Jack Herer (left) with Dennis Peron, at the Cannabis Buyers Club, in San Francisco in 1996.
Jack Herer was the man, the Godfather of the modern marijuana legalization movement. His book “The Emperor Wears No Clothes” published in 1985, brought to light the history of Cannabis Hemp and the reasons why it was hastily made illegal by the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937.
The powers that be had buried the truth about it’s use and benefits as FOOD, FUEL, FIBER, and MEDICINE. The media reframed it as “marijuana” a Mexican slang word unfamiliar to the general public. Sensationalist stories about Blacks and Latinos, Jazz musicians smoking weed and committing violent crimes and worse of all lusting after White Women were published in newspapers across the nation.
When the legislation came before Congress, the AMA, the American Medical Association sent a representative that testified that Cannabis was one of the most important medicines they could prescribe, especially for “children and the elderly” because it was safe and non addictive. But it’s use as a medicine was not the main reason behind the push to make it illegal. Henry Ford had designed a car that ran on hemp fuel and was about to mass market it. That was a threat to the Petrochemical industries They controlled the media, which back then was mostly print media. They owned the newspapers. They were also heavily invested in other industries like pharmaceuticals, logging, and textiles that hemp was a competition to.
The true story of hemp especially in making America the great nation it had become had been whitewashed from the history books. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew Cannabis Hemp on their plantations. The Declaration of Independence was first drafted on hemp paper. Betsy Ross sewed American flags made of hemp. You could pay your taxes in hemp. The Emporer of as I like to call it the “Hemporer” exposed the cover up and pointed a finger at the ones that benefited from suppressing this beneficial natural resource way before anyone gave much thought to the 1% that secretly pulled the strings behind the curtain.
Vegan is defined as someone who doesn’t consume any animal products, that includes meat, eggs, & dairy. That’s right no cheese. What’s harmful about cheese you ask?
Well for one cheese is a by product of milk which comes from a cow. The dairy cows you get your cheese from are factory farmed. Dairy cows spend their entire lives in confinement as opposed to the open pastures that are their natural habitat. They are expected to produce up to ten times the amount of milk they’d normally, which exhausts their bodies and creates biological oddities like lactating far beyond their capacity, so much so they can’t walk properly.
In fact they get almost no exercise at all. They are constantly, artificially impregnated ( you don’t want to know how ) so they continually produce milk. Their calves are taken away on the day of the birth, never to be in contact with the mother again and are slaughtered and sold as veal. So cheese is very harmful to the cows that are expected to produce it their for the span of their entire lives.
So is eating cheese harmful? Cheese contains high fat, high salt content and high calories. Cheese, especially processed American cheese, has an unhealthy amount of saturated fats. These fats contribute to diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Concerns have also been raised about the presence of estrogen and other steroid hormones in dairy products which could increase the risk of cancer. Cheese of course comes from milk which the milk industry has convinced the unwitting public is a good source of calcium, but calcium can also be found in seeds, nuts like almonds, and leafy greens.
Less known to most people is cheese is addictive. It contains something called casomorphins, which attach to the same brain receptors as heroin and other opiates. As a result, each bite of cheese produces a tiny hit of dopamine. That’s the reason behind our cravings.
But the most harmful effect of cheese is it’s effect on the environment. Just like meat, producing cheese takes large amounts of fuel, fertilizers, pesticides, and water. Our consumption of animal products is unsustainable and if continued will wreak havoc on our environment beyond repair. So eating meat and dairy can not only put your health at risk and endangers animal welfare but in the long this destructive practice if continued at the current levels of consumption, will be the nail in the coffin that will make the planet uninhabitable for future generations.
The choice is up to you. Be part of the problem or part of the solution. The meat and dairy industry is too firmly entrenched for you to get accurate information from mainstream media. Think for yourself. Do the research. I encourage you to eliminate and/or reduce animal products in your diet for your own health and for the health of the planet.
yep you read that right, green is the states where MARIJUANA is LEGAL!!! I know to some of you that don’t seem like a big deal but let me tell you the long, hard climb it took to get us to here.
I grew up outside of D.C. and went to the annual Fourth of July Smoke In every year that was started by the Yippies. I marched down Pennsylvania Avenue during the Carter Administration smoking a joint. I went to jail for pot before you were even born…well some of you anyway. What I mean is the baton was handed to me by the older original hippie generation that started it all off. Sure the pendulum swung back and things looked grim, near impossible for a while there, but we persisted.
Many of our brothers and sisters went to jail (and many are still there) for a plant that we knew was beneficial. We combated the lies and the phony propaganda the powers that be used to suppress this natural resource. FOOD, FUEL, FIBER, and MEDICINE we shouted to deaf ears. Some still fail to see the bigger picture and I don’t want to spoil the party but we as a species need to wake up and address the pressing issues at hand…yep I’m out of weed, lol.

I’m sure most of you are asking yourself, who in the world is Fan Bingbing? While you may have never heard of her, she’s arguably the biggest star on the planet right now, one of the highest paid in the world. The beautiful Chinese actress is like the female Johnny Depp, universally loved by all. In China alone she has millions of fans, maybe even a billion. (the current population of China is 1,417,748,470 as of Monday, January 14, 2019, based on the latest United Nations estimates.)
Fans’s been the highest paid celebrity in China for the last 4 years. ($43 million last year alone.) Therein lies the reason for her disappearance. Chinese authorities had ruled that no actor or actress may make more than 70% of the total salary of the entire cast or 40% of production costs. Insiders say this led to top film stars not truthfully disclosing the actual amount they we’re getting paid.
Fan had not been seen in public since June of last year. A spokesperson for Fan denied she committed tax evasion but a state news outlet declared last Sept. that she was “about to receive legal judgement.” Speculation ran wild that she had been taken into custody, had been sent to a government “re-education” camp, that she had died. The scandal ground the Chinese Film Industry to a halt. Now it’s come to light she was brought to trial. The Chinese judicial system is notorious for it’s lack of transparency but this was a case that was known on a global scale. (unlike the millions being held in secret camps according to the U.N.’s human right’s watch.) Fan’s fans we’re distraught, while the death penalty for tax fraud was removed in 2011, life imprisonment was still possible. It’s been reported that after her “confession”, she was given a stupendous fine of 884 million yuan (in US dollars $127.8 million). 5 days ago, Fan surfaced as a model in a Psrs a sun glass company’s catalog.
January 2019 – ok so here’s the state of the union in a nutshell, it’s FUCKED UP! Trump has got the government on a partial shutdown that he says won’t end til he gets the billions he needs to build a wall on the Mexican border from the Dems. The wall he said the Mexican government was going to pay for. I mean even if they do build a wall, he does know they’re really good at tunneling, right?
So the government has been on shutdown for almost a month, putting paycheck freezes on federal workers, all national parks and monuments are closed, many agencies are effected including the F.B.I. hampering on-going investigations. What I want to know is how is it effecting the Deep States covert operations like illicit drug dealing and supplying weapons to terrorist groups, that further the ‘New World Order’ goals of the internationalist globalist elite? Probably not at all, and how is Trump going to pay for all the mass arrests and military tribunals to indict these Deep State criminals now?
