What does the Bible say about making a creation of almighty God´s illegal or immoral? This book uncovers the ugly truth about America´s ´´drug war´´, while disproving all the myths and government propaganda about medical marijuana. In this book you will discover the following: 1. America´s drug war is based on racism and illegality on the part of government, and particularly law enforcement. 2. The private prison industry is raking in billions of US taxpayer money because of the ´´drug war´´. 3. Alcohol, tobacco, prescription pain killers, and codeine are all at least five times more dangerous than marijuana. 4. The pharmaceutical industry, as well as law enforcement, benefit financially from the drug war. 5. The federal government has been lying for decades about the addictive properties of medical marijuana. Cannabis has been repeatedly proven in study after study to be non-addictive. This book blows the lid off the ´´war on drugs´´ while proving conclusively that the ´´drug war´´ is actually an all-out war on the American people. Our time to rise up has come. 1.

Cannabis has been around for approximately 10,000 years. It has been given different names as it spread across the world, and historians speculate that many cultures added additional ingredients to the drug. For example, the Spanish called it hashish, and it was suspected to contain 50 percent opium. The medical name for cannabis is astragalus, and the term marijuana in the United States was borrowed from Spain. China was the first nation to discover cannabis and its intoxicating affects. In 2737 BC, the emperor of China claimed it had great healing effects. He wrote that it had the ability to be used as a medication for ´´gout, malaria, [and] absent-mindedness”. It would be introduced to the Muslims in 12th century Persia, which is current day Iran. Before it was banned by the Koran, it was used recreationally with alcoholic beverages. In 1545, the Spanish brought cannabis to America. Cannabis and tobacco became the main cash crops. It was used recreationally, and many products contained cannabis in them, including ´´fiber, paper, nautical use, lamp oil, food, etc”. Some medications in America were concocted with cannabis. In the 1920s, marijuana became a popular recreational drug. Historians claim that the surge in popularity was attributed to prohibition. Cannabis clubs began to surface in big cities. They were called tea pads, and there was widespread marijuana usage. Cannabis appeared in a book of medications called Pharmacopeia: A Book of Medications from 1850-1942, and it was characterized as a medication for all types of ailments. It was considered to help many illnesses, such as ´´labor pain, nausea, and rheumatism”. That reference book had a list of over 100 medical uses for cannabis. However, doctors were not certain of dosages or how to emit the substance. Why was it outlawed? This audiobook will discuss that and more. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lorri Heneveld.

Storytelling from the man who lived the adventure. The whirlwind odyssey towards enlightenment begins. The ´60s come alive in this entertaining non-fiction light-hearted, multi-level history/memoir. ´´Imagine all the people living life in peace.´´ True adventures of a young UPI reporter who followed the ´60s over the edge and returned to tell his story. Hop aboard an audacious 100-bus, round-the-country, flower power caravan with pot-smoking San Francisco guru Stephen Gaskin and his tribe of 300 hippies ´´out to save the world.” Our story includes a close look at Gaskin and his whole guru trip. In the ´70s, The Farm in Summertown, Tennessee, was America’s biggest, most thriving commune. At its peak, 1,500 spiritual hippies lived and worked collectively - all dedicated to creating a gracious lifestyle the world can afford - a microcosm of peace, a brother and sisterhood. For 12 years, hard-working, idealistic, mostly young people shared life, labor, and a vision; built a village, grew food, celebrated life, enjoyed zero unemployment, and manifested a mostly happy, peaceful vegan utopia with its own doctors, clinic, midwives, teachers, book publishing company, soy dairy, bakery, and solar-heated school on 1,764 acres. The collective’s global outreach nongovernmental organization Plenty International was awarded the Swedish ´´alternative Nobel prize,” the Right Livelihood Award for its work. A volunteer earthquake reconstruction carpenter, Melvyn Stiriss, and a Plenty crew built a clinic for Mother Teresa in Guatemala and worked with Mayans to build houses and schools in remote mountain villages. A ´´cannabis church,” The Farm attempted to legalize marijuana for religious use. Stiriss was a co-founder of The Farm and lived 12 years in the community working as a farmer, carpenter, mason, miller, baker, chef, gatekeeper and news editor. 1. Language: English.
