This has likely already been mentioned, but number 1 should be making cannabis illegal, the only reason it was made illegal in the first place was
because rumors were spread that Mexicans would smoke it, go crazy, and rape and kill everyone, it's why it's called Marijuana. Even though I
absolutely do not support coc aine, it was also made illegal for the same reason, but with blacks instead of Mexicans. The big reason it's
illegal is because it allows us to be self-sufficient and it makes us rebel against unjust authority.
“Thomas Jefferson wrote and acted on behalf of hemp many times, smuggling rare seeds into America, redesigning the hemp brake, and keeping his farm
and garden journals in which, on March 16, 1791, he wrote: The culture [of tobacco] is pernicious. This plant greatly exhausts the soil. Of course, it
requires much manure, therefore other productions are deprived of manure, yielding no nourishment for cattle, there is no return for the manure
expended... It is impolitic. The fact well established in the system of agriculture is that the best hemp and the best tobacco grow on the same kind
of soil. The former article is of first necessity to the commerce and marine, in other words to the wealth and protection of the country. The latter,
never useful and sometimes pernicious, derives its estimation from caprice, and its value from the taxes to which it was formerly exposed. The
preference to be given will result from a comparison of them: Hemp employs in its rudest state more labor than tobacco, but being a material for
manufactures of various sorts, becomes afterwards the means of support to numbers of people, hence it is to be preferred in a populous country.
America imports hemp and will continue to do so, and also sundry articles made of hemp, such as cordage, sail cloth, drilling linen and
The cannabis plant is the single greatest living thing on this planet, and that's including humans. Hemp is the best and generally strongest material
for everything, including paper, clothing, and rope. It can be used for fuel and can even be turned into plastic. You can live off of nothing but Hemp
oil because it's very well rounded nutritionally, in the exact proportions our bodies need (and it's packed with good fats, fats are the most
important thing to people's survival in poor countries too). Someone in a college class of mine had a cousin who was allergic to basically
everything, if it weren't for Hemp she'd be dead. It has been smoked for religious reasons since it was first found (Sufis seriously supported it),
there is now even a church dedicated to it, known as the First Universal Church of Kantheism, here is a quote from its founder, “I truly believe
cannabis/hemp keeps me having a healthy mind in a healthy body. It has not only helped me to get better in touch with my inner self but has made me a
more balanced person in the whole. In my opinion, the only crime involved with cannabis is the crime against humanity of it being illegal.” Cannabis
is used by shamans, world class athletes, American presidents, famous entertainment stars, artists and authors, not just California liberals. There's
also a good bit of evidence that this wonderful plant evolved with us while we evolved with it.
It is extremely effective against certain pains, nausea, anxiety, sleep problems, fights cancer, helps fend off Alzheimers and isn't physically
addictive, though anything can be mentally addicting. In the video a guy has a message for people against medicinal use, “They're liars...flat out
liars.” The medical establishment is extremely corrupt, they are nothing but pill pushers and exploiters, they want you sick and they want you to
stay sick, they also want you addicted to their opiates. I should also point out that many of the American elite got rich because they smuggled opium
from China to America. The Taliban's control caused Afghanistan's opium output to be very low, but since our invasion they are setting record highs
thanks to our soldiers guarding their fields. And oh yeah, most of the intelligence agencies, especially the CIA, routinely smuggle drugs for Black
Budget money, they're also very interconnected with the mafia. That is the real reason that we do nothing to cure people's problems, instead we
cover up the symptoms by getting them addicted to opiates, which guarantees a steady revenue for the elite. This is also the reason for the War on
Drugs because the elite were tired of having their profits being cut. As the saying on Ron Paul's desk goes, “Don't steal, the government hates
competition.” These are the same medical geniuses who promoted blood letting for a long time and oh yeah, the same people who prescribe poison to
get rid of cancer.
This is the greatest medicine in the world and it's the greatest material in the world: that is exactly why it's illegal. People are constantly
prescribed highly addictive pain killers, they usually stay addicted afterwords too, these people usually have to also take nausea and sleep medicine
to combat the side effects. I had a college teacher in this predicament, he was addicted to Oxycontin, I asked him what he felt about legalizing it in
front of the class, his immediate response was, “Do it, now.” If you have pain throughout your body and they don't know exactly what it is, they
call it fibromyalgia, you know what they prescribe: anxiety medicine. My mom suffers from this, she has general pain throughout her body and this
gives her sleeping problems, yet she has to use completely ineffective medicine, while I have to try not to say anything about a better treatment.
People with anxiety problems are forced to take brain chemistry altering drugs that often make their problems worse while also turning them into a
zombie. When I was in high school I went through the typical period of depression, had the usual suicidal thoughts and all that, you know what fixed
that just in time: cannabis, it literally saved my life.
Another reason it is illegal is because it makes people hard to control, “The sadistic Ottoman Empire conquered Egypt and, in the 16th Century A.D.,
tried to outlaw cannabis - because Egyptian hemp growers along the Nile were leading tax revolts. The Turks complained that cannabis use caused
Egyptians to laugh and be disrespectful to their Sultan and his representatives.” This is also shown in Pineapple Express with Item 9, the soldier
smokes, then he starts making jokes (a bit inappropriately), then his superiors start telling him what to do and he refuses to listen, so it's made
illegal. Also note that these growers were able to be self-sufficient and even led tax revolts, that is above all the biggest reason it is illegal.
Many conquerors would make it illegal so that they could persecute people, usually minority religious and cultural sects.
So the greatest substance on Earth is illegal because it is the greatest substance on earth, yet we have the deadly substances tobacco and alcohol
legalized and alcohol prohibition was even overturned, yet cannabis is illegal because...well...because it's...hmmm...well I'll just put what I saw
on a website, “Because billionaires want to remain billionaires.” The number of people who die from simple things like aspirin each year is
staggering, you know how many people have directly died from smoking cannabis: zero.
