Posts Tagged ‘Hemp’

Hey everybody I am here to fully endorse the use of hemp wick when medicating with your bong or pipe or just about anything you are smoking. It is a healthy alternative to a butane lighter and burns extremely clean being that it is nothing but organic hemp and bees wax.

Now I just happened to have this little spice jar that used to have diced onions in it. I tend to keep anything made of glass because it always comes in useful some time in the future. In this case it had some little holes in the top that worked perfect for dispensing the hemp cord as is uncoils inside. As it burns it feeds more out and when you’re done its got a black twist on lid that disguises it and keeps it clean and looking mighty sophisticated.

This is the best addition to my smoking devices in a long time. It burns so clean and enhances the taste as well as burning hotter than a regular lighter allowing you to take larger, healthier hits.

So check out my new Hemp wick and table top dispenser and consider adding one to your coffee table. Cheers.

Enjoy and keep blowing that smoke proud,

Check this out, I pulled this from an article on NORML’s website. The Original Ariticle is HERE:

September 7, 2006 – Washington, DC, USA

Washington, DC: More than 98 percent of all of the marijuana plants seized by law enforcement in the United States is feral hemp not cultivated cannabis, according to newly released data by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program and the Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics.

According to the data, available online at:http://www.albany.edu/sourcebook/pdf/t4382005.pdf, of the estimated 223 million marijuana plants destroyed by law enforcement in 2005, approximately 219 million were classified as “ditchweed,” a term the agency uses to define “wild, scattered marijuana plants [with] no evidence of planting, fertilizing, or tending.” Unlike cultivated marijuana, feral hemp contains virtually no detectable levels of THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis, and does not contribute to the black market marijuana trade.

So if 98% of the plants they have been burning are wild hemp, left over from the days when the cultivation of hemp was legal and encouraged, Why the hell are they getting paid so much? Their job isn’t fighting drug cartels, their job isn’t fighting drug dealers, 98% of their job is acting as gardeners for a government that feels some “weeding”, pardon the pun, needs to be done on their land. This is a blatant waste of tax payer’s money fighting a plant that anywhere else in the western world would be cherished as a blessing and a lucrative resource. Even if you do not support the legalization of Marijuana, you can not deny the fact that Industrial Hemp is an enormous economic stimulus as well as a stepping stone to sustainability. The DEA is acting on behalf of the government to make sure that the US stays a capitalist consumer nation by destroying all hopes for a sustainable economy. They don’t want you growing your own medicine, and they sure don’t want to let a weed grow that could become the largest natural resource for half of the industries in North America. Textiles, plastics, petroleum products can all be replaced by introducing industrial hemp In to the United States and in doing so would open millions of jobs for Americans to make the switch to a “Green” (I feel like an episode of Scooby Doo) Nation. It just makes sense and there are countless experts to back up this claim. There is no reason industrial hemp should have ever been grouped with marijuana and its time they fix this mistake and help fix our economy.
