I have doubted religion since the age of nine, but there is one thing on this Earth that makes me want to believe.   I want to take this time to share this miracle I have found.  You may have heard some terrible things about it.  These terrible things are lies that have been told to you, in order, to hide it's true beauty.  Sit back and relax as I take you on a journey of enlightenment.   Please take the time to open your mind to what I am about to tell you.  Clear your head of any preconceived notions.  Please understand that, while I call it a miracle, it is actually the science that has led me to this place. 


               I will first address the issues some of you have because of a person may have wronged you in life.  That person was bad not this miracle plant.  If a person chooses to waste their life away, they were choosing to do that regardless.   So let go of that anger.  Breathe in and out slowly and give me a chance to tell you all the good the world is missing out on.

                Let's talk a little about the environment and oil.   Whether you choose to believe in Global Warming or not, doesn't change the devastation it could cause if it is true.   The safe bet would be to except it as truth, and to help reduce CO₂ emissions.  What if I told you that I had something that could be used as an alternative fuel, and it also absorbs large amounts of CO₂?  It sounds far fetched considering all the talk in Washington about still needing to find a solution.  Well my friends, the solution is there in front of them, but they turn away and ignore it.  They don't want the information to get out there, so I am taking it upon myself to let you know.   Feel free to pass this along when you are done reading. 

                Did you know that Hemp production was a huge part of this country, all the way through WWI?  What happened after that?  When did growing a plant become illegal?  Well the answer comes about during the 1930s when a company known as DuPont conspired to fight the production of Hemp, because they wanted to make money off of their synthetics.  They needed hemp ropes, and hemp clothing, and hemp oil out of the way.  Why?  Well look around your home.  Do you have a synthetic carpet made by DuPont?  Did you know Hemp could make a durable carpet without the harsh chemicals that can cause irritation in some people?  Do you have a nylon rope in your garage?  That nylon rope is made with toxic synthetic Petrochemicals that are extremely bad for the environment.  Hemp rope was used for centuries on sail boats.   The sails were also made of hemp canvas. 

                Do you really want to support DuPont?  You may not want to after I let you in on a little secret.  They supported Hitler and helped him become elected in 1932 around the same time they convinced the Government that marijuana was evil and turned everyone into social deviants.  Hmmm Murderous dictator or giggly pot smoker.....


                Now that we know the truth about DuPont, let's talk a little about the Government "studies."How about pot kills brain cells?  Well here the government was partially correct.  It does kill some cells.  Marijuana has been shown to reduce the size of tumors of the brain and neck.   As far as the sited study in which monkeys were drugged with pot.   Well let's talk about that study.   The monkeys were deprived of oxygen.  The brain cells were destroyed because they weren't allowed to breathe while masks covered their faces.   The study was flawed and cruel.

                How about Marijuana is a gateway drug?  Well, my friends how many of you consumed caffeine before the age of 18?  Most of you have.  Now some of you have then tried marijuana.  Still further some people have tried harder drugs.  It all goes back to that evil stimulant you all consumed.  Caffeine is the gateway drug. 

                Marijuana is worse for you than cigarettes.   How so?  There is still no link between cancer and marijuana, except that it kills cancerous cells.  Marijuana has never been linked in a single death.  That makes it not only safer than cigarettes, but also safer than aspirin.  It does not cause cancer, it is not physically addicting, and you cannot overdose on it.

                This takes me to another group that is lobbying to keep Marijuana illegal.  The pharmaceutical industry does not want you to know that Marijuana is a safer alternative to many of their drugs.  Marijuana can treat depression, PTSD, chronic pain, IBS, Epilepsy, Bi-Polar disorder, anxiety, GERD, PMS, and ADHD.  All of the pharmaceuticals used to treat these illnesses have a long list of nasty side effects, but they make the pharmaceutical companies rich.  Marijuana is the ultimate home remedy and they spend millions every year on lobbying to keep it suppressed.   As we speak, they are all working to develop ways to turn it into a pill they can charge you money for.  This jeopardizes our very health, and takes the freedom away from the people to treat themselves. 


                You see this one plant has the power to change the world.   It can be used as a bio-fuel ending our dependence on foreign oil.  It can be made into strong ropes, canvas, and clothing that last a lifetime.  The seeds of the plant contain the highest concentration of essential fatty acids on the planet.  The seeds are also the best source of vegetable proteins.   The oil is not only a super food, but it can also completely replace the need for synthetic petrochemicals.  One acre of hemp is equivalent to 4.1 acres of trees over a 20 year period.  Trees take years to grow back, hemp is an annual.   The fibers of the plant can be turned into building materials, such as, particle board, and wall board.  It can be pressed into paper that is stronger and longer lasting than paper made from wood pulp.  The Constitution of the United States was drafted on hemp paper.  

                It is a safer alternative to alcohol and cigarettes.  Alcohol kills 75,000 people a year.  Marijuana kills zero.  Cigarettes kill 400,000 people a year.  Marijuana kills zero.  Prescription drugs kill 100,000 people per year.  Marijuana kills zero. 

                Marijuana is the smart choice for both our health and the environment.  Hemp grows quickly and does not require toxic pesticides, and it can be grown any where in the world.  

It is time to demand our government do whats best for the people not for corporate profits. People first!

marijuana is not addictive. what people get addicted to is the feeling. caffeine is more addictve than pot. i've known HUNDREDS of potheads, some who spent years doing the wake and bake...and i can tell you that one day, they just stopped with no ill side effects. no cigarette smoker could do that.

great post, voted popular.

pamom24...the natural substance is not addictive. It's the shit that people put in it. Like It is not the tobacco that smokers crave but the nicotine.

Erm.. for all of you saying it's not addictive, then why is it that withdrawls can mimic heroine withdrawls.... Ever been to rehab? The pot-smokers have it almost as rough as the opiate users.

And for the record, when you almost get run off the road 5 times a day by douchebags that think it's ok to smoke a joint while they are high, while your 4 children are in the car with you, you might have a different opinion.

I see more high people in a day, out in public, than most do in a year, I live in a county that's famous for it's pot use and growth (Humboldt) so don't tell me it's "safe". Because that's a load.

You are right adamsmama724.  Marijuana is not physically addictive only mentally. Take it form an ex-potsmoker who use to smoke joints all day like they were cigarettes.  I was stoned 24/7.... literally....lol

   I quit cold turkey with no side effects no cravings nothing. Sure I wanted a joint every now and then but for the feeling not because my body was craving it. I haven''t touched a joint, bong, or anything else  in about 13 years.   It is fact that marijuana is not physically addictive.
  I am also a cigarette smoker I have tried 3 times to quick cold turkey.... let me tell you I wish it was a easy as pot to give up.

Like anything else in life if it is abused it can be dangerous. Nothing is 100% safe. But I think t is safer than some of the alternatives out there. Especially when it comes to certain meds and fabrics. Noone is saying people should sit around all day getting stoned out o their minds then get behind a wheel of a car. This aricle is about how it could help with things people use everyday.

 Thanks for posting this I actually learned something form it....lol.

 I still say they should legalize it
