This is the license application for Executive Order 12919 signed by President Clinton in 1994 by Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce In Hemp.
Section 101: Purpose. This application for Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp is encouraged as acceptance for licensing, for it fits the spirit and intent of Executive Order 12919, by supplying the raw fiber source of 50,000 known products which can be manufactured from Cannabis Hemp. Due to current Federal Marijuana Laws, no cannabis hemp is cultivated in the United States. All cannabis hemp products, & fibers are imported into the United States, making the nation quite vulnerable during times of national emergency.
Section 102: Policy. To ensure national security, Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp would desire to cultivate cannabis hemp. To exploit the cannabis hemp plant for its economic value in products of protein, fiber, fuel, paper, plastics, building materials, and medicine. Presently all cannabis hemp products & fibers are imported into the United States. France is currently subsidizing the French hemp farmer $400.00 per acre. Thirty seven other countries are cultivating and exploiting cannabis hemp for it's environmental, economic value. Some of these cultivating countries are the United Kingdom, Italy, Holland, France, Germany, Hungry, Afghanistan, Russia, China, Australia, Japan, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Jamaica, Bolivia, & Philippines to examine a few.
Section 103: General Functions: Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp qualifies for cannabis hemp licensing and exploration due to the lack of present cultivation in the United States. Thus leaving the United States void of domestic hemp cultivation, severely handicapping the American farmer, and retarding the inventive genius to produce the equipment necessary to process cannabis hemp. With other countries world wide enjoying millennium of experiencing the art of cultivation, the United States is clearly failing to maintain a solid economic base as laid out by Thomas Payne in his book "Common Sense". (a) Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp can identify requirements essential for civilian, and industrial demand.
(b) Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp through the production and cultivation of cannabis hemp can assess continually the capability of the domestic industrial and technological base to satisfy requirements in peacetime and time of national emergency. Through the extensive data base retained in the Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp library, answers to questions specifically evaluating the availability of adequate industrial resource and production sources, including subcontractors and suppliers, materials, skilled labor, and professional and technical personnel, are immediately accessible nation wide.
(c) Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp desires licensing in able to empower the United States to be prepared in the event of a potential threat to the national security. Through licensing and the promotion of cannabis hemp cultivation, Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp will be able to take actions necessary to ensure Kansas farmers maximize their efforts to provide the availability of adequate industrial resources and production capability, including services and critical technology for national defense requirements.
(d) Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp will strive to improve the efficiency and responsiveness to defense requirements of the domestic industrial base, andeducational organization for farmers, & industrialists through licensing and exploration of cannabis hemp for its protein, paper, fiber, fuel, fiber board, plastic, & medicinal values will foster cooperation between the defense and commercial sectors for research and development and for acquisition of materials, components and equipment to enhance industrial base efficiency and responsiveness.
Section 104. Implementation: Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp urges the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, the Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the National Security Council to identify the immediate necessity to cultivate cannabis hemp in the United States, to acquire fertile seeds; to acquire land to achieve this purpose; and to develop the machinery and equipment necessary to enable the United States to compete globally with cannabis hemp cultivation and exploration. Presently the United States imports all its cannabis hemp fiber, textiles, oils, and sterilized seeds. In 1994 France subsidized the French Hemp Farmer $400. an acre to expedite it's global edge in fiber board production.
Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp has devoted the last three years to educating the farmers in Kansas as to the economic value of energy farming, lobbying the Kansas State Legislature regarding changing of Kansas State Law allowing the industrial exploration of cannabis hemp. Identifying the business who would benefit most and help cannabis hemp to be restored to its previous place of honor in American history. In Kansas there is investment capital available to build textile mills, fiber board production, and seed processing for oils and protein. Kansas is also the home to exceptional innovators striving to make alternative fuels, through energy farming to benefit the farmers and the environment.
