The truth about this abundant natural resource – and why it should be legalized As of July 2016, Nixon’s War on Drugs has been demonizing cannabis for a total of 45 years.
The United States has spent over 1 trillion dollars on the drug war, while public enemy number one—namely marijuana—is legal in some capacity in 25 states + Washington DC.
There are 14 states looking into legalizing medical or recreational marijuana in 2016, and in multiple polls, more than half of all Americans want to see the plant legalized.
Yet, marijuana and hemp continue to be classified as a schedule 1 narcotic by the federal government—which is the same drug classification as heroin. In Jesse Ventura’s Marijuana Manifesto, the former governor exposes the corruption and the truth behind America’s contradictory stance on marijuana and hemp.
He lays out his own philosophy on cannabis and why he’s always been in favor of legalization.
Through copious examples from other countries and from America’s own history books, Ventura demonstrates what the United States has to gain if cannabis were completely legalized. “Yes, this book calls for ending the War on Drugs,” Governor Ventura explains. “This book calls for ending the marijuana prohibition. I’m not an anarchist. I believe in laws and regulations, but I also believe in common sense, and the government hasn’t been doing a good job in that department when it comes to cannabis.” Readers will discover why the DEA can’t be trusted, why the US government patented CBD, and which Big Pharma companies have exclusive rights to create marijuana medication.
Plus much more about the medical and economical benefits of the incredible cannabis plant—including the nutritional and production value of hemp. “I say legalize marijuana because we have a chance to leave this world a better place for our children,” says Ventura. “Marijuana legalization is job creation, tax dollars, something to rejuvenate our pathetic economy.
This is a multibillion-dollar industry. This is about jobs; this is about economics; this is about freedom. This is about taking our country back.
This is about getting out of these useless wars and getting back to what matters most to Americans: taking care of our own economy and our own citizens.”
