YOU CANNOT GET 'HIGH'
FROM *INDUSTRIAL* HEMP !!!

"In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. It is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man."— Francis L. Young,
Administrative Law Judge of the DEA, September 6, 1988

"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this [prohibition]."
Albert Einstein (My First Impression of the U.S.A., 1921)

Our Future is in Your Hands
First of all, YOU CANNOT GET HIGH FROM INDUSTRIAL HEMP STRAINS - because the THC levels are so low in these strains. Not all breeds are the same, just like not all breeds of dogs are exactly the same.

The Volstead Act of 1920, which raised the price of alcohol in the United States, positioned marijuana as an attractive alternative and led to an increase in use of the drug. "Tea pads," where a person could purchase marijuana for 25¢ or less, began appearing in cities across the United States, particularly as part of the black "hepster" jazz culture.

By 1930 it was reported that there were at least 500 of these "tea pads" in New York City alone. During the Great Depression as unemployment increased, resentment and fear of the Mexican immigrants became connected to marijuana use. Numerous research studies linked marijuana use by lower class communities with crime and violence.

In 1937, Congress passed the Marijuana Tax Act which criminalized the drug. From 1951 to 1956 stricter sentencing laws set mandatory minimum sentences for drug-related offenses. In the 1950s the beatniks appropriated the use of marijuana from the black hepsters and the drug moved into middle-class white America in the 1960s.

 

Hemp: Recreational Use

  • Similar to drinking coffee, beer, alcohol, wine
  • Like ALL drugs - NOT to be abused
  • NOT for school, nor work, nor operators of heavy machinery
  • NOT the "gateway drug" (propaganda)
  • Organic hemp is safer than synthetic drugs like prozac pills

 

Risks have been grossly over-exagerated.

"In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. It is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man."
— Francis L. Young, Administrative Law Judge of the US drug police DEA, September 6, 1988

"Vices are simply the errors which a man makes in his search after his own happiness. Unlike crimes, they imply no malice toward others, and no interference with their persons or property." — Lysander Spooner

No reports of a statistical linkage between hashish and violent crime have been published in known scientific literature, instead it has been found to generally inhibit aggressive impulses.
