Just Say No to GMO Hemp!

Let’s get this straight. There is cannabis, and there is CANNABIS. One has relatively no THC levels, and the other does. It’s like two dogs – one a Chihuahua, the other a Great Dane. Same species, different breeds. The one with higher levels of THC is normally referred to as marijuana. That is the one that gets you high if heated. The other one, without high THC levels, is hemp. Smoke a pound of it and you’ll only get a headache… maybe. Yet, these are both illegal according to the U.S. government. Why? That’s a very good question.

Federal Hypocrisy in Action

One of the arguments against cannabis legalization in the U.S. is that “getting high” via THC is evidently unacceptable. Go drink a fifth of whiskey or down some barbiturates courtesy of your local licensed Big Pharma drug pusher instead. But don’t do both together, or you might die. In fact, you could die from either one, but that’s evidently irrelevant, as long as it is approved by our corporate government. In other words, don’t use your own drugs, use ours. Yeah, that’s safer. Take for example, Intermezzo, just in case you have that occasional sleepless night.

“…the FDA is fully aware that the drugs it certifies as safe have been killing Americans at the rate of 100,000 per year.” (Jon Rappoport)

Here’s a novel idea – Before selling pain killers or sleeping pills, why not force Big Pharma to take the “high” out of them? Why not hold Big Pharma meds to the same standards? After all, that is the objectionable part to marijuana, isn’t it? Or so we’ve been told.

The only thing that anyone can complain about regarding the weed is that you are liable to get a little goofy if you take it. No side effects. None. Use enough and you go to sleep. Period. No depression, no vomiting or death by asphyxiation.

But that’s different, you say?

Why?

Well, what about the “gateway” theory that smoking marijuana will lead to stronger drugs?

The real gateway is the medicine cabinet in our own homes. Just count the prescriptions in there, then try and tell your child that drugs are bad. Yes, you can get high smoking marijuana, big deal. You can also get high doing any number of dangerous things, smoking marijuana NOT being one of them. Industrial hemp, however, will not get anyone high!

Lies, Lies, and More Lies

Since the U.S. government does not differentiate between high THC content marijuana and its low content relation, industrial hemp, both are banned. Not because the government somehow missed the class on the difference between the two, that’s just plain silly.

So, why the ban?

It only makes sense if you understand that our government doesn’t care one lick about our health, or the health of the planet. The people in our government just want to keep their corporate donors flush in profits, power, and control. So, what to do? Simple. Conduct a war on the one plant that could quite possibly, if it was legal, put those donors out of business. At least for the time being…

So, here’s the spin – Have the government declare that cannabis, all cannabis, has no medicinal value and is illegal to grow, or even possess if it is the wrong breed. In fact, as recently as 2011, “the federal government ruled that it has no accepted medical use and should remain classified as a highly dangerous drug like heroin.

Really???? Well, that says it all, eh? But wait! There is a government study from 1999 that says just the opposite!

And here is a patent for medical marijuana assigned to the US government:

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=6630507.PN.&OS=PN/6630507&RS=PN/6630507

Another patent:

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8337908.PN.&OS=PN/8337908&RS=PN/8337908

Hmmmm…  Methinks the lies are starting to unravel before our very eyes.

Well, make up my mind for me. Which is it? If the government’s own publications contradict themselves, how on earth can anyone condone the war on weed as anything other than a simple control issue? Yes, there are known health benefits, or no, there are none. If there are no health benefits, as declared by the DEA, then why do the government’s own studies say differently? And why does the Federal government actually dispense marijuana cigarettes to these people for health reasons?

We the people are being lied to. If anyone can grow the plant in their backyard, and get the desired medical results without going to Big Pharma for a dose of barbiturates, narcotics, and artificial genetically engineered pain killers, that is simply NOT in our corporate government’s partners’ best interests. Getting the picture?

GMO Cannabis

Let’s connect a few more dots, shall we? How about this little theory:

They want it illegal until it’s genetically engineered and patented, then cross contamination will do the rest. Just think canola and Percy Schmeiser… and Big Pharma, chemical company/seed manufacturer profits. Then think about how hardy and prolific this plant is.

The agenda of the government in its policies against Cannabis have always been to deprive the people access to the plant, while maintaining control over it for the governments own self-interest. This self-interest extends to a multitude of industries including the prison and military industry, the petroleum, timber, cotton, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as the entirety of the banking and corporate establishment which has become empowered through disconnecting people from their one true source of independence and sustenance, the Earth. Cannabis prohibition has served to redirect human evolution from that of a decentralized agrarian lifestyle and natural economy, to a centralized petro-chemical military dictatorship controlled through the artificial economic will of private banks and other trans-national corporate interests.

