I have read in the Bible that “God uses the coolest things to pin down the winds… Wait… what?… My voice program heard me wrong. What I meant was, ” God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise.” I Cor 1:27
I believe it’s a foolish thing to have had so much misunderstanding surrounding Cannabis in this century. The industrial hemp strain of cannabis has been used for thousands of years for its fibers, food, medicine and its oil in very beneficial ways. The strain known as marijuana has also been used for centuries for other reasons which I am not talking about here.
The controversy didn’t start until the 1900’s right here in America.
- When textile companies made discoveries to manufacture plastic products,
- chemical companies developed herbicides & pesticides,
- pharmaceutical companies realized hemp provided natural medicines…they all collaborated a scheme to abolish the plant based upon Marijuana’s psychotropic effects.
They realized that industrial hemp provided naturally what each wanted to market – their manufactured counterparts…soooo…An issue was made of the recreational use of marijuana with no distinction between hemp and marijuana and convinced our leaders of that era that both were evil & started the “Reefer Madness” campaign.
The fact that it is difficult to tell the difference between the plants, both were banned! Even though hemp helped bring this country to victory in WWII it was suddenly deemed dangerous. And now today, the marijuana strain is gaining recognition as a beneficial product even though there are still many unsubstantiated fears surrounding it’s use.
While I don’t believe that God made a mistake putting those plants on this earth, I do believe people have been made to believe that it was a mistake. I think it’s time we rectified this confusion and started benefiting from these so called “foolish things” and started getting wise about the deception. So, doesn’t it make more sense to reform the laws?
