Weed Power! Hemp-Based Batteries Could Change the Way We Store Energy Forever

Our device’s electrochemical performance is on par with or better than graphene-based devices,” Mitlin says. “The key advantage is that our electrodes are made from biowaste using a simple process, and therefore, are much cheaper than graphene.

Can We Sue?

In the US the Federal Government criminalises cannabis users because they claim that marijuana is a schedule one drug with absolutely no medicinal value.  Millions of people all around the world, especially Americans, have suffered, are suffering and will suffer because of this ‘law’.

But we know they were lying, and we know that they know they have been lying to us since AT LEAST 1974 when the very same federal government patented the use of cannabis as a neuroprotectant and to beat cancer.

So, does this mean that any half-decent lawyer could put a case together that prosecuted the Federal Government of the US on behalf of anyone who has ever been so much as looked at by the police for possession of cannabis?

Fuck em, and their law.

The Bogus Drug War: Who Funds the War on Drugs?

Who Funds the Drug War?

Who is paying to fight the legalization of marijuana? Big Pharma, cops, prison guards, and beer companies.

Big Pharma hates marijuana because it will cut down on their prescription pain pill business which kills over 16,000 people per year.

US takes 84% of legal opiate drugs and makes up only 5% of the population. This is a massive cash cow for them and they don’t want to lose it to a safe, inexpensive alternative.

Australian Chief Minister and Federal Police in Baby Torture Scandal

1406715976580.jpg-300x0

In a clear demonstration of who they work for the Australian Federal Police and Chief Minister have combined forces to harass and persecute a man for trying to save the life of a terminally ill little girl by supplying the girl’s mother with cannabis for her treatment. After going public with the news of how successful the cannabis treatment was being the man’s home was raided and the little girl has been deprived of the medicine that was saving her life.  Under orders from the Australian Chief Minister ‘Abbey’ is now being tortured by a condition that could be alleviated with cannabis. This bust shows how keen the Australian government are to support pharmaceutical company profits and racist drug laws over the health and well-being of human lives.

Surely a better response would have been something like:

“Really?  You’ve found a plant that can treat a baby who would otherwise die?  How interesting, we’ll set up a medical trial – have a medal!”

But no. Shut up. Obey and do not ask questions. And all you other people watching – look! Look how we deal with your kind, dare to cross us and we’ll fuck you right up, check it out – we even like to torture babies!

Human rights?  The Australian state is refusing this baby the right to be a human, and they are quite happy see it tortured in death.  All in the name of profit.

Revolutionise and Evolve with Cannabis

canrevpic

 

 

Cannabis, revolution and evolution go hand in hand in hand. Cannabis can be utilised as a major product in the industries of medicine, construction, textiles, agriculture, food and plastics. It could revolutionise these industries. Our environment would strengthen. Humanity would evolve.

The full scope of cannabis’s medicinal properties are not yet fully known, but we do know that the plant has a vast multitude of beneficial applications, both internally and externally. In various different forms it is good for the skin, the internal organs, the central nervous system, the immune system and the brain. It is a medicine that can cure and treat literally thousands of different conditions. The normalised use of cannabis medicines would revolutionise the pharmaceutical industry.

Cannabis can also be used in the construction industry, as a replacement for concrete. ‘Hempcrete’ blocks and slabs are a far more ecologically sound and economically sensible than the grossly polluting concrete industry of today. Hempcrete also weighs a lot less, has far better insulating properties and lasts just as long as concrete. It is a superior alternative. Resins produced from cannabis can also be used in the building industry where oil-based products are currently used. A building industry free to use cannabis would revolutionise not only itself but also the way we build and live in our homes and workplaces.

Textiles made from cannabis are famous. From the fine fibres of small cannabis sativa plants to the large, course fibres used to make ropes and canvas, cannabis can replace cotton and nylon quite happily. It is far more ecologically sound to produce and resilient in use than cotton or nylon, it is even more versatile and can be worked just as finely. Cannabis fibre can not only revolutionise the worlds clothing industry, but in doing so it will have a most beneficial impact on the worlds ecology.

Agriculturally cannabis is a wonderful plant. It grows faster than almost anything else, grows where not much else will grow and fills a number of important functions. Animals love to eat it – horses, cows and sheep especially. It is a great plant for feeding cattle. Its nutritional requirements for growth are complimentary to corn. Corn is a staple human food source, cannabis grown in rotation with corn ensures constant soil fertility, thus negating the need for oil-based fertiliser.  Due to its fast growth cannabis is also very effective at cleaning soil form heavy metal contamination, this is desperately needed in the lands of northern Japan after the Fukushima disaster and Iraq after the use of thousands of tonnes of depleted uranium weapons. Legalised use of the cannabis plant would revolutionise large parts of the agricultural industry and have a huge beneficial impact on our environment.

