  • The Cannabis Conspiracy Theory

We are approaching the Golden Age of cannabis - THC, CBD, and Hemp is more widely accepted than ever before… or is it?

The history of cannabis has been a debated subject for quite some time, and with the government’s history of predatory prohibition towards the cannabis community- it is really no wonder why. Cannabis, or at the very least- hemp, a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for industrial uses, has actually been long ingrained within society. The stigma around cannabis is something every user has faced, but we haven’t always associated reefer with madness.

According to Wikipedia, Hemp is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber approximately 10,000 years ago. There’s evidence to suggest that egyptians used cannabis in many forms, and some people even say Jesus Christ himself used cannabis-infused anointing oils. Hemp can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed. George Washington actually pushed for the growth of hemp and even grew hemp himself! In May of 1765 our founding father noted in his diary about the sowing of hemp seeds each day until mid-April. Then, Washington recounts the harvest in October which he grew 27 bushels of hemp that year! Our first president was literally journaling about weed!

So… what changed?

Somewhere along the way prohibition became passive, and our lawmakers chose to support the money in their pockets. In 1937, with alcohol prohibition being obsolete, the Department of Prohibition quickly had to find something new to focus on. The department began funding propaganda efforts against the “evil weed” which then gained even more funding from a myriad of threatened industries. Soon after, Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act. The statute effectively criminalized marijuana, restricting possession of the drug to certain individuals who paid an excise tax for particular authorized medical and industrial uses.

It wasn’t until 36 years later, in 1973, that Oregon became the first state to decriminalize cannabis.

Since 1973 we have steadily increased the acceptance of both medicinal and recreational uses of the plant, but some people think another round of prohibition could be around the corner… The mass industrialization could threaten businesses, but at this point the industries in question should know to adapt for the new green-wave... Could there be another reason our government doesn’t want to legalize the plant? Could it be possible that the growth of the cannabis industry would threaten more than just the wallets of large corporations? Could this collective awakening be a risk for the survival of mankind? After a recent appearance of “joint-shaped” UFOs in the media, imaginations have run wild… Could it be possible that aliens want our weed?
