      Ganga is the tree of life…and part of multiple religions. This country is Freedom of Religion right? Just Curious…what does the Bill of Rights say about the government committing treason?

      I’m not sure how old Willie is these days, but he seems very clear and mentally alert in this video.

      The truth about a harmless plant. What a mess we men have made with these unreasonable laws, rules and regulations concerning cannabis. Here’s a little testimony of H.J. Anslinger during the first ongressional hearing on “The Taxation of Marihuana” in 1937. After lengthy discourse connecting cannabis with half a dozen homicides, congressman Senator Davis ask Anslinger “How many cigaretttes does it take to reach this vicious mental attitude towards your neighbo?” Anslingers reply “I believe in some cases one cigarette might develop a homicidal mania, probably to kill his brother. It depends on the physical characteristics of this individual. Every individual reacts differently to the drug. it stimulates some and others it depresses. It is impossible to say just what the action of the drug ill be on a given individual, or the amount. Probably some people cold smoke five before it would take effect, but all the experts agree that the continued use leads to insanity. There are many cases of insanity” Welcome to mankinds one large step towards prohibition of cannabis and one giant leap forward for America and the worlds prison systems. classically 75 years before in was in our pharmaceutica and thousands of years before that it was used through out the world as medicine and recreationally. I wonder what it was that made it all of a sudden oh so scary? Ill answer that for you, mans fear of something unknown and dislike of his neighbors ways. What a great shame on humanity’s name for all the great tribulation caused by a plant that has never brought harm upon anyone.

      Why does this forum post these types of posts?

      “Click here” and nothing happens, but even still, I know it’s just going to be another link to the same topic. So please tell me why NORML posts these on this forum?.

      Seriously, I have much more respect for Mr. Nelson than I do for most members of our Federal Govt. !!! He is, like myself, living proof that someone can consume cannabis for many many years with little or no ill effects!
