HEMP for Victory (1943)! Weekend Watching

This fascinating documentary is about 10 minutes of not so ancient history. Many questions in how this crop became obsolete and even illegal today. Would love to see this thread include some real historical facts useful in future 'nullification' action, particularly for southern states devastated by government regulation of the tobacco industry.

Historical Facts

re: "Would love to see this thread include some real historical facts..." Here is a link to a chronology of hemp through history: http://www.gozarks.com/hemp/

When you open the page, scroll down about a screen and a half. The Chronology begins at 8000bc and carries through to current times.

Also, we are having a Medicinal Cannabis Educational Roundhouse at the State Capitol Rotunda in Little Rock, Arkansas, 9am/2pm, January 12 & 13, 2011... perhaps you will come by and see us...!!! For more info, go to http://www.gozarks.com/a4mc

Thanks, and keep up the great work!!!

classic

"Hemp is of the first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country." - Thomas Jefferson

“Speaking generally, the Commission are of the opinion that the moderate use of hemp drugs appears to cause no appreciable physical injury of any kind.” - Indian Hemp Drugs Commission 1893-1894

"Make the most of the Indian Hemp Seed and sow it everywhere." George Washington

"Sowed Hemp at Muddy hole by Swamp."

"began to separate the male from the female plants" - George Washington
Diary Entry, August 7, 1765

“Certainly no good reason can be assigned why the
Hemp of New Zealand should not thrive with us, as
that country lyes [sic] in about the same Southern lati-tude
that our middle States do in the Northern. The
Hemp of the East Indies grows well here (from my own
experience) and I have no doubt of the Tea plant suc-ceeding
in So. Carolina and Georgia.”

Great post. Makes me want to

Great post. Makes me want to convert my backyard into a hemp & marijuana field. I'd love to produce me some strong rope & good smoke :)

.

Great vid! A great motivator to be a part of the revived hemp industry.

Excellent. Tuscarora Indians

Excellent. Tuscarora Indians in North Carolina were know as Hemp Gatherers. The outlawing of hemp is a prime example of a government out of touch with reality. Hemp is one of the most useful products farmers can grow.

No I think they're in touch with reality

and the reality is that they get paid big bucks to maintain the status quo and keep your kids safe from the gateway drug marijuana. Ironically these same people support putting the second most toxic substance after
spent nuclear rods, into the water you and your kids drink that would be fluorosilicic acid. It all seems a little hypocritical to me. Watch: Rick Simpson "Run From the Cure" on youtube or google it'll open your eyes to THE REAL REASON marijuana is illegal.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Audio is Off

That was the end of it, it's just that the audio was out of sync, and the last part was cut off. The pictures were ahead of the narration.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

worth a bump
