Cannabis should be grown freely to promote the change within the humanr ace necessary to cohabitively live on the earth.

The cannabis sativa and indica flowers have never killed a single person in over 10,000 years of human history. The desired long term effect of growing the cannabis plant would be the intention that our children may grow more plants than children in previous generations. The key is to not forbid it to our kids, the key is not to mass market it to our kids, prohibition only succeeds in one thing; it makes people want it more than they actually need it. The key is to educate them about the plant about how to grow it many years before they realize they can smoke it. Who knows , just being taught to have to grow and care for something as especially unique as the cannabis flower from an early age may teach the next generation the discipline to use it in moderation because it won’t be such a taboo, it should be around just as common as any other flower. Legalising it will teach the kids the big thing is to smoke it, just growing the plants will show the big thing is everything it can be used for.
We are capable of both great creation and great destruction, there is no way in telling which way we will go because it depends on the minds of over 7 billion people as a whole! When the people lead the leaders will follow, there is no need for war over this, and there is no need for discussion. It is a simple true or false question. Are we as individuals ready to make the changes we need to, to ensure that our children and grandchildren will not be left with an even bigger mess to clean up?

    Mar 30 2012: growing plants should be a normal thing but our ignorance as the number one predator on the palnet has causes a change in teh way we look at the world. the resources will run out. water will drop by 74% from 1950-2050, aswell as the human impact on this world is expected to quadruple. the effects on teh children are hard to study because currently hemp is still illegal even tho governments still grow it. the government plans to mass market marajuana to your kids which is far more dangerous than parents teaching their kids about it themselves.
