Dear Potential Supporter of California Cannabis Hemp and Health Initiative - CCHHI:
I am Richard M. Davis, founder and curator of the U.S.A. Hemp Museum, soon to be opened in downtown Los Angeles, CA featuring my over 3,000 hemp items and artifacts I've collected over the last 40 plus years as a hemp activist, farmer, consumer and historian.
The year 2012 is the year for relegalizing Cannabis hemp and
marijuana in California. To this end we are offering the California
Cannabis Hemp and Health Initiative (CCHHI) to the people of our State. In California
we have the right to change the law or create law by initiative, bypassing the
government as was done with medical marijuana in 1996. The role of the government is to protect
liberty not control and harass the people over the historical and productive
cannabis sativa plant – common name hemp.
We believe the people of California are ready to end the prohibition
of industrial and recreational hemp for adults.
Relegalizing Cannabis will provide jobs, save family farms, help reverse
global warming, provide biomass fuels (even synthetic gasoline), provide high
protein foods, provide paper to protect our forests, provide fiber to replace
the polluting cotton crop, provide herbal safe medicine (known since 1974 to
kill cancer cells), provide building materials, plastics, paints and varnishes,
and stress reducing relaxation. As a
carbon source, hemp can do anything fossil fuels (oil, coal, natural gas) can
do. Hemp’s potential for California could be
hundreds of billions of dollars (paper for example produces $850 billion, and
hemp could and should do this job.) The
reward on this initiative investment is beyond belief. Hemp can produce an estimated 50,000 viable
Inalienable rights are those given by the Creator to
individual citizens as stated in the Declaration of Independence. Cannabis was also given to the people by the
Creator, not to the government. Hemp
hero Dr. David Bearman has states: “Do we really need the government to protect
us from the plants that grow in our garden.” Hemp hero Dr. Lester Grinspoon has
said that not until everyone can legally obtain cannabis will patients be
guaranteed access to their medicine. Dr.
William Courtney, Cannabis expert, stated: “…the National Cancer Institute has
acknowledged that there are direct antitumor (anticancer) effects (from
Cannabis).” He feels the fresh leaves and flowers eaten in quantity do the most
to promote health. Food, medicine,
liberty, seeds, privacy, happiness and safety belong to the people.
We need your help to get CCHHI on the ballot. We need to gather 805,000 signatures in the
next four months. The quickest way to do
this is to ay petitioners. At one dollar
per signature, we think that one million dollars will enable us to do
this. Any part or all of this million
you can give will help the people of California
to step ahead in Cannabis research in the U.S. Many other developed countries are already
growing hemp, including Canada,
all of Europe, China, Russia, Australia, etc.
Many of you have proved you know how to develop an idea and
to make it profitable. We would love your
direct involvement. We want to use your
name, and your activism, as well as your financial help. Fifteen years ago, Cannabis production was
broken by initiative Prop. 215. This
proves we can do this without the federal government, which had to respect the
right of the people to invoke medical marijuana as a right, out of thin
air. Specifically, CCHHI invokes the
Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution sot there is no mistake
where the power of the people to act comes from. Help us and your grandchildren will thank
Hemp hero Jack Herer, father of CCHHI passed away in
2010. We like to call this initiative
the Jack Herer Hemp Initiative. His vision
for a world in hemp has started a revolution around the world to develop
hemp. The U.S. farmer is being left behind in
the development of hemp, a crop I call the Trillion Dollar Crop. Jack Herer from the start knew that for
justice to be served non-violent offenders needed to be released and records
whipped clean for hemp offenses.
Recently, Jack’s assertion that farming six percent of the U.S. could fuel
our country was confirmed by research of five Swedish scientists. This initiative gives the farmer the right to
grow hemp. This is taking back the
freedom and liberty enjoyed by our founders.
For my part, I plan to open to the public the U.S.A.HempMuseum of which I am
curator and owner, so we can clearly see the economic, medicinal, nutritional
potential of hemp. I have supported this
initiative in the past and support it even more today. We need the jobs and energy that hemp farming
will bring to California. Beyond getting on the ballot is the campaign
to November, 2012, which will demand even more resources. The reward on this initiative investment is
beyond belief. The hemp resource can
span 50,000 viable products.
For those of you with money, challenge your friends to match
your generosity. For those with no
money, spread the word. One purpose of
the Jack Herer Hemp Initiative is to end Cannabis hemp prohibition. The legislative analyst has estimated that
the savings from releasing non-violent offenders will be in the “tens of
millions of dollars’ annually. Sign the
initiative petition, collect signatures from work or home, and donate to the
liberation of a plant. With you we can
make history, again.
