And yet not one second of disruption, in supply or demand.
It disgusts me we pay billions every year, so these 'plant police' can go play cops and robbers over something as silly as marijuana. The evil genius who decided we needed to drive the country broke over such foolishness (1.5 Trillion 'accounted for' spent since 1972) and in the meantime it get's easier to get, less expensive, better quality, and millions of old folks now prefer to use it instead of toxic pharmaceuticals.
Time for this nation to do some SERIOUS growing up, admittance and maybe even an apology or two, and quit spending our time and money on a plant that has been around since the beginning of time, has caused ZERO deaths in all of it's thousands of years of recorded history, and saved the US in two major world wars (in the second WW we had not only destroyed our hemp production, but destroyed all the seeds in all our wisdom. When Japan took over the Philippines, the State Dept said unless we rebuilt the American hemp industry in 6 months, we would lose the war. It was considered 2nd of the TOP THREE resources we HAD to secure if we were to be victorious. We had to scramble to our allies and only had enough seed for 350k bushels that first year, but by the next we were up to several million bushels, because hemp grows that quick and is that forgiving. If that wasn't a sign from God about how ridiculous we had been over this plant, I don't know what was).)
Texas (for example) spends 250 million at the STATE level (not including exponentially more federal dollars) every year playing 'plant police'. Isn't it time to stop the nonsense?
