Marijuana is the embodiment of the Divine Feminine. Say what? This is what you may say on reading that marijuana embodies divinity at all. However this is my belief, which I will explain. (Of course take my thoughts with a grain of salt. What do I know? I’m just the son of a registered nurse and a farmer.)
The cannabis plant has traditionally been revered, with many useful applications from agricultural to medicinal to spiritual. Providing nutritious food, potent medicine, sustainable fuel, low-impact building material and consciousness expanding herb, cannabis is a nurturer of humanity. It is no wonder the hyper-masculine, partriarchal corporate-government complex has dared to outlaw it.
In the title of this article I refer to marijuana prohibition, but as I will explain, “marijuana prohibition” has three distinct aspects: the prohibition of hemp in favour of less effective, more profitable (for some) agricultural practices; the elimination of the natural (ie. free) health-care offered by cannabis and hemp seed; and the suppression of the spiritual potential of cannabis as a consciousness-altering herb.
