We see the beginning of the legalisation of Cannabis taking place across the states and suggestions of it’s legalisation are also spreading like wildfire across Europe. After almost a Century of it’s use and possession being deemed illegal why the sudden change?
Why the sudden push for it’s legalisation and why would you think a man like George Soros would be one of the big financiers behind it’s legalisation campaign ?
Could it be something to do with his large share holdings in Monsanto?
Monsanto have the ability to genetically modify Cannabis and by modifying the plant as we know it can then be patented and thus control can begin to take shape.
Studies show that Monsanto without much fanfare conducts research projects on the active ingredient in marijuana, namely THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), in order to genetically manipulate the plant. David Watson of the Dutch company Hortapharm has since 1990 created the world’s largest collection of Cannabis seed varieties. In 1998, the British firm GW Pharmaceuticals signed an agreement with Hortapharm that gives GW Pharma the rights to use the Hortapharm cannabis for their research.
In 2003 the German Bayer AG then signed an agreement with GW Pharmaceuticals for joint research on a cannabis-based extract. In 2007, Bayer AG agreed to an exchange of technology with … Monsanto, both according to exchange the results of their research. Thus Monsanto has discreet access to the work of the cannabis plant and its genetic modification. In 2009 GW Pharmaceuticals announced that it had succeeded in genetically altering a cannabis plant and patented a new breed of cannabis – www.encod.org
The war on cannabis that began in the 1930s seems to be coming to an end. Research shows that this natural plant, rather than posing a deadly danger to health, has a wide range of therapeutic benefits. But skeptics question the sudden push for legalization, which is largely funded by wealthy investors linked to Big Ag and Big Pharma.
