What’s it all about?
“Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country.” – Thomas Jefferson, 1791
The CCHHI will make the natural resource hemp legal in California again.
Q: What kinds of issues can hemp impact?
A: Hemp can help solve a vast variety
of society’s problems including…
Global warming, hunger, and even cancer!
-Hemp for cheap, green gasoline and oil.
-Hemp for biodegradable plastics and paints.
-Hemp fiber for sustainable paper and textiles.
-Anything hemp can produce is sustainable/renewable and non-toxic.
-Hemp enriches the soil and can be grown without rotating crops.
-Hemp can create thousands of jobs.
-Millions of dollars of Hemp is imported.
Why not produce it locally.
-In 1937 Hemp was called a billion dollar crop in Popular Mechanics.
Today that figure is estimated in the trillions.
-Millions of taxpayer money is also wasted fighting Hemp/Marijuana- with no success.
The Oil/Energy Crisis
-Hemp can fuel vehicles and produce motor oil.
Hemp is way more efficient than corn for bio-fuel.
-Hemp is cleaner than coal, natural gas, shale, etc.
-Hemp fuel is not subject to global politics or peak oil price speculation.
Stop energy price spikes.
Hemp fuel can do anything fossil fuel can.
-In the 1930s, Ford Co. engineers successfully produced alcohol, charcoal, tar and other stock chemicals from Hemp.
Safety and Security
-Reduce use of toxic petro-chemicals.
-Cease using dangerous nuclear energy.
-Reduce pollution and contamination.
-Stop the foreign oil addiction
-Stop funding unstable regimes.

Solve hunger problems.
-THC from Hemp flower oil has been shown in studies to safely reduce/remove tumors.
Hemp just may be the cure for cancer.
-Medical Cannabis has been scientifically proven to be effective for many conditions and diseases despite stifled research.
This is why Cannabis is already legal medicinally in 16 states and DC.
-Cannabis is one of the few substances with no LD-50
…making it safer than alcohol, virtually all prescribed drugs, aspirin, and even many foods (ie the potato).
-People are severely punished or killed for growing this herbal medicine.
-Cannabis is the biggest factor in costly prison overpopulation.
The USA incarcerates more people than China and Russia combined.
-People wishing to treat their own cancer are getting locked up!
-Cannabis trade driven underground fuels violent cartel drug wars.
Prohibition of alcohol similarly increased violence and empowered mafias.
-The lives and billions of tax money wasted fighting Cannabis has not worked because Cannabis truly is a miracle plant!
