Here are 5 of the greatest things ever said about cannabis.
Fifth is Willie Nelson who stated to High Times Magazine, “I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, that gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”
Hunter S. Thompson stated, “I have always loved marijuana. It has been a source of joy and comfort to me for many years and I still think if it as a basic staple of life, along with beer and ice and grapefruits — and millions of Americans agree with me.”
Barack Obama stated, in reference to Bill Clinton’s “I smoked but I didn’t inhale,” line, “When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.”
Henry Ford stated, “Why use up the forests, which were centuries in the making and the mines, which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?”
Terence McKenna stated, “If the world ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ don’t include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn’t worth the hemp it was written on.”
