The Solution to our Environmental Woes is to End Prohibition

via chycho

The best solution to our environmental problems is to end prohibition. There is no other viable option short of the immediate end to military conflict that will have the same positive impact on the ecosystem. Our first step towards a sustainable existence should begin with cannabis. Its assimilation into our civilization is the safest, simplest, most efficient immediate solution that we can implement in time to prevent an ecological catastrophe.

Cannabis is a plant, and its use is as old as civilization itself. It has thousands of immediate and potential applications. Its cultivation rejuvenates the soil, it can replace wood products, it’s medicinal, and it can be used as building material, textiles, paint, plastic, fuel, paper, food and body care. It is one of the most important bounties of nature. It’s a plant that we were meant to use.

So what’s the hold up? The short answer is America’s “War on Drugs”. The United States started a legislative war on this plant genus almost a century ago and they do not want to give up the fight.

    Ending prohibition would be a productive step forward, I agree. So would ending our addiction to automobiles, strip malls, and suburban living – all of which are draining our planet of resources in unspeakable ways. Interesting that our focus is constantly on finding new sources for fuel so that we can keep producing and consuming, instead of finding means by which we can limit our levels of production and consumption overall. THAT is the solution to our environmental woes, and we don't have to wait for the laws to change to do it.
