California Cannabis Hemp & Health Initiative 2012 Richard M. Davis

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 products.

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 you.

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. Hemp Museum 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.

Thank you,

Richard. M. Davis
