Coincidence is the Lord working undercover.
Coincidentally a pro hemp president is elected and the oldest hemp stash reveals itself to the world. We could not post this fast enough. Thank you China.
In the weeks following the election of pro hemp "I inhaled frequently, that was the point" President Elect Barack Obama (and his now named Secretary of Commerce, even more pro hemp Gov. Bill Richardson), this was quietly released.
2,700-year-old marijuana stash found

"OTTAWA – Researchers say they have located the world's oldest stash of marijuana, in a tomb in a remote part of China.The cache of cannabis is about 2,700 years old and was clearly "cultivated for psychoactive purposes," rather than as fibre for clothing or as food, says a research paper in the Journal of Experimental Botany.
The 789 grams of dried cannabis was buried alongside a light-haired, blue-eyed Caucasian man, likely a shaman of the Gushi culture, near Turpan in northwestern China.
The extremely dry conditions and alkaline soil acted as preservatives, allowing a team of scientists to carefully analyze the stash, which still looked green though it had lost its distinctive odour.
"To our knowledge, these investigations provide the oldest documentation of cannabis as a pharmacologically active agent," says the newly published paper, whose lead author was American neurologist Dr. Ethan B. Russo.Remnants of cannabis have been found in ancient Egypt and other sites, and the substance has been referred to by authors such as the Greek historian Herodotus. But the tomb stash is the oldest so far that could be thoroughly tested for its properties.

We now have a pro hemp president and secretary of commerce elect, poised to make great, positive changes. Shifting back to a hemp based economy can have a powerfully healing effect, but we have to use our balls and demand the unconditional removal of all restrictions regarding the hemp plant and let it assume it's rightful place in the marketplace.
1. Include tax revenue from the #1 cash crop in the nation. The governor of California is crying about not having enough money while he continues to veto hemp bills that could provide a subatantial revenue to city, state and federal governments.
2. Shift to clean, easily renewable hemp bio fuel and biomass. A great book on the subject is HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION by Richard M. Davis, founder and curator of the USA Hemp Museum.
3. Allow the use of hemp medicine in the process of good health, thereby reducing health care costs.
4. Encourage small business opportunities in hemp, including restoring the family farm structure for raw material growth. There is a strong place in the Information Age economy for the restoration of the family farm and other home based businesses.
TELL OBAMA, TIME TO LET OUR HEMP PLANT GO!!!!
What's next? Get hemped. For more information on hemp please visit the USA Hemp Museum, a private museum with a virtual wing.
