The Real Reason Hemp Is Illegal

The real reason Cannabis has been outlawed has nothing to do with its effects on the mind and body.
MARIJUANA is DANGEROUS. Pot is NOT harmful to the human body or mind. Marijuana does NOT pose a threat to the general public. Marijuana is very much a danger to the oil companies, alcohol, tobacco industries and a large number of chemical corporations. Various big businesses, with plenty of dollars and influence, have suppressed the truth from the people.

The truth is if marijuana was utilized for its vast array of commercial products, it would create an industrial atomic bomb! Entrepreneurs have not been educated on the product potential of pot. The super rich have conspired to spread misinformation about an extremely versatile plant that, if used properly, would ruin their companies.

Where did the word 'marijuana' come from? In the mid 1930s, the M-word was created to tarnish the good image and phenomenal history of the hemp plant...as you will read. The facts cited here, with references, are generally verifiable in the Encyclopedia Britannica which was printed on hemp paper for 150 years:

* All schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax paper until the 1880s; Hemp Paper Reconsidered, Jack Frazier, 1974.

* It was LEGAL TO PAY TAXES WITH HEMP in America from 1631 until the early 1800s; LA Times, Aug. 12, 1981.

* REFUSING TO GROW HEMP in America during the 17th and 18th Centuries WAS AGAINST THE LAW! You could be jailed in Virginia for refusing to grow hemp from 1763 to 1769; Hemp in Colonial Virginia, G. M. Herdon.

* George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers GREW HEMP; Washington and Jefferson Diaries. Jefferson smuggled hemp seeds from China to France then to America.

* Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first paper mills in America and it processed hemp. Also, the War of 1812 was fought over hemp. Napoleon wanted to cut off Moscow's export to England; Emperor Wears No Clothes, Jack Herer.

* For thousands of years, 90f all ships' sails and rope were made from hemp. The word 'canvas' is Dutch for cannabis; Webster's New World Dictionary.

* 80f all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction of the cotton gin.

* The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross's flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp; U.S. Government Archives.

* The first crop grown in many states was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky producing 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th Century; State Archives.

* Oldest known records of hemp farming go back 5000 years in China, although hemp industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.

* Rembrants, Gainsboroughs, Van Goghs as well as most early canvas paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.

* In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were in the works to implement such programs; Department of Agriculture

* Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937. 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935; Sherman Williams Paint Co. testimony before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.

* Henry Ford's first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the CAR ITSELF WAS CONTRUCTED FROM HEMP! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, 'grown from the soil,' had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel; Popular Mechanics, 1941.

* Hemp called 'Billion Dollar Crop.' It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars; Popular Mechanics, Feb., 1938.

* Mechanical Engineering Magazine (Feb. 1938) published an article entitled 'The Most Profitable and Desirable Crop that Can be Grown.' It stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th Century technology, it would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world.

The following information comes directly from the United States Department of Agriculture's 1942 14-minute film encouraging and instructing 'patriotic American farmers' to grow 350,000 acres of hemp each year for the war effort:

'...(When) Grecian temples were new, hemp was already old in the service of mankind. For thousands of years, even then, this plant had been grown for cordage and cloth in China and elsewhere in the East. For centuries prior to about 1850, all the ships that sailed the western seas were rigged with hempen rope and sails. For the sailor, no less than the hangman, hemp was indispensable...
...Now with Philippine and East Indian sources of hemp in the hands of the Japanese...American hemp must meet the needs of our Army and Navy as well as of our industries...
...the Navy's rapidly dwindling reserves. When that is gone, American hemp will go on duty again; hemp for mooring ships; hemp for tow lines; hemp for tackle and gear; hemp for countless naval uses both on ship and shore. Just as in the days when Old Ironsides sailed the seas victorious with her hempen shrouds and hempen sails. Hemp for victory!'

Certified proof from the Library of Congress; found by the research of Jack Herer, refuting claims of other government agencies that the 1942 USDA film 'Hemp for Victory' did not exist.

