US Should Allow Hemp Farming

To the Editor:
In a recent press release opposing legislation to allow farmers to grow industrial hemp, cialis sildenafil the White House drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske, has shown a stunning ignorance about the plant, stating ”all parts of the plant, including hemp, can contain THC (a psychoactive ingredient in marijuana), a Schedule I controlled substance.” In the world of scientific reality, the amounts of THC found in industrial hemp – even in the flowers – are so minute as to be meaningless. But the amounts of THC found in hemp fiber are so low as to be undetectable, which is why hemp fiber products are legal in the United States.

A few examples of the usefulness of industrial hemp are in order. Because of its resistance to degrading, American hemp was the best product for ship’s ropes and rigging during our American Revolution and financed a large part of it. The oil from pressed hemp seeds is both nutritious (highest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids) and can be used as a diesel biofuel. The resultant seed cake rivals soy as a protein source and has essential amino acids. The long fibers from the plant make an excellent source for fabric and high-grade paper (the original drafts of our Constitution were made from hemp paper). The rest of the biomass can be used as a nutritious animal feedstock. It has a thick root system with a taproot over three feet long, markedly lessening desertification (soil loss/runoff). Finally, since the biochemistry of the plant kingdom differs, the hemp plant does better with increasing ultraviolet radiation (think ozone hole), the rice plant does not, making hemp seed cakes a much more valuable nutrition source as we advance into the 21st century.

However, Kerelikowske also said ”America’s farmers deserve our nation’s help and support to ensure rural America’s prosperity and vitality.”

Every other industrial nation allows hemp farming. In a time of economic recession, we should be promoting industrial hemp for its economic potential, especially since the American climate is very suitable for producing high quality hemp and the world market is growing.

The simplest and most effective way to start this economic progress is to completely remove hemp from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration drug Schedule I, which prohibits it. This change could be made immediately by a presidential order to the DEA drug czar.

I remember President Obama campaigning on effective change. The time to start is now.

Drugged Driving… Putting Science In Prison

I just completed a 30 day trial of daily dosages of over 1.2g of Cannabis oil a day and I am now convinced that THC metabolites do mitigate the effects of THC. Colorado just started a “Drugged Driving Is Impaired Driving” campaign that is completely propagandist.  To infer that someone had an accident because they have Cannabis in their system does not mean it caused the accident, generic cialis for sale that is absurd to think that way. Look at the science and stop profiling us.

What ever happened to teaching people to take responsibility for themselves? I would never drive if I were impaired, viagra sales no rx but to tell me I am impaired because I am using Cannabis is an insult. Give me a driving test and you will see. I have police follow me everywhere, as I have Cannabis all over my Jeep, and I have not been pulled over for impaired driving. These ads are an insult to us as Cannabis patients.

This campaign may target all drugs, but 90% of this demographic are Cannabis consumers.  I support going after people driving on Ambian and other pharmaceuticals. I have lost a friend in Louisville, Colorado to a woman taking pharmaceuticals who drove over 50′ off the road striking John.  As a patient if I were to see these prejudicial posters in a dispensary, I would share it will all I can, because those that support this campaign have lost my support.  This is only going to hurt us as patients. This is just like RACISM*, the difference being that society calls us DISABLED. Why is our own industry fighting each other with this propaganda.

Where did the money come from to pay for all this advertising?  Wouldn’t it have been better spent telling the truth?

I am very concerned about MMIG, law enforcement and centers that support this. I believe that it is our responsibility as patients to confront this Drugged Driving campaign as it is demeaning to us as disabled people.  This is only furthering Refer Madness.

Beware that City of Indianapolis v. Edmond, 531 U.S. 32 (2000),  is where the Supreme Court of the United States limited the power of law enforcement to conduct suspicionless searches, specifically, using drug-sniffing dogs at roadblocks.

*Hundreds of thousands of us are in prison, have been killed, tortured and abused by law enforcement, and forced to physically build more private prisons.

UPDATE: I am now recording all my driving behavior as a demonstration to the fact that I am not impaired with the elevated doses of Cannabis.

Advocacy Update: Week of 8/15

This last week we met with a wonderful man who is a Veteran of one of our wars at the V.A. in Denver and another man facing prison for growing his own plants to make oil for his cancer.

Bruce is willing to try Cannabis oil and he wants to make sure he is following the law, cialis usa health but because he is from Wy, tadalafil viagra sale the residency requirement in Colorado is a problem.  Bruce was a cartographer for the Air Force and has a sharp mind.

I have been visiting with him, medical his daughter, and his brother, speaking with them about the endocannabinoid system in our bodies and how Cannabis may be able to reduce the size of the tumor in his bladder.  The medical doctors want to surgically remove the tumor, but will not touch it until it is reduced in size.  Most people go for the chemo-therapy or radiation at this point, but Bruce chooses not to take his doctors recommendation.  It has come to Bruce’s attention that Cannabis oil in high concentrations may reduce his tumor without toxic effects.

We also went to Bob Crouse’s hearing in Colorado Springs on Thursday to support his Constitutional Right to use Cannabis oil for his Leukemia.  His trial is now scheduled for December 12th and we are here to support him.  He faces the almost the same thing I went to trial for and he needs our support.