The next stage in continuing this control, is in the regulation, licensing and taxation of Cannabis cultivation and use through the only practical means available to the corporate system, which is through genetic engineering and patenting of the Cannabis genome.

http://gmocannabiswatch.blogspot.com/2010/11/proposition-19-monsanto-and-gmo.html

First you sequence, then you genetically engineer. The cannabis genome is being sequenced as I type. The genome consists of the entire set of chromosomes and inheritable traits of an organism. In the case of cannabis, this would include all strains, including those considered marijuana as well as industrial hemp.

And yes, GMO marijuana is already here. How it got onto the commercial underground market is anyone’s guess, but field trials by our corporate government and/or its subsidiaries come to mind, or maybe a backyard lab did the deed. And now, industrial hemp is targeted for genetic engineering.

One of the nation’s leading farming organizations passed a bizarre new policy statement in support of industrial hemp farming, but only if it is genetically modified (GMO) and retains cannabis prohibition with very heavy law enforcement.

So, GMO hemp OKAY. Natural hemp NOT okay.

Think this won’t happen? Just follow the money and make the connections:

George Soros, who is famous for being one of the most powerful and influential persons in world economics and whose speculations alone are said to have ‘broke the Bank of England‘, is one of the key directors for the organization that is leading the charge to regulate, control and tax Cannabis in California. All the while George Soros is one of the major shareholders in the world’s largest GM Seed bio-technology corporation known as Monsanto.

http://gmocannabiswatch.blogspot.com/2010/11/proposition-19-monsanto-and-gmo.html

Think about the ramifications of this. Here are the uses of cannabis:

Now, imagine all that genetically engineered, patented, and owned by Monsanto et. al. Don’t think that is such a big deal? Just ask the farmers in India what happens when Monsanto’s GMO seeds are the only ones available.

The Bottom Line

We the people who raise animals know what is happening to our animals and our own bodies due to genetically engineered food from first-hand experience. No amount of bought and paid for quack science can tell us any different. And look out when GMO hemp hits the ground running. Talk about a good plant gone bad! A healthy, sustainable movement to revolutionize the system and change the way we fundamentally do things, co-opted by the very same death dealing machine that is killing the planet with toxins, poisons, and mutant DNA.

And the beat goes on. When will we learn that once the government digs its corporate claws into something, only devastation results?

And so, with the race on to legalize cannabis, the rush to genetically engineer it so that it can be tightly controlled by the biotech industry through proprietary sales and patent law is running neck and neck. When the GMO hemp pushers pull ahead, that is most likely when the Feds will legalize it.

Dumb for the environment, health, freedom… all the things we are supposed to cherish. Smart if you are in it for money, power, and control, and consider planetary genocide an acceptable risk. He who dies with the most toys wins, eh? Too bad we the people are smack dab in the path of that destructive ideology.

    The One People’s Public Trust has just cut the head off the snake that is the military industrial complex and freed Humanity. Gradually, We’ll learn to act like free people, understand Our true power and status and take control of Our planet. This is the beginning of our prophesied thousand years of peace, justice and prosperity for Posterity.

    So, let’s all stop focusing on the problems created by ‘the powers that were’ and start focusing on Our solutions.

    • buzz says:

      Agreed Al. I have no doubt we are in the big shift right now. Much work to do, of course. My confusion/concern lies in the fact that these corporations are armed to the teeth via private and public soldiers. Is the solution/change to be seen in the awakening of hearts and minds that hold the weapons?

      I definitely see a better age dawning. I have tried to help awaken people to the truth since viewing Zeitgeist- the movie, in 2008. What an uphill battle. Finally, realizing that I have to be the change I want to see. I am focused on OPPT and many other truth seekers daily. Living cleanly as possible. (non GMO, etc). Realizing my divine right to be free.

      How will these Behemoth government/corporations fall or convert to helping humanity; not destroying.

  3. Mark says:

    The entire cannabis genome was sequenced well before you started typing this… way back in 2011.

    The chart of cannabis uses also neglects to mention animal feed, hemp “tofu”, “cheese”, and other products of hempseed protein and starch.

  4. Big M says:

    Every single person involved in the GMO industry (and of course, that means EVERYBODY who works for Monsanto) should be brutally tortured for years, which would include eating nothing but their own poison 24/7, then publicly drawn and quartered, then thrown face-up into a hog pen. Inhuman sociopaths such as these need to be made an example of for the rest of time.

    And for anybody who wants to say that I’m over the top, these people are trying to kill you off. Why would you hesitate to give them what they’re giving you?

    This gov’t is no longer interested in the little people. We are all going to die once the methane in the artic let’s go.