Hemp cultivation and production do not harm the environment. The USDA Bulletin ..404 concluded that hemp produces 4 times as much pulp with at least 4 to 7 times less pollution. From Popular Mechanics, Feb. 1938:

'It has a short growing season...It can be grown in any state...The long roots penetrate and break the soil to leave it in perfect condition for the next year's crop. The dense shock of leaves, 8 to 12 feet above the ground, chokes out weeds.
...hemp, this new crop can add immeasurably to American agriculture and industry.'

In the 1930s, innovations in farm machinery would have caused an industrial revolution when applied to hemp. This single resource could have created millions of new jobs generating thousands of quality products. Hemp, if not made illegal, would have brought America out of the Great Depression.

William Randolph Hearst (Citizen Kane) and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products. Patty Hearst's grandfather, a destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions because of hemp.
In 1937, Dupont patented the processes to make plastics from oil and coal. Dupont's Annual Report urged stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would have ruined over 80f Dupont's business.

THE CONSPIRACY
Andrew Mellon became Hoover's Secretary of the Treasury and Dupont's primary investor. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

Secret meetings were held by these financial tycoons. Hemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to go. These men took an obscure Mexican slang word: 'marihuana' and pushed it into the consciousness of America.

MEDIA MANIPULATION
A media blitz of 'yellow journalism' raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. Hearst's newspapers ran stories emphasizing the horrors of marihuana. The menace of marihuana made headlines. Readers learned that it was responsible for everything from car accidents to loose morality.

Films like 'Reefer Madness' (1936), 'Marihuana: Assassin of Youth' (1935) and 'Marihuana: The Devil's Weed' (1936) were propaganda designed by these industrialists to create an enemy. Their purpose was to gain public support so that anti-marihuana laws could be passed.

Examine the following quotes from 'The Burning Question' aka REEFER MADNESS:

a violent narcotic.
acts of shocking violence.
incurable insanity.
soul-destroying effects.
under the influence of the drug he killed his entire family with an ax.
more vicious, more deadly even than these soul-destroying drugs (heroin, cocaine) is the menace of marihuana!
Reefer Madness did not end with the usual 'the end.' The film concluded with these words plastered on the screen: TELL YOUR CHILDREN.

In the 1930s, people were very naive; even to the point of ignorance. The masses were like sheep waiting to be led by the few in power. They did not challenge authority. If the news was in print or on the radio, they believed it had to be true. They told their children and their children grew up to be the parents of the baby-boomers.

On April 14, 1937, the Prohibitive Marihuana Tax Law or the bill that outlawed hemp was directly brought to the House Ways and Means Committee. This committee is the only one that can introduce a bill to the House floor without it being debated by other committees. The Chairman of the Ways and Means, Robert Doughton, was a Dupont supporter. He insured that the bill would pass Congress.

Dr. James Woodward, a physician and attorney, testified too late on behalf of the American Medical Association. He told the committee that the reason the AMA had not denounced the Marihuana Tax Law sooner was that the Association had just discovered that marihuana was hemp.

Few people, at the time, realized that the deadly menace they had been reading about on Hearst's front pages was in fact passive hemp. The AMA understood cannabis to be a MEDICINE found in numerous healing products sold over the last hundred years.

In September of 1937, hemp became illegal. The most useful crop known became a drug and our planet has been suffering ever since.

Congress banned hemp because it was said to be the most violence-causing drug known. Anslinger, head of the Drug Commission for 31 years, promoted the idea that marihuana made users act extremely violent. In the 1950s, under the Communist threat of McCarthyism, Anslinger now said the exact opposite. Marijuana will pacify you so much that soldiers would not want to fight.

Today, our planet is in desperate trouble. Earth is suffocating as large tracts of rain forests disappear. Pollution, poisons and chemicals are killing people. These great problems could be reversed if we industrialized hemp. Natural biomass could provide all of the planet's energy needs that are currently supplied by fossil fuels. We have consumed 80f our oil and gas reserves. We need a renewable resource. Hemp could be the solution to soaring gas prices.

THE WONDER PLANT
Hemp has a higher quality fiber than wood fiber. Far fewer caustic chemicals are required to make paper from hemp than from trees. Hemp paper does not turn yellow and is very durable. The plant grows quickly to maturity in a season where trees take a lifetime.

