Respect For The Ganja Planters
My Lords and my Ladies, I wish to devote this section to certain matters touching on the rights of the people to health and security.
It is weird to remember that today we live in a society where tobacco companies are legal and respectable entites, while the ganja planter is a hated and demonized felon.
It is an irony a sad spectacle, but we shall disect it in the following paragraphs.
Tobacco companies make billions of dollars in sales each year. Tobacco companies seduce hundreds of million of youngsters between the ages of 8 years old and 12 years old into the use of the highly addictive drug nicotine through ad campaigns and promotions. For most of these youngsters it becomes a life long habit which leads to costly consequences for those youths and for the society.
For those youths, nicotine is the gateway drug since many of them will pursue the other highs of other different drugs after experimenting with the first buzz of tobacco.
Billions of people all over the world are addicted to the active drug/chemical in the substance to known as tobacco. This chemical as most of us know is the infamous nicotine.
Nicotine is bad. It is a chemical poison pure and true. Nicotine in the right dosage (and we are talking of milliliters) can poison the system of a man rapidly and kill him. Nicotine is a poison.
18th century North and South America, people used nicotine as a pesticide. In Africa people used and still use nicotine as a pesticide.
That is the essence of nicotine. It is a poison. For that reason, the aboriginals of North America who gave tobacco and nicotine to the world, who used tobacco for thousands of years as a sacred plant, did not smoke tobacco. They burnt the leave in ceremonial fireplaces and inhaled the smoke as it waffed in the air. They did not, they did not smoke tobacco every day like people do today.
This is the first people on earth to ever smoke this poison tobacco through their lungs on a daily basis. This western people. Our west. Yes, we are the only ones to introduce and sustain smoking of tobacco in the history of mankind.
This is because of the ad campaigns, other charms and wiles of tobacco companies, who make it seem right, normal, proper, and sexy that people should smoke a chemical poison. A pesticide.
Besides nicotine, there are hundreds of other chemicals mixed into that tobacco including arsenic, tar, nitre, etc all carcenogenious substances.
Millions are dieing of causes directly related to the ingestion of these poisonous chemicals.
Yet the nicotine mechants are honourable men in the society. They leave in opulence and arrogance over the bones of those they poisoned. They build libraries, churches, and leave endowments in the universities.
They are the pillars of the economy of the western world. Tobacco companies are protected by the laws of the “highly developed” western countries. They are absolved from blame under a legal fiction of “self responsibility” i.e. that every one is responsible for the consequences of his consumption choices.
But don’t ever forget that those men in their cadillacs and limousines are all guilty of the murder of those little youths entrapped between the ages of 8 years old and 16 years old and enticed into the highly addicitive, difficult to break habit of nicotine consumption. They had no chances against the wily wolves set on them, there were just between 8 years and 16 years old. That is when most tobacco smokers started. That is when they are enslaved to this poisonous drug nicotine.
And then they are slowly poisoned. Over the years…for sure. They are struck with all kinds of affliction including, cancer, and cardiac disease. They die slow painful and costly deaths eventually. Costly to themselves and to society. Amidst this tragedy the tobacco man is a billonaire power broker in the system, while the ganja dealer is threatened with a long jail sentence.
Now, the herb is something that has been checked all over the world. In several hundreds of scientific studies. And they come up with this idea they call THC and CB. So THC and CB are the two main chemical substances in marijauna. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol whereas CB stands for cannabinol. CB is divided into two categories CB1 and CB2.
Now, research all over the world, find out that THC and CB1 and CB2 do a whole heap of work. They prevent the occurrence of cancers because they are anti-inflammatories. They keep the body in a certain hemostatic balance which promotes vitality and longevity.
CBs have been found to be natural components of the human cells. It is as if each cell has a pre-configured setting for cannabinol. Only cannbinol molecules either manufactured by the body (yes, the body does manufacture its own cannabinol something called dopamine or anandamide) or gotten from the herb can fit into those settings. Once the cannabinol molecules are co-join with those pits in each body cell they induce a state of good health systemically and emotionally.
What we are smpily saying here is that ganja is not a poison. The herb is a a giver and promoter of life as confirmed by scientific research. Yet, it is declared a criminal plant.
Here is the herb, the giver of life, wisdoma and wealth. A guardian of the land, here is the herb, and see how them make it a criminal thing.
They set police to burn down acres of farm land in Africa, in Jamaica, to destroy the livelihood of the humble farmer, in the name of fighting ganja, a confirmed giver of life.
Today the herb is used in hospitals, and incorporated as part of the medical tools used to fight and manage critical conditions such as glacoma, certain types of cancer, emphysema, immune suppression, chronic pains etc in countries such as Holland, Spain, Canada and the Scandinavian countries.
Yet, in those same countries, as well as other countries of the western world and those within their sphere of influence, there is a negative official attitude to the herb.
The fight against the herb goes on in United States though the free will of the people is fighting back now. The fight against ganja goes on in Africa, killing, crushing and destroying poor farmers and traders because they trade in a substance that promotes life and wisdom, while the killers of the earth, the makers of the tobacco poison, they are the ones that appoint judges and lawyers over us. And they set the police against we to destroy we farms, and we stalls, and to destroy the seed that grows the herb which Jah created.
The herb which cures the earth.
They criminalize the herb which cures the earth and promote nicotine.
They also promote alcohol, psychosis-inducing anti-depressants, morphine (numerous types of pharmaceuticals incorporate morphine e.g. codine), heroine (remember the opium war), cocaine and many other addictions.
It is an irony, a sad spectacle, we see it every day.
One must make his choices in a wise manner, in these times.
