Weed Not Greed is on a national tour for cannabis visibility and education to re-legalize this long-cultivated plant of medicine, fiber, and consciousness. To free innocent individuals incarcerated due to unconstitutional cannabis prohibitions, our group of passionate progressives will span the country visiting major metropolises. We are insisting on the right for anyone to grow, possess, consume, or distribute cannabis for all the gifts it has provided humanity over our thousands-year history together.
“We are making clear that our minds are the sovereign property of each individual, and the freedom to choose states of mind is as constitutional a right as freedom of religion and the pursuit of happiness,” says Weed Not Greed activist David Krane.
The tour’s mission is to raise the issue above the level of a key election topic (of which Gallop polls now show a majority of Americans favoring legalization) to immediate health and economic concern. The number of neurological and muscular diseases that cannabis can treat is shown in the dozens, including many types of cancer. It’s potential as a crop for clothing, food, and building material far exceeds cotton’s and trees’ respectively in terms of carbon footprint, soil management, and speed of production. As a food it is what is called “a completely protein” which means it contains all the essential fatty acids our bodies require from outside sources. It’s physical structure is several times more cellulose by volume than trees, which is the part used for paper, the switch to which is a step in a sustainable relationship with the environment. These and more benefits of the hemp plant are available to the public from many disparate sources, and we pull them all together in open spaces where people can see each other, and push the legalization movement over the tipping point.
To get our movement in gear, we’re asking for donations and looking for corporate sponsorship. Benefactors get to be part of a huge history-making event that will benefit the lives of everyone, now that cannabis will for the first time be legal in America in the Information Age. Through sponsoring this cause, your names will be synonymous with healing the body politic and liberation of the mind.
