denying ignorance is their business model, their product,
not their value
Smoking marijuana will make the user high, and smoking hemp will not. Hemp contains less than 1 percent of the active ingredient THC, the substance that gives pot smokers a high. Marijuana plants, on the other hand, can contain 10 to 20 percent THC.
The hemp debate and the marijuana debate are often confused with each other. Proponents of legalizing hemp cultivation focus on the plant's many uses and the fact that it requires no pesticides in order to flourish. However, opponents express concern that permitting hemp cultivation would result in the legalization of marijuana cultivation because both hemp and marijuana come from the same plant. Opponents also say that other raw materials are more economical than industrial hemp, which has been disproved on more than one occasion. Cultivating hemp is currently illegal in the United States, although hemp items are imported, including hemp foods.

a psy-op is about implanting ideas in your mind
learn to read before trying to write friend
Our first, and still important, reason for refusing drug-related topics has been concern over the automatic categorization of the ATS domain by Internet filtering software.
Those who enjoy casting aspersions will assume the policies were to line our pockets as traffic and ad revenue grew. However, a minor amount of research will show that the policy was put in place long before any advertising appeared on the forums.
Over the past several months, we've noticed a disconcerting rise in the number of drug-related threads that are nothing more than thinly-vieled attempts to inject druggie culture into ATS discussion. Additionally, on more than one occasion, our staff has spotted online discussions by disruptive detractors, organizing to do just that -- screw with ATS by spamming drug topics.
So do many other plants. But you chose Hemp.
however the only serious matter around here is that hemp can decontaminate land from radiation.
You never proposed how your idea is even remotely realistic. You suggested for people to go buy hemp seeds while failing to mention that Phytoremediation is done site-specific, in localized areas of pollution.
the business model of ats or the healh of our grandchildren ? this question is intended to ats staff;
to get back to the psyop thing there is something i notice as a constant about ats : it is very hard to address to them, to get answers, or any kind of transparency... as a matter of fact i'm seeing ony members trying to elaborate justifications

A mere reminder ...
Please focus further replies and responses on the Actual topic of discussion here:
Site policies and staff actions are in no way germane to the topic of hemp or it's many resources and useful properties.
it is a great lack of respect for the users concerned. and somehow me feeling little like i am addressing an army a very hierarchical organization, a rigid order where people do what they are told to do, no more no less and in full opacity. this is a weird strategy for a business.
or at best a business

hence denying ignorance being a business model, a product & not a value.
= ats is corrupted by the system of the fed it pretends it is fighting by using the "denying ignorance" motto (since most of the ignorance in this world is produced by the lies of the system)
does integrity allows exceptions ?