ALL PLASTIC PRODUCTS SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP SEED OIL. Hempen plastics are biodegradable! Over time, they would break down and not harm the environment. Oil-based plastics, the ones we are very familiar with, help ruin nature; they do not break down and will do great harm in the future. The process to produce the vast array of natural (hempen) plastics will not ruin the rivers as Dupont and other petrochemical companies have done. Ecology does not fit in with the plans of the Oil Industry and the political machine. Hemp products are safe and natural.

MEDICINES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. We should go back to the days when the AMA supported cannabis cures. 'Medical Marijuana' is given out legally to only a handful of people while the rest of us are forced into a system that relies on chemicals. Pot is only healthy for the human body.

WORLD HUNGER COULD END. A large variety of food products can be generated from hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature. ALSO: They have two essential fatty acids that clean your body of cholesterol. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in nature! Consuming pot seeds is the best thing you could do for your body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds.

CLOTHES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. Hemp clothing is extremely strong and durable over time. You could hand clothing, made from pot, down to your grandchildren. Today, there are American companies that make hemp clothing; usually 50emp. Hemp fabrics should be everywhere. Instead, they are almost underground. Superior hemp products are not allowed to advertise on fascist television. Kentucky, once the top hemp producing state, made it ILLEGAL TO WEAR hemp clothing! Can you imagine being thrown into jail for wearing quality jeans?

The world is crazy...but that does not mean you have to join the insanity. Get together. Spread the news. Tell people, and that includes your children, the truth. Use hemp products. Eliminate the word 'marijuana.' Realize the history that created it. Make it politically incorrect to say or print the M-word. Fight against the propaganda (designed to favor the agenda of the super rich) and the bullshit. Hemp must be utilized in the future. We need a clean energy source to save our planet. INDUSTRIALIZE HEMP!
The liquor, tobacco and oil companies fund more than a million dollars a day to Partnership for a Drug-Free America and other similar agencies. We have all seen their commercials. Now, their motto is: It's more dangerous than we thought. Lies from the powerful corporations, that began with Hearst, are still alive and well today.

The brainwashing continues. Now, the commercials say: If you buy a joint, you contribute to murders and gang wars. The latest anti-pot commercials say: If you buy a joint...you are promoting TERRORISM! The new enemy (terrorism) has paved the road to brainwash you any way THEY see fit.
There is only one enemy; the friendly people you pay your taxes to; the war-makers and nature destroyers. With your funding, they are killing the world right in front of your eyes. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY TOBACCO. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY ALCOHOL. NO ONE HAS EVER, EVER DIED FROM SMOKING POT!! In the entire history of the human race, not one death can be attributed to cannabis. Our society has outlawed grass but condones the use of the KILLERS: TOBACCO and ALCOHOL. Hemp should be declassified and placed in DRUG stores to relieve stress. Hardening and constriction of the arteries are bad; but hemp usage actually enlarges the arteries...which is a healthy condition. We have been so conditioned to think that: Smoking is harmful. That is NOT the case for passive pot.

Ingesting THC, hemp's active agent, has a positive effect; relieving asthma and glaucoma. A joint tends to alleviate the nausea caused by chemotherapy. You are able to eat on hemp. This is a healthy state of being.
The stereotype for a pothead is similar to a drunk, bubble-brain. Yet, the truth is ones creative abilities can be enhanced under its influence. The perception of time slightly slows and one can become more sensitive. You can more appreciate all arts; be closer to nature and generally FEEL more under the influence of cannabis. It is, in fact, the exact opposite state of mind and body as the drunken state. You can be more aware with pot.

The pot plant is an ALIEN plant. There is physical evidence that cannabis is not like any other plant on this planet. One could conclude that it was brought here for the benefit of humanity. Hemp is the ONLY plant where the males appear one way and the females appear very different, physically! No one ever speaks of males and females in regard to the plant kingdom because plants do not show their sexes; except for cannabis. To determine what sex a certain, normal, Earthly plant is: You have to look internally, at its DNA. A male blade of grass (physically) looks exactly like a female blade of grass. The hemp plant has an intense sexuallity. Growers know to kill the males before they fertilize the females. Yes, folks...the most potent pot comes from 'horny females.'

