Re: “Battle Royale Starts to Erupt Among California's Legalization Factions

Vote for the CCHI ballot initiative only! The others only ensconse the illegality of pot gardens (only 6 plants? Absurd!) into law permanently.

Re: “2012 Legalization Effort Starts

China has a long recorded history of Hemp usage, including paper making 4000-6000 years ago, and recently discovered in China, 2 lbs of smokable Hemp flowers in 2700 year old tomb! Hemp and pot farming is as Human as Apple Pie, and probably less dangerous!
Growing hemp or tobaco should share legal status (including agricultural, commercial and personal), any ballot measure should permit home growing for personal consumption individuals gardening (legaly) 99 Hemp plants for consuming the flowers. and 99 tobaco plants for personal smoking the leaf. Regulation of Hemp sales? Similarly taxed or regulated as liquor or tobaco products, limited to 10% higher than the highest imposed sales tax (highest of the liquor or tobaco tax rates, plus ten percent of that rate). Sales should conform to the existing liquor/tobaco limits on commercial sales, such as regulations governing locations for the sale of wine and spirits and criminal penalties established equivalent to those imposed for liquor or tobaco sales to minors or untaxed sales of booze or butts!

Thomas Jefferson (under diplomatic immunity) smuggled Hemp seed from China for use by American Hemp farmers! Jefferson surely wanted American farming to have the xlnt fibre producing (and Chinese national treasure) Hemp strains developed over the mileau there, Hemp seed was forbidden to export from China under penalty of death! What a Patriot!

America is the largest importer of Hemp products. France and Canada currently grow very low THC Hemp crop varieties ( used for tobaco cigarett rolling papers and dollar bills(24%), kraft/specialty papers, Canvas, and many other goods that are made of Hemp stems, bast and fibre, and Hemp is made into foods and cosmetics that are made from the seed meal and oil). But the Hemp varieties historically grown for fibre or seed crops did not have un-smokable flowers, and have had apparently had smokeable flowers since at least 2700 years ago! I observed that Thai strains are very tall and grown primarily for fibre there, yet are very smokeable (and uniquely Thai hemp is purely hemaphroditic).

Zero THC Hemp is only important to an out of control and misguided Dope War like we have in America (with DEA raids on Medical pot users in California, and massive CIA drug smuggling commonly accepted facts), insane laws that require American farmers to have 0% THC in Hemp crops, and an anti pot/drug policy that imposes upon other countries the un-necessary, arbitrary zero THC requirements for Hemp crops (it's just a flower people), as a manditory component in the prohibition of (some) drug(s) treaty conditions that we press upon our trading partners around the world! Here at home we have not affected adult or teen pot smoking by any measure, nor have we stopped black market "Dope" pot growers and suppliers. American Hemp prohibition has only sucessfully prevented all of America's legitimate farmers from growing ANY Hemp crops for Hemp's unequalled fibre or seed production, they've grown none at all, for over 80 years now*!

Federal Pot eradication program is a joke! 90% of the Pot plants eradicated in America (weed killing paid for with federal dollars and at great taxpayer expense), are ruderalis Hemp plants, varieties formerly grown for fibre and seed that escaped long ago. We are killing what is known as "Ditch Weed" Hemp, that has no inebriating properties whatsoever! Smoke ditch weed for headache inducement only, but you might try rubbing young flowers on skin rashes historically used in China and elsewhere to treat the symptoms of various persistent herpies like skin problems! Eat the Hemp seed greul (and consume the Hemp seed oils) contained in even the ruderalis Hemp seed for the most complete source of omegas (all of them), in just the right proportions for human health! Try Nutiva for organic hemp seed food products and nutritional information.

We have special receptors for cannabinoids, this is a wonderful plant to grow, please set it free. Peace.

(*No legal hemp crops grown, With the exception of WW2 when the USDA pot growing program called "Hemp for Victory" interupted our stupid little war on "Pot", and a legal 5 acre, government sponsored, pot farm at the U of Missisippi!)

Re: “End Prohibition; Vote Yes on Prop 19

It is fantasy to believe that any modern society can exist without at least one inebriant commonly used by adults.
Shouldn't it be the parents family and friends who decide the right and wrong behavior, what is safe and what is adult, proper, immodest, or degenerate? And we teach this by example to our kids?
Pot is the LEAST of California's problems (for health, happiness, reason, children, crime or anything), so why is the NANNY state so viciously enforcing morality laws upon otherwise law abiding taxpayers for Hemp flower gardening, use or sale? Can California taxpayers afford this unconstitutional punishment of "imoral behavior"? What with overpriced and overcrowded prisons, drug task forces with paramilitary swat police helicopters, jails and overflowing courts, all costs helping to break state county and municipal budgets (and that we for pay so dearly, and who should serve society by catching, trying, and imprisoning murderers, rapists, polluters, poachers and thieves).
Is it a wise policy that so monetarily and morally bankrupts our government, without any possible "victory" without end?
