Green Economy, Not in the USA

America, the great bastion of freedom, just not when it comes to cannabis. Uruguay is the first nation in South America to allow some limited cultivation of cannabis hemp. Our friend’s to the north have had this right for a number of years. Why can’t American farmers grow this crop? The question has no logical response.

Look at the poppy seed that is used on your bagel. It has trace amounts of opiates, yet it is not regulated by the DEA, why cannabis? Does a field of seed poppies not resemble the drug variety? These inconsistencies are going to slow this GREEN ECONOMY from coming to fruition.

Cannabis is grown in a number of European nations. France, Great Britain, Spain to name a few!!! Do our farmers not deserve the same financial security hemp has brought to other farmers? The green economy will bring our destabilized small time farmers the comfort needed to do a good job! I live in an agriculturally dependent state, and cannabis hemp could be used as a rotation crop with wheat, barley, and alfalfa seamlessly.

This cash value added crop could help farmers not have to sell their land to other agribusinesses conglomerates. Maybe this is a motivating factor. Many of the subsidies given to the agricultural sector of OUR economy are received by these large conglomerates. This is not the green economy I envisioned!! Stealing the land from under the feet of a small time farmer is EVIL!!

The American farmer was the example of a true entrepreneur!! This has been forgotten in the last 50 years. Farmer, instead of being producers, has become nothing more than a glorified consumer. Consume fertilizer, consume agrichemicals, and buy Monsanto’s seeds each year because you can’t save any seed from the year before. This was the green economy the powers that be wanted. But, we know what green economy WE want. That is the CANNABIS ECONOMY!!!

Really I see it as closer now then it has ever been!! We are at the crest of a great tsunami!! No amount of hand wringing by the prohibitionists is going to change this new GREEN ECONOMY!!!
