2012 Brings Major Change in Global Cannabis Hemp Policy.

Despite the swirling torrent of Dis and Mis Information on the subject, the World’s relationship to a subject that has been taboo for over a hundred years is about to change forever. The reason for the global prohibition on Cannabis and Hemp is a very simple and surprisingly benevolent one. No NOT because smoking pot gives you cancer or makes you sterile or rots your brain, NOR is it because NYLON fiber is better than HEMP. Or that Petroleum based fuels are better then Hemp-based cellulosic ETHANOL. Not because Pharmaceutical synthetic drugs are better than solid (HEMPSEED Based) nutrition and exercise, none of these.

The simple truth is that the human global economy and culture has been tooling up to RUN THE WORLD using this wondrous resource, as predicted by JACK HERER, the man who devoted his life to exploring and publicizing the amazingness of the Cannabis Plant. Prohibition has allowed for the global segregation of the various industrial production possibilities inherent in the plant. As the genetic variations of the plant provide multiple useful products, it follows that it would make sense to structure the system that would deliver this production geographically, so as to maximize the ability to prevent strain degradation by cross pollination between the various strains bred for the various production needs. Now that it is all but over, and the ramp up of the global hemp economy set to begin, this information is important for those who have found their way to this article, and that is the reason that it has been cleared for public knowledge.

Watch as Cannabis Hemp comes into the mainstream, bringing great relief, but NOT only in the goofy way that all of you imagine… It’s much much Larger than that, seriously VERY COOL.

thanks to the group (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) that worked diligently across time and space to bring this forth, we are all eternally grateful.

I’ll say it again about Marijuana Prohibition

I have said it over and over, legalizing HEMP in America ain’t gonna happen. Industrializing the growth of marijuana for medicine in America IS going to happen, and it is for a good reason.

We are growing for the medicine part of the Cannabis pie for the world. China and Northern Europe get paper and clothes, south america for fuel, North America for medicine and Africa for food. global segregation of the uses of hemp provides protection from the genetic dilution of the strains that are used for their respective industrial applications.
.

It is as plain as the nose on your face if you try to find a rationale for the prohibition that goes beyond the little short sighted, greed based motivations of the “truffle-snufflers” who are in charge of making the segregation happen.

Jack herer prohesied that HEMP will run the world and what he says is TRUE! that cannot happen all in one place on the planet!!!
It is common sense…

Thoughts on petroleum oil, hemp fuel, and the agenda of Hemp globalization


Great bit of historical documentation!
All of it very accurate. When I came upon this information as a young man I was shocked that there were very few people who knew this information, and then PISSED because it was as if nobody cared. It did not stop me.
I have spent my whole career studying this issue. Over the years, I have come to a point of view that has been confirmed by some pretty high level intelligence sources.
There’s no oil crisis.
The only crisis will be what to do with it after we quit using it for fuel, because it keeps building up!
The oil industries labor of these many decades was necessary. It is a part of an effort to thwart glaciation cycling, as much of the cause of the glaciation cycling of the planet is due to the seizure of the crust to the mantle that comes from the accrual of biomass in the mineral oil deposits of the crust of the planet.

This task is well in hand and the crust is beginning to unsieze from the mantle as is evidenced by the increase in hwat is known as the Schumann Resonant Frequency. This is the base resonant frequency of the planet and had been holding steady at 7.6 hz, and is now sitting in the range of 11-13hz and climbing.. The planet is starting to behave like a gyroscope rather than behaving like a ‘top’.

So relax, “Slugworth works for Willy Wonka.” and a fantastic plan has been and is still in play, and it involves the struggle of the last several decades and the effort we are all making right now, to set the world up so that it can run with HEMP as a base currency.   What Henry Ford and many others including JACK HERER have been saying about Hemp is true. It will run the world. but not without some organization and attention to STRUCTURING these industries!!
😉

The world has been set up to run on HEMP by loosely segregating the industrial use of HEMP globally. The prohibition was required in order to do this.
The fuel is already being made in south America using the sugar cane pyrolysis plants there, as well as building new ones and making ‘e-grass’ plantations.
China will continue to make paper and fabric.
Africa will grow the Hempseeds for food for the world.
America and Canada will be providing the world’s medicine made from Cannabis.

We would not make good neighbors if we all just began growing hemp for all different uses all over the place…. your hempseed production would ruin the genetics of my seedless medicine crop and dilute the potency… there sure would be alot of seeds though!!!   You get the point !?
So much to my relief and surprise, there is method to the madness of hemp prohibition, thank god it is coming to its end, it was a horrible tough job, I spent alot of years being angry with humanity for being so ignorant lazy and selfish, and blaming it on the forces that are carrying out this agenda, when really they are not the enemy at all.
Despite the fact that this effort has been and is being made, HEMP is beginning to be sown everywhere for all purposes, and much of it will ebb into the regions of the world that have been set up.

If the efforts of those in charge of circumventing the cycles of glaciation that this planet suffers are failure, it will not matter anyway, we will have to start over again, which is getting pretty old to me, I would like to experience life after glaciation cycling on this planet.

