Hemp

Why INDUSTRUAL hemp could save the world
no you would not want to smoke it!!!

SCIENTISTS HAVE PREDICTED A MAJOR GLOBAL ALLIGNMENT ON OUR ABOUT 12-21-2012

         A WORLD REBUILDING MAY BE NECESSARY

IF SO, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING…..

   That title probably should say, "Why hemp could have saved the world all

along,” because the plant should never have been banned
in the first place, and its prohibition has led to untold suffering
around the globe. If we—the global human population—had been able
to grow the miracle plant hemp (Cannabis genus) locally and to
use it for local industries and businesses, including
and especially for fuel, we would never have needed to be
addicted to oil, for one, an addiction that is at the root of much
misery. We would never have allowed ourselves to be lorded over by
international oil-mongers whose crimes against humanity have become
legion, including wholesale invasion of other lands and slaughter of
countless people.

None of this oil-related horror—along with the deplorable degradation of the environment
globally—would have occurred if hemp had not been prohibited but
had been used wisely and intelligently as a major foundation of human
society. Indeed, hemp-based economies could still save the human
world, while hemp planting could go a massively long way in rescuing
the natural world as well.

Thousands of uses for amazing hemp

It is said that hemp has up to 50,000 uses, from fiber to fuel to food, but I’ll just provide
a taste here:

In modern times, hemp has been used for industrial purposes including paper, textiles,
biodegradable plastics, construction, health food, fuel, and medical
purposes with modest commercial success. In the past three years,
commercial success of hemp food products has grown considerably.

Hemp is one of the faster growing biomasses known, producing up to 25 tonnes of dry matter per
hectare per year, and one of the earliest domesticated plants known.
For a crop, hemp is very environmentally friendly, as it requires few
pesticides and no herbicides. SAVE A TREE!!!

A partial list of hemp
uses includes (there are many within each category):

food—seeds, fuel-oil,
flour
medicine—salves, anti-nausea
toiletries—soap,
shampoo, lotion
textiles—clothing, towels, bedding,
canvas
household products—carpet, detergent, paint,
toys
industrial products—paper, concrete, insulation, fuel, car parts

(It should be noted that medical marijuana is a different strain of cannabis that contains
significant amounts of the active chemical THC, whereas industrial
hemp contains negligible amounts and is not capable of getting anyone
“high.”)

One highly important use of hemp has been in detoxifying nuclear waste, as demonstrated by
experiments in the Ukraine, for example, on the site of the
Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Moreover, hemp
fuel could actually replace the dangerous and costly nuclear power
industry.

Much of this information about the history and uses of hemp comes from the writings of, among
many others, the late great Jack Herer, whose book The Emperor
Wears No Clothes has become a classic, with hundreds of
thousands of copies bought or given away over the past 25 years.

Why hemp was banned

When studied, the history of hemp prohibition can only be deemed a disgrace, exposing, as it
appears to turn out, some of the greatest villains ever to set foot
upon the earth. Despite the anti-hemp propaganda of these
individuals, the fact is that this versatile plant has been used in
numerous cultures around the world since the dawn of civilization:

Hemp (cannabis) was also used for making cloth in temperate Europe… Since it was resistant to
seawater, it was particularly useful for making sails. Hemp seeds
occur in a few European sites from LBK [c. 5500 BCE] onward, and
possible hemp cloth was found in a Late Neolithic French site; hemp
textiles were certainly in production by the Iron Age in Thrace and
Greece…. (Jane McIntosh, Handbook of Life in Prehistoric
Europe, Oxford University Press, 2009, p. 107)

It is also claimed that “Ötzi the Iceman,” a 5,300-year-old mummy found frozen in the Swiss
Alps, was discovered to be wearing clothing made of hemp, as
well as carrying marijuana in his pouch.

“Make the most of the Indian hemp seed, and sow it everywhere!” — US President
George Washington

As an example of how vital hemp used to be to humanity, it is said that the United States may
never have succeeded if a number of its founders had not been hemp
farmers—an industry that made them rich. Indeed, first American
President George Washington himself is quoted as saying, “Make
the most of the Indian hemp seed, and sow it everywhere!”

In fact, hemp farming was required by law or otherwise encouraged in several early American
villages and towns:

In 1619, because hemp was such an important resource, it was illegal not to grow hemp in
Jamestown, Virginia. Massachusetts and Connecticut had similar laws.
During the 1700’s, subsidies and bounties were granted in Virginia,
Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, North & South Carolina, and
the New England states to encourage hemp cultivation and the
manufacturing of cordage and canvas. (John Dvorak, “America’s
Harried Hemp History”)

One of the most important facts concerning American use of hemp is that the US Declaration of
Independence itself was drafted on hemp paper.

According to hemp activists, industrial “robber barons” and “medico-fascists”
colluded in an unholy war against the common people to create
monopolies.

Oil-mongers jumped on the bandwagon, so they could force us all not to have local fuels but to
buy from them—getting us addicted to the product of foreign sources
that have since become huge national security problems with the
trillion$ in oil money they have sucked out of our economies.

In 1930 Henry Ford began promoted the vision of farm products replacing imported oil for fuel,

lubricants, and synthetic fibers”. He introduced an automobile that ran on fuels derived from hemp

and other agricultural-based sources. Even the fenders were made of hemp, wheat, straw, and synthetic fibers.

Ford said: his vision was “to grow automobiles from the soil”. In 1941 he built his hemp car.