Part II - PRIORITIES AND ALLOCATIONS
Delegations of Priorities and Allocations: Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp is ideally suited for the intent of Executive Order 12919 of June 3, 1994, and would like to make application for consideration for licensing, including funds for development of this long ignored economic corner stone, most beneficial to our environment, through the following departments:
(1) The Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp ask the Secretary of Agriculture to acknowledge that the nutritional values of cannabis hemp are: The oil in the hemp seed is very rich in both essential fatty acids (EFA's), the twice unsaturated linoleic acid (LA, 18:2w6) and the three times unsaturated linolenic acid (LNA, 18:3W3), both of which are necessary for physical health. Hemp seed oil is the richest of all food sources of LNA, contain between 50 and 60% of this fatty acid. It contains between 15 and 25% LA. The remainder of the oil is about 18% of the once unsaturated oleic acid (a8:aw9), and about 10% saturated fatty acids (16:0 and 18:0) neither of which are essential, although all oil contain them. Cannabis hemp is also high in fiber, mucilage, minerals, and vitamins. According to one laboratory analysis, 100 grams of hemp seed contains: 74g potassium, .75g phosphorus, .38g magnesium, .21g calcium, .21g sulphur, .046g sodium, .043 chlorine, .0077g iron, .0057g zinc, and adequate trace amounts of manganese, silicon, copper, florine, aluminum, nickel, cobalt, iodine, molybdenum, and chromium. Other trace minerals are selenium and vanadium. Besides this almost complete array of minerals, the hemp seed also contains the fat-soluble vitamins E, A, which are powerful antioxidants, vitamine D, B1, B2, and C. (2) The Secretary of Energy with respect to Energy Farming, or the production of fuel from an agricultural crop. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp has developed friendly relationships with State of Kansas Alternative Fuel Directors, alternative fuel supporters, and alternative fuel producers. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp is aware that presently no machinery is available to facilitate the production of fuel from cannabis hemp which produces 3,000 gallons of fuel per acre of varying varieties such as: methanol, butane, ethanol, diesel, and briquettes. This technology is in development in the state of Kansas, but lacks public, government financing, and awareness to the environmental benefits of energy farming to reduce the accumulative effects of CO2 gases in our atmosphere, the common term referred to as Greenhouse Effect, and to enable our delicate O-zone layer to restore itself. With only 6% of the land in the United States planted in cannabis hemp, producing 30 tons of bio-mass per acre, our nation could be fuel independent. (3) The Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp request the Secretary of Health & Human Services to acknowledge that many of our evasive health problems are long time results of nutritional deficiency. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp ask the Secretary of Health & Human Services to consider its response to the Secretary of Agriculture in Executive Order 12919 of June 3, 1994; Part II; Section 201; number 1, and encourage treatment for medical responsive conditions such as: Glaucoma, Asthma, Tumors, Nausea, Cancer Therapy, Epilepsy, Antibacterial CBD Disinfectants, Herpes, Cystic Fibrosis, Lung Expectorant, Relief for Stress and Migraines, Insomnia, Alzheimer's, PMS, Multiple Sclerosis, Arthritis, Rheumatism, Therapeutic Emphysema, HIV, & AIDS. (6) The Secretary of Commerce for all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp requests the Secretary of Commerce to acknowledge there are 50,000 known products that can be manufactured from cannabis hemp. Presently 37 countries across the planet are cultivating cannabis hemp for its protein, paper, fiber, fuel, plastics, & medicine. In 1994 France subsidized the French Farmer $400. per acre to cultivate cannabis hemp. All cannabis hemp is presently imported into the United States in products of cloth & clothing, sterilized seeds, oil, & paper. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp desires to cultivate cannabis hemp to exploits these products within the boundaries of the United States to ensure our national economic stability. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp has accumulated the individual genius to accomplish these goals. We have assembled tool and die makers, machinery engineers, chemists, and entrepreneurs from varying fields to assist in full experimentation, & exploration of cannabis hemp in order to most benefit economically, and environmentally from this most bounteous crop. One acre of cannabis hemp will produce in paper pulp the equivalent of 4.2 acres of trees. Cannabis hemp with 30 tons of bio-mass per acre will produce 3,000 gallons of fuel. Cannabis hemp also produces fine cloth, & oils. Cannabis hemp is also the most nutritional plant on the planet earth. In American history, cannabis hemp was used as a rotating crop to control weeds.
