In response to Jim Gould, Oct. 19. The reason you and 2/3rds of the citizens have been so in the dark about the facts of cannabis, is because your life time schooling on the subject came from the Rockefellers’ Institute of Refer Madness funded with train loads of money from he, his buddies, and tax payers. Today, at least ½ of those 2/3s are in favor of legalization. Back in the Nixon and Ford days. The first day they took office they were informed there was a 65 million dollar tax-payer funded fund to reward any research or educational institution, for finding something bad to say about marijuana. The rules to obtain that money were simple. If your findings conclude anything good. That is worth nothing. But if you can find anything negative, that’s worth a lot. It doesn’t have to be true, but make it a statement that is almost impossible to prove other wise. Such as, “it leads to harder drugs, it causes memory loss, and contributes to lung damage. Today, all those statements have been proven to be completely false.
The other 1/3 of the population eat, smoke, or both, cannabis in the form of herb or hash.
Don’t be concerned about pot induced accidents. That is non-existent. Many accidents come from, lack of sleep, low blood sugar, or from being mad about something. Hash or grass brings you the best sleep, gives you the munchies, and Mary Jane happens to be the Queen of the Attitude Adjustors. It promotes neurogenesis, while causing neuronal progenitor cells to proliferate, which in turn blocks dementia from occuring.
In the 40 some years hash and hash candy were injoyed by all ages. There was NEVER a report of problems stimming from its use.
In response to Nov 23, Marcia Johnston, Pueblo, Colo. Mrs. Johnston, you are a treasure. Your letter is a perfect example of the mind set of so many. Low blood sugar has contributed to thousands times more traffic accidents than one under the influence of pot. Everything I state in my letters are documented facts. Please read, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes” by Jack Herer. Ever since stop signs were invented, people have been running right through them without seeing them. The logical solution, is to make all stop signs in this country illuminated by solar power. That is one of the 50,000 products we will mass produce. We will furnish them to the public free of charge. They will be made by using hemp composite materials.
Starting in year 1860, Gunjah Wallah Co., 476 Broadway, N.Y. made hash candy for 25 cents and $1 per box. Sold over the counter and in the Sears and Roebuck catalog, advertised in the newspapers as totally harmless, delicious, and fun candy. Children and adults enjoyed the effects of this great mental and physical invigorator. The daily intake of THC consumed in that candy was more than the today’s pot smoker consumes in 30 to 60 days. For more than 50 years, there were at least 500 hash polars in the New York City limits. They experienced no hostility, aggressive behavoir such as child or wife beating unless it was mixed with Alcohol. Alcohol kills at least 150,000 people annually in this country not including 50% of all traffic accidents and 65% of all murders. Crancer Study, UCLA; U.S. 6 million dollar funded. Concluded marijuana users have the same or lower incidence of murders and highway deaths. More people in Colorado voted to legalize pot than voted for our current president. So why don’t you take your issues up with those cool people? Allow me to write my dribble on how we are going to stop our downward spiral, turn this country in the most positive direction it has ever and will ever see, stamp out world hunger, stop the drug problem, and save our world from destruction.
