Truth is proof against all lies! 
                -Industrial hemp was first domesticated 10,000 years ago; was required in 1619 to be grown by all farmers in Jamestown, Virginia; was legal tender in America and accepted as payment for taxes from 1631 to the early 1800's; was a cash crop grown on the plantations of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson; was grown in America and regulated by the Department of Agriculture until 1937; and was the domestic source of maritime rope during the 1942 to 1945 World War II "Hemp for Victory" campaign; and Industrial hemp provided the ropes and sails for Christopher Columbus' ships and the paper on which the Declaration of Independence was first drafted; and Industrial hemp has been used to produce more than 25,000 products...............[read the full article]

                -"Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the fields?"-- Henry Ford

                -BBC News quotes Dr. Aiden Hampson of the US National Institute of Mental Health as saying, "We have found that cannaboids are very powerful anti-oxidants. In fact they appear to be more powerful than vitamin C or vitamin E."

                -When we know the facts we can understand why in 1988, after extensive review of the scientific literature, the DEA's own administrative judge Frances Young concluded that ``Marijuana is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man."

                -Once we only smoked it to get high; now it looks set to be a valued addition to the medicine cabinet. The announcement last week that marijuana might reduce stroke damage and protect against Alzheimer's is just the latest in a string of beneficial effects, recently uncovered by researchers.  And there is undoubtedly more to come. 

                -It was just before midnight on March 13 when Mondovi's finest arrived at the home of Jacki Rickert, a prominent proponent of medical marijuana.

"I've got a job to do," said Mondovi Police Chief Terry Pittman, "Until the law changes, it's still illegal." Somebody please change the law so this guy can do something else.
