This fabric design promotes my strong belief that the United States needs to start producing Cannabis for both medicinal and industrial use and here is why. First, during my cancer treatments I reacquainted myself with the miracle of hemp. Suggested to me by a nurse who saw I wasn't doing well with the pharmaceuticals the hospital was giving me for the trouble I was having eating. The pills they gave me caused sever dizziness and didn't work that well. Two hits of pot and I could eat, the stomach cramps stopped in seconds and it played a big part in saving my life. Marijuana is also well documented as the best treatment for crones disease and many other physical and mental health issues.
Then there is the nutritional value. Hemp seeds have the highest volumn of amino fatty acids of any known plant on Earth, far surpassing even flax seed. Used as flour in breads and snacks it is what we consider a super food in both the amount of nutrition and the body's ability to break down and use that nutrition.
Then there is industry. Hemp oils can replace any petroleum product on the market. It can also be used to make a cleaner, better burning ethanol for gas but the big deal here is that growing hemp does not destroy the earths nutriant level like corn does and can be planted in the same fields every year which means more productive land per foot than corn.
We would never have to cut another tree for paper and many building products. Hemp is a yearly renewable product that makes a better, stronger, longer lasting paper than wood without all the acids of wood. It also makes a stronger composite building board than sawdust.
Clothing textiles are super strong and long lasting made from hemp and a whole lot easier to grow and pick than cotton.
There is no existing industry that couldn't benefit from hemp oil to run their machines bringing our dependance on fossil fuels down to nothing. It can make plastics stronger with less environmental impact, to be used in everything from home building to air planes and has the strength to do it better than any current products.
So here sweet Mary Jane is helping me educate folks as to why it is so important to stop the prohibition of Marijuana. Speak to your law makers and set forth a smart plan for our future. This would create so many jobs and bring a clean industry to the US that is so needed. The plant exist to nurture us and we can not allow our government to continue to deny us the benefits of this magical weed.

Clotilda, thank you for sharing that. We, as a country spend an insane amount of money housing prisoners whose offense was having a little pot. This benefits the for profit prisons that have taken over many state and federal prisons. Can you say cheap labor? There is a conspiracy there some where to be found. Pot heads must make better workers for some parts of the fashion industry than murderers, rapist and real criminals. The for profit prison works the busted pot heads for next to nothing and then still charges the government for running the prisons. Lobbyist and payoffs are buried deep in this dis-functional system.

First of all- good luck with your health and I hope you can stay in remission for good! Even though "it's not my thing", I'm a firm believer in it's benefits, especially medicinally but including even recreational. I worked in a jail for 2 years (as a nurse) and there were sadly, way too many folks in jail for possession of something that shouldn't be illegal.
I enjoyed the education in it's many amazing merits and hope our government can become more enlightened.
Thanks for stopping in Sandra and leaving your thoughts on ending Marijuana prohibition. Medicinal consumption seems to be getting some roots here in St. Louis but not quite there with Missouri as a state. My big push and where problems will occur is with industrializing it. If let to do what it can hemp could cause some hurt to big oil. Especially petroleum products. Pharma thought they were going to sell just the THC in a gel pill to cancer patients. The problem was that the capsules and what ever they did to the THC to extract it upset peoples stomachs when the whole reason behind using pot is to be able to eat.
P.S. I have collected certain kinds of frogs for years. Needless to say , your fishin, smokin frog is a fave.
If you live in MA or CO there is no legal problem with cannabis consumption. For centuries it has been a known healer. In the 60's , when Tim Leary made headlines because he advocated LSD, the press started a hate campaign that included weed. The Feds and many other authorities got on board and started the "War on Drugs". ronically, that triggered a mass consumption and production of all kinds of weird and dangerous substances hitherto unknown publically. Anyway, I'm glad you have some solace in something I enjoyed for many years but cannot anymore due to a chronic lung infection. Your designs are fabulous. Obviously your creative chops have not been impaired by your illness. Keep on. :)
Sylvie, this could be an answer to so many of the worlds problems. It is criminal to refuse us the opportunities to better ourselves and our environment with this plant the gods provided us with. I didn't even go through the entire rant and lists of thing and areas of life this plant can provide a more useful and better solution to. Thank you for joining the millions who are trying to get these laws changed. With Pharma and oil companies fighting this it will be a challenge but it is a challenge well worth the fight.

Thank you for checking out Miss Mary Jane and sharing your story. Until cancer made a sudden appearance in my life I treated any ailments I had homeopathically. Now that I am in remission I am back on the natural track. I drive my doctors nuts with refusing their pharma crap. Most of them don't even know anything about the pills they are prescribing. No clue on the side effects and they can be dangerous by just trusting the pharmaceutical company is peddling good medicine. I have had and heard so many nightmare stories on the bad effects from Pharma drugs. They never even go through real scientific testing anymore. Our government does nothing to really regulate the crap they push.
How amazing.. I knew it was good stuff, but didn't realise that it was that good! I'm right behind you in this! :^D ~ Sylvie
Love it! I take Lotus in Homeopathic form regularly which is similar to Cannibas Indica which you can also obtain from Homeopathic pharmacies.
Thanks Deborah! I try to show folks this information every chance I get. I really believe it would help with so many of the issues we face as a world and make a huge difference in just about everything. Hemp oil in my car burning cleaner and better than petroleum can happen if people would get behind it.
Oh, you clever girl. Well done and your notes are well thought out.
Thanks Katherine. I feel so strongly about this cause but our government is so disfunctional. This could solve so many problems with jobs and environmental issues. That is why there is so many dirty companies fighting it. Between Cannabis and algae we wouldn't need coal or petroleum and the pharmaceutical companies and all the candy they have made for mental issues would loose so many customers. Still there are some lawmakers who are turning around and the more states that at least decriminalize it the closer we get. That's another benefit not mentioned is the money saved in our prision system from decriminalizing marijuana. It's a sweet plant that could just keep on giving. The country was built on hemp exports.
;-) Agree! And your frog/toad is very cute!
