Phoenix From the Ashes
For seventy years cannabis has been at the center of a global smear campaign. A newspaper mogul names William Randolph Hearst.
His newspaper mills used wood-based paper to deliver his headlines. Hemp-based mills were cheaper and better for global ecology.
“Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?”
Henry Ford – His Model-T car was constructed from hemp fibres in addition to running on hemp gasoline.
But they would mean Hearst’s mills would be shut down. As power-hungry individuals, he set to work to destroy the hemp plant.
Destroy it he nearly did with the help of the US government. This sentiment embedded in the UK as well as the modern world.
“That is not a drug. It’s a leaf”
