of it. Just like the petroleum, timber, and pharmaceutical industries. In Russia cotton irrigation is responsible for the serious decline of some of the largest freshwater lakes on Earth.
Even synthetic plastics were developed with cellulose plastic technology. Henry Ford fueled and built a car with cellulose materials, primarily hemp. The plastic panels ten times stronger than steel. Neither he or Diesel planned on using petroleum as a fuel. The cannabis seed is also the single most nutritious thing you can eat and can replace the need for hormones and remnants in our feedstock which is why American beef is banned in Europe. All mammals, birds, and reptiles have cannabinoid receptors in their body which is why cannabinoids will revolutionalize medicine. Cannabis is proven to promote the growth of brain cells and destroy tumors. In Canada and Europe it is being used to treat Alzheimers, MS, autism, epilepsy, migraine, nausea, chronic pain, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, emphysema, asthma, Parkinsons, Huntingtons, Tourettes, Crohns disease and more. For some reason modern science is only recently beginning to study it.
One acre of hemp equals four of timber for pulp and is ten times more efficient than corn for ethanol production. Hemp is the single most useful plant on the planet and will soon be used for food, fuel, shelter, medicine, pleasure, and spirituality. The reason cannabis is illegal is so that billionaires can remain billionaires
