101 Ways That Hemp Can Save Our World, by Rowan Robinson. Concise pocket-size guide to why hemp cultivation is important to the health of each person & the planet. Pointed & thought-provoking arguments provide a sensible response to the "war on drugs" madness.
Sometimes it is only through the pithy insights of a pocket book or manifesto that the world can fully understand an issue. Such is certainly the case with Cannabis Sativa, as most of the American people - especially the DEA - seem to have trouble understanding the practical value of industrial hemp _and_ the spiritual and medicinal value of its psychoactive sister, Marijuana.
Designed to fit in the pack pocket, this handy little guide covers a wide range of factual data, arguments & possibilities. Showing how this miracle plant can be used for food, fuel, clothing, housing and paper, as well as medical marijuana, Omega 3 nutrition & a socially superior drug of choice. Not only the common angles of saving the forest, sustainability and the hemp-mobile, but also considering less common aspects, such as hemp humus, tantric uses and economic arguments.
To avoid confusion, the first part of this book concentrates on ways that non-psychoactive hemp has made, is making, or could make a positive impact on the world. The second part then concentrates on Marijuana.
The two are separate issues and you can be legitimately and completely in favor of one and against the other. But one of the truly remarkable things about Cannabis Sativa is that one form of it has served humanity in the most utilitarian ways, while the other has appealed to our most spiritual & cerebral nature. Thus it seems entirely appropriate to celebrate the dual nature of this age-old ally in one book.
