Rachael Maddow On The 75th Anniv. Of The End Of Beer Prohibition


MSNBC-TV's Rachael Maddow did her usual brilliant job combining historical lessons with modern problems. In this piece she looks at the history of prohibition and it's relevance to the modern drug war, the dumbest idea in the history of the American government.

We should learn the lessons of the past.

President Elect Barack Obama and his nominated Secretary of Commerce, Gov. Bill Richardson, should first end all hemp prohibition and immediately institute a fair tax income dedicated to solving our problems now. Issue micro loans for small businesses and post all public job opportunities that come out of the new works programs.

A hemp division should be instituted in the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, etc. to help folks use hemp to empower their lives. From coordinating maximum crop growth to job opportunities to market delivery, the government stands to make a fortune supporting and taxing the nations number one cash crop.

Encourage President Elect Barack Obama and nominated Secretary of Commerce, Gov. Bill Richardson, to pull an FDR and end hemp prohibition now. Post your thoughts on hemp at . If so inclined, please have a 1/1/9 hemp liberation day party and upload yourself and friends voicing your support for hemp. Tell them to save money, end the war on drugs.

For more on hemp, please visit the USA Hemp Museum, a private museum with a virtual wing. The museum's founder and curator, Richard M. Davis, author of HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION and the soon to be released HEMP FOR VICTORY: THE WONDER HERB (about medical hemp) has a ton of ideas for how we can use hemp to help us solve our problems now.
