In Jamaica, a twist on wine tours for pot lovers

• AP
Call them ganja tours: smoky, mystical — and technically illegal — journeys to some of the island's hidden cannabis plantations, where pot tourists can sample such strains as "purple kush" and "pineapple skunk."

People are becoming more educated on WHY cannabis was prohibited. MJ prohibition is not based on facts. It is based on WR Hurst's greed & fear based misinformation propaganda campaign.

Hurst wasn't even after the smoking variety of cannabis, he was after industrial hemp because he had a lotta $$ tied up in forest lands that produced paper for his news paper.

Hurst's efforts to prohibit industrial hemp has cost the world a LOT of trees. Hemp paper is far superior to wood for paper & 1,000s of pother products. Hemp is also a very excellent carbon scrubber.

So where are the greens when we need 'em? Hemp is an environmentalist's wet dream. :-)

Topics for research on the subject:

History of cannabis prohibition

Uses for industrial hemp

Rx drugs more deadly than prohibited drugs

Henry Ford's hemp car

Cannabis really is a good medicine

Law  Enforcement Against Prohibition

US Founders and Indian Hemp

or a compilation of most of the above in the book

The Emperor Has No Clothes by Jack Herer

The war on some drugs came later & is now more dangerous than the illegal substances. Not a good thing.

The Re-legalization of at least cannabis would save a lot of lives from prison & death. Cartels & gangs kill a lot of innocent folks in their turf wars.Now we have cops killing innocents because of "OOOPS! wrong address again" drug raids.

It is far past time to stop the insanity.
