GANJA GRANNY sez HEMP IS THE WAY TO GO! 8/22/11
Ganja Granny sez Please! Clear the Smoke! Everywhere I go, people are talking about marijuana. Talking is not enough! We need to get our STUFF together and “roll a little tighter”…I think…not enough emphasis is placed on the importance of HEMP. A friend in Nevada, Mr.Russ Eppen who is doing an incredible job, educating people about Hemp on Face Book, In a recent conversation, convinced me that if HEMP were legalized….. the rest, like Medical, Recreational and Spiritual use, would ALL fall into place. I have given this much thought and agree with Russell Eppen 100% …As I go about my daily errands, appointments, etc. I meet and speak with people from all walks of life. Wearing the green ribbon has proven to be a magnet for conversation. Most people will ask me what does the green ribbon represent??? This affords me an opportunity to educate them regarding the marvels of cannabis. When talking to a SENIOR over 65 crowd, I realize that older people are not as difficult as one might think….I have discovered, all they need, is a little more,(WEED? Wanted to see if you are paying attention) than how great it is to lite up a joint, whether it be medical or recreational…Instead of immediately talking about marijuana, as most of us know it, I think discussing the benefits of HEMP as Mr. Eppen suggested, would and will give those who sit on the fence and/or are fearful to support legalization….a reason to stand with us. We know the STONERS will always be there! We also know there is a group in their forties, fifties and early sixties who are well versed on the subject of marijuana. and will also stand with us. Ganja Granny believes, they also…… like the stoners are there for us, working to make marijuana a legal commodity. However, people are living longer and there is an older crew out there who would undoubtedly benefit from cannabis whatever their reason may be. MY Mom, who passed away October 25th 2009, 2 months past her 104 birthday actually helped to campaign in Michigan where she lived for medical marijuana. She never drank, smoked anything or even wore makeup… yet she was a progressive woman and way ahead of her time. I know she did it for me…. because she knew it helped me. In retrospect, I think if I had expounded on HEMP, it may have been easier for her to convince more people on why they should vote for Medical Cannabis in Michigan. Of course it was overwhelmingly voted in… but I do regret I had not given much consideration to HEMP and had given my mom a real education… As of this moment,I decided to put a navigation button up for HEMP on this site… called THE WORLD OF HEMP. I would like to begin posting information on Hemp immediately as soon as the button is in place. It would be advantageous to us all, if anyone will help by contributing whatever information related to Hemp as it comes their way. Also would be nice, if anyone who is more than knowledgeable will write a guest blog on the subject…WE can also educate ourselves on Jack Herer’s book THE EMPEROR WEARS NO CLOTHES, first published in 1985…Quotation from this unique cannabis bible………………
If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the Greenhouse Effect and stop deforestation; then there is only one known annually renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time… and that substance is — the same one that did it all before — Cannabis Hemp… Marijuana!
Ganja Granny sez This is the way to go… This is the way to educate those who do not want to know or are not aware, how valuable HEMP really is. While everyone is tokin’ away, think about how effective you will be, when encountering a complete stranger and begin the conversation with a few words on Hemp. This coming week, I am invited to a class act party of socialites and decided to bring a copy of Jack’s book as a house gift, along w/ a bottle of Veuve Clicquot. Ganja Granny is betting on the EMPEROR WEARS NO CLOTHES to be the hit of the party… And talking about hits… Ganja Granny will toke ya later! STAY BLAZED!…… P.S.