The reason this amazing, very sophisticated, ET plant from the future is illegal has nothing to do with how it physically affects us..
POT IS ILLEGAL BECAUSE BILLIONAIRES WANT IT THAT WAY!!!

One word can make all this effort at giving marijuana a friendly face seem in vain: scapegoating. Look up the etymological root word "Pharmacos," in the ancient Greek.

by Doug Yurchey
One word can make all this effort at giving marijuana a friendly face seem in vain: scapegoating. Look up the etymological root of pharmacy, which is "Pharmacos," in the ancient Greek. It is foolhardy to think in the likewise manner that Hitler thought of Russia: that all that need be done is to kick in the door, and the whole rotten edifice, that has been this forty plus years of the war on drugs, will come tumbling down!
 
I've always wondered this right here..I would love to spread the news only if everyone i knew wasn't brain washed already, if i showed them this or told them this they would think im 'crazy..Man only if people would realize the truth
 
I will return to this article within 24hrs. from this moment(9:21PM, EDT, 04/28/2011, to make a comment......What I have to type will take more time than I have, at the moment, because of a pressing issue I must deal with.....This is one of the most wonderful articles/essays, that has been written on the subject of why hemp has been made illegal....It's nice to be associated with 420 Magazine.........TinyAgate3.
 
This is TinyAgate3; and I must apologize to the forum, because I typed that I would be back within 24hrs. of My last posting; and it's 11:45PM, EDT......Something that I had no control over....But I've returned to make this comment...............When it comes to what is legal or illegal in this CORPORATE UNITED STATES, it's because of the ok/approval of the people...In 1933, President F.D. Roosevelt, ordered the "gold" to be extracted from use in the public....The ignorant sheeple of America at that time(as of today), still don't understand how this was done without the "consent" of the public....It was snuck through congress during the Thanksgiving - Christmas holiday season(when there were very few seats filled at that time of the year), in order to get it passed quickly....The same thing happened in 1937 with hemp......And because America "THE CORPORATION", is under "PUBLIC POLICY BANKRUPTCY", without the knowledge of the masses, opens up the way for what constitutes what is legal or illegal....Otherwise, We all would be under "The Common Laws of the Universe", which excludes legal or illegal.....There is only room for what is "Lawful".......And everything that is said to be legal in this country, is not necessarily "lawful".....And because the "bankruptcy" has never been publicly disclosed to the masses in America, the people don't know how to operate within it.....This is what allows the CORPORATION to continually ABUSE the people, through it's lies and deceptive practices.......Keeping it illegal, is by "consent of the ignorant"....
 
Good comments are appreciated....And because of the ignorance of the law(which constitutes the illegality), you get persecuted through the courts, for not knowing how to defend yourself......The whole system is a fraud....
 
Two thumbs up Mr. Lurchey! The flip side to that is I fear that we may never come to our senses. Too much information on ANY subject is at a simple brush of your keys on the computer you have thousands upon thousands of different answers on any subject. It becomes so overwhelming you become confused and can't tell right from wrong. I like to call this Operation: Information Overload!! Yes..indeed.Flood the populis with misdirected information and being a monetary based nation (after all look at our money. It says in god we trust.What happen to seperation of god and state but thats another matter of its own)we are easily distracted by all the cool little electronic devices such as I-pods I- pads etc.etc and and with the war on terror (what a joke that is)keeping the people scared as well and then they reinforce the fear with patriotism.
Trust me the government has studied human behavior for one simple fact: Control!! Now with the decades upon decades of conditioning the populis by using television, the media,advertisments You name it. if it revolves around money, its more than likely they control it.
Now if I'm right about marijuana, there is no way in hell is the government will legalize it. The people would open thier eyes and truly see the government for what they are and that would be a threat to national security. It would leave this country extremly vulerable to unwanted, outside influence such as china who would love to watch this country crumble.
The legalization of this mighty plant has to be done with EXTREME caution.
 
