There seems to be some ideational confusion
You see... there are three distinct areas
which need to be addressed in order to dispel the confusion about Cannabis,
Hemp and Marijuana.
Cannabis is medicinal
Hemp is industrial and agricultural
Marijuana is recreational
It is the same genus of plant - Cannabis sativa,
they're just grown differently to produce different results.
#1 - Cannabis is the dried pistillate
parts of Indian hemp. A pistil is the ovule-bearing or seed-bearing organ of
a flower, consisting when complete of ovary, style, and stigma. The stigma is
the part of the pistil which receives the pollen carried to it either by a bee,
a butterfly, or the wind. The cannabinoids derived from the collection of this
very sticky and stinky (good smelling stinky) substance is the part which can
be used medicinally and act as a powerful remedy for the relief of all kinds
of human ailments. Usually the best cannabinoid producing plants are grown at
least 4 - 5 feet away from each other. Cannabis is the medicinal side of marijuana/hemp.
It has been used as a medicine for thousands of years.
It was on the pharmacopoeia of the United
States until a United States Congressional Conspiracy ordered the American Medical
Association to remove it and placed a prohibitive tax on its possession which
grew into the current "War on Drugs."
#2 - Hemp is cannabis that is grown close
together. It can be harvested much like the cotton plant. There is no room for
the branching out and creation of the kind of flowers in the manner that is
common to the highly cannabinoid producing plants of the same genus. Therefore
it contains literally no THC (the substance considered too evil and potent for
legal use; some claim it is addictive, but it's not. Hemp grows to 14 feet high.
It is an annual, moraceous (look it up in your dictionary) herb. Its tough and
very strong fibers have been used for making ropes, canvas and fine linen for
clothing humans for thousands of years.
It can be used as a biomass source of
heating and automotive fuels, and while it grows, it uses up the carbons (i.e.
Co2) emitted by its burning to make oxygen. Dinosaur petroleum produces carbon
but no oxygen. Carbon is the element which is currently causing global warming
and promotes dehydration, cancers, and other human ailments. Hemp is the industrial
and agricultural side of cannabis/marijuana. Banning the usage of hemp has crippled
this country, our economy and our home planet, Earth.
The truly incredible aspect of hemp is
that it is actually one of the earths finest foods.
It contains a more balanced and complete
array of essential fattie acids which act to promote healthy digestion, mineral
absorption and balancing of the electrolytic environment.
#3 - Marijuana is the recreational side
of cannabis. It it the above first description of cannabis but used like alcohol
to relax with. Many very creative people have used marijuana to stimulate their
creative juices. Artists, musicians, entertainers, computer programmers, business
executives, house husbands and wives, and kids of all ages are currently smoking
marijuana to achieve an enhanced and altered perspection of their worlds. It
is currently obtained on a black market created by the imposition of laws banning
it as a controlled substance. The result of which has 600,000 individual Americans
currently (illegally) imprisoned and labeled as criminals by the judicial/military/prison
industrial complex. The banning of it has created a "prohibition Mafia"
style underground of drug dealers and gangs making the price per pound skyrocket
out of control. This is currently the worlds largest cash crop. Because of the
"controlled substance" status of marijuana, hemp has not been allowed
to flourish as it once did in this country.
The draft of the Constitution of the United
States of America was written on hemp paper. Congress tried to prohibit the
usage of Alcohol between 1919 and 1933 to no avail. No good came from that.
What was needed was good old American Self-discipline to maintain control of
alcohol, not a law created by self-serving prohibitionists. And guess what???
Marijuana is a lot less dangerous than alcohol. 400,000 deaths a year are attributable
to alcohol. It's legal? Millions die yearly from
tobacco. It's legal? More people die from car accidents than have ever died
from marijuana. 100,000 people die from doctors in legitimate hospitals each
Guess how many people die per year from
using marijuana??? O - Zero - Zilch - Zip - Nadda. NO-One has ever died from
using marijuana. Many have died in the "War on Drugs" however. Now...
Does that make any sense???? No!
Contrary to popular belief, smoking one marijuana cigarette
is not the same as smoking ten regular tobacco cigarettes. That's just more
Propaganda from the current administration wagging the dog while the tail is
pulling a fast one on you.
Oh! Dios Mia!
