Eddie Lepp just got 10 years.
End hemp prohibition now and free all non violent drug war prisoners. Save billions in prison costs.

There are a group of officers who signed up to protect We The People.
LEAP is awesome.
"Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) is a 10,000-member organization representing cops, judges, prosecutors, prison wardens and others who now want to legalize and regulate all drugs after witnessing the horrors on the front lines of the "war on drugs."

Hempology 101 ideas to help science drive policy from the USA Hemp Museum, www.hempmuseum.org, Richard M. Davis, founder & curator.
- We can transform ocean water to drinking water using distillers and desalinization plants powered by hemp energy.
- We can use hemp medicine & abundant clean water to improve our health.
- Using non-toxic hemp paper, clothing & building materials reduces environmental pollution & water use.
- Hemp biomass (wood) and biofuel (oil) could safely solve the energy crisis.
- Encourage the automotive industry to create an aftermarket that upgrades engines from petro to flex fuel.
- Hemp’s 6 foot root system repairs damaged land, aerating the soil.
- Hemp scrubs the air of excess CO2 as it grows. There is plenty of federal land (the feds own about 1/3 of the United States) for large scale growing to address global warming and re-establish family farms. Plant hemp .
- A 20% hemp tax on recreational grades would be large while saving prison costs.
There are volumes of hemp research already done. Ending hemp prohibition provides significant boosts to our environment, economy, health care system and for millions, personal well being.
Below is a slight expansion on the science/truth about how we can use hemp to help us solve our problems.
1. When the problem is a shortage of clean water, the solution is to create more clean water. Hemp can help create clean water.
a. Use locally grown hemp biomass to power coastal water distillers and desalination plants . These technologies powered by hemp can convert ocean water into clean drinking water. For example,
b. Use hemp biofuel to transport the clean water.
2. When the problem is too much strain on the health care system, the solution is to reduce the strain by reducing the number of patients. Stress kills and key hemp grades (medical & recreational) reduce stress. In addition to growing and using effective 5,000 year old hemp medicine and foods, as described in Richard M. Davis’ museum tour book HEMP FOR VICTORY: THE WONDER HERB, use the newfound abundant water supply to promote hydrotherapy. Jethro Kloss's book, BACK TO EDEN has a chapter on the subject - The Water Cure recipe is on line.
3. When the problem is too many toxins in the environment, the solution is to produce radically fewer toxins, zero tolerance where possible. The Industrial Age was dominated by cotton and polyester. The Information Age demands comfortable, environmentally empowering, healthy hemp fabrics. Replacing cotton/polyester with non toxic hemp reduces the quantity of chemicals we put into our environment and the amount of water needed in processing.
4. When the problem is too much CO2 in the atmosphere, the solution is to remove the excess CO2, which hemp is a biomass champion at doing. To reduce air pollution, shift from petro to flex-fuel conversion engines that run hemp biofuel.
5. When the problem is a lack of activity in the automotive industry, the solution is to create more activity in the automotive industry. Auto manufacturers can quickly develop an aftermarket converting their existing customer base from petro to flex fuel engines that burn hemp and other biofuels. Tax credits should apply.
6. When the problem is toxic and damaged soil, the solution is to aerate and clean the soil. When land is burnt, hemp can help heal it. Hemp’s up to 6’ root system aerates soil, cleaning/fortifying the land and empowering our rivers, necessary for peace of mind.
7. When the problem is waste, the solution is conservation. Hemp is a low water use plant that is already being grown on unused federal land. The way we make our paper, clothing and building materials is counterproductive, causing cancers and other health problems. Current methods use a lot of water. Hemp usage saves water in both growing and processing. Hemp is a weed.
8. When the problem is the government is broke, the solution is to tax the nation’s #1 cash crop, hemp. Just a 20% tax on recreational grades of hemp would create a huge tax income. Let’s not forget to add the reduction in costs from our prison (hemp peace pipe) and hospital (medical hemp) populations. Conservative estimates put the net income to the government around a trillion dollars a year in saved prison costs and tax income. That does not factor in the additional income and retail taxes generated by the demand for safe, inexpensive hemp products, jobs and business opportunities.
We must implement the end of hemp prohibition based on wisdom and common sense. We can grow from here and be free.

PeaceBud explains how the political changes in America's past along with the industrial revolution has led us into a historical era of post-industrial Oil Wars. Oil being a resource we don't need, as Cannabis Hemp could be grown to provide all the ethanol our country needs for driving. Did you know that the automobile industry was meant to run on a cannabis based fuel source called ethanol? Check out more at WWW.PEACEBUD.COM

Mr. President, despite what you think, legalizing hemp would improve the economy, and a lot of other things too. We know you're busy so a digital signature ending the war on drugs would be wise if it is science driving policy. Anything else is an oppression.
Since the president is planning to continue federal oppression of the American people by keeping it illegal to interact with nature, the only salvation hope available is on a state level.

Changing to a hemp-based economy could help solve financial, manufacturing and water crises
By Richard M. Davis,
It is within the Constitutional power of Californians to kick the hemp revolution into high gear and free the plant to do its economic magic on the State.
The regional capacity is enormous. Hemp can be grown as a second crop on 700 square miles of rice fields in
An that is just the rice crop; hemp could entirely replace the state’s cotton crop – 451,000 acres in 2007 for another 1,120,000 tons of hemp. (In 2008, 9.5 million acres of cotton were planted in the
The voters could again do it directly by the initiative process, like Prop 215. The legislature or governor could pass a bill or put a referendum on the ballot. The grand juries or courts could also initiate a due process hearing in the public interest.
The state and global economic crisis will not be fully solved until hemp is restored to its natural place in society.
However, the ‘big banks’ are part of the problem.
