Pot smokers have it right

I hear it all of the time, “the hemp debate is supported heavily by dope smokers,” or something along those lines. To me it is one of the most stupid arguments a person can use; it illustrates ignorance and how closed-minded the person is.

The reason I find it ignorant and closed-minded is because the people who say it are the people who have never taken the time to learn this issue, and are in most cases marijuana prohibitionists who lump pot and Industrial Hemp into the same category.

Not all Industrial Hemp advocates are “dope smokers” but I will have to admit a large number are, and there is a good reason for this.

The dope smokers, potheads, stoners, or whatever you want to call them, have an open mind and have taken the time to educate themselves. They have an interest in all things Cannabis related, and are always looking to learn more about it: how to grow it, what strands are most potent, what strands to avoid; you name it, they are very passionate about their favorite herb.

While on the other hand prohibitionists are a very closed-minded group of people. They refuse to educate themselves on any aspect of the Cannabis plant and what Industrial Hemp really is. They don’t want to know the facts because then they would have to find out they agree with the pot smokers and no way in hell are they going to admit that! So instead of educating themselves about the non-drug aspects of the Cannabis plant, they continue to rely on ignorance to make up their mind on the subject.

There is a growing list of people who are not in either category, and those are the people who rely on common sense and education to guide them. They don’t judge an idea or issue on who is promoting it but rather they take time to learn and educate themselves on the facts. And that’s the way it should be.

So wake up prohibitionists, when it comes to Industrial Hemp the pot smokers have it right, they have common sense and education on their side, what do you have?

How about you take time to educate yourself on Industrial Hemp with an open mind?
The truth should not be discounted regardless of who is telling it.

Look at the facts from both sides, then make up your mind.
