  • https://marygreeley.com/?p=87041 this is a bit of deja vu for me as I had ocean deadzones as a subplot in my recently published book Ideally Imperfect. Where's a special organism when you need one, to clean all this up. Soil run off from degraded land, forestry on steep slopes adjacent to waterways, the loss of filtering organisms such as shellfish, the loss of swamps that also filter and of course pollutants and shifting ocean currents all come together to make this a very serious issue. The ocean is a key part of the food chain as well as a thing of beauty. I'm not one to harp on about such things but I feel strongly about this one. Thirty years ago I could swim in the river where I lived at the time, swim with the fish in clear waters, see the sparkle of white quartz peeking out among the rocks at the bottom. About fifteen years ago I gave up. The rocks in the river were covered in a brown sludge. The life in the river was gone. People were dumping rubbish near my favourite swimming hole. Upstream intensive monoculture farming with heavy use of chemicals ... need I say more.

  • Ben & Jerry’s relies upon factory-style farming practices, such as antibiotics use and animal confinement, that contaminate the state’s waterways.” Last year, OCA testing revealed traces of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, in Ben & Jerry’s products purchased in the US and EU.
    HOW MUCH DOES THIS GARBAGE COST IN THE STORE__? Press Release Article, Here: https://www.organicconsumers.org/press/organic-consumers-association-sues-unilever-owned-ben-jerrys-over-deceptive-advertising-marketing
    Organic Consumers Association Sues Unilever-Owned Ben & Jerry's Over Deceptive Advertising and Marketing
    The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) today filed suit against Vermont-based Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc., for deceptive labeling, marketing and sale of Unilever’s Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream products. The suit was filed in D.C. Superior Court under the D.C. Consumer Protection Procedures Act.“Unilever reportedly spent more than $9 billion on advertising in 2017 alone,” said OCA International Director, Ronnie Cummins. “A significant portion of that was spent to create the false perception that Ben & Jerry’s is committed to a clean environment and high animal welfare standards. Unilever knows those values foster brand loyalty and also allow the company to charge a premium.”“Ben & Jerry’s decades-old practice of sourcing dairy ingredients from conventional dairy operations has led to a water pollution crisis in Vermont. There is nothing socially or environmentally responsible about that.”

  • There is much upheaval taking place, now, in both the physical and spiritual worlds. This is as it needs to be for Humanity and Earth to fully ascend into 5D. The higher vibration is literally “shaking out” all that is incompatible with 5D vibrations, which includes negative and dense fears and thoughts we are still supporting, and all the forces of darkness that are promoting the creation of these energies, to feed from them.

    For you, this means that there are a lot of entities and other forces desperately trying to continue using us as a rich source of loosh (negative emotional energy). At ground level, everything that is creating a negative, sad, fearful, hateful, grief-filled response in you, is milking the loosh from you! We are now, and have been for eons, farmed for loosh energy.

    Think about that next time you get triggered by “the other side”, since creating division is one of the BEST FARMING TOOLS the DARK FORCES have!!

    Keep your light high, and watch your emotions--don’t allow yourself to be used as a “LOOSH COW”!!

    There has never been a better time to launch a cannabis hemp business, what with the industry seeing expeditious growth over the last few years.

    Hemp is usually cultivated in in the northern hemisphere. Closely related to the Cannabis sativa plant species, hemp was originally spun into fiber some 10,000 years ago, according to Hemp, Inc.

    A fast-growing plant with an abundance of medical and industrial uses, hemp is rich in essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid (Omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (Omega-3).

    The crop is not to be confused with marijuana.

    It is non-psychoactive, so don’t expect to get high from hemp! What you can expect from this crop, however, is a sustainable renewable resource that is gaining global demand.

    ‘Ganjapreneurs’ are acknowledging this fact and jumping on the cannabis hemp business bandwagon, which has the potential to be incredibly lucrative in a flourishing market.

    CannabisNow’s great infographic demonstrates these attributes:

    Hemp is a Sustainable Renewable Resource
    Just one acre of hemp can be used to produce enough fiber to the amount of 2-3 acres of cotton. A single acre of hemp could also produce close to 1,000 gallons of methanol in one growing season. In fact, the crop is commonly used as an alternative clean burning fuel.

    Also used to create paper, hemp is strong, soft and long-lasting. What’s more, the sustainable renewable resource is not susceptible to mold and mildew, nor does it necessitate any pesticides or herbicides quite like cotton does.

    Perhaps one of the most environmentally friendly and beneficial crops of them all, hemp requires minor amounts of fertilizer to grow in abundance. Even if it is burned as a fuel, hemp will not negatively impact the environment.

    How, you ask?

    Well, when it is burned as a fuel it emits the same type of carbon dioxide (CO2) that the environment takes in. This makes hemp an appealing choice for environmentally-conscious cannabis hemp business owners.

    A Brief Insight into the History of Hemp in America
    During the Colonial times through World War II, hemp was an essential crop. The hemp seed was brought to Colonial America by the Puritans. It was widely planted and used as a fiber for the creation of sails, lines and caulking work.

    In the year 1841, Congress passed a law that requested the Navy to acquire hemp from domestic farmers. A 1919 article in the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station Bulletin no. 22 claims that hemp made its way from Virginia to Kentucky just before the Revolutionary War.

