I'm so glad that there are small-minded people and ones that don't 
see the big picture. In Butte County, I'm sure people don't want 
fracking, but you want gas for your cars and plastics. Oh, and to 
feel safe, you will vote yes on Measures G and H.

If you open your mind and read The Emperor Wears No Clothes by Jack 
Herer, you will find out that marijuana (hemp) was a crop in America 
that not only powered cars and farm equipment, but also was used for 
canvas in the covered wagons and ships that sailed.

We need a big change here in the USA. The government is too big and 
tells us what we can't and can do, which is very little. We need to 
go big. For one, I would like to see hemp grown for food, fuel, 
clothing, medical and recreational purposes. Until then, we'll see 
fracking off the California coast and more people in jail for a plant 
that can change us for the better.
