Until 1970, paregoric could be purchased in the United States at a pharmacy without a medical prescription, in accordance with federal law. Credit: Wikipedia

It’s not just about Marijuana, anymore…
Oddly enough, I never believed that it was. I was filmed in an interview by a couple in Cincinnati in 2005 who asked me why I was in this ‘movement’. My reply was that it was because I wanted to know the REAL truth about why Marijuana was illegal because it damn sure wasn’t because someone wanted to sell timber and Newspapers. “This is just a very small part of a much bigger agenda”, I told her. I wish I had a copy of that interview!
When the 2014 Farm Bill was passed many businesses started up because of the fact that Hemp was officially allowed to be grown and sold, under specific guidelines of course, but nonetheless grown and sold.
When I first started out writing about Cannabis prohibition I wasn’t too overly concerned about Agenda 21 and the taking of our rights to farm, have and/or use any kind of plant, I thought they were just after the “narcotics”. It didn’t take too long to figure out that this just wasn’t the case. But there were very few people who understood the ramifications of Agenda 21 and it’s far reaching effects out there, and even fewer who wanted to hear about it because everyone was under the impression that the U.N. and our own Government was there to protect us and they “wouldn’t do something like that”. I was a “conspiracy theorist”.
The public is kept pretty much in the dark about what is happening at the U.N., because there is so many branches, divisions, offices, lack of media news coverage and also just the fact that most people work and have kids and do not have the time to sit down and listen to the news everyday, and then research it out on the internet! They are just now beginning to see the effects of what I believe was a “test case” when the U.N., effectively made it illegal to consume Cannabis. A test case for what? Their ability to be able to control and regulate every plant known to man, especially the ones that can be consumed by us for food and medicine, i.e., Cannabis and Hemp, and to watch what our reaction would be. How hard was it going to be to regulate us and contain us? Apparently, it wasn’t too hard.
First, a little background on the U.N. and Agenda 21 because that is where they have Cannabis/Marijuana (and the rest of our food and medicinal plants) wrapped up:
The “League of Nations“, founded in 1920, was the start of what would become the “United Nations” in 1941. The U.N. is responsible for Agenda 21 (Agenda 2030). The U.N. is also responsible for the UNODC (U.N. Office of Drug Control), and the DEA is an extension of that, used to enforce drug regulation and drug law in the U.S.
Roosevelt suggested the name (United Nations) as an alternative to “Associated Powers”
The U.N. was set up as a guise and sold to the people as a way …
…to defend life, liberty, independence and religious freedom, and to preserve human rights and justice in their own lands as well as in other lands.
The United States is a signatory country to Agenda 21, but because Agenda 21 is a legally non-binding statement of intent and not a treaty, the United States Senate did not hold a formal debate or vote on it. It is therefore not considered to be law under Article Six of the United States Constitution. President George H. W. Bush was one of the 178 heads of government who signed the final text of the agreement at the Earth Summit in 1992.
Are we fighting a war that we just cannot win?
March 19, 1991: Plant Breeders’ Rights Extended in Newly Revised UPOV Convention
Revisions to the International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants strengthen the intellectual property rights of seed developers. The convention was created in 1961 and is one of several international conventions and treaties that operate under the umbrella of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The convention’s governing body is the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV). The newly revised UPOV agreement extends the term of plant breeders’ intellectual property protections for new varieties from 15 years to 20 years. It also prohibits farmers from saving seeds, though there is an optional clause that allows member countries to exempt farmers from this restriction under certain conditions. For example, the clause says the restrictions can be waived if member countries implement other mechanisms that provide equivalent protections for the “legitimate interests of the breeder.”
The top 10 seed companies account for $14,785 million – or two-thirds (67%) of the global proprietary seed market. The world’s largest seed company, Monsanto, accounts for almost one-quarter (23%) of the global proprietary seed market. The top 3 companies (Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta) together account for $10,282 million, or 47% of the worldwide proprietary seed market.
Obviously it is not just about Cannabis, although that is the focus of the drug war because of its illegality causing so many hundreds of thousands or more innocent people to be hurt, imprisoned, even killed and executed over a “treaty” that the U.S. and other signatories used to start the biggest control scheme ever brought down on mainstream humanity, as a whole. The war over the right to plants.
There is an interesting article about the “top ten” used to be legal drugs on a site called TOPTENZ. But that is only the beginning of a long list of plants which have been controlled since the beginning of the 20th Century and especially after 1970. Thank you, President Nixon! The DEA is the enforcement agency for the UNODC.
The Drug Enforcement Administration was created by President Richard Nixon through an Executive Order in July 1973 in order to establish a single unified command to combat “an all-out global war on the drug menace.”
RELATED: “Rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to purposes and principles of the United Nations.”
In 1970 the Controlled Substances Act served as the national implementing legislation for the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs which was/is an international U.N. treaty to prohibit production and supply of narcotic drugs and directs that they cannot be sold or used except under certain conditions as set forth by the U.N. for medical treatment .
