"IT'S TIME 4 HEMP PROHIBITION TO END - 2013 GLOBAL SUMMIT."
Keynote Show Pt. 1: Casper Leitch & Paul Stanford & Todd McCormick
on August 1, 2013 Time4Hemp issued a call for the hemp solution world wide
Final show in the six part solution summer series
Friday, 8/31, 9a-11a PT / 12n -2p ET
Since the start of the series:
Attorney General Eric Holder changing his stance
Dr. Sanja Gupta said on CNN that he was wrong about weed
Senator Patrick Leahy convening a hearing next month on marijuana legalization
The show started in the early 1990's and the solution summit series started on August 1, 2013. High Times Freedom Fighter Casper Leitch, the program's founder, high host and producer, courageously began the hemp solution summit conversation on his historic broadcast with medical marijuana activist and author Todd McCormick and industrial hemp and medical marijuana clinics pioneer Paul Stanford.
Casper began by saying that for decades he has been listening to all the excuses for why hemp is not yet legal, or exposing the lie that there is not enough study done on medical marijuana or reporting on the horrors of people being murdered or jailed for decades for interacting with a plant. He conveyed enough is enough and began the conversation of the why and how to implement the hemp solution. The series of guests, as usual are extraordinary, to say the least.
The shows are broadcast on both American Freedom Radio and now on the Time4Hemp site live and archived.
Here's what happened after the series started.
On August 8th came the story "Eric Holder May Release Sweeping Drug Sentencing Proposal, Admits Current Practices Are Discriminatory"
Why I changed my mind on weed
By Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta is a neurosurgeon and CNN's chief medical correspondent.
"Long before I began this project, I had steadily reviewed the scientific literature on medical marijuana from the United States and thought it was fairly unimpressive. Reading these papers five years ago, it was hard to make a case for medicinal marijuana. I even wrote about this in a TIME magazine article, back in 2009, titled "Why I would Vote No on Pot." I apologize because I didn't look hard enough, until now. I didn't look far enough. I didn't review papers from smaller labs in other countries doing some remarkable research, and I was too dismissive of the loud chorus of legitimate patients whose symptoms improved on cannabis.
Instead, I lumped them with the high-visibility malingerers, just looking to get high. I mistakenly believed the Drug Enforcement Agency listed marijuana as a schedule 1 substance because of sound scientific proof. Surely, they must have quality reasoning as to why marijuana is in the category of the most dangerous drugs that have "no accepted medicinal use and a high potential for abuse." They didn't have the science to support that claim, and I now know that when it comes to marijuana neither of those things are true. It doesn't have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works. Take the case of Charlotte Figi, who I met in Colorado. She started having seizures soon after birth. By age 3, she was having 300 a week, despite being on seven different medications. Medical marijuana has calmed her brain, limiting her seizures to 2 or 3 per month.""

Again, thank you Casper Leitch, the Time4Hemp production, joint host and guest team for calling the solution summit this month. Your show on August 1, 2013 marked what may be considered a most amazing and the final push for now being the time the drug war died.
Though there is continued excellent programming on the show Monday - Friday on both the Time4Hemp site and American Freedom Radio, I cannot urge you enough to take Time4Hemp 9a-11a PT / 12n-2p ET for the final segment of this historic series on Friday, August 31, 2013.
Soon hempsters all over the world will be resounding Dr. King's cry 'FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST, THANK GOD ALMIGHTY, WE ARE FREE AT LAST.' Truth is setting us free.