As a food source cannabis should be invaluable. Cannabis seeds contain many fatty acids that are incredibly good for the human brain. Our traditional source of these fatty acids is fish. The worlds waters are famously and desperately overfished – soon we will need to look for another source of omega acids to maintain our global health. The cannabis plant itself can be ingested by food or drink – it is a medible plant, meaning it is both medicinal and edible. As well as curing and relieving conditions and symptoms cannabis can also be consumed in food as a preventive medicine. Through the health benefits gained, the widespread use of cannabis in food would revolutionise our personal and communal existences on this planet.

Cannabis is also used to produce oils from which plastics are made. As biofuel cannabis is not efficient at a vast industrial scale but it could be used very effectively on a more localised level where conditions are suited. In this form it’s use is far more suited to that of a bioplastic. Mercedes Benz and BMW already make their dashboards and door panels from ‘hemp’ bioplastics and it could be used with or to replace petrochemical plastics in almost any application.

When grown and utilised by all these industries the cannabis crops of the world would become a giant store for atmospheric carbon. Industries that currently rely heavily on fossil fuel reserves, thus transferring underground carbon to the earth’s biosphere, would become major actors in reversing that trend if cannabis was used instead of cotton, concrete, petrochemical plastics and gmo industrial cattle feed.

Cannabis can and should be a major part of humanity’s future. It’s illegality is the result of a tiny minority of vested business interests and exploitative political figures. It is no coincidence that the century of cannabis prohibition has been the most violent and traumatic in our self-created history. The vested interests that profit from the illegality of cannabis are the same interests that profit from the proliferation of war and dis ease. Global acceptance of cannabis use in all industries would precipitate a global revolution in which humanity and the planet would become healthier, wealthier, cleaner and infinitely more sustainable. For the reasons given above it is clear that the established oligarchy of the day will resist the full legalisation and normalisation of cannabis use around the world because it runs contrary to so many still-powerful agendas. Its up to us. Spread the word about cannabis – it’s not illegal to talk about it.

“We can eat this plant, drink it, take it as medicine, live in houses made from it, feed it to our animals, fuel our cars with it, wear clothes made from it – it can shelter us, feed us, employ us and keep us healthy! When the world understands this humanity will be able to rejoice! There will be an abundance of all for everyone!”  

Dr Ben Dlamini, Swaziland, 2013

Cannabis Tea

Green Tea

 

Making cannabis tea is a famous way to consume the plant.  There are a few different ways to prepare a cannabis brew, some of them will get you high and others won’t but all the different methods of preparation have a multitude of physiological benefits.

To harness the psychoactive power of the plant in a tea it is best to use well dried and cured plant material with a high THC content. A bit of milk will help things along the way.

However, another method is to use the same dried and cured high THC content plant material but without adding milk. This will spare you from the full psychoactive power of the plant but it works wonders for calming the stomach. It is a good anti-worm brew and a nice big mug of it before you go to bed will give you a great nights sleep. As a medicinal/medible drink it has a vast array of therapeutic and curing benefits including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-infection properties.

Sufferers of conditions such as Alzhiemers, MS, and Parkinsons disease will find that a tea made from plant material higher in CBDs then THC to be more beneficial. A high CBD cannabis brew also has multiple physiological benefits, including anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, stomach calming and a slight sedative effect.

If you are looking to consume the acid forms of the plant’s active substances (THCA & CBDA instead of THC & CBD) tea is probably not the best form of ingestion. Heat speeds up the decarboxylation process in which THCA and CBDA change into their non-acid and psychoactive forms so people looking for those substances are better off raw juicing.

Murdered by a SWAT Team for $2 of Weed

Add another body to the drug war pile. From the Tampa Bay Times, here is the story of the death of Jason Westcott.

A man who had partied at Westcott’s home was plotting to rob him. An itinerant motorcycle mechanic, Westcott didn’t have much — two televisions and a handgun that once belonged to his brother were perhaps the most valuable possessions in his 600-square-foot house in Seminole Heights — but he was terrified by his would-be intruder’s threats to kill him.

Police tracked down the suspect and warned him to stay away. Westcott, those close to him said, was left with a word of advice from the investigating officers: If anyone breaks into this house, grab your gun and shoot to kill.

On the night of May 27, as armed men streamed through his front door, Westcott grabbed his gun. But the 29-year-old didn’t have a chance to shoot before he died in a volley of gunfire. And those who killed him weren’t robbers.

They were police officers from the same agency he had enlisted to protect his home.
