Racist conspiracy can't stop powerful medicine

According to a report by Jon Gettman, marijuana has become the largest cash crop in the United States. He estimates the size of the annual harvest of pot at $35 billion. By comparison, the next biggest crop is corn, at $23 billion, followed by soybeans at $17 billion.

The report says that marijuana is the leading cash crop in 12 states, and one of the top 5 in 39 states. In spite of the concerted effort by governments and greedy businessmen, the demonization of marijuana has proven to be totally ineffective.

Where do greedy businessmen come into the picture? It seems that a conspiracy of sorts took place in the 1930’s between Lammont DuPont, William Randolph Hearst, and the first head of the U.S. Treasury Department, Harry Anslinger.

DuPont, head of the chemical giant, was about to introduce plastics on a massive scale, and he wanted to knock out one of his major competitors, the burgeoning hemp industry in the U.S. Not only were all the rope and sails used in the maritime industries made out of hemp, but hemp seriously challenged cotton as a source of fiber for clothing.

As if that wasn’t enough, the auto industry was pressing hemp into molds to make parts for car manufacturing. How could safe, natural hemp be challenged by toxic, bad smelling plastic?

By demonizing hemp’s sister plant—marijuana—DuPont figured that he could get his connections in the government to outlaw “the evil weed.” Hearst entered the picture, because not only did he run the biggest newspaper empire of the day (the film “Citizen Kane” was based on his life), but he was also blatantly racist and disliked Mexicans intensely.

So they decided to whip up a nation-wide “reefer madness” frenzy. Here is how DuPont’s lawyer nephew, Harry Anslinger, summarized the situation in front of Congress:

“There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the U.S. and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers.”

“Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.”

A Texas State Senator was quoted as saying—“All Mexicans are crazy, and this stuff [marijuana] is what makes them crazy.”

The culmination of this reefer madness conspiracy was the passing of the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. This in fact prohibited the growing, sale, or usage of this healing herb that has been used to treat ill people for centuries.

It also allowed DuPont and the other chemical companies to make themselves super rich by starting to make every item they could think of out of plastic.

Grow your own medicine! That’s the best way to fight the forces of repression that will deny you the option of choosing therapeutic cannabis to treat your chronic illness.

Visit the Advanced Nutrients Medical website and educate yourself. Use one of their organic or synthetic fertilizers to feed your marijuana plants regularly. Use their supplements, root colonizers, and bloom enhancers to produce the largest, most potent buds possible.

Some of the products that I’ve personally used and highly recommend are Iguana Juice, Grow and Bloom, Sensi Grow A&B, Sensi Bloom A&B, Barricade, Scorpion Juice, Piranha, Tarantula, Voodoo Juice, Organic B or B-52, Emerald Shaman, SensiZym, and Carbo Load Liquid or Powder.

Whether you grow in soil, or hydroponically as I do, you owe it to yourself to test out these products on your next crop. You have nothing to lose—they all come with a money-back guarantee.

What better way to start off the New Year than to plant some indoor seeds and watch the sources of your magic medicine grow into tall, proud plants.
