When we take a look at history we can clearly see where the changes came about when the federal government banned hemp in the United States of America. Our forefathers were farmers who knew what worked in that given time and what happened? The American farmer was shut down by big brother! Why? One could only surmise but if you look at it like we do we can see that somewhere down the line someone was left out of the loop and did not profit as they probably thought they should. Industrial hemp was a booming American business dating back to far to remember. The use of recreational marijuana was vast and the money was good. Americans were thriving abroad. American farmers were hard working and started about 5:00 A.M. with their overhauls on working the fields nearly til sundown everyday except Sunday. Let’s take a look at what has transpired since then and how things may be taking shape all over again. Read on and see for yourself where this is all going…with a defunct American economy maybe this will bring us back…it is one product the federal government will have a hard time shipping out of the country. Meaning, they can’t move it to a different country to save on slave labor. Our American farmers will not put up with it for one moment….
Washington, DC: United States Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and 28 co-sponsors, including House Agriculture Committee ranking member Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN), have reintroduced legislation in Congress that requires the federal government to respect state laws allowing for the cultivation of industrial hemp. Hemp is a part of the plant species cannabis sativa that contains only trace (less than one percent) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis.
House Bill 525, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2013, amends the federal Controlled Substances Act to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of marijuana. The measure grants state legislatures the authority to license and regulate the commercial production of hemp as an industrial and agricultural commodity.
Eight states – Colorado, Maine, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia – have enacted statutory changes defining industrial hemp as a distinct agricultural product and allowing for its regulated commercial production. Passage of HR 525 would remove existing federal barriers and would permit these states and others the authority to do so without running afoul of federal anti-drug laws.
“Industrial hemp is a sustainable crop and could be a great economic opportunity for Kentucky farmers,” Rep. Massie stated in a press release. “Industrial hemp will give small farmers another opportunity to succeed.”
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) are supporting the introduction of a companion bill in the US Senate.
According to a Congressional Research Service report, “The United States is the only developed nation in which industrial hemp is not an established crop.”
Previous versions of the Industrial Hemp Farming Act have stalled in Congress. The issue has never before been debated in the Senate.
Cannabis, let’s face it, shall we? The legalization of the use of recreational marijuana is still far off from most people’s realm of thinking. Why? Well, we have little or no education with across the board information in where people can go to review and trust.”
WASHINGTON, DC — Legalize.co reports, Congressmen, from Oregon and Colorado will introduce two life changing bills this Tuesday. The Federal marijuana reform bills will go to Congress sometime on Tuesday, one that would end the federal prohibition of marijuana and allow states to determine their own policies, and the other that would legalize, regulate and tax marijuana on the federal level, or at least approved on a federal level. This is exciting news and will surely raise some eye brows but we really like what the congressmen are doing to at least align the state and federal government for the betterment of reform laws.

Cannabis: Get Ready! Cannabis civil war is on the horizon in the United States of America! Why, do I say this? Well, the United States Federal Government appears to be enraging the U.S. citizenry and is selectively enforcing prosecution on would be do-gooders who open medical marijuana dispensaries. This secret civil war began a few years ago when federal authorities began raiding medial marijuana dispensaries across Los Angeles County, California. Cannabis users are afraid of the federal government.
Mexican Drug Cartels are losing the drug battles with U.S. officials. Everyday, the D.E.A. seeks them out like cockroaches…The Mexican traffickers are widespread throughout the U.S. and most outdoor grows are being eradicated by the D.E.A. everyday here in America. The Mexican drug cartels are said to be organizations, although not very well organized they are still deemed dangerous by the D.E.A. Why? Well, it is not hard to figure out, the cartels are into more than just growing marijuana and the distribution thereof.
