Mexico: Yes weed can.   2 comments

Mexico Decriminalizes Possesion of Drugs.

Mexico’s decriminalization of simple possession of marijuana, heroine, LSD, and cocaine.

Mexico’s Congress decriminalized the possession of very small quantities of those drugs and now treats simple possession as a public health issue rather than a criminal one.  However, sharing, selling, buying, giving away, or in any way exchanging those drugs is still illegal, meaning that there is still no legal way for users to obtain the legally allowable amounts of their drug of choice.

Mexico’s new 5-gram limit on legal marijuana possession is far too small to allow Mexicans to grow marijuana for personal consumption.  Mexico’s new drug policy might alleviate some pressure on Mexico’s judicial and prison systems by keeping minor offenders out of them, but it’s far from a radically new or innovative drug policy.

HERE ARE SOME GREAT FACTS ABOUT CANNABIS / HEMP!

· Farming 6% of the continental U.S. acreage with biomass crops (Hemp) would provide all of America’s Energy needs.
· Biomass can be converted into methane, methanol, or gasoline (which could eliminate our ties with the Middle East) at a cost comparable to petroleum and hemp is much better for the environment.
· Hemp fuel burns clean. Petroleum causes acid rain due to sulfur pollution.
· The use of Hemp Fuel does not contribute to global warming
· Hemp seed can be pressed into nutritious oil, which contains the highest amount of fatty acids in the plant kingdom. Essential oils are responsible for our immune system responses, and can clear the arteries of cholesterol and plaque.
· The byproduct of pressing the oil from hemp seed is a high quality protein seed cake. It can be used to bake into cakes, breads and casseroles. Hemp seed protein is one of mankind’s finest, most complete, and available-to-the body vegetable proteins.
· A Vegan or vegetarian can get all of the days required protein from a handful of hemp seed.
· Hemp is the oldest cultivated fiber plant in the world.
· Low-THC fiber hemp varieties developed by the French and others have been available for over 20 years. It is impossible to get high from fiber hemp. Over 600,000 acres of hemp is grown worldwide with no misuse problem.
· One acre of hemp can produce as much usable fiber as 4 acres of trees or two acres of cotton.
· Trees cut down take 50-500 years to grow, while hemp can be cultivated in as little as 100 days and can yield 4 times more paper over a 20 year period.
· Until 1883, from 75-90\% of all paper in the world was made with cannabis hemp fiber including that for books, Bibles, maps, paper money, stocks and bonds, newspapers, etc.
· Hemp paper is longer lasting than wood pulp, stronger, acid-free, and chlorine free (Chlorine is estimated to cause up to 10\% of all Cancers).
· Hemp paper can be recycled 7 times, wood pulp 4 times.
· Hemp particleboard may be up to 2 times stronger than wood particleboard and holds nails better.
· Hemp is a softer, warmer, and more water absorbent, than cotton and doesn’t stretch out.
· Half of the U.S. pesticides are used to treat cotton, while hemp has a natural pesticide.
· Almost any product that can be made from wood, cotton, or petroleum (including plastics) can be made from hemp. There are 25,000 known uses for hemp.
· For thousands of years virtually all good paints and varnishes were made with hemp seed oil and/or linseed oil.
· One acre of hemp produces as much cellulose fiber pulp as 4.1 acres of trees, making hemp a perfect material to replace trees for pressed board, particle board, and concrete construction molds.
· Heating and compressing plant fibers can create a practical, inexpensive, fire-resistant constructions material with excellent thermal and sound-insulating qualities.
· In 1941 Henry Ford built a plastic car made of fiber from hemp and wheat straw. Hemp is biodegradable, as synthetic plastic is not.
· Presidents Washington and Jefferson both grew hemp. Americans were legally bound to grow hemp during the Colonial Era and Early Republic.

AMERICAN DEATH FACTS(per year)!

· Deaths per year resulting from tobacco: 430,000
· Deaths per year resulting from legal drugs: 106,000
· Deaths per year resulting from alcohol: 100,000
· Deaths per year resulting from aspirin: 180- 1000
· Deaths that have ever occurred in direct result of Cannabis: 0 (that’s right zero)

SUPERFOOD   Leave a comment

HEMP SEED: Nature’s Ancient Superfood!

by Udo Erasmus

Hemp seeds have an established place in history as a nourishing and delicious food. Cultures from around the world have their local recipes. Russians make porridge, sweets and a delicious butter said to be superior to peanut butter. The Chinese enjoy snacks of roasted seeds and in South Africa babies are weaned on a hemp “Pablum”. In fact, the medicinal properties of hemp seeds in ancient Chinese pharmacopoeia are substantial. No other single plant source can compare with the nutritional value. Both the complete protein and the essential oils contained in hemp seed are in ideal ratios for human nutrition.

IDEAL VEGETABLE PROTEIN!

A pound of hemp seed would provide all the protein, essential fatty acids and dietary fiber necessary for human survival for two weeks. The protein in hemp contains all eight amino acids essential to life and is easily digested. For this reason it is used in many parts of the world for treating malnourishment.

DANGERS of “low fat” and “no fat”

Recent trends to produce “low fat” and “no fat” foods present untimely dangers to human biology. In an effort to reduce the intake of saturated fats which typically provide little nutritional benefit and are attributed to excess weight gain, food manufacturers are producing products that contain no source of essential fatty acids. An ideal fat source needs to contain a balance of essential fatty acids (EFAs). They are known as Omega-3 or alpha linoleic acid and Omega-6 or linoleic acid. Hemp foods and hemp oil will be at the head of the “good fat” line, since they contain 80% EFAs. Fats and oils provide a carrier for the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, B and K. They also produce energy. As the trend towards “nutraceuticals” (nutritional foods or substances which prevent disease) continues, the increasingly sophisticated consumer will turn to hemp seed.

HIGH FIBRE – little “colon cleansers”

Although little has been written about the fibre content of hemp seeds in North America they continue to be the most popular remedy for constipation and haemorrhoids in China.

ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS

EFAs absorb sunlight and keep membranes fluid. Their tendency to disperse gives biological systems the power to carry substances such as toxins to the surface of the skin, intestinal tract, kidneys, or lungs, where these substances can be discarded.

EFAs are involved in producing life energy in our body from food substances, and moving that energy throughout our systems. They govern growth, vitality, and mental state. They hook up oxygen, electron transport, and energy in the process of oxidation. Oxidation, the central and most important moment-to-moment living process in our body, is the ‘burning’ of food to produce the energy required for life processes. EFAs are involved in the transporting of oxygen to all our cells. EFAs can be likened to oxygen ‘magnets’ that pull oxygen into our body. Linoleic Acid and Linolenic Acid appear to hold oxygen in our cell membranes, where it acts as a barrier to viruses, fungi and bacteria.

EFAs substantially shorten the time required for fatigued muscles to recover after exercise. They facilitate the conversion of lactic acid to water and carbon dioxide. This is especially important to athletes.

EFAs increase metabolic rates. They increase the metabolic rate and burn more fat into carbon dioxide, water and energy sometimes resulting in weight loss.

Linolenic Acid and its derivatives can lower cholesterol by up to 65%. It also produces smooth, velvety skin, increases stamina, speeds healing, increases vitality, and brings a feeling of calmness. It reduces inflammation, water retention, platelet stickiness, and blood pressure. It also inhibits the growth of tumours and enhances some immune functions, reduces the pain and swelling of arthritis, and completely reverses premenstrual syndrome in some cases. It has been known to kill malaria and has been used successfully to treat bacterial infections.”
