Cannabis herb affects people very differently. Some don’t feel much at all. Some just get sleepy. Personally I had massive insights in the beginning. I saw clearly how insane our alcohol-tobacco-pharma system was, and realized how amazing society could be when we bring this central plant ally on a large scale. I mean, it’s been in the center of human civilization for ages – material, medical, spiritual. It’s seeds are an amazing food source, it’s fibers were probably used for much of the first clothes, tents, sails, papers, ropes, etc. It’s time our governments, and the industries that have been built around the war on hemp, end the war on this plant and we embrace it’s gifts fully.
You know how gold used to be money. Then banks deposited gold and gave certificates for deposits of gold, and how these certificates in circulation could be made more of than there was deposited gold as long as people didn’t demand their gold all at once? And, now we’re in a position of almost all money in circulation being tied to/backed by debt, oil trade and military power?
Well, I would like to suggest one parallel system – hemp backed currency.
As hemp can be used for tens of thousands of everyday items of every kind, why not processing plants, factories and stores for hemp products? The whole production chain fairly locally, starting with the small- or big scale farmer. Anyone could bring a load of hemp – herb or industrial – to the processing plant, get it assessed, and get currency in return, to spend in the connected stores.
