I will provide nothing but the facts, so that we the people can make intelligent decisions about a subject the government clouds up with untruthfulness. Please read my petition and even though you might not smoke Cannabis, please observe with an open mind about all the beneficial qualities that have nothing to do with smoking, but are currently still as illegal.


FACT

· Deaths per year resulting from alcohol: 100,000
· Deaths per year resulting from tobacco: 430,000
· Deaths per year resulting from aspirin: 180- 1000
· Deaths per year resulting from legal drugs: 106,000
· Deaths that have ever occurred in direct result of Cannabis: 0 (that’s right zero)

FACT

· Farming 6% of the continental U.S. acreage with biomass crops (Hemp) would provide all of America’s Energy needs.
· Biomass can be converted into methane, methanol, or gasoline (which could eliminate our ties with the Middle East) at a cost comparable to petroleum and hemp is much better for the environment.
· Hemp fuel burns clean. Petroleum causes acid rain due to sulfur pollution.
· The use of Hemp Fuel does not contribute to global warming

FACT

· Hemp seed can be pressed into nutritious oil, which contains the highest amount of fatty acids in the plant kingdom. Essential oils are responsible for our immune system responses, and can clear the arteries of cholesterol and plaque.
· The byproduct of pressing the oil from hemp seed is a high quality protein seed cake. It can be used to bake into cakes, breads and casseroles. Hemp seed protein is one of mankind’s finest, most complete, and available-to-the body vegetable proteins.
· A Vegan or vegetarian can get all of the days required protein from a handful of hemp seed.

FACT

· Hemp is the oldest cultivated fiber plant in the world.
· Low-THC fiber hemp varieties developed by the French and others have been available for over 20 years. It is impossible to get high from fiber hemp. Over 600,000 acres of hemp is grown worldwide with no misuse problem.
· One acre of hemp can produce as much usable fiber as 4 acres of trees or two acres of cotton.
· Trees cut down take 50-500 years to grow, while hemp can be cultivated in as little as 100 days and can yield 4 times more paper over a 20 year period.
· Until 1883, from 75-90% of all paper in the world was made with cannabis hemp fiber including that for books, Bibles, maps, paper money, stocks and bonds, newspapers, etc.
· Hemp paper is longer lasting than wood pulp, stronger, acid-free, and chlorine free (Chlorine is estimated to cause up to 10% of all Cancers).
· Hemp paper can be recycled 7 times, wood pulp 4 times.
· Hemp particleboard may be up to 2 times stronger than wood particleboard and holds nails better.
· Hemp is a softer, warmer, and more water absorbent, than cotton and doesn’t stretch out.
· Half of the U.S. pesticides are used to treat cotton, while hemp has a natural pesticide.

FACT

· Almost any product that can be made from wood, cotton, or petroleum (including plastics) can be made from hemp. There are 25,000 known uses for hemp.
· For thousands of years virtually all good paints and varnishes were made with hemp seed oil and/or linseed oil.
· One acre of hemp produces as much cellulose fiber pulp as 4.1 acres of trees, making hemp a perfect material to replace trees for pressed board, particle board, and concrete construction molds.
· Heating and compressing plant fibers can create a practical, inexpensive, fire-resistant constructions material with excellent thermal and sound-insulating qualities.
· In 1941 Henry Ford built a plastic car made of fiber from hemp and wheat straw. Hemp is biodegradable, as synthetic plastic is not.

FACT

· Presidents Washington and Jefferson both grew hemp. Americans were legally bound to grow hemp during the Colonial Era and Early Republic. 
Thank you for reading my petition; I know we are a majority so lets stand up to make the change. As to date 36 states have shown interest into taking action towards a more relaxed Medicinal Marijuana program. Lets take it to the next step and start reaping these environment saving byproducts as well.

“We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. WE must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.” Dr. Martin Luther King.

  2. wow, i knew how helpful it could be in many medical ways but you just blew my mind lol. very informative. i only wish i could help more, but any way i could i would stand for what i believe in till i had no pulse and i believe we are all family, some are lost but hopefully not for good, i'd love for everyone to just get along. something people has been saying for since the beginning of humankind but now is the time to come together and fight for our freedom, real freedom. and unite as one. not a one world government but a one world fellowship of all humans, no one is better then anyone else we are all equal. a prime example is my dad he dropped out in the 10th grade and never got his GED but as he could never explain quantum physics like dr michio kaku, he is a jack of all trades, he knows this country like the back of his hand (been a trucker for nearly 24 years) he can build a great home with plumbing and power and everything with doing it mostly by himself. so i do not like the phrase "someone is smarter then someone" we are all equal and Gods creation and we have been given this opportunity called life and this wonderful gift called earth and we need to do our best to take care of our planet and to keep allowing generation after generation to have a good life and possibly one day crime, politics and money will be something our children will only read about in history.

    There you go man!
    Stay as cool as you can!
    Face piles of trials with smiles!

    It riles them to believe you know
    The WEB they weave!

    And keep on feeling FREE!

  4. First of all, I would like to say that I admire your work and dedication, but allow me to say my oppinion, and as you probably know is not illegal to grow hemp in Romania, in fact the government is supporting it, and Romania was the biggest producer of hemp in Europe. And still can be, but lazyness instaled there and people moved from farming and forgot it due to other distractions like internet and mooving from the country side to cityes, but in Romanian Agronomical University it teaches a lot of stuff about hemp. Now the interesting part is that there are a lot of Europeans founds available for growing HEMP (industrial hemp, cannabis sativa ), the only thing that is not legal is growing other forms of it geneticaly modified that some people take it as a nice high due to lots of nutrients, if you want to enjoy it do it natural... Go GREEN, but organic GREEN! and here is a government link wich shows it is still legal in ROMANIA
