Once Upon a Time…

The people of the land were happy, times were fun & interesting. Opportunities were plentiful and cannabis was legal. What happened?!

Some Rich & Powerful Fatcats, along with some corrupt politicians, changed National laws for their own benefit. Hearst publications was involved – they printed many newspapers and also owned massive timber rights. Dupont Chemical Corp. was beginning the first production of plastic (oil product) nylon rope.

Hemp was going to be the crop of the future for America in 1936, illegal in 1937. It could yield three, sometimes four harvests yearly. 100% of the plant is usable for many products. Hemp rope had long been a reliable, strong rope material and Dupont did not want the competition it posed, so why not just work politics and eliminate it. Bejamin Franklin had a hemp paper mill.

Time for some Hocus Pokus!

In 1937 hemp & cannabis were made illegal for just these reasons, super profit for super rich.

But the People of Colorado rose up and said this is wrong! How can you legislate this with all the pill makers putting out products that cause all kinds of side effects?! The People of Colorado became the first state to allow medical & recreational use of cannabis.

People behind you will be mesmerized by this shirt!
