    Taboos Protect Deceitful Beliefs

    During the Middle Ages there was a weather event dubbed the Little Ice Age. Many people died because of failing crops due to a much colder climate. Potatoes could still be grown but people refused to grow or eat them; they chose starvation instead. They did so because church leaders including a pope declared potatoes the devil's food because they grow beneath the ground.

    Today, there exists a plant that can produce 1,000 gallons of methanol alcohol fuel per acre, compared to 350 gallons of ethanol produced from corn. Some 60 to 70 gallons of high grade lubricating oil per acre can be produced; combine the alcohol and oil and you have bio-diesel.

    This level of production would certainly reduce our dependency on big-money oil without raising food costs.

    In addition to fuel, 20,000 often superior, lower cost products can be derived from it such as cosmetics, textiles, and so on. In fact, about 85 percent of the building materials needed to build and furnish a house can be produced from this most useful plant.

    Used as a medicine it's been proven to help the brain completely regenerate brain cells damaged by such diseases as Alzheimer's, etc. It's also proven to kill at least seven types of cancer cells. There are several other medical uses that could be a great benefit to human kind, as well.

    So why are we not using this extremely beneficial plant to its fullest extent?

    Well it seems somewhere down the line someone declared cannabis, hemp, better known by its nickname, marijuana, was indeed the devil's weed because it can also provide pleasure to those who smoke it.

    So rather than ending the absurd cannabis prohibition once and for all, we instead choose to be saddled down with unnecessarily high fuel and food prices, as well as super high medical costs. After all, we need to protect ourselves from this devil weed no matter the cost. In reality, it's been proven again and again that cannabis is totally harmless to society and users alike.

    Although we've invented all sorts of gadgets from that Little Ice Age till the present, as a species we've regressed rather than progressed. This is due to the indisputable fact that most people refuse to learn from the mistakes of the past.

    Self induced ignorance is voluntary slavery.

    perhaps this new president has balls enough to speak up for change

    i really liked the clip on the news when he commented on wasah.dc's snow day

    my seven year old says back in chicago we'd still have outside recess in this


    just maybe he'll speak up and tell them the emperors naked and not wearing any clothes....
