What is Marijuana? What is Cannabis?

What is Marijuana?  What is Cannabis?

What is Marijuana?

Marijuana is a term referring to the Cannabis plant. The term marijuana for cannabis, in English-language usage, dates to the end of the 1800s.  Marijuana is a word derived from the Mexican Spanish slang originally spelled variously as marihuana, mariguana, etc, but the ultimate derivation of the etymology is unknown. The term "Marijuana" was popularized by Harry Jacob Anslinger and William Randolph Hearst, in their complete and total assault on the cannabis plant by labeling cannabis by the unknown name, “marijuana”. Harry Anslinger was appointed the first Commissioner of the Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) on August 12, 1930. He held the office 32 years as the head of the department until 1962.  The FBN is now known as the DEA.
Anslinger and William Randolph Hearst used the word marijuana to demonize the cannabis or hemp plant using racism and lies in the most despicable ways, and is reverberated into modern day Law Enforcement with its enforcement and incarcerations disproportionately inflicted upon the Nations minorities.




Harry Anslinger Quotes:

Harry Anslinger, Testimony to Congress, 1937

 ”There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others.”

Other Anslinger Quotes:

"Reefer makes darkies think they are as good as a White Man"
"The primary reason to make marijuana illegal is its effect on degenerate races"

"Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.” 
“Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.”


William Randolph Hearst  had lots of reasons to condemn cannabis or "Marijuana" as it was to be called. First of all it made him lots of money selling his racist newspapers. Hearst ran hysterical headlines with stories portraying "Negroes" and Mexicans as frenzied beasts, under the influence of marijuana, playing anti-white "voodoo-satanic" music (jazz). He took advantage of  prejudice against blacks and immigrants by printing that marijuana-crazed negroes were raping white women and by describing images of lazy, pot-smoking Mexicans to his nearly all white readers. 

Hearst had a special hatred for Mexicans and Latinos starting with the 1898 Spanish American War, where Hearst lost 800,000 acres of  prime Mexican timberland by the “marijuana” smoking army of Pancho Villa. The Hearst newspaper denounced Spaniards, Mexican-Americans, and Latinos non-stop for three decades. He also waged a similar racist smear campaign against the Chinese, referring to them as the “Yellow Peril.” Demonizing cannabis by calling it "Marijuana" was a special thrill for Hearst as new technologies in the hemp pulp paper industries threatened his vast wood pulp paper making empire.

William Randolph Hearst
"The King of Yellow Journalism"
Example from the San Francisco Examiner:

“Marihuana makes fiends of boys in thirty days"—"Hashish goads users to bloodlust.”
“By the tons it is coming into this country — the deadly, dreadful poison that racks and tears not only the body, but the very heart and soul of every human being who once becomes a slave to it in any of its cruel and devastating forms…. Marihuana is a short cut to the insane asylum. Smoke marihuana cigarettes for a month and what was once your brain will be nothing but a storehouse of horrid specters. Hasheesh makes a murderer who kills for the love of killing out of the mildest mannered man who ever laughed at the idea that any habit could ever get him….”





Hollywood also played up to the new fears of this new alien "Threat to Humanity" called Marijuana during the 1930's and 40's with movies like "Reefer Madness",  "Marihuana: The Devil's Weed", "She Shoulda Said 'No'!", and others. You can watch some of these full length films in the Marijuana Planet,  THC Cafe.



William C. Woodward, M.D., lobbyist for the American Medical Association before the U.S. Congress at hearings for the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act, testified, "The term 'Marijuana' is a mongrel word that has crept into this country over the Mexican border...." In fact, few people knew that the word marijuana was demonizing cannabis or hemp, which was grown and smoked since the beginnings of the United States and in fact for thousands and thousands of years.
There are all kinds of theories about big business conspiracies and back door meetings to eradicate cannabis hemp and they may all be true. But the fact is cannabis hemp was eradicated by one word. That word was Marijuana.

What is Cannabis?

