Cannabis Rising; A tale of truth and healing

History of Marijuana in 4 Minutes and 20 Seconds


"Throughout Western Europe hemp was famed for its healing properties.

Many considered the properties of hemp seed magical.

Farmers fed hemp to livestock to encourage good health." - Will Bolden

1763 to 1769

It is against the law in Virginia to refuse to grow hemp.

late 1700's

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are growing hemp.


Benjamin Franklin owns one of the first hemp paper mills in America.

late 1800s Cannabis indica is used in treating addiction.

Opiate, chloral hydrate, and alcohol addicts are successfully treated with potent cannabis extracts.


War of 1812

Napoleon Bonaparte attempts to de-rig the English Navy by invading Russia to cut off the export of hemp to England.

Hemp sails and rigging have to replaced every two years.

Hemp sails and rigging cost five times the wood in a newly commissioned ship!

90% of all ships' sails and rope are made from hemp for thousands of years.

The word 'canvas' is Dutch for cannabis.

80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction of the cotton gin.

The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross's flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America were made from hemp.

Schoolbooks are made from hemp or flax.

Rembrants, Gainsboroughs, Van Goghs as well as most early canvas paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.

Hemp is the largest cash crop until the cotton takes over in 1803.

1850 Kentucky produces 40,000 tons.

1908 The first Model-T built by Henry Ford runs on hemp oil gasoline and the body parts are constructed from hemp.

Henry Ford creates hemp plastic panels that have an impact strength 10 times stronger than steel.

Henry Ford grows his own hemp.

1916 United States Department of Agriculture Bulletin #404 concluded that hemp produces 4 times as much pulp with at least 4 to 7 times less pollution than wood pulp.

Hemp is the first cash crop in America to exceed a billion dollars in value in a year.



William Randolf Hearst and Harry Jacob Anslinger

“America’s First Drug Czar” Waged War
Against Billie Holiday and Other Jazz Legends


"Anslinger was not trained in medicine or psychiatry yet he often used clinical descriptions of bizarre behavior that he attributed to the use of drugs." - John J. Coleman

1917 to 1928 Harry Jacob Anslinger, widely credited for shaping international drug policies, works for various military and police organizations.

Andrew William Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury for Herbert Hoover and the primary DuPont investor, appoints his nephew-in-law, Harry Jacob Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

The Federal Bureau of Narcotics, like the Bureau of Prohibition, is under the auspices of the Treasury Department as the undeclared trade of alcohol and drugs is considered a loss of revenue.



marihuanareefer madness

Mary Jane's Last Dance



"In strict medical terms, marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume.

Cannabis, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man." - DEA Admin Law Judge Francis L. Young


late 1920s early 1930s

Anslinger shifts focus.

Although Anslinger did not consider cannabis a serious threat to American society he was willing to help the oligarchs attempt to replace natural substances with a petrochemical monopoly.

DuPont petrochemical interests and Hearst lumber interests create the highly sensational media blitz of 'yellow journalism' focusing on an anti-marijuana campaign to eliminate hemp as an industrial competitor.

Hearst newspapers run stories claiming "marihuana", an addictive narcotic causes shocking acts of violence, incurable insanity and destroys morality.

White women would be seduced by "jazz and darkies" to commit murder.

Few people, at the time, realized that the deadly menace they had been reading about on William Randolph Hearst's front pages was in fact hemp.

The American Medical Association understood cannabis as a MEDICINE found in numerous healing concoctions sold for over a hundred years.





early 1930s Members of the League of Nations began implemented restrictions on cannabis.

'Reefer Madness' (1936), 'Marihuana: Assassin of Youth' (1935) and 'Marihuana: The Devil's Weed' (1936) are propaganda movies.

This iss industrial propaganda designed to replace:

hemp fiber for paper with tree fiber;

hemp fiber for clothing with cotton fiber;

hemp fiber for rigging with nylon;

natural healing medicines with manufactured petrochemicals.

1936 DuPont patents the processes to make plastic and plastic fibers from oil and coal.

These process' are taken from the Germans as war reparations.

DuPont Annual Report urges stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division.

Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon™, rayon™, Dacron®, PVC ™, could be made from oil.

Natural hemp agricultural industrialization would have ruined over 80% of DuPont business.

William Randolph Hearst and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands.

The Hearst Company supplied most wood pulp paper products.


