Pure, Natural Coca Leaf – A Healing Gift Of The Divine Plant

An Old US Tradition Comes Alive Again

Leave a comment

“On February 8, 2015, North Korea test fired five of what it termed “cutting edge” anti-ship missiles. … the successful testing of anti-ship missiles at a range of 200 km, as reported by South Korea’s defense ministry, is a development of note but not of alarm.”

“The Diplomat” Feb., 2015“

“North Korea threatened the US with “merciless” attacks if an aircraft carrier strike group led by the USS Carl Vinson, which is currently taking part in joint South Korean drills “infringes on its sovereignty or dignity”

Reuters, March 2017

The North Korean anti-ship missile is a sea-skimming, high speed missile with a single-missile hit probability of 70%. The North Koreans have the latest Russian version (shown above) of these mothers. We don’t know how many, but with a single-hit kill probability of 70% how many would it take? (They are also land, air and sub-launched.) The USS Carl Vinson is a rather large target, and even if it is well defended, the only question in my mind is what happens when North Korea launches a swarm of Silkworms at the Vinson.

I think we’re going to see the first example of what many people have been saying – the US carrier fleet is an expensive, vulnerable and obsolete floating target. It is a US version of France’s impregnable “Maginot Line”, and the Silkworm is the NK version of the German Panzers, already positioned for the NK version of the German end-run through the Ardennes that rendered all that expensive French military “planning” irrelevant.

I am sorry for all the men and women who have been sent into range of this North Korean ship-killer, because I think that Kim is literally insane enough to launch his missiles at the Vinson and not really care what happens next.

How many wars has the US started by taunting “the enemy” with a ship or two and then using the attack as an excuse? It’s an old tradition among really stupid people who love war and don’t care about how many Americans and of course other, lesser people die.

Going down in a blaze of glory will suit Kim just fine.

I love creating, testing, and launching new ideas that work and that make a positive contribution to other peoples' lives. I love breaking trails and discovering hidden or new pathways, new ways of looking at special parts of the world, and most of all I love sharing what I find with others. I wrote the first Cannabis grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Marijuana” in 1969. Cultivators has sold over 6 million copies worldwide & is still in print in 2016. I'm very happy to have been a part of the beginning of what is now a true revolution. I created The Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company in the early 1980's and invented the American Spirit™ brand. My hope is that many people who chose the organic tobacco alternative have enjoyed smoking a more natural product and been healthier because of it. I wrote the first Cannabis extraction/medical edibles book “Marijuana Foods” in the early 1980's. While Cannabis extracts for medicinal use go back thousands of years, many people in my generation had not even heard of Cannabis butter. I was happy to share what I discovered through research and experimentation. I wrote the first organic Tobacco grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Natural Tobacco”. I know that in some parts of the country, growers are selling organic tobacco at farmers markets, and I still have hope that a networked collaborative industry can be organized as an alternative to the so-called "Tobacco Industry". I helped thousands of people to be better cross-cultural business communicators with the “International Straight Talk” video/CBT series in the 1990's. If you have the patience for some very old-style talking heads videos they are all digitized and online. A lot of culturally-astute people appear in these videos sharing valuable information. I re-introduced Coca Leaf to the natural medicines dialogue with “Panacea Chronicles” and “The Coca Leaf Papers” in 2010 – 2012. This is a digitized collection of core books on Coca from the 18th and 19th centuries, with a hyperlinked bibliography. I created this resource so that people could connect with Coca's relevance to core health issues in today's world through understanding its historical context. I just finished (2016) developing a market-disrupting line of Cannabis products for “Landrace Brands™”. I figured there was no reason a company run by people I care about to be just another me-too Cannabis industry startup, so we came up with a few surprises. I enjoyed this process and would like to do the same for other Cannabis market companies run by good people. I am currently researching and writing "Cannabis For Seniors: A Caregivers Handbook" to be published in 2017. I welcome your ideas for topics, and stories about how Cannabis has made a difference in your own life or in the life of someone you love. I am always looking for interesting new challenges. Is there anything that we should be discussing?
