California, the largest political unit in the USA and eighth largest global economy, can show the way to the future by decriminalizing the ultimate sustainable domestic resource- Cannabis.
The California Hemp Act of 2016 creates funding for cannabis research, and for the development of new cannabis industries, creating millions of jobs with a new, truly green economy, with valuations potentially in the trillions of dollars.
This vital natural resource Cannabis Hemp, which was made illegal under a false propaganda campaign in 1937, can provide multitudes of non-toxic products, perhaps most importantly bio based oil, energy, and plastics without the tragic loss of life, security concerns, and wars due to foreign dependence, or catastrophic toxic oil spills. This is the ultimate renewable resource, way more efficient than corn, soy, or anything else. It can also provide building materials, insulation and even plastics, paints, and varnishes that are green, biodegradable, and non-toxic.
Hemp seeds are a super-food providing 17 different amino acids and providing omega 6 and 3 in the perfect 3-1 ratio. Hempseed oil contains the highest total essential fatty acids at 80% of total. It is so resilient and easy to grow that it still grows feral in all 50 states. Cannabis adds nutrients and improves soil as it grows.
Like firewood and whale oil, the petrochemical industry has had a good run- they’ve made their billions and now have us on the edge of a dangerous ecological cliff. It’s time to replace their fossil fuel with renewable ‘carbon neutral’ fuels from plant resources. It’s time to replace their oil based plastics and synthetic fibers with renewable ‘carbon negative’ plant resources, specifically Cannabis, the one plant uniquely qualified to fit the need.
It’s not enough to just allow our citizens the right to legally use pot as other state’s have done. With the passing of the CHA, California will be the first state to decriminalize the cannabis hemp plant and restore it to it’s historic place in our world as the earth’s #1 renewable natural resource.
The initiative is simple- make Cannabis Hemp 100% legal the way it used to be- and save our economy and our environment.
