greenbuddha Posted January 9, 2011 Report Share Posted January 9, 2011 (edited) Tried to get the cartoon to download without any luck. Might have to go to the the NORML homepage to see it. Well worth the look see though! <H3>« Weed The People: Cannabis and The Constitution<H3>Marijuana Prohibition Era Cartoon Par Excellence: Hemp’s Notorious Cousin January 8th, 2011 By: Allen St. Pierre, NORML Executive Director Share this Article Thanks to the GlobalMana Foundation and the design group Northshorecartoon for publishing a very creative, funny and spot-on political commentary in the form of a short cartoon focused on the costly absurdity of the U.S. government banning the domestic production of industrial hemp. Most all other countries (Canada, France, Great Britain, China, Switzerland, etc…) do not allow the lawful use of cannabis for non-medical purposes, yet, they allow for the production of one of the most utilitarian and environmentally-friendly row crops that humans have been cultivating and prospering from for thousands of years. Regardless of whatever happens in state and federal governments with ‘marijuana’ laws in future regarding medical access, decriminalization or legalization, the US government must stop trying to enforce a complete and total blanket prohibition on all forms and uses of the amazing cannabis plant—notably, like other major countries have done regarding industrial hemp.