Cannabis is one of the most useful plants known to mankind. Cannabis has been used for fiber, for seed and seed oils, for food, for religious uses, for medical purposes, for clothing, for paper, and as a recreational drug for thousands of years. Today there are 200,000 uses for cannabis. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew cannabis. The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence are both written on cannabis paper. The American flag sewn by Betsy Ross was made from cannabis. The Holy Oil of God as described in Exodus 30:22 contained 6 pounds of cannabis, mistranslated by some Bibles as calamus. Cannabis was used as a medicine for centuries. The ropes used to build the Pyramids and the Temple of Solomon were made of cannabis. Sails and rigging were made from cannabis for thousands of years. The tents and clothes that our soldiers wore were made of cannabis....


Yet this wonderful plant of God remains illegal, largely due to the prohibitionists reefer madness smear campaigns and the efforts of racists like William Randolf Hearst of the 1930s. Industrial Hemp is legal in most Industrial Countries with the exception of the United States and a few others. Henry Ford planned to run his cars with ethanol made from hemp. Today we could produce 1800 gallons of ethanol per acre. Ethanol is a non-polluting renewable energy resource.  Legalization of cannabis hemp could produce millions of jobs and eliminate of need for foreign oil.


          

"Make the most of the Indian hemp seed, and sow it everywhere!"
 George Washington, The Writings of George Washington Volume 33, page 270 (Library of Congress), 1794

    Wow. This is the first time I have come to your site Cindy. You are a lovely person but we disagree on some issues. I would not have believed the abuse you are suffering. But now I see it. I have spent a great deal of my life fighting for cannabis: religious use, recreational use, medical use, artistic use, and industrial use. Never have I seen anything like this from any cannabis consumer. My mother collected dolls. She was a great lady. For those of you trying to abuse this Lady you have my contempt. Shame on all of you. You demonize cannabis with your abuse of this person. How dare you. Cannabis activists such as myself do not behave like that. You take all of us who have worked and suffered to give you the right to use cannabis and throw it away. Shame on you. All of you are truely pathetic coming down on this Lady like this. Cannabis consumers are good people, good neighbors, and good friends. Nothing that I have seen here indicates that, out of you people. All you are trying to accomplish is to reverse all the progress I and millions of others have worked for. Shame on all of you. To Cindy, even if you oppose cannabis, no one should be treated as you have been here. For the rest of you I hope you enjoy judgement day. Snort some more crank because you are not cannabis people.

    cindybin2001 +Terry Winger AARAGGHHHHHHH YOU STILL DON'T GET IT! You are yet ANOTHER jerkhead pot smoker who thinks that if only I knew that there are "good people" who smoke POT, that I'd suddenly see the light and realize it's okay. I have said over and over that that makes it WORSE! If you are such a good person, then why would you smoke pot?? YOu of ALL people should know better! These "good people, good neighbors and good friends" you talk about who smoke pot, WHO ARE THEY? Tell them to email me, I'd love to give them a piece of my mind. They should be ashamed of themselves, smoke pot! They set a terrible example and go against everything that most parents try to teach their kids about drugs and life!!! If they are so dang "good", then WHAT ARE THEY DOING USING DRUGS??? And what do you mean, you have been fighting for cannabis, and for "recreational use"? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?? What kind of example are you setting??? You need to GROW UP. How old are you? Where are your parents? Do they know you are like this?? I will use your ridiculous email in one of my many upcoming blogs and videos to show why we all need to speak up against marijuana and why it should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES. Again, it is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it. Like you! You shouldn't even be THINKING about drugs! Grow up already.

  2. Well Cindy I guess you did not appreciate my coming to you aid. I will not do that again. I was feeling sorry for you. But as to your comment to me, it is totally irrelevant to me. I could care less what you say or think. Not only is cannabis in the Holy Oil of God, it was also in the incense along with being used for anointing, where by you became a Christian because of the Holy Oil anointing. You are simply a false anointed and doing the work of the Satan. Revelations 7 describes the return of the Holy Oil and the incense as well as the anointing of the 144,000. As for me I have received the true holy oil and receive the holy vapors whenever I can. Your battle on a holy plant of God shows your deception and evil intent. Maybe one of those Dolls of yours are demon possessed. I will pray for you.

  12. Cannabis of course is known as marijuana and pot. It is associated with drug users and stoners. But if we can put away that stigma, we find that cannabis has four times the cellulose value as corn, making it a potentially good plant for ethanol production. Cannabis Seeds Canada