cautious or not, it has to happen. i believe it will happen. you have to believe it will happen, or else nothing will change. the people have to change, and we are ever changing. it's just a matter of the right people, or right person, utilizing this information. just how it started, somebody needs to be influenced somewhere, and that's only because of the way our "power" within the government has come to be. nowadays it's virtually untraceable, our power that is, and that's truely what needs to be changed. we must create a filter, to rid our government of the bias it has succeeded in producing within the last hundred years, because that is our only flaw, we have bestowed our trust upon decievers.


so who's active in this fight atm? i'd like to be there when they fall :slide:
 
Why is marijuana become illegal, the issue is complex, in order to explain marijuana - the most useful plants to mankind is how to become illegal, we must understand why marijuana is how to become an illegal. In fact, all this originated in the beginning of this century, originated in the other two drugs - opium, and cocaine.

Opium is a very addictive drug (but the dangers to modern standards is not a lot) of opium, widely used by the Chinese people, the Chinese use of opium has its roots in the Chinese labor with opium to the United States. Industrial Revolution, they use opium to achieve a very excited state to accomplish some very tedious work, the use of opium, they can be a long period of dry working so hard during this period, there is no "reasonable wage" concept, a workers only way to survive is to work hard.

Since the Chinese workers is so good, natural Chinese people also in possession of a very strong position in the high-density jobs In fact, the United States before the Great Depression, white class had already started to hate the hard-working Chinese people, the white than the Chinese have obvious political advantage - they speak English, an official's relatives, so they can easily come up with a plan to repatriate Chinese home (or at least not allow them too much hardship relatives to the United States), they have created racism emotions, on the grounds that "the Chinese opium

This method is also used to deal with cocaine who deal with cocaine, the real goal - African-American.
Although cocaine does not allow African American laborious work, but another way to deal with the Chinese immigrants have effect, that blacks should also be effective to deal with this another way. The Negro Problem, racial discrimination is obviously a serious multi-majority racial proposal are used to hinder the ability of blacks to fame.
Claiming that cocaine article fleshed out blacks for violent crime, with the black of the cocaine is portrayed as the savage, the beast out of control, said a black with cocaine, killing four American politicians can be strong enough to take advantage of these racial discrimination remarks, the success of politicians who enact laws to prohibit opium and cocaine.

From next turn to marijuana, know that Mexican smoke cannabis in the war and Spain against the Americans called a break Wawei La generals, his subordinates as the god of vengeance, a marijuana There is also a song "I want marijuana" means a Mexican soldier, not the marijuana do not go to war.

The end of the war, Mexicans emigrated to the U.S. southwest and Mexican race relatively few. The work of many agricultural industries, they are willing to dry, and took the very low wages, but once the economic crisis to the Mexicans the same change was hate, white politicians off the increase in crime attributed to Mexican - but the police offering any support their statistics - in fact rarely and Mexican-related crime, but the politicians crimes attributed to Mexican cannabis use (in North America, marijuana, and black jazz related)
 
This is seriously an atrocious reason but of course I'm not surprised. So many laws have been created in the U.S. because of its affect on big business' ability to undermine the locals. I'm glad you put that information here though. I found this blog the other day that highlighted the same point. You guys might also be interested in reading it: Mark Tullius » Help Me Understand
 
the real reason hemp is illegal for social, medical, industrial because 'WALL ST HAS HANDCUFFS ON OUR GOVERMENT, & WILL NOT ALLOW
THE STOCK EXCHANGE TO LOSE $$$$$$$$$
 
Very good read. I knew some of the details, but you seem to know many more. With all that we do know I bet there is still so much we do not. What a shame that billionaires sold our country and planet down the toilet for money. And because the country was so naive at the time, we are still going down the toilet. I hope things change for my children and grand children. Thanks for writing this piece...

Ive always thought about that. Just wearing out my ink cartridge and printing tons of copies of these informational pieces that people really need to see.

Where do you think a good place would be to get the most attention on this subject? College campuses for one since they already have places for posting flyers. . . Any other ideas?
...wear a hemp shirt, imprinted with infobytes, and a website reference with this story ;)
