Welcome to the revised "The Truth About Hemp" Forum!

We will have intelligent discussions about this useful and medicinal plant here.

:D Mind your Manners! Politeness is a Virtue here.

I do not use, grow, or possess pot (or any other illegal substance). However, recently I learned a Truth. America, (and the world) is in trouble. We will run out of oil. The toxic byproducts of oil and other products are a long term disaster. Our economy is stagnant. The Diesel engine was designed to run on hemp oil. Henry Ford's first cars ran on hemp oil. We must rediscover the history and incredible usefulness of hemp - and change the Federal law. Today's technology, combined with renewable hemp, would make our Country strong.

History, the Internet, and countless reference books prove that the founding fathers of our country grew and used hemp. Hemp was very good for everyone on earth - until about 1920 or so, when powerful men discovered how to import oil - and hemp, the world's most unique and useful crop, was renamed Marijuana, lies were invented and spread by media, and it was banned.

Natures best source of fiber, medicine, fuel, food, hope, peace, and much more - is NOW legal, And will be used for low-cost food, fiber, paper, lumber, medicines, oil for cooking, and fuel for cars. In 2019 the laws finally changed so HEMP regains it's Royal status in Nature, and we will let it help mankind again.

Solar, Wind, and other energy is not going to get us out of trouble soon enough. Using food crops for fuel is insanity.Now that the legal status has changed: the re-introduction of hemp's many uses, will provide vast improvements to the economy, pollution, mental health, crime, world hunger, violence, revenue creation, and saving tax money.

The US Government has a patent on Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants  (Thank you, Lucy!)

No medical value. Liars!!! in 2001 The United States of America as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services (Washington, DC) filed a patent claiming Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants!

US Patent 6630507B:

Description


FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention concerns pharmaceutical compounds and compositions that are useful as tissue protectants, such as neuroprotectants and cardioprotectants. The compounds and compositions may be used, for example, in the treatment of acute ischemic neurological insults or chronic neurodegenerative diseases.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Permanent injury to the central nervous system (CNS) occurs in a variety of medical conditions, and has been the subject of intense scientific scrutiny in recent years. It is known that the brain has high metabolic requirements, and that it can suffer permanent neurologic damage if deprived of sufficient oxygen (hypoxia) for even a few minutes. In the absence of oxygen (anoxia), mitochondrial production of ATP cannot meet the metabolic requirements of the brain, and tissue damage occurs. This process is exacerbated by neuronal release of the neurotransmitter glutamate, which stimulates NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate), AMPA (.alpha.-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate) and kainate receptors. Activation of these receptors initiates calcium influx into the neurons, and production of reactive oxygen species, which are potent toxins that damage important cellular structures such as membranes, DNA and enzymes.

The brain has many redundant blood supplies, which means that its tissue is seldom completely deprived of oxygen, even during acute ischemic events caused by thromboembolic events or trauma. A combination of the injury of hypoxia with the added insult of glutamate toxicity is therefore believed to be ultimately responsible for cellular death. Hence if the additive insult of glutamate toxicity can be alleviated, neurological damage could also be lessened. Anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory agents have been proposed to reduce damage

Is the War on Drugs doing more harm than good? In a bold talk, drug policy reformist Ethan Nadelmann makes an impassioned plea to end the "backward, heartless, disastrous" movement to stamp out the drug trade. He gives two big reasons we should focus on intelligent regulation instead.

Quote
What has the War on Drugs done to the world? Look at the murder and mayhem in Mexico, Central America, so many other parts of the planet, the global black market estimated at 300 billion dollars a year, prisons packed in the United States and elsewhere, police and military drawn into an unwinnable war that violates basic rights, and ordinary citizens just hope they don't get caught in the crossfire, and meanwhile, more people using more drugs than ever. It's my country's history with alcohol prohibition and Al Capone, times 50.

0:48 Which is why it's particularly galling to me as an American that we've been the driving force behind this global drug war. Ask why so many countries criminalize drugs they'd never heard of, why the U.N. drug treaties emphasize criminalization over health, even why most of the money worldwide for dealing with drug abuse goes not to helping agencies but those that punish, and you'll find the good old U.S. of A.

1:16 Why did we do this?
