  2. It is interesting that Noam Chomsky notes the class-based motivation for marijuana prohibition, but fails to mention the greater economic motivation for the prohibition of Cannabis, due in large part to the economic competitiveness of Cannabis against chemically intensive industries (timber for paper, pharmaceuticals, GMO soy for protein, cotton for cloth, etc…). Ending marijuana prohibition begins with dispelling the most obvious myth; that law enforcement can’t tell the difference between marijuana plants and low-THC industrial strains of Cannabis. This very thin lie has crippled small scale farming and organic agriculture in the U.S., threatens food insecurity and imposes essential resource scarcity on our nation. Cannabis is a recognized “strategic resource” — it CAN’T be “Schedule One” because it is critical to national security. Unique and essential for three specific reasons (nutritionally, ecologically, industrially) Cannabis is valuable far beyond the rightful jurisdiction of any court.

  3. “Essential civilian demand”(1,2,10) for an “herb bearing seed” (3, 4) of known and demonstrated “strategic resource” value (5-12) “of first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country”(12) is the surest, most time-efficient legal avenue for ending all prohibitions and regulation of Cannabis agriculture, manufacture and trade. Cannabis is valuable beyond the rightful jurisdiction of any court because it is both unique and essential to national security and global integrity. (13) It is both fraudulent and treasonous to tolerate obvious disinformation being presented as fact by the DEA (14) regarding a critically important agricultural resource.

    Time is the limiting factor in the equation of survival. Every spring planting season that passes without the benefits of Cannabis, is gone forever. Considering our responsibility to future generations, and the creatures with whom we share this planet, it is everyone’s responsibility of to exercise essential civilian demand as soon as possible in order to obviate the essential resource scarcity that has been illegally imposed.

    The evolution of revolution is revaluation: Cannabis is essential, not illegal.

    “Viva la revaluación!”

    Blessed rushes to all our relations,
