Some of the people some of the time.

A while back, I was "tagged", by another blogger, usa#1, who asked me to name, for separate purposes, 5 books.
A book that I propose to be essential reading to anyone concerned about the corporate psychopaths that have led this world to the brink of chaos would be one written by an American, Jack Herer, and entitled "The Emperor has no clothes".

The book lays out in detail the story of the hemp plant. How it used to be, until the 1930`s, practically the most important crop on the planet.
It gave us paper, food, oil, textiles, medicines, and so much more. He tells the story of how the oil cartels realised that crude oil could replae the hemp plant, and set out to fabricate a set of lies to destroy the hemp farmers.

How cannabis was one the major component much of the worlds` medicines, only to be replaced by synthetic versions made from crude oil.
George Washington farmed hemp, and asked every american to plant seeds of this important plant.

A quote, ""If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the Greenhouse Effect and stop deforestation; Then there is only one known annually renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world's paper and textiles; meet all of the world's transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time...And that substance is - the same one that did it all before - Cannabis Hemp...Marijuana!!""

And, "In 1850, 80% of all paper, fiber, fuel, and oil was made out of CANNABIS/HEMP in America and the rest of the world. This was before the discovery of coal and petroleum for energy in the late 1850s...before the start of the worst permanent pollution ever experienced on Earth... fossil fuel pollution (coal and petroleum)!!"

Of all the 300,000 species of plants on Earth, no other plant source can compare with the nutritional value of CANNABIS/HEMP/MARIJUANA seeds. It is the only plant on Earth that provides us with the NUMBER ONE source, and the perfect balance of essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, globulin edestin protein, and essential oils."

One of the leading opponents of the cultivation of hemp has been the american oil industry, as well as the pharmeceutical industry, and the cotton famers.

my mother and i have been discussing this very topic- oilmen controlling stuff not the hemp plant per se- and it looks like they will be at it again. it is truly disgusting. the talk of alternative fuel will bring these scums to the table and they will want to continue to make billions of dollars- so i have a feeling corn will be king. or whatever they have in mind. sometimes it is overwhelming.

Hemp was and is a remarkable, versitle plant- so useful multi-purpose....had relatives that grew it back at the turn of the century-1920's and then were told to stop by the govt- it has always been plant that the govt controlled- partly because it was also used to make money.....

In Canada they are planting it to Clean/detoxify soil- which is what they used to do also in the States- it used to be on one of the crops that was used to rotate with the Tobacco crops- which is also interesting becuase it also has been partly effected /diminished by the Tobacco Industry....

( but it makes great skin and hair products....)

thanks for blogging on it....
