Hemp is the key to legal pot


Hemp is the far bigger economic issue hiding behind legal marijuana.

If the upcoming pot legalization ballot in California were decided by hemp farmers like George Washington
and Thomas Jefferson, it would be no contest. For purely economic reasons, if you told the Constitutional
Convention in 1787 that the nation they were founding would someday make hemp illegal, they would
have laughed you out of the room.

If California legalizes pot, it will save the state millions in avoided legal and imprisonment costs, while raising it millions in taxes.

But with legal marijuana will come legal hemp. That will open up the Golden State to a multi-billion-dollar crop that has been
 a staple of human agriculture for thousands of years, and that could save the farms of thousands of American families.

Hemp is currently legal in Canada, Germany, Holland, Rumania, Japan and China, among many other countries.
It is illegal here largely because of marijuana prohibition. Ask any sane person why HEMP is illegal and you will get a blank stare.

But America is a religiously insane nation.

We hate common sense and we live to sacrifice virgins to some damn volcano - why?
Why did we stop going forward and why did we put the country in reverse?

Was it Reagan who turned this country from a world leader into a scared follower?

It's like the crazy right declared blue to be "an evil color," so nobody can wear blue anymore.
If you ask why, it's because God hates blue - what are you, stupid or something?

I'm so old, I remember when doctors and scientists were respected for their opinion.
Now they're useless "pointy-headed liberals" who must be mocked and ignored.

<>Why go to college and get a degree and then become a PhD in, say education or medicine
and then you lose an argument over autism to a lug-nut like the vulgar Pigboy who says,
"All those autistic kids need is a good slap upside the head?"

Pretty soon, psychiatry is going to take a beack seat to exorcisms and reading chicken bones.
All you have to do is pray really, really hard and we're almost there.

I am sooo tired of going backwards.
Pretty soon, women will lose the vote, Blacks will lose civil rights
and you're get a discount on your taxes if you hand a queer (with proof.)

Geez, you talk about "I want my country back."

America, you were once great - now look at you.