    Dependence on hemp soared throughout America during the 19th and Early 20th Centuries. Increased levels of production commenced in states like California, Illinois and Nebraska.

    Things soon changed throughout the 20th Century, when the federal government and individual states started to criminalize cannabis in all forms.

    Possession or transportation of cannabis was made illegal across the United States under federal law as per the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. However, the medical and industrial use of hemp was excluded from this law and an excise tax imposed on all hemp sales.

    The Modern Hemp Industry in the U.S.
    Today’s hemp industry is thriving, thanks to lighter regulations at the state level and increased awareness of the plant’s benefits, many of which are medically-focused.

    Hemp and Cannabidiol (CBD) are tolerated a lot more now than they were in the past. Doctors, scientists and the general public are embracing cannabis research and hemp production, with hemp-derived CBD quickly becoming one of the most in-demand products.

    A 140 percent increase in the number of acres licensed for hemp cultivation in the top 10 hemp-growing states was noticeable between the years 2016 and 2017. During the same period, the number of hemp producers swelled to double the amount.

    Estimates from Cannabis research firm Brightfield Group reveal how the U.S. market for hemp-derived CBD crept up to $291 million in 2017. By 2021, researchers believe it will inflate to $1.65 billion.

    If you thought that was impressive, get this: in 2017 there were three times more hemp producers in Oregon, Tennessee, and Vermont than the previous year.

    Growth spread throughout other states, too, with Minnesota’s cannabis hemp business producers increasing by 533 percent, while New York experienced 425 percent growth and North Dakota welcomed a 600 percent hike in production levels.

    Hemp programs expanded in Colorado and Kentucky throughout 2017 – two of 10 top hemp-producing states. Today, these states account for 64 percent of the total acres registered for cannabis hemp business production.

    The average number of acres registered for hemp production in the U.S. in 2017 was 1,787. This is an increase of 377 percent from the 374 acres licensed for hemp cultivation in the previous year, non-inclusive of Colorado and Kentucky.

    Uncertainty is Not Threatening U.S. Hemp Industry’s Future
    Although uncertainty plagues the cannabis hemp business industry in regards to how things will look in the future, this is not stopping policymakers and entrepreneurs from getting a slice of the U.S. hemp market.

    Based on data gathered by hemp-advocacy group Vote Hemp, hemp crops throughout the U.S. have doubled this year.

    In a total of 18 states, Vote Hemp discovered that there were 23,346 acres of space being used for hemp cultivation in 2017. Compared to the 9,649 acres of space being used for hemp cultivation back in 2016, this recent figure verifies growth of more than double.

    A whopping 1,456 farmers have already been issued with state licenses to grow hemp in the U.S. this year. Furthermore, the number of universities conducting hemp research is on the incline, with the number rising from 30 in 2016 to 32 in 2018.

    State licenses to cultivate hemp have been issued to 1,456 farmers so far this year and 34 states include hemp laws on the books. Vote Hemp President Eric Steenstra used this report as a way of driving Congress to make hemp farming legal nationwide.

    Hemp Production Could Impact Other Industries
    It is important to remember the implications that the cannabis hemp business industry may have on other industries.

    Primarily, the pharmaceutical industry is going to take a big hit, and not in a good way. Opioid medications are being replaced with hemp-derived CBD oils, whether the oil is being used as a substitute by an epileptic child, an elderly person with Parkinson’s disease, or a cancer patient with chronic pain.

    In 2016 alone, almost 19,000 Americans lost their lives to opioids. As fewer people seek out over-the-counter medications from pharmacists and the like, the pharmaceutical industry may struggle to keep up with hemp businesses. Nevertheless, the negative impact that hemp production may have on the pharmaceutical industry is not really a big issue, considering the number of lives it could possibly save.

    The positive impacts of hemp production on other industries far outweighs the negatives. Way before hemp cultivation was prohibited, the plant was widely used in many other industries. Paper, textiles, canvas, rope, clothing, construction, biofuel, plastic composites – these are just a few examples of the things that hemp was (and still can be) used to create.

    With the rising number of hemp farms throughout the U.S., it is inevitable that the aforementioned industries will benefit in the long-term. Lower production costs and higher demand for hemp-based products will likely translate to wealth for workers in alternative industries.

    The U.S. Hemp Industry is in the Infantile Stages
    Complete hemp cultivation is still illegal at the federal level, but this is not stopping ‘cannapreneurs’ from launching their very own cannabis hemp business.

    The downside to this fairly fresh industry is that hemp producers cannot grow hemp in states that have not set up a hemp program. Many people are also questioning the legality of hemp-based extracts, such as hemp-derived CBD. Hemp farmers statewide are continuously trying to discover the best cultivation practices. However, the demand for products developed from US-grown hemp remains unclear.

    The good news is that even the most traditional farmers out there are getting involved in the cannabis hemp business industry. Since industrial hemp boasts a plethora of uses, is it any wonder why farmers are growing their own hemp as an advanced investing strategy against lower-valued yields, like alfalfa or cotton?

    Moreover, certain states have demonstrated enthusiasm to support the burgeoning hemp industry by accepting more cultivators into hemp programs and modifying acreage restrains across the board.
