Dear Al Gore,
First of all, thank you, for your tireless service to our country, our people and the planet. You have shown a genuine concern and commitment to the future of all mankind.
As you seek solutions to the problems facing our world, I wanted to draw your attention to the benefits of industrial hemp. History, as well as science, demonstrates that hemp could end world hunger as well as help reduce CO2 levels – which would reduce pollution. From seed to harvest in just 4-5 months, this robust plant consistently produces excellent food, fuel and fiber.
Todays headline: House GOP plans $659M border bill
House Republicans plan to vote Thursday on $659 million in funding to assist authorities at the border, far less than the $3.7 billion requested by President Obama weeks ago.
Question: The millions/billions of dollars would be used at the border to keep hungry people from entering our country? Is this Washington’s solution? Nothing about offering help to hungry people?
Al, lets shift our focus from us, the US and our border, to the hungry people who could use some help. If each household in Central America received a (Monsanto free) Hemp Farm kit – they could grow their own food. The hemp could also be used for fuel and fiber. As the hemp is growing it would reduce CO2 levels. A win-win situation for all.
Surely, the US government knows of the benefits of hemp as noted in their “Hemp for Victory” campaign of 1942.
Hemp for Victory is a black-and-white United States government film made during World War II and released in 1942, explaining the uses of hemp, encouraging farmers to grow as much as possible. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Industry knows too, as noted in the 1941 Model T. “Grown from the soil” Ford’s Hemp car. From Google Images
Al, do you know why it’s still illegal for people to use? Apart from the stiff penalties incurred if caught using it, no one seems to know what the harm is in using hemp. Yet, we all know the benefits. If there is anything you can do to help us end world hunger, please let us know.
