It’s Illegal But The Government Has A Patent On It

Just a few articles related to the subject of the medicinal and industrial value of Hemp … which the government has classified as “illegal” for the benefit of Big Pharma and other industries which you will see at the links provided.  Spread this message. There is no reason for the government to keep this wonderful natural substance from a “free” people. I am a staunch advocate of “local” activism and suggest that State activism will lead to liberating Hemp from the claws of the federal machine such as has been done in California, Colorado, Wyoming, Oregon, etc. Not only will those suffering from disease gain a cure for their ailments but the States will also see great benefit in new industries which will supply much needed jobs as well as tax revenue.

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.   http://www.lewrockwell.com/spl2/reason-hemp-is-illegal.html

The ominous part is that this isn’t the first time scientists have discovered that THC shrinks tumors. In 1974 researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, who had been funded by the National Institute of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system, found instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice — lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia.

The DEA quickly shut down the Virginia study and all further cannabis/tumor research, according to Jack Herer, who reports on the events in his book, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.” In 1976 President Gerald Ford put an end to all public cannabis research and granted exclusive research rights to major pharmaceutical companies, who set out — unsuccessfully — to develop synthetic forms of THC that would deliver all the medical benefits without the “high.”  http://patients4medicalmarijuana.wordpress.com/2010/01/04/marijuana-cures-cancer-us-government-has-known-since-1974/

On the one hand, United States federal government officials have consistently denied that marijuana has any medical benefits. On the other, the government actually holds patents for the medical use of the plant.

Just check out US Patent 6630507 titled “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants” which is assigned to The United States of America, as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services.
The patent claims that –

“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.”

The patent was obtained in October of 2003.  http://patients4medicalmarijuana.wordpress.com/medical-use-of-cannabis-video/the-government-holds-a-patent-for-medical-marijuana/

See the patent HERE.

In the federal system, marijuana is classified as a controlled substance, categorized as having a high potential for abuse and no currently accepted medical use, together with drugs like heroin, LSD and ecstasy.

The court noted that the DEA denied the petition after the Department of Health and Human Services gave the DEA its evaluation that marijuana lacks a currently accepted medical use in the United States.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/22/marijuana-class-i_n_2528323.html

The first thing to realize is cannabinoids are the real deal. it is not a scam designed by a bunch of pot heads, though the federal government and Big Pharma hope you continue to think so.. The federal government has known cannabinoids cured cancer since 1974 when it funded program at university of Virginia to prove pot had a negative effect on the immune system.Their final report showed pot had no negative effect on immune system and killed cancer cells in a petri dish and in mice. our wonderful federal government immediately defunded the program…and now now hold a patent on cannabinoids.  http://www.myelomabeacon.com/forum/medical-cannabis-treatments-t171-20.html

We Are At The Threshold

We are at the threshold of a fundamental evolutionary change for mankind. As the articles, movies and pictures posted here have demonstrated, we have been moving towards a one world governing body referred to as The New World Order. There is a solution to the many problems our world faces. Please take the time to view this movie which addresses each of these problems individually, laying out the entire insidious plan for world domination and then reveals the solutions we can implement to change that direction and put an end to the machinations that would steal our Liberty and even our very lives.

Seriously?

I’ve been watching all the talking heads rambling on about how the “Tea Party” is still waiting for a viable candidate to appear on the scene.

WHAT?!!?

Let me see if I can figure this out.  The “Tea Party” began its grass roots movement under Ron Paul’s run for President… right?  Ron Paul was their choice… right?  Ron Paul is currently running for President… right?

So what are these talking heads talking about?!?!??

The Limits of Protest

This is an excellent article and I would like to quote parts for emphasis:

Why Politicians Ignore the Protests

Politicians, especially those in high offices like the U.S. House of Representatives and above, have the ability to know who votes, who does not vote, who always votes Democrat, who always votes Republican, who always votes Third Party/write-in, and who is in the tiny minority “in play”–those whose swing vote might actually decide an election. It’s not an exact science, but the politicians can buy pretty good lists, they can develop the lists and make them better, and they can turn to other market research for even more information. Politicians respond only to the demands of key swing voters, and know that swing voters don’t go to mass demonstrations.

The anti-war demonstrations failed and continue to fail because every politician knows that among the anti-war demonstrators there are no votes in play. The marches are full of non-voters, third-party voters, and reliable Democrats. Nobody in any of those masses was going to vote Republican if their Democrat leaders didn’t do more to stop the war, and vice-versa for the anti-war conservatives: no libertarian was going to vote for Obama to stop McCain. Knowing that nobody would be sent home for voting for the latest $106 billion war supplemental, every Democrat did.

The politicians knew that none of the demonstrators’ votes were in play. Entirely for that reason, the politicians knew that they could ignore the demonstrators with impunity. And so they did.

The reaction to the new wave of demonstrations from the new minority will mirror what we saw four years ago. Knowing that nobody in these anti-tax, anti-Obama, anti-socialism demonstrations is going to vote Democrat to punish a Republican member of Congress for, say, voting for a new farm regulation, no politician will see the demonstrations as a political threat and feel compelled to react.

The Value of Demonstrations

When demonstrations appear successful by turnout but to no effect, demonstrators become alienated from the political process, and abandon standard grassroots politics for radical methods. Notice how Richard dismisses lobbying Congress out of hand, as if it’s no different from staging demonstrations? That error is the product of cynicism bred from failed effort.

This is not to say that demonstrations by themselves are always without value. At the state and local level, they can be great places to meet and interact with other activists. This is difficult to do with DC rallies, where even finding people in your state amongst the crowd can be difficult.

The political outcome will be the same whether or not you attend. The media coverage and punditry will be what they will be. Republican politicians will sympathize with the noble demonstrators; Democrats will label it a “right-wing” attack to firm up their opposition. The Washington March is a scripted event. The outcome is practically pre-determined; your presence is just one more tick on a tally. It may be a herd of cats, but it’s still a herd.

Is it all worth it? Maybe if you live nearby, but if you’re planning a trip, think how much energy is required. Say one coach bus, 55 people, spend two full days on a demonstration. 55 people with two full days could un-seat a mayor in a city of 100,000 if they spent that time canvassing their wards. In the sort of long, determined day you experience trekking to a demonstration, you work enough that for the effort you could have canvassed your entire precinct.

The Fruits of Local Effort

And for your work, you would have developed your voter list and your contact list for next time. More than a passing sense of achievement, but an asset you can put to use again and again. Instead of being a part of a herd, seen by all spectators as just another extra in the movie that is our political system, you would have made substantial progress in becoming a grassroots leader. You would have met people, in your very precinct, who feel the way you do. You would make friends, and you would be able to rally them to do join you in pressuring your politicians.

It’s engaging the middle margins that politicians fear. We deserve better than the political fate of the anti-war demonstrators, worked up into a mob and dispersed for later partisan assimilation. We can avoid this fate by rooting ourselves in our precincts and becoming grassroots leaders.

Unless you live in Maryland or Virginia, it may make more sense to dedicate yourselves to more local activism. If you can become a grassroots leader, and we as leaders work in a coordinated fashion, we will be able to manipulate our representatives in government. It does not matter if our representatives are not sincerely committed to Liberty–we can force them to vote for Liberty by making it the path of least resistance. That requires mobilization of voters, and the only way this essential task will be completed is if we start now.

The Revolution begins at home, and arrives in DC, not the other way around. You don’t need to travel to DC to make your voice heard. If you want to really upset the political establishment, become a grassroots leader.
