Cannabis activist Sarah Diesel talks about the benefits of marijuana.
This is just one side of the story of cannabis, the amount of lives destroyed by cannabis is high. It is strongly psychoactive, can in some cases cause pyschosis, highly addictive, cancer causing. Other than a few extreme cases for medical use under certain conditions, it is not a very useful drug. Far more negatives than positives. I have observed countless people start smoking cannabis thinking its just a harmless little drug. Ten years down the track they are hopelessly addicted, cannot do without, are moody, unreliable as everything revolves around getting high. Often they lose jobs, relationships, its nowhere near as benign as this women is portraying.
I have been researching this for a large poiortn of my adult life and have come to the conclusion it all started in the 1920’s with Yellow Journalism.Bear with me for a moment and let me explain, William Randolph Hearst, who arrived on the scene in 1887, was already in control of the headlines on a day-to-day basis because of his efficient business practice within the industry. He was able to produce his Newspapers at next to nothing by manufacturing the tree pulp used and controlling the channel of production down to his papers, the San Francisco Examiner, and eventually the New York Journal (Which became a leading Newspaper).He teamed up with Henry Dupont to manufacture the ink used in the New York Journal and the partnership began to grow.ALONG CAME HEMPHemp grows 4 times faster than the timber used for tree pulp by Hearst.Hemp grows annually and can be grown more timesHemp produces a better quality paper.Hemp can be grown in any region of the United States.Since Hemp grew so fast and it grew in every region, Hearst could not stop the middle class farmer from decentralizing the industry. Hearst knew that he could not provide the intellectual property to keep Hemp from destroying his industry and replacing it with middle class producers.In other words he was afraid of the free market. He was afraid of us… he had to stop it!Dupont and Hearst knew then that not many Americans understood the difference between Hemp and Cannabis. So they used it against the Americans by claiming Cannabis will make you rape and kill your sister if smoked, illustrating the dangers of inhaling by using grim reapers in their newspapers with joints. And people believed it!Time and Time again they would use this propaganda through the New York Journal, claiming that Mexicans bringing Marijuana across the border would sleep with White Wives and take White Jobs. They were also saying this about Black Americans who took up smoking and started the Jazz movement.Dupont’s banker was Andrew Mellon, Mellon bank of Pittsburgh (5th largest bank at the time). Andrew Mellon had a Nephew, Harry Anslinger. Andrew Mellon financially backed Anslinger and threw all of his weight into convincing the U.S. treasury that Marijuana is dangerous and it should be heavily regulated by way of taxation and prohibition.The treasury could use a program that would generate that much income for the government so in June of 1930 the treasury gave birth to the Federal Bureau of Narcotics.Ansligner hated Mexicans, Blacks, and Cannabis. He was on a mission to eliminate all of them. Immediately Ansliger waged war on Cannabis regurgitating claims made by Hearst in his Newspapers. (Success stories followed in the New York Journal).Then, in 1937 Anslinger approached congress with intent to fully regulate all Cannabis. The entire meeting was comprised of Ansliger making emotional outbursts and attempting to offer evidence, all of which was newspaper clippings out of Hearst’s Newspapers.With the exception of one congressman, all agreed and the act passed, Marijuana became criminal giving birth to the Drug War.Not to mention Hearst, Dupont, and Mellon were all filthy rich now and had their hands in official pockets.But the story doesn’t stop here. Andrew Mellon had to study the enemy, He saw what happened with Alcohol Prohibition and he knew it wouldn’t be long before the public caught on.Mr. Mellon then financed Pharmaceutical companies through government grants and private equity to try to create a synthetic substitute for the over 60 different medicinal properties Cannabis contains. (They have yet to accomplish this goal)If you look into the history you will find that fossil fuels would have never existed if it wasn’t for this intervention in the market place.CANNABIS CAN SUPPLY THE ENTIRE NATION WITH ENERGY ON ONLY 1% OF U.S. LAND. ALL CARBON CLEAN.(AND REMEMBER IT GROWS EVERYWHERE)This is where the Federal Reserve comes in. The Federal Reserve System does not want to see the decentralization of resources towards localism because if that were to happen the Fed would lose a stronghold on the liquidity pools it artificially creates. It would also mean they couldn’t use the Carbon Tax to consolidate wealth across the world.With Cannabis being legal and having over 25,000 uses there would be no way to compete against local and more sustainable banks.So, the Federal Reserve uses banks like the Mellon to fund the DEA and keep money flowing and keep marijuana illegal. The Fed knows that with Cannabis being legal our GDP would boom but not in favor of large monopolies like the FED, but quite the contrary.This is why I always say the day we legalize it is the day we end the FED!Thank you for your answers in advance.
I have never felt like this about anyone.
I am going to do my laundry and follow her like Jesus.
