Just a friendly reminder from “The Flintstones” that laws do change. Fred and Barney, if being politically correct would remind us that their ancestors had used hemp cannabis freely since prehistory for food, fuel, fiber and medicines. As we can see by this commercial, laws will change again. Get active today and join Northern Wisconsin NORML or your local organization and find out how you can make a difference and help reform marijuana laws. Be the change you want to see in the world! If not you, who? If not now, when?
During the 2010 election year, I ran for Wisconsin State Assembly in District 41 on primarily on the platform of legalizing Industrial Hemp, Medical Marijuana and Recreational Cannabis. During the campaign, the district only held two “candidate forums”. Of the two, one forum was specifically on the topics of alcohol, nicotine and obesity, primarily focusing on the health costs to tax payers and how tax revenue is NOT spent on prevention or education. The point of the story is that legalizing marijuana will allow a SAFER choice than alcohol and nicotine. Along with Industrial Hemp utilizing the seed and fiber for food and consumer products rather than corn, we could provide healthier products with additional help by hemp in the environment.
This commercial to me illustrates that throughout time, culture and society changes, along with changes in laws that govern and protect us. Right now I truly feel that in these trying times that economic recovery, creating jobs, providing alternative energy solutions and improved public saftey are critical. Legalizing marijuana will assist in these areas and provide funding for others. Right now it is time for marijuana laws to change. Right now it is time to end marijuana prohibition.