1837 fiasco

Marihuana Tax Act of 1937

US Government Is Profiting From Keeping Cannabis Illegal

"We cannot understand yet, Mr. Chairman, why this bill should have been prepared in secret for two years without any intimation, even to the profession, that it was being prepared." - Dr. James Woodward

"58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products." - Sherwin-Williams testimony about the previous year

August 2, 1937 The Constitution did not provide sufficient authority to regulate a substance grown and distributed throughout the states.

Congress settled on a "tax" act because the Constitution provided Congress the unlimited power to levy and collect taxes.

The bill that outlawed hemp was brought directly to the House Ways and Means Committee.

Chairman of the Ways and Means, Robert Doughton a DuPont stockholder and a close associate of Mellon, assures passage.

"I wish I could show you what a small marihuana cigarette can do to one of our degenerate Spanish-speaking residents.

That's why our problem is so great; the greatest percentage of our population is composed of Spanish speaking persons most of whom are low mentally, because of social and racial conditions." - Federal Bureau of Narcotics Commissioner Harry Jacob Anslinger testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee

Dr. James Woodward denounces the Marihuana Tax Law claiming fraud as the American Medical Association had not been informed 'marihuana' was cannabis.

"No definite scientific study of the effects of marihuana was presented to substantiate the position that marihuana was a dangerous drug.

No synthesis of available scientific information was submitted nor was there any statement by the Public Health Service.

Neither of the government's own public health experts, Assistant Surgeon General, Dr. Walter Treadway, and Dr. Lawrence Kolb, testified, nor did Drs. Walter Bromberg or JF Siler who had recently published scientific articles on the effects of cannabis in humans." - National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse

The most useful crop known to man becomes a dangerous narcotic with the stroke of a pen (spellbinding).

The people and ecology of the Earth have been suffering ever since.

The ecological damage visited upon the Earth may be irreversible.

1942 US Department of Agriculture produces a 14-minute film, 'Hemp for Victory', encouraging and instructing 'patriotic American farmers' to grow 350,000 acres of hemp each year for the war effort.


"Through a report released in 1983 under the Freedom of Information Act, it was discovered (after 40 years of secrecy) that Anslinger was appointed to a top-secret committee to create a "truth serum" for the Office of Strategic Service (OSS), which evolved into the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Anslinger and his spy group picked, as America's first truth serum, "honey oil", a much purer, almost tasteless form of hash oil made from cannabis sativa, to be administered in food to spies, saboteurs, military prisoners and the like, to make them unwittingly "spill the truth."

Fifteen months later marijuana extracts were discontinued by Anslinger's group as America's first truth serum because it was noted that they didn't work all the time.

The people being interrogated would often giggle or laugh hysterically at their captors, get paranoid, or have insatiable desires for food.

Also, the report noted that American OSS agents and other interrogation groups started using the honey oil illegally themselves.

In Anslinger's OSS group's final report on marijuana as a truth serum, there was no mention of violence caused by the drug!

In fact, the opposite was indicated." - Jack Herer

Mayor's Committee on Marihuana
New York Academy of Medicine City of New York, 1944


1950s Under the communist threat voiced by McCarthy, Harry J. Anslinger now says marijuana will pacify a soldier and they would not want to fight the communists.

This extreme passivism was proved wrong empirically in Vietnam.

1960s Gateway theory takes hold when marijuana becomes the leading new recreational drug surpassing tobacco even though there is no scientific evidence for the theory that marijuana is a “gateway” drug.

The cannabis-using cultures in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America show no propensity for other drugs.

In the eighties when cocaine abuse exploded marijuana use declined.

'NOT linked to depression, lung cancer or asthma in later life’

1972 The Shafer Report commissioned by Richard Nixon and named after former Pennsylvania Governor Raymond Shafer, concludes that "neither the marijuana user nor the drug itself can be said to constitute a danger to public safety" and urged the government to stop penalizing marijuana smokers for personal use or distribution.

Heavy Marijuana Use Doesn't Damage Brain


1974 California Governor Ronald Reagan hires Robert G. Heath to asphyxiate Rhesus monkeys.

1980 NORML receives - after six years of requests and suing the government - an accurate accounting of the research procedures used in the Robert G. Heath's report:

Rhesus monkeys were strapped into a chair and then strapped into gas masks and given the equivalent of 63 Colombian strength joints in "five minutes, thru the gas masks" losing no smoke.

