Cannabis is far more than just pot, weed or marijuana. Cannabis is an entire genus of plants including the non-psychoactive hemp varieties and it's a safe and effective medicinal herb. A recent study confirmed that the CBD cannabinoid in cannabis stops the spread of aggressive cancers in their tracks. Hemp is a valuable commodity crop that is actually four times more efficient in converting solar energy into usable biomass energy than any other crop. The federal prohibition against this valuable plant may be ending very soon.
If this court fairly considers all the facts it will likely issue a court order removing the cannabis plant from Nixon's Controlled Substances Act completely. After all, both synthetic and organic THC which is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid (drug?) extracted from cannabis, has already been rescheduled to Schedule III by the DEA so that Big Pharma can market their grossly overpriced and under effective Marinol and Sativex.
Sec. 1308.13 Schedule III.Cannabis is not a drug, it's an entire genus of plants including hemp. The liberation of cannabis/hemp in America will completely reform our domestic productive economy. More than 25,000 products including advanced biofuels can be made better, stronger, liter, more durable and less expensive from hemp. Once our farmers are allowed to grow hemp as a normal rotation crop small local factories and cottage style industries will grow right alongside the hemp in the fields. Millions of green living wage jobs that cannot be outsource will be produced all across America. Cannabis will not only save our domestic economy from Wall Street domination, Cannabis will save the world.