Thoughts on the chemical ‘Feminization’ of Cannabis Seeds

“Is the ‘Feminization’ of Cannabis Seeds for the purpose of forcing the plant to yield Pistillate or ‘female’ flowers NATURAL and acceptable?”

Maji:

I grow traditional method, outdoors, THUNDERGRO™ treated, cull the males, and raise the females through the flowering process, and the use the graduated cull method to harvest the flowers. I feel like it is an important part of the process to let the seeds flower whichever way they wish to go, HOWEVER- I have experienced an ‘influence’ of older more mature flowering females over young undifferentiated (have not turned male or female yet)-
whenever I have a bunch of those (older flowering females) around, and also young plants, I have a HUGE increase in the number of the young plants that turn male! This influence must be happening by the females using pheromones or something, so in a sense nature is doing the same thing in a subtler way, soooo……..  still undecided on it, but lean toward the natural , NON PROHIBITION INDUCED methods and processes. I guess that would technically mean indoor growing as well..  tough to draw the line when we are a part of nature herself, so you are telling nature she cannot do anything she wishes!!! You see the conundrum I am attempting to reveal here…?!”

Breaking news on Marijuana in California

The California Supreme Court today struck down the state’s limits on how
much medical marijuana a patient can possess, concluding that the
restrictions imposed by the Legislature were an unconstitutional
amendment of a 1996 voter-approved initiative.

The decision means that patients and caregivers with a doctor’s recommendation to use marijuana can now possess as much as is
“reasonably related to the patient’s current medical needs,” a standard
that the court established in a 1997 decision.

“I’m very pleased. They gave us exactly what we wanted,” said Gerald F. Uelmen, a law professor at Santa Clara University who argued
the case for Patrick K. Kelly, a medical marijuana patient from
Lakewood who was convicted of possession and cultivation. “This makes
it very clear that all of the rights of patients under the
Compassionate Use Act are fully preserved.”

The initiative did not limit the amount of marijuana that a patient could possess or cultivate other than to require it be
“personal medical purposes.”

More Older Americans Using Drugs Illicitly

Report says marijuana is used by nearly half of older drug users
An estimated 4.3 million Americans age 50 and older‹roughly one out of every 20 in that age group‹have used at least one drug illicitly within the past year, according to a government report released today that offers an intriguing snapshot of aging Americans and drugs.

Those who admitted to illicit drug use included nearly one in 10 boomers between ages 50 and 54, and one in 14 of those between 55 and 59, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, which included a sample of nearly 20,000 older Americans.

Of the group that said they used drugs, marijuana was the drug of choice for nearly half of those 50 and older (44.9 percent). One-third (33.4 percent) admitted to taking prescription drugs for purposes other than their intended use. The survey was sponsored by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

The findings follow previous research from the agency, released last summer, noting that marijuana use among those in their 50s increased by 84 percent since 2002. ³For the most part, this is a group of people that, as they age, never gave it up,² Peter Delany, who directs the agency¹s research, tells Bulletin Today.
Marijuana use was more prevalent among those in their 50s than in other age groups, the new report finds, while nonmedical use of prescription drugs was more common in men and women 65 and older. ³We can¹t explain why more older adults are misusing prescription drugs,² Delany says, ³but we can say that those medications are more available than they used to be.² It may be, he says, that people with valid prescriptions are disposing of their medication improperly, or that some are sharing their medication with others.

The survey did not track the reasons for taking the drugs‹whether they were for pain or for pleasure. But, Delany adds, ³If this trend continues‹and we expect it will‹the number of those in this age group who need treatment may double this decade.²

He sees the findings as a wake-up call for health professionals to do a better job of screening older patients for signs of drug abuse or misuse. ³When I go to my physician,² Delany says, ³I¹m asked about my tobacco and alcohol use, but I¹m not asked if I¹m using drugs. Also, I¹m not asked if I¹m feeling sad or want to hurt myself.²

Looking at all age groups, researchers find that men have higher rates of all types of illicit drug use, with one exception: women between ages 60 and 64. They are nearly twice as likely as men in their age group to take prescription drugs for nonprescription purposes.

The potential for prescription misuse‹and abuse‹in older Americans is nothing new. In a 2007 study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Pharmacotherapy, researchers from the University of Maryland¹s School of Pharmacy in Baltimore found that one in four older adults had exposure to prescription medications with ³abuse potential.²

³Most are painkillers,² says Linda Simoni-Wastila, a professor and lead author of that research. ³And a lot of it starts out as appropriate. Older folks don¹t usually run out and say, ŒI¹m going to be a recreational user.¹ But they have lower back pain, they can¹t sleep, so their doctor continues to prescribe the drugs‹and they get hooked.²

She adds that she¹s not surprised by the new SAMHSA research. She theorizes that in addition to old habits‹the Woodstock generation holding on to its pot-smoking habit of yesteryear‹there is also new, growing acceptance and use of medical marijuana.

Although alcohol use was not included in the national survey, Simoni-Wastila says it should be. ³When psychoactive drugs are [used or] abused in combination with alcohol, it can cause a lot of problems. These drugs should not be used in combination with each other‹or with alcohol.²
