If I had the power!

In the mid-1930's Popular Science magazine called Hemp America's "New Billion Dollar Crop." With the steel, oil, & timber companies holding most of the economic power in the nation, it was easy for them to come up with a plan to demonize hemp through effective propaganda, & misinformation. They insisted that hemp was nothing but marijuana, & it's use was just a dangerous way to get "high!"

Under pressure from these industries, the government passed the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, which imposed a prohibitive tax on all hemp products, destroying the industry & denying Americans one of the most beneficial crops on earth.

In today's world, over 30 other industrialized nations are growing industrial hemp as an officially drug free crop. The U.S. is the only industrialized nation still refusing to distinguish it from it's cousin, marijuana.

Check out the facts…

Hemp is – environmentally friendly – requiring little water – doesn't require synthetic fertilizers or herbicides – boosts health of the soil in warm climates – harvested twice a year.

What are the benefits?

Besides being a healthy superfood, so far does it seem like our government, & ourselves need to take a long hard look at the benefits?

A rich source of omega-3, omega-6, omega-9 fatty acids.

The only edible seeds that contain GLA, an essential fatty acid.

A highly nutritious source of protein, easily digested in their raw, natural state.

A complete protein, packed with essential fatty acids. More than almost all other protein sources, plant or animal.

Just look what benefits the oil holds…

Improve heart health

Lower blood pressure

Reduce inflammation, & improve circulation

Promote better digestion

Aid to weight loss

Boost energy levels

Maintain healthy cholesterol levels

Balance blood sugar

Inhibit tumor, & cancer growth

Anti-inflammatory

Are you getting the picture now?

Because hemp allows us the opportunity to live in harmony with the environment instead of fighting against it, it seems to me to be a huge solution not just to many of the problems facing lower income families, & the U.S., but 3rd world countries as well.

Hemp has a huge potential, replacing major renewable raw materials. It is biodegradable & able to replace plastics that would otherwise take hundreds of years to decompose, & in the meantime leaving toxins in our environment.

I believe that hemp could provide us with a healthier, happier world. Future generations could have a huge advantage, & we would actually be entrusting the future generations with something beneficial!

For this reason, the single law I would like to bring to action is "Legalizing Hemp, & subsidize American farmers to cultivate, & grow crops of Hemp!

There are many more benefits to Hemp. Do some easy research, & learn more. My source for this information has been – Alternative Daily
