Senator Dianne Feinstein believes hemp should remain illegal to grow in the USA due to the possibility of people making hash oil… It seems impossible to me… Most hash oil recipes use THC rich marijuana, NOT industrial Hemp. What is the truth? email me at gregvan [at] yahoo [dot] com
Who could possibly be in favor of keeping Cannabis Illegal? Corporations that are in the business of incarceration. Follow the money: Law Enforcement makes money by arresting people, bringing them to trial and then warehousing them in jail. While REAL crime is on the wane, cannabis arrests are easy and low risk. REAL criminals are often dangerous.
Corporations that make products that compete with hemp. Let’s suppose the corporation makes paper, rope, cloth or medicine… Those businesses would lose sales to hemp. Who makes these products? The Koch Brothers. Paper Towels… Oil… Polymers… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koch_Industries
and who makes Nylon Rope? Dupont. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DuPont
and… Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Corporations. Imagine if a patient grew their own medicine? No profit for the pill makers… Some medicines are extremely addictive and dangerous to the health of the patients… All the makers of opium based medicines would face increased competition from the medical marijuana industry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_pharmaceutical_companies
and… Recreational Drug Manufacturers… Beer, Wine and Whiskey… If there was FREEDOM OF CHOICE, many people would leave the booze on the shelf. No Cirrhosis, No Hangovers, No AA meetings…
and… Criminals who currently grow and sell Marijuana. Big Business here in the USA and Mexico. HUGE.
and… The DEA seizes property…
and… The ATF sells guns to Mexican Drug Gangs. Operation Fast and Furious… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATF_gunwalking_scandal
That’s who is in favor of keeping Cannabis Illegal.
