Welcome to joe the stoner's blog ~ An American Pothead from Boulder, CO


....as an American Pothead it is my right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - My life as a stoner, the liberty to enjoy my life in this fashion, and the pursuit of happiness to enjoy smoking without having the fear of Federal Agents busting the door down just for smoking a bud or having a few plants for personal, recreational, medicinal or pleasurable use.....

GREEN ENERGY: Marijuana can cure cancer AND fuel our cars?

So, not only does marijuana have health benefits - it can even cure cancer, AND it can be a source of renewable energy and release America from foreign oil dependence, virtually overnight? And it has many other benefits to the construction industry, paper industry, alternative fuel industry, and so many other industries?

Seems like our focus on making marijuana illegal for it's effect on smoker's is stopping us from becoming energy independent, stops people from curing cancer, and has at least a dozen benefits that we are denied. All because it can get you high....

Legalizing marijuana seems like the smartest thing to do, letting each State and its' voters decide on it's legalization, regulation and taxation.

The benefits to society from such a plant are so incredible, it's no wonder there is so much propaganda against it. Imagine that.... something that can save lives, keep our cars going, cure cancer, provide pain relief, and have recreational non-addictive properties is against the law? How can this happen? How can something so wonderful, be so illegal? The answer is simple. How many industries would crumble if marijuana was legalized?

1) The pharmaceutical companies cannot obtain a patent on a plant, therefore it is not profitable to legalize something that Americans can grow in their home gardens that can cure more things than any drug they ever came up with.

2) Both domestic and foreign oil industry a/k/a "BIG OIL" highly opposes legalizing marijuana because if America made cars that ran on "hemp fuel" it would put them out of business.

3) Paper Mills, Logging Companies, and related industries would of course see quite a drop in sales if word got out that you can make paper out of hemp. It's cleaner, cheaper and saves our natural forests and planet from deforestation.

4) The Mexican Drug Cartels don't want Congress, the President or any States to Legalize Marijuana. Making it illegal is what is making them billionaires. They have already bought many politicians and promote keeping it illegal. If it were legal, they would be out of business.

5) Alcohol companies stand to lose a big chunk of business if marijuana were legalized. Alcohol Clinics and/or Rehabilitation Centers would also see a decline in business. Alcohol related deaths caused by drunk driving would also decrease considerably hurting lawyers, insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, AA's, and the list goes on and on....

6) Politicians want to keep it illegal because it's just one more thing they can oppose, debate and argue about, and deny to the American Public. (all while their campaigns are funded by the very industries that oppose legalizing the miracle plant)

America: Isn't it time to legalize marijuana?
