Regarding Cannibus, (Marijuana), the most widely known and controversial entheogenic, Steve states:
Cannibus is finally making its way back into the medical field as a valid medicine...for relief of pain, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, and loss of appetite for chemotherapy and AIDS patients. Cannibis has recently been shown to fight several types of cancer, including skin, lung, brain, and prostrate cancer...We will just have to wait a see what the future of medical cannabis holds."
In history, its use was prolific. For example, the website Drug Warrant states:
The marijuana (hemp) plant, of course, has an incredible number of uses. The earliest known woven fabric was apparently of hemp, and over the centuries the plant was used for food, incense, cloth, rope, and much more. This adds to some of the confusion over its introduction in the United States, as the plant was well known from the early 1600"-s, but did not reach public awareness as a recreational drug until the early 1900"-s.
So why has it been made illegal?
"Mm, hemp--food, medicine incense, cloth, rope." And what of the nylon industry? Do you think that they like the idea of rope and other goods being made of hemp? What of the pharmaceutical industry? How could Monsanto compete with a free-growing weed?
Hemp was made illegal back during the days of President Herbert Hoover. Indeed, Hoover's secretary of the treasurer was Dupont's chief financial backer, Andrew Mellon, who became the Secretary of the Treasury. He then appointed his nephew, Harry J. Anslinger, to a position in the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.
Sounds like corporations were at the helm even back in those days!
Anslinger ultimately whipped up a scare campaign about hemp, which referred to hemp as marijuana so that people would begin to associate the whole plant with drug use only. At the "high" point of this campaign, the propaganda films Reefer Madness, Marijuana: Weed With Roots in Hell, and Marijuana: Assassin of our Youth were made.
And how are we different from the state control of television by the Soviets in the old days? The question was whether we had state control of television or corporate control. We had and have the latter. Indeed, even government, when one really looks at it, is subservient to the Corporation.
Hemp's leaves have been shown to relieve various ailments according to Rudd. Some of these include inflammation, convulsions, nausea and it tends to inhibit cancer cells (Dragibus, Summer 2012).
Wow! How many businesses would that challenge? Do you think the government/corporate system really has your health at heart?
Be careful though. The private prison industry would just love to have you as its guest. They'd have it made by employing you with no wages (well, you'd get room and board) and no benefits (well I imagine they would give you a doctor if they deemed you were sick). All-in-all it would be a win-lose situation benefiting the corporation.
When do we say "no more?" This corporate rule is not something that just manifested in our world. It has been for several centuries. It's an old, well established pattern. But, it's killing us. Thus we need to be the change the world needs. Questioning our culture and the lies it has told is the first step. Thus it is no sense in being Democrat or Republican, for they are woven with the same thread and controlled by the same puppeteers. It is time to transcend the pattern being woven while also changing the thread that we weave with. We can do this. But, it's going to be a challenge, for we must rise above our conditioning to see the pattern before we can change it. It's going to be hard going, for we are talking about unraveling several centuries of conditioning.
As stated earlier, this is the DEEP meaning of the virgin birth.
That's to say, we need to question several centuries of indoctrination to a theory of the universe that is, simply, a lie. We need an altered state of consciousness if we are to escape our systematic brainwashing to become the pawns of capitalist kings. No wonder these kingpins--and the governments, schools, hospitals, churches, and military they control--condemn the most basic and traditional route to altered consciousness!