The monkeys inhale large amounts of carbon monoxide due to the burning of 63 joints in five minutes.

Carbon monoxide kills brain cells and is given off by any burning object.

The Heath Monkey study is actually a study in animal asphyxiation and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Much larger monkey studies, one by Dr. William Slikker of the National Center for Toxicological Research and the other by Charles Rebert and Gordon Pryor of SRI International, found no evidence of physical alteration in the brains of monkeys exposed to daily doses of cannabis for up to a year.

Human studies of heavy cannabis users in Jamaica and Costa Rica found no evidence of abnormalities in brain physiology.



Drug War Blocking Potential Treatments
for Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Journal Claims



1978 300,000 people are in American prisons for all crimes combined.

Five times more tax is being spent on building schools than on building prisons.

1992 to 2003 Those who admit using PHRMA to 'catch a buzz' nearly doubles from 7.8 million to 15.1 million.


1999 to 2004 Unintentional overdoses of psychotherapeutic chemicals including sleeping pills, antiDepressants and antiPyschotics resulting in death grows 84%.

2005 Scientists from King's College at the University of London determine that people trying to juggle phone calls, e-mail and other routine office distractions suffered a greater loss of IQ than someone smoking cannabis.

2006 700,000 people in America are admitted to emergency room care for adverse reactions to prescribed drugs according to the Journal of the American Medical Association.

"If I had every problem the television ads say I do - breathing, lifting, walking, sitting, sleeping and my toes rotting off - I'd welcome death. Drug companies are pushers, and Congress and the FDA are the cop on the beat who's been paid off to look the other way. Is there anything more laughable than the thought that the FDA is protecting anything but the profit margins of pharmaceutical companies?" - Bill Maher, 4/27/06

2007 There are almost 2 million people in prison, 800,000 in jail and the penal system supports 300,000 jail guards.

Federal and state spending for new schools has dwindled to less than one-fifth that of prison building expenditures.

"Drug offenders, most of them passive users or minor dealers, are swamping our prisons. 47.5% of all the drug arrests in 2007 were for marijuana offenses. Nearly 60% of the people in state prisons serving time for a drug offense have no history of violence or of any significant selling activity. Four out of five drug arrests were for possession of illegal substances, while only one in five was for sales. Three-quarters of the drug offenders in our state prisons were there for nonviolent or purely drug offenses." - Senator Jim Webb (D-Va.)

2008 American College of Physicians calls for rigorous scientific evaluation of the potential therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana and an evidence-based review of marijuana's status as a Schedule I controlled substance.

More than 700,000 of the America's 20-million cannabis users are arrested for marijuana possession. Between 1998 to 2008 there are over 5,000,000 arrests on 'marijuana' charges.

Cannabis ‘One of the Most Valuable of Drugs’



"Cannabis will one day be seen as a wonder drug. Like penicillin, herbal cannabis is remarkably nontoxic, has a wide range of therapeutic applications and would be quite inexpensive if it were legal." - Lester Grinspoon, Harvard Medical School

November 10, 2009 American Medical Association urges the federal government to reconsider its classification of marijuana as a dangerous drug with no accepted medical use.

The California Medical Association passed resolutions that declared the criminalization of marijuana a failed public health policy and called on the organization to take part in the debate on changing current policy.

The ingestion of cannabis has the following positive effects:

relieves asthma; relieves glaucoma; reduces many types of tumors; is the best treatment for many types of epilepsy; the best muscle relaxant, back spasm medicine and general antispasmodic medication; cannabidiols have antibiotic uses; as a topical analgesic in the treatment of arthritis, herpes, cystic fibrosis and rheumatism; the best natural expectorant; lowers blood pressure, dilates the arteries and reduces body temperature an average of one-half degree, thereby relieving stress and migraine; and alleviating nausea while increasing appetite.

Cannabidiol from cannabis sativa is the best treatment for other neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

National Institute of Mental Health reports that cannabis smoke is the only medicine known on Earth that can fully stop the brain damage after a stroke occurs:

(1) by causing the arteries to enlarge and allowing virtually any clot to flow harmlessly through the brain and

(2) by stopping the production of glutamate, which poisons and kills brain cells after the blood clot is in place.

One puff of 'ditch weed' from Iowa will stop the aftereffects of 95% of all strokes, virtually ending paralysis, speech loss and coma resulting from strokes.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
