Cannabis /Hemp / 'marijuana' / 'pot'

Shan,

There is only one known annually renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world's paper and textiles; meeting all of the world's transportation, industrial and home energy needs; simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time...And that substance is—the same one that did it all before...Cannabis Hemp...Marijuana! Because cannabis hemp is, overall, the strongest, most-durable, longest-lasting natural soft-fiber on the planet.

Its leaves and flower tops (marijuana) were, depending on the culture, the first, second or third most-important and most-used medicines for two-thirds of the world's people for at least 3,000 years, until the turn of the 20th century.

Botanically, hemp is a member of the most advanced plant family on Earth. It is a dioecious (having male, female and sometimes hermaphroditic, male and female on same plant), woody, herbaceous annual that uses the sun more efficiently than virtually any other plant on our planet, reaching a robust 12 to 20 feet or more in one short growing season.

It can be grown in virtually any climate or soil condition on Earth, even marginal ones. Hemp is, by far, Earth's premier, renewable natural resource. This is why hemp is so very important.

Shan,

Alternative Agriculture

A subsistence farmer in Hawaii, Jon Biloon shared his studies of alternative agriculture, and discussed the dangers of genetically modified (GM) foods and how agri-business is robbing individuals of health and spirituality.

The genetic modification process is 30 to 40 years old and originally started out with good intentions, he noted, but now foods grown this way are associated with health risks (such risks are documented in the book Genetic Roulette).

Fancy standing against Dave Cameron in Witney instead - just to offer some kind of challenge to yourself??!

Bye bye Deep Blue! Bye bye 30 year Thatcherite revolution!
