Marijuana, like alcohol, is neither inherently good nor evil. It is a substance that occurs in nature. If abused, it can harm. If not, there are actually healthful properties and benefits to those who use it. Marijuana, on the whole, is much less harmful than alcohol and other “drugs.”
One person’s weakness should not negatively affect the lives of others. The weakness of some should not be justification for the use of force or tyranny of the State.
America must ask itself. Is the prohibition of a plant which grows wild in nature worth the Billions of dollars invested? Is prohibition of marijuana worth the lives damaged and destroyed? Is marijuana prohibition more important than the proven medical benefits of marijuana?
The Government of the United States of America has waged a war of lies against the American People for well over 100 years in this War On Drugs. Marijuana and Hemp have hundreds of possible applications that would be beneficial to Americans and the American Economy. Ending the War On Drugs, or at least the marijuana portion of it, would save the American Tax Payer Billions of Dollars.
Why, knowing all of this, would we continue to support a War On Drugs that has truly only been a War on American Liberty and the American People?
According to what I’ve read across the internets, etc, it seems that there have been two known cure possibilities for cancer (Vitamin B17 & 3-BP) and one known symptom alleviating substance (THC). All three have been legislated against by the US Government at the behest of Corporations such as #BigPharma and Dupont Chemicals.
The Cancer Industry would dwindle from a 100 Billion USD per year profit making machine to a mere 100 Million USD per year profit machine if 3-BP and Vitamin B17 were allowed to be fully tested and placed on the market.
B17 is found in nature (Apricot seeds and unpasteurized almonds, etc).
Marijuana, of course, could be grown right in someone’s backyard like bananas in Hawaii.
Marijuana and Hemp have thousands of other possibilities and could be used to make paper, plastics, etc. Big Oil and Chemical companies lobbied to legislatively criminalize marijuana and hemp in the early 20th Century and continue to do so now. Also, the logging industry has no great love of the potential of hemp as it would further erode their profit potential.
American citizens and the rest of the world are being swindled out of a healthy and environmental friendly replacement for petroleum and trees as well as being allowed to die by the criminality of the US government (GOP & DNC) and it’s Corporate Sponsors.
