It is said that marijuana or hemp as it was previously known is dangerous, however it is categorically known not to be harmful to either the human body or mind. Marijuana does not pose a threat to the general public, but it is very much a danger to the Elite-owned oil companies, alcohol and tobacco industries and a large number of chemical corporations. Big businesses with unlimited spending power and influence have suppressed the truth from the people. The truth is that, if marijuana, in its several forms like oz seeds, was utilised for its vast array of commercial products and benefits, it would create a second industrial revolution all on its own. The truth is again that the super-rich have conspired to spread disinformation about a plant that, if used correctly, would ruin their companies. You may have noticed the same recurring theme here!?
Where did the word ‘marijuana’ come from? In the mid-1930s, the ‘m-word’ was created from an obscure Spanish slang word to tarnish the good image and phenomenal history of the hemp plant. The facts cited here with references, are generally verifiable in the Encyclopaedia Britannica which was printed on hemp paper for 150 years:
“All schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax paper until the 1880s.” Jack Frazier, Hemp Paper Reconsidered 1974
“It was legal to pay taxes with hemp in America from 1631 until the early 1800s.” LA Times, 12th August 1981
“Refusing to grow hemp in America during the 17th and 18th centuries was against the law! You could be jailed in Virginia for refusing to grow hemp from 1763 to 1769”. G. M. Herdon, Hemp in Colonial Virginia
“Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first paper mills in America and it processed hemp. Also, the War of 1812 was fought over hemp. Napoleon wanted to cut off Moscow’s export to England.” Jack Herer, Emperor Wears No Clothes
“For thousands of years, 90% of all ships’ sails and rope were made from hemp. The word ‘canvas’ is Dutch for cannabis”. Webster’s New World Dictionary
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers grew hemp. (Washington and Jefferson Diaries). Jefferson smuggled hemp seeds from China to France and thence to America.
80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, bed sheets, etc., were made from hemp until the 1820s, with the introduction of the cotton gin.
The first Bibles, maps, charts and the first drafts of the US Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp.
The first crop grown in many states was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky which produced 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th century.
According to the information from Missouri Green Team, the oldest known records of hemp farming go back 5000 years in China, although hemp industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.
Rembrandt’s, Van Gogh’s, Gainsborough’s, as well as most early canvas paintings, were principally painted on hemp linen.
In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees would need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were in the works to implement these programs. (US Department of Agriculture Archives.)
“Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937. 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935.” Sherman Williams Paint Co, testimony before the US Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act
“Henry Ford’s first Model-T car was built to run on hemp fuel and the car itself was constructed from hemp. On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, ‘grown from the soil,’ had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel.” Popular Mechanics, 1941
William Randolph Hearst and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing division of Kimberly Clark owned a vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products. Hearst, a destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions because of hemp.
In 1937, DuPont patented the processes to make plastics from oil and coal. DuPont’s Annual Report urged shareholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would have ruined over 80% of DuPont’s business.
Andrew Mellon became Hoover’s Secretary of the Treasury and DuPont’s primary investor. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. Subsequently, secret meetings were held by these financial tycoons and as a result, hemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion-dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to be eradicated. These men took an obscure Mexican slang word: ‘marijuana’ and pushed it into the consciousness of America.
A media blitz of ‘yellow’ journalism raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. Hearst’s newspapers ran stories emphasizing the horrors of marijuana. The menace of marijuana made headlines and readers were told that it was responsible for everything from car accidents to low morality.
Films like Reefer Madness (1936), Marijuana: Assassin of Youth (1935) and Marijuana: The Devil’s Weed (1936) were propaganda hit-pieces designed by these Elites to create an enemy and their purpose was to gain public support so that anti-marijuana laws could be passed. In the film ‘Reefer Madness’, hemp (marijuana) is referred to as ‘a violent narcotic’. It instigates ‘acts of shocking violence’ and causes ‘incurable insanity’ and ‘soul-destroying effects’ and even contains quotes such as ‘under the influence of the drug he killed his entire family with an axe’ and ‘more vicious, more deadly even than these soul-destroying drugs (heroin, cocaine) is the menace of marijuana!’
Reefer Madness did not end with the usual ‘the end.’ The film concluded with these emotive words plastered on the screen ‘Tell your children.’ In the 1930s, most people were very naive, even to the point of ignorance. The masses were much like sheep waiting to be led by the few in power and were easily manipulated en masse. They did not often challenge authority and so if the news was in print or on the radio, they believed it just had to be true. This ‘knowledge’ was passed down to their children who grew up to be the parents of the baby-boomers.
“Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit . . . unnatural?” Bill Hicks, comedian
On the 14th April 1937, the prohibitive Marijuana Tax Law, the bill that outlawed hemp was directly brought to the House Ways and Means Committee in the US. This committee is the only one that can introduce a bill to the House floor without it being debated by other committees. The Chairman of the US Senate, Ways and Means Committee at the time, Robert Doughton, was a DuPont puppet and dupe and he ensured that the bill would pass through Congress.
