Hemp Finally Returns to America!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Infowar Social Networking Coalition,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Hemp Returns to America for the First Time in 60 YEARS”

My Commentary: It’s about time! So long as Americans don’t cave in to more pathetic “drug war” propaganda and lies, the timber, cotton and oil industries can say finally begin to say goodbye to their government-enforced monopolies over the vast majority of the world’s textile, paper and fuel production – which incidentally rely heavily upon a wasteful and obsolete business model of artificial scarcity and price gouging in order to continue reaping the enormous profits they have grown so accustomed to over the centuries, while also keeping them in constant receipt of corporate welfare (AKA “subsidies”), and unreasonably rewarding them for destroying the entire ecosystem! These are some of the same industries that have continuously lobbied for government-sponsored military intervention in those commodity-rich sovereign foreign nations that are unwilling to be subdued and imperialized in the name of “progress” and “industrialization,” both currently, and historically!

Hemp, for the win! It is a superior source for the world’s textiles, paper, and fuel. It contains more cellulose than both timber and cotton, it gestates in a mere six weeks, it does not significantly deplete the soil it grows on (hence requiring almost no crop rotation), it requires little to no fertilizers, it does not need to be sprayed with pesticides (since the negligible amount of THC within it deters insects, naturally), and it also makes for a great bio-fuel, along with a form of eco-friendly plastic, and even a type of “concrete” (hempcrete, which is vastly stronger than what we currently build with, now)! It’s time for some TRUE progress to take place!
