    We had some wild weeds that grew along the old fence rows that came from the stuff they use to grow and sell and they made rope and stuff out of it. It shouldn’t be used for chewing like B.C. here. I’m not saying that that’s what he’s chewing, but if he’s hearing turtles moo, then it might make one wonder if it’s some prehistoric version. He’s not chewing anything in the last two panels. 8-)

    What’s weird is that cereal rye grows around this area in large patches. Lines the roads, fills parks, etc. Never thought of a use for it, but it’s strange to think that the local “weeds” are what people planted for crops years ago.
    Before people started smoking pot en masse in the 1960s, states in the midwest ignored mj plants because they fed a lot of wildlife. People were smart enough not to french-fry their grey matter back then.

    “with a moo, moo here,” goes with a cow in the song about Old McDonald but what about when you get to a turtle?
    Hsss, hsss here and a hss, hss there?

    But don’t forget the drug addled generations prior. Opium and cocaine were very popular in the 20s and 30s – and remember “Reefer Madness” the anti-pot movie from 1936?

    They were still showing it in the fifties. It was pure fantasy, as so much about drugs is.

    Hemp was being used medicinally thousands of years ago, but in its wisdom, our government has declared it to be toxic. Big Pharma’s offerings are, of course, perfectly benign.

    Ha. Ha.

    But then, we have a government which has seen fit to repeal the laws of physics, too. If you ship food at 28 deg, it is frozen, not fresh, but not according to our government.

    But weed doesn’t ‘fry your brain’, any more than aspirin does. One of my doctors told me that if BigPharma could do it, they’d get aspirin banned. If they can’t patent it, and charge obscene amounts of money for it, they don’t want it available.

    Back when weed was outlawed, the AMA and pharmaceutical industries were both gearing up to shut out the competition. For doctors – midwives, chiropracters, naturopaths, for the chemical industries, weed and opium, which were the best natural drugs available.

    Let’s not let them discover that they best way to treat asthma is not toxic waste, but Thymus vulgaris, which most of us have on our seasoning shelf and many in our gardens.

    I don’t know how much recreation people would get from your wild hemp anyway. Hemp grown for fiber tends to be very low in the active compounds which either make you ‘high’ or heal, or both. Strains that are grown for healing or recreation have much higher active fractions, and those chemicals address acute and chronic pain, including nerve pain, they heal the damage caused by many kinds of chemo. Far from frying your brain, they can heal it.

    Time people did some real research and discovered what they are throwing away. A lot of them seem to be doing just that.

    In states which offer permits for medical marijuana use, oncologists are happy to sign for cards for their patients. It seems that cancer patients who use weed do better than cancer patients who don’t.

    Time to end the ‘war on drugs’, and begin the amnesty with hemp. Hemp is much too useful to outlaw.
