Feinstein is a cancer to America and the world. She needs to be removed but California is too diluded to see that.

A media blitz of ‘yellow journalism’ raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. Hearst’s newspapers ran stories emphasizing the horrors of marihuana. The menace of marihuana made headlines. Readers learned that it was responsible for everything from car accidents to loose morality.
Films like ‘Reefer Madness’ (1936), ‘Marihuana: Assassin of Youth’ (1935) and ‘Marihuana: The Devil’s Weed’ (1936) were propaganda designed by these industrialists to create an enemy. Their purpose was to gain public support so that anti-marihuana laws could be passed.

Their is a strain of hemp with high levels of CBD, and low levels of THC. It is being used to treat people/children who have seizures, these kids couldn't function for anything in life and were close to death, and hemp saved their life, they are now eating and talking, which are 2 simple tasks they couldn't do before the Hemp treatments, also being researched for cancer patents, so while Alcohol is Killing people worldwide, Hemp is saving many innocent fragile lives! and many other resources, Hemp is a Future Resource that can positively help change the world!
