Why to Grow Pot?
“But there is something a little more significant about including cannabis in the garden than eggplant or peppers. Cannabis is among the oldest cultivated plants in the world, and while it’s long been prized as food, for fibers, and as medicine and drug, it’s been just as heavily demonized in the last century. Prohibition in the United States began as a racist, fear-based response to immigration along our southern border. In the latter half of the twentieth century, the War on Drugs led the United States to have the highest incarceration rate in the world, disproportionately locking up people of color – a statistic that holds true today. The US government has wasted billions of dollars working to eradicate a plant that has never killed anyone. While legalization poses immense economic challenges to the cannabis community, it is a step in the right direction. And as such, it feels important to include cannabis in the garden as a statement of solidarity and normalization. I’m growing weed because I can.”