Section 202. Determinations:
(b) Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp requests the Secretary of Defense in the respects to stockpiling consider our organization for aiding the national security of the United States by cultivating cannabis hemp, recognize and inspire necessary machinery and equipment production required for manufacturing of products from this plant. Presently there are no stockpiles or cannabis hemp, nor farm equipment, nor skilled labor, nor pyrolethic converters necessary for fuel production, nor textile mills, nor paper mills, nor fiberboard for inexpensive durable construction needs. Presently there is no industrious effort being extended to exploit cannabis hemp as there is in 37 other major countries on planet Earth. Due to our dependence on foreign sources to answer our cannabis hemp needs, Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp requests the Secretary of Defense to enhance the economic stability of Kansas by providing them with the authorization, and financial resources to lead their state toward economic growth and energy solvency.
Section 203. Maximizing Domestic Energy Supplies:
Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp request the Secretary of Commerce through the authority of the President, whom retains authority to redelegate to the Secretary of Energy findings described in Section 104, Part II (1)(2)(3)(6) are critical and essential. Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp request the Secretary of Commerce to make the finding described in subsection 101(c) (2) (A) of the Act that the materials (including equipment), services, or facilities are scarce, non existent, and the finding described in subsection 101(c)(2)(B) that it is necessary to use the authority provided by subsection 101(c)(1).
PART III - EXPANSION OF PRODUCTIVE CAPACITY AND SUPPLY
Section 301. (a) Financing Institution Guarantees. (b) Direct Loan Guarantees: To expedite or expand production and deliveries or services under government contracts for the procurement of industrial resources or critical technology items essential to the national defense, Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp request each agency head authorized to make direct loan guarantees from funds appropriated to their agency for Title III; fairly and objectively, consider the following business plan:
The year 1995, will mark the end of the initial Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp (KECH) five year plan designed to win widespread support for our four goals:
Restore industrial hemp to the world economy Recognize medical marijuana by prescription Respect personal choice for adults in private Regulate a market for legal adult cannabis use
KECH has met many of its interim objectives. These include: reintroducing the word hemp to the American vocabulary creating a positive, holistic image of the plant vis-à-vis literature such as "Hemp, The Environmental Solution To Global Abuse", by Debby Moore 1992, etc.. promoting the industrial, horticultural, nutritional and medical value of the hemp plant identifying hemp products that are still legal and making them available to the public. expanding our base of public support to include environmentalists, economists, farmers, health care workers, ect. reviving the domestic hemp industry stimulating localized community activity for hemp reform reviving the U.S. prohibition debate framing the global debate on hemp reform supporting specific reform legislation balancing the media's attitude toward the plant, ect.
The right to farm industrial hemp has since been restored in Australia, Britain, and, soon, in Canada. Spain and Holland both retain the right to consume cannabis in the home. Italy relegalized personal use and released 1000 people from prison. In 1994 Germany, Switzerland, and Columbia have all ended their criminal penalties on cannabis use.
While KECH admittedly has not yet won full relegalization of cannabis in Kansas, or America, however, it is clear that the situation here has changed dramatically since 1990. Our vision of many new hemp businesses and products is now a reality that needs a more sophisticated focus of attention, promotion, support, and cooperation. It is now time to reorganize KECH and refine its activities with a program to carry us through relegalization and into the next millennium. We visualize at least four categories for coordinated participation:
Recognition, and education of the Cannabonid Recepter in 1992Anandamide in 1993 will vastly change public opinion of Cannabis, creating a new commercial market. Corporate hemp industry sponsors, with assessed annual dues. Cottage industries, with nominal dues or service fees. Community representatives, supported with literature and promotional items we make available for fundraising.
We will continue to promote and encourage all legal commercial and ecological uses of hemp and to expand on its known uses. We hope to reduce the arbitrary limits that have been set on the traditional right to produce and consume hemp products, including the pharmaceutical herb and its extracts. We intend to de- politicize the issue of personal consumption of cannabis by supporting the development of a community based network of regulated cannabis shops which will be allowed to legally market such products to adults. In so doing, we believe that we can eliminate the black market in cannabis drugs and restore a healthy measure of justice, free enterprise and prosperity to this generation of Americans and all future generations. KECH state lobbyist in 1994 & 1995 submitted a bill to the Kansas Leglislature intitled the Kansas Cannabis Crime Prevention Act. This bill covers many of the questions and problems that occur when reintroducing the herb plant Cannabis Sativa L to the American people.
Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp request the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, the Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Director of the National Security Council, the Secretary of Agriculture, the Secretary of Energy, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and the Secretary of Commerce recognize the bounteous rewards, economically, and environmentally for the United States to enter the global markets of hemp cultivation.
Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp in 1992 traveled through out Kansas visiting numerous county fairs to educate the farmers regarding the benefits of hemp cultivation and to identify farmers in the state of Kansas who are willing to experiment with cannabis hemp as an agricultural crop. Statistics cultivation. KECH has amassed three hundred years of research on hemp products, hemp production, and machinery necessary to renovate this centuries old agricultural crop. This information was obtained from the National Library of Congress, United States Agriculture Department, War Department Records, and the Archives of Harry J. Anslinger.
Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp request immediate Direct Loan Guarantees in the amount of $500,000. (Five Hundred Thousand Dollars and no cents) to begin the most meritorious project for the longevity, and industrial integrity of the Kansas, & the United States. KECH request permission & authorization to immediately advertise for, expecting state support to identify land owners where the indigenous Cannabis Sativa L Hemp grows in Kansas, and collect wild hemp seed. On December 22, 1975, the National Institute for Mental Health, Governor George Docking, Kansas Marijuana Steering Committee, & Governor's Committee on Criminal Administration conducted research through Department of Agronomy, Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas. This research concluded that the Cannabis Sativa L Hemp that grows in Kansas is of the non- drug type. Contribution No. 1309: "Seasonal Fluctuations in Cannabinoid Content of Kansas Marijuana.
Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp would approach Cultivation of Cannabis in Kansas on an immediate four year plan. The first year KECH would identify land owners of indigenous Cannabis and request contracts to fertilize & water the naturalized crop of 1995, in hope to increase abundance of seed crop. KECH would hope to acquire enough seed to plants acreage's for seed in 1996 season. During 1996, KECH would develop a nutritional market for seed consumption. Desiring 1997 increased production, KECH would desire to develop retting tanks in order to 1) capture nutrients from the stalk and return to the earth; 2) use bio mass to supply steam fuel for oil pressing mill. During 1998 KECH would be desirous to increase acreage to supply demands of the hemp seed consumption, supply energy to its own mill, and supply a fiber board manufacturing company with raw material.
Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp acknowledges one of the more attractive advantages to this new industry is the thousands of new jobs, the manufacturing of new equipment, mills, plants, the dreams of fuel independence, which will become a reality, reducing the national debt, and stimulating economic growth within the core of America, benefiting the long ignored United States farmer.
Perhaps the most imperative reasons to regain large scale Cannabis Sativa L Hemp cultivation in the United States would be due to recent discoveries of the Cannabinoid Receptor in 1992, and the scientifically famous Anandamide's 1993. All other countries are rejoicing in this great new knowledge, and the United States has managed to keep it relative quiet while we have voters dying of leukemia because their Cannabinoid Receptors are bare, Cancer, Aids, and other nutritionally deficient diseases, restricted to wheel chairs, because we do not cultivate and make readily available to our citizenry Cannabis Sativa L Hemp, environmentally, or nutritionally.
Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp has scientific expertise in the agricultural hemp cultivation of fiber, cellulose pulp, and seed. With secured financing being imperative to the proper regulation and taxation of the agricultural hemp market to be regulated herein for the purpose of national security , financing is requested in the amount of five hundred thousand dollars and no cents.
(A) Each agency head obligated to expedite and expand hemp cultivation should willfully support the securing of a contract with the Kansas Environmentalists for Commerce in Hemp and the United States Government as authorized in the provisions of Executive Order 12919, Part IX - General Provisions, section 901: "Food Resources" means all commodities and products, simple, mixed or compound, or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption. "Food resources" also means all hemp.
