when marijuana (hemp) was first made illegal, it wasn't really because of any medical reasons, values or properties it had or didn't have. the real reason that marijuana (hemp) was made illegal was to keep it from being turned into a primary paper crop, which we all know now is a very possible indeed. but why would that matter in the twenties, thirties and fourties? because Mr. William Randolph Hearst held the rights to pretty much every tree in the United States that grew west of the Mississippi River. If the paper buyers of the world discovered how cheaply a pulp product from hemp could be manufactured, he would stand to lose everything. To avoid this, he put all the resourses he had pouring money into Washington. And what better position could he have been, to appear to the public as this anti drug crusader while at the same time and with the same monies, guaranteeing himself to be the fodder for the newspapers which he owned that now could only find paper in quantities they needed from him, what a perfect triangle he had.

So who is todays version of "William Randolph Hearst"? who or what is it that stands to win or lose so heavily that it would be world changing if marijuana (hemp) were legalized, it's known to have legitimate crop value and that other versions of the herb could be legalized for medical need,(which is beyond debate now it is definitely an extremely valuable, one of a kind treatment useful for many many purposes)
To start industries of both kinds would put possibly tens of thousands of people to work in various areas, because if you don't know the two varieties cannot be grown near each other or the pulp would take over.
So, with all this good stuff happening, i ask you again, who or what is it that is preventing legalization?is it simply the record keeping? hell, hire the crooks that are doing it now, they seem to be doing a pretty good job up till that one point? have the whole hemp part of the system be run under the federal prison system, the hemp has no value as far as getting high but it still needs gardeners.
Isn't there someone in Washington DC who could give us the answers?
So, who do you think it is?