Dr. James Woodward, a physician and attorney, testified too late on behalf of the American Medical Association. He told the committee that the reason the AMA had not denounced the Marijuana Tax Law sooner was that the Association had just discovered that marijuana was hemp. Few people, at the time, realized that the deadly menace they had been reading about on Hearst’s front pages was in fact, harmless hemp. The AMA understood cannabis to be a medicine found in numerous healing products sold over the last hundred years.
So, in September of 1937, hemp duly became illegal and the single-most useful crop known to man became a ‘drug’ overnight and our planet has been suffering ever since. Congress banned hemp because it was said to be the most violence-causing drug known. Harry Anslinger, head of the Drug Commission for 31 years, promoted the idea that marijuana made users act extremely violently and in the 1950s, under the Communist threat of McCarthyism, he then stated the exact opposite, marijuana will pacify them so much that soldiers would not want to fight.
Today, the planet is in a desperate ecological state as large tracts of rain forests disappear at the behest of the corporate Elite. Pollution, poisons and chemicals are killing people but arguably, all this could be reversed if we industrialised hemp once again. Natural biomass could provide all of the planet’s energy needs that are currently supplied by fossil fuels. Oil and Gas based fuels are controlled and monopolised by the rich to make extravagant profits to the detriment of the many and we desperately need a renewable resource of energy. Hemp could easily be the solution to soaring fuel prices and scarcity.
Hemp has a higher quality fibre than wood fibre. Far fewer caustic chemicals are required to make paper from hemp than from trees and hemp paper does not turn yellow and is extremely durable. The plant grows quickly to maturity in one season where trees take a lifetime.
All plastic products could be made from hempseed oil found on Strain Sanity. Hemp-based plastics are biodegradable and so over time, they would naturally break-down and not cause harm to the environment, whereas oil-based plastics, the ones we are very familiar with, help ruin nature. They do not break-down easily and remain in the ecosystems for hundreds, if not thousands of years. The process to produce the vast array of natural (hempen) plastics will not ruin the rivers as DuPont and other petrochemical companies have done but unfortunately a caring, sharing, ecologically-based strategy does not fit in with the profit-generation of the oil industry and the political machine. There are no indecent amounts of profit to be made going down that particular road whereas hemp-based products on the other hand are safe and natural.
Medicines could also be made from hemp. It is not that long ago that the AMA supported cannabis-based cures but now ‘medical’ marijuana is provided legally to only a handful of people while the rest of us are forced into a system that relies on artificial, mostly harmful chemicals. Marijuana is actually beneficial to the human body in so many ways.
A large variety of food products can also be generated from hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature and also they contain two essential fatty acids that cleanse the human body. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in nature and consuming raw, uncooked hemp seeds is extremely beneficial for the human body.
Hemp-made clothing is extremely strong and durable over time unlike the cheap artificial fabrics today that tear and wear thin far too easily. Today, there are some companies that make hemp clothing, but hemp fabrics should be everywhere. Instead, they are almost underground and superior hemp products are not allowed advertising space on Elite-owned television stations.
Kentucky, once the top hemp producing state in America, made it illegal to wear hemp clothing. Can you imagine being thrown into jail for wearing quality jeans?
The alcohol, tobacco and oil companies spend billions funding campaigns and propaganda against illegal drugs including marijuana. The lies from the powerful, Elite corporations that began with Hearst are still as numerous today. The brainwashing continues and marijuana is being portrayed more and more as the enemy.
In fact, there is only one enemy, the people to whom we pay our taxes, the war-makers, the corporate and financial gangsters and the destroyers of nature for profit. With our funding, they are destroying the Earth before our eyes. Millions of deaths worldwide each year are caused by tobacco and millions more by alcohol but no-one has ever, ever died from marijuana. In the entire history of the human race, not one death can be knowingly attributed to cannabis. Our society has outlawed hemp but condones and promotes the use of the real killers, tobacco and alcohol. Why would this be? Because it is all done in the name of profits and the depopulation agenda.
Hemp should be declassified as a drug and its many benefits should be harnessed to help the human race. Stress, hardening and constriction of the arteries are but two examples of conditions that can be cured by the use of hemp and indeed ingesting THC, hemp’s active agent, has a positive effect in relieving asthma and also the nausea caused by chemotherapy.
There is also much evidence to prove that one’s creative abilities can be enhanced under the influence of marijuana, but of course that is probably reason enough for it to be banned, if true. It is, in fact the exact opposite state of mind and body as the drunken state, one can be more aware with marijuana. However, as I have mentioned several times, the last thing our Elite rulers want or need is an alert, clear-thinking, creative population. That would be far too dangerous to their ambitions.
Strangely, the hemp plant is thought by many to be an alien plant. There is plenty of physical evidence that cannabis is not like any other plant on this planet and so is it possible that it was brought here for the benefit of humanity, by our ancient alien ancestors? Hemp is the only known plant in which the males and the females appear very different, physically. It is most unusual to speak of males and females in regard to the plant kingdom because plants do not overtly show their sexes. To determine the sex of a normal, earthly plant, its DNA must be examined. A male potato plant, for example looks exactly like a female potato plant. The hemp plant however has a uniquely (amongst the plant kingdom) overt, intense sexuality.
So, in summary, the reason this amazingly useful, very sophisticated, possibly alien plant is illegal has nothing to do with how it physically affects us. Marijuana is illegal because billionaires wish to remain billionaires.
