Along time ago the pharmaceutical drug companies were trying to capitalize on the hemp’s medicine industry before marijuana prohibition. The doctors were prescribing to the children, grown ups, and the elderly, massive dosages for countless aliments for four or five decades. They could never figure how much to use because nobody ever overdosed. Those daily doses of THC were as much as today’s everyday pot smoker consumes in a one or two months. They could not then and never have been able to inject it thru a hypodermic needle.
Starting in the1860s, the Gunjah Wallah Company made maple sugar hashish candy, which soon became one of the most popular treats in America. For 40 years, it was sold over the counter and advertised in newspapers, as well as being listed in the Sears-Roebuck catalog, as a totally harmless, delicious and fun candy.
The Police Gazette estimated there to be over 500 hashish parlors in New York City in the 1880s and they had at least that many in the 1920s. Virtually everyone in this country was familiar from childhood on with the “highs” of the cannabis extract-yet doctors did not consider it habit forming, anti-social, or violent at all, after 60 years of use.
Big oil, the pharmaceutical industry, (Hearst) the paper out of trees people, the alcohol pushers, the Dupont poison chemical empire, and the mafia hated herb. So the rest is history. The big bad asses pushed, probed, bullied, killed for, and paid to make a couple of federal laws. They invested a lot to make it happen and it paid back in dividends exceeding every bodies’ greatest expectations.  It’s time to close this chapter, address the damages done, and head in the most positive direction this country has ever experienced.
The first marijuana laws in this country stated, all farmers must grow it or face large fines. In fact, it was legal tender, all taxes could be paid in tonnage of hemp. This was in the 1770s, when it was known by everybody, that hemp was crucial for the survival of this country.  In 1942 our nation’s slogan was “Hemp For Victory”.  The importance of hemp over rode the marijuana prohibition laws because of the biggest war of our history. Guest what?  We are now in the most important war of this world.  The war against global warming.  If we do not address this major problem immediately, we’ll be really sorry, but not nearly as sorry as our grandchildren will be. They’ll be completely screwed, because of our ignorance and arrogance.  I’m to the point where I challenge any man, woman, or group of, to a national debate for the world to watch.  I have the power to make anybody look good or very foolish.    T.C.
