Why Is Marijuana Illegal?

(Source: www.hemp.org) An acre of hemp makes 300 gallons of oil and 6,000 pounds of high protein hempseed meal, and 30 tons of fiber for paper, building materials, canvas, rope, lace and linen. The reason marijuana was prohibited in the 20th century was to suppress hemp fuel and fiber production, which is inexpensive to make and naturally decentralized, so that small groups of people could profit from the capital intenhempsive petrochemical alternatives that dominate our political process and economy today. Hemp will decentralize our econHemp Productsomic system and return wealth and control to the majority. Hemp & marijuana both come from the same plant, cannabis sativa, which is the Latin, botanical name. Hemp is the fiber from the stalks and stems and the sterile seeds, while marijuana is the leaves, flowers and viable seeds. Some people believe that hemp with a low THC content is one species, and that it becomes a different plant, marijuana, when the THC level in the cannabis plant goes above 0.3 percent, but it is really the same plant. It is really about fuel, fiber and the synthetic subversion of the natural cycle. Drugs are only a smokescreen. Marijuana prohibition has always been about money, power, and control. – www.hemp.org Hemp Production
