Prohibition of Cannabis or hemp has thrown history and rationality out the window and replaced them with hard-line ideology and brute force. Billions of people are unaware of the corrupt conflicts of interest that initiated and sustain the suppression of hemp. Artificial divisions are perpetuated by those who disrespect the basic principles of human survival. Persecution disguised as protection from evil. Fascist propaganda enforced by those who have a vested interest in petrochemicals. Media hype about the cost of drugs on society, but little discussion on the cost of the ‘war on drugs’ in social and economic terms.
The war on hemp is purely political and has cost the world economy trillions of dollars in trying to enforce prohibition and the loss of industrial economic viability. Where is this approach taking us?