Through this link CBD’s have officially been placed into Schedule I of the CSA, essentially meaning that as it stands right now, effective January 13, 2017, it is illegal to sell any CBD product as a cosmetic or health care product of any kind. Final Rule : Establishment of a New Drug Code for Marihuana Extract (December 14, 2016)
There will be a battle over this because the people who have started businesses based on the 2014 Farm Bill were under the impression that they were a legal business. And as far as I am concerned the DEA, up until this point let them believe that they were. The “Hoban Law Group”, a leading Law Firm in the industry of Cannabis has already promised to debate this in Court.
Hoban surmises, “The feeling is that this is an action beyond the DEA’s authority and we believe this is unlawful and we are taking a course of action for our clients. This Final Rule serves to threaten hundreds, if not thousands, of growing businesses, with massive economic and industry expansion opportunities, all of which conduct lawful business in reliance upon the Federal Government also acting pursuant to law, and as ordered by the Ninth Circuit in 2003 and 2004. We will see the Federal Government in court.”
Meanwhile, the DEA imposes a new rule and the CBD Manufacturers and Sales will have to fight it out in court while the little people watch and wait and are scared to open the door to police because they have CBD products in the house. They could be charged with a crime and sent thru Hell in a handbasket. But this feeds the system too. Through the police, jails, courts and lawyers and the medical system, which will feed everyone else from the construction people who will build the jails, hospitals and offices though to the sanitation workers who pick up their garbage and other refuse. The flow of commerce and paper money, the “Law of Commerce”. In fact, The Harrison Narcotics Tax Act of 1914 was the U.S. attempt to control and regulate narcotics through taxation and the Law of Commerce, in accordance with the 1912 Convention. The Hague International Opium Convention in 1912 was the beginning to the U.N. control of “drugs” – and plants.
Congress has often used the Commerce Clause to justify exercising legislative power over the activities of states and their citizens
Who is ultimately responsible for the loss of our Human Rights? Are we not all guilty because it has happened on our own watch, and our parents, and grandparents watch, and we just weren’t paying enough attention? My Father was an avid watcher of the nightly news, on all two stations. I was the remote control that he used to switch back and forth between them so that he could catch all of it, because he knew, even in the 1960’s that the media was only telling you what they wanted us to hear.
What could we have done differently? Our Parents and Grandparents spent most of their lives fighting in WWI and WWII. By the time they made it home from Iwo Jima they were not able to fight a war against their own government over plants and medicines. They did not even realize that they needed to!
What can we do in the future, or FOR the future? For a start, the power of REPEAL should be utilized, all the way back to the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs in 1961, if not before. Timothy Leary was successful in getting the 1937 Tax Act on Cannabis Repealed. However, this did not happen until 1969 and by early 1970’s the CSA was born.
The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) is the statute establishing federal U.S. drug policy under which the manufacture, importation, possession, use and distribution of certain substances is regulated. It was passed by the 91st United States Congress as Title II of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 and signed into law by President Richard Nixon. The Act also served as the national implementing legislation for the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. The legislation created five Schedules (classifications), with varying qualifications for a substance to be included in each. Two federal agencies, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Food and Drug Administration, determine which substances are added to or removed from the various schedules…
During the last decade, opposition to Agenda 21 has increased within the United States at the local, state, and federal levels. The Republican National Committee has adopted a resolution opposing Agenda 21, and the Republican Party platform stated that “We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty.”
If things are to change around the world and in the U.S. on a peaceful basis, everyone is going to have to pay attention and get political! I really do not know how to tell everyone to begin, especially those who work two jobs and still can’t afford a place to live for their families. At the same time they are slaving to provide, they are going to have to pay attention and get political to change things. (?) There is only 24 hours in a day, and that is what the U.N. is banking on. That we just do not have enough time to figure the plan out and do anything about it, because we are all too tired from just trying to survive! In a video by the late great Attorney Gatewood Galbraith (KY), he said; “if you don’t get political, it will end up in the streets, and nobody wants to go there”…
The only other choice is just to ignore the “Law” around you and live as you can…until you get caught. Then you end up property of the “correctional institute” of THEIR choice.
When chocolate was first discovered in the New World, the almighty Roman Catholic Church banned it as an addictive, mind- altering, sexually-stimulating drug. Well, it is. Now it is eaten by billions of people, even nuns and virgins, without people going rabid sexually.
If George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were alive today, they would both be facing a Mandatory Minimum Sentence of 5-40 years in Federal Prison for growing more than 100 Cannabis plants at their homes; Ben Franklin would be in prison simply because he was an opium addict, as would most of our Founding Fathers of America who used opium and hemp, had home alcohol stills, and illegally smuggled rum and moonshine to avoid taxes.
It would not stretch matters to say that the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 (P.L. 59-384, 34 Stat. 768), also known as the Wiley Act, stands as the most consequential regulatory statute in the history of the United States. The act not only gave unprecedented new regulatory powers to the federal government, it also empowered a bureau that evolved into today’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The legacy of the 1906 act includes federal regulatory authority over one-quarter of gross domestic product, and includes market gatekeeping power over human and animal drugs, foods and preservatives, medical devices, biologics and vaccines.
