The Marijuana Conspiracy: The true reasons why hemp is illegal

I have come across the article summarized below and it is another piece of knowledge I wish to share. Every time when it is appropriate, I include in my university presentations information on hemp and its immense potential. If you still think that it is a useless, intoxicating, evil plant, I suggest to do proper research on the subject first. The article below is simply one of the examples of the information that is both accurate and paradigm-changing for ‘anti-hemp-ers’.

The Marijuana Conspiracy: The reason hemp is illegal

by Doug Yurchey
They say marijuana is dangerous. Pot is not harmful to the human body or mind. Marijuana does not pose a threat to the general public. Marijuana is very much a danger to the oil companies, alcohol, tobacco industries and a large number of chemical corporations. Big businesses, with plenty of dollars and influence, have suppressed the truth from the people. The truth is, if marijuana was utilized for its vast array of commercial products, it would create an industrial atomic bomb! The super rich have conspired to spread misinformation about the plant that, if used properly, would ruin their companies.
Where did the word β€˜marijuana’ come from? In the mid 1930s, the M-word was created to tarnish the good image and phenomenal history of the hemp plant – as you will read. The facts cited here, with references, are generally verifiable in the Encyclopedia Britannica which was printed on hemp paper for 150 years (read full article):

  1. Hi In,
    Neat Post, I saw a news article that stated that the buzz from weed was more helpful for treating ADD in children than Ritalin. If this is true, then there is a big conspiracy. The drug companys would lose lots of money if the government legalized pot. Pot can also cure other ailaments like arthritis, loss of appetite, glycoma (sp?), and anger. Do you think that the reason why pot is illegal in America is due to company interest groups in Washington?
    Cheers

      Run a search for the documentary on why Marijuana is illegal (the name evades me right now, but I think it’s something like “The Business Behind Getting High” or very close to it…) It should be on YouTube and it’s an eye-opener (I was planning to post it onto the blog, just never got around to doing it…) that would answer your question much better than my summary can do justice to the issue πŸ˜‰
