make it legal, it is only a plant, more restrictions means higher cost which attracts gangsters,the prohibition must stop, Industrial Hemp will level the energy playing field aswell , this plant can have a very positive impact when allowed to flourish, It is the highest oil producing seed on the earth, good for people to eat and it is the oil Diesel designed his motors to run on, the seeds are the most nutrition you can find, better than soy ! cotton is costly and toxic to produce, when mixed with cement you have Hempcrete, structurally sound for a thousand years in Athens Greece still in use delivering the citys water supply, Bio-Enginere this plant back into the loop or we as a species are dead, Detroit considered making it LAW to grow a hundred acres per Ford engine produced to offset the damage these motors cause, Henry Ford built car bodies out of a hemp plastic so they would not rust out...... as everyone knows this conspiracy to stamp out the moust usefull plant on earth is insane and these people who have never even smoked a puff, should go get some and try it ! Then laugh all the way to their local polling place and VOTE the Criminals out ! Look at the money they are robbing from the public trying to stop a simple weed. That Is The Real Crime, not to mention all the ruined lives of people in jail..... Writing these words is theraputic and when you understand the coruption involved it will make you sick, the Prison Guard Unions are told to invest in "Prison Industries" it's on the stock exchange, basicly slave labor to compete with overseas wages and Yes mostly marijuana charges are what's filling all the prisons, so do the research and we can all take that long sigh of relief.........finally with the web maybe we can spread truth. Go clean up all the Meth Labs and Heroin, or is that the soloution.....Oops.............time to ramble, on....and on we go....see ya.
