I am just a PLANT!!
I am a simple plant. I am illegal for some reason. You may have smoked, boiled, or cooked me into food and ate me. I free your mind and body. I also may make you a little hungry. The most damage I can do is when you smoke me; I'll put a little tar onto your lungs. If you vaporize me though I am very healthy. I have never killed anyone in my life. you "high."
Cannabis users in Jamaica praise ganja's benefits for meditation, concentration, consciousness-raising and promoting a state of well being and self assertiveness. This kind of attitude adjustment, along with a healthier appetite and better rest, often represents the difference between feeling like you are "dying of" AIDS or cancer and feeling like you are "living with" AIDS or cancer. Cannabis also eases small pains and some big ones and helps senior citizens live with aches and pains like arthritis, insomnia and debilitating infirmities, and enjoy life in greater dignity and comfort. Legend has it, and medical evidence indicates, that cannabis is the best overall treatment for dementia, senility, and maybe Alzheimer's disease, for long-term memory "gain" and hundreds of other benefits. U.S. statistics of the 1970s indicated that you will live eight to 24 years longer if you substitute daily cannabis use for daily tobacco and alcohol use. New research is outlawed, of course.

As man is it against the laws of Nature, to make a plant and an amazing flower illegal? The United States is fighting a massive Drug War that many have forgotten about. They want to wipe out what they call the "scruge." Cannabis is not a scurge. As a matter of fact it's better than cotton. When you grow fields of cotton the roots make the soil very dry and not so healthy. (They used peanuts and soy bean plants to refertile the soil for the next harvest of cotton.) But whereas the roots from a Marijuana plant grow into the ground it breaks up the soil and brings back life to the soil. With cotton you can only use the cotton you picked, but with the Marijuana plant we can use the entire crop for over 15,000 thousand products that are made today and cost less to make. The Marijuana plant could make all that cheaper. The fibers in the plant are so strong and versatile you can do anything with Marijuana.
"If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the greenhouse effect and stop deforestation; then there is only one known annually renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world's paper and textiles; meet all of the world's transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time... and that substance is the same one that has done it before . . . CANNABIS/HEMP/MARIJUANA!
