Proposed legislation would make most gardens and farms illegal

Dr. Rima E. Laibow MD, Medical Director of Natural Solutions Foundation, urges First Lady Michelle Obama to intervene on behalf of the people; the White House should have vetoed the FDA "Food Safety" (actually, "Food Control") Act. Action item: http://tinyurl.nofoodcontrol

This proposed legislation would make most permaculturists, farmers, gardeners and bush regenerators criminals. Many native wattles (Acacia spp), an extensive list of legumes including the Leopard tree, Honey Locust, wisteria and cattle forage plants like Desmodium, wetland plants such as the Common Rush (Phragmites), and common pasture grasses (Phalaris spp), even the iceplants in your Granny's rock garden would be effected by the legislation. Having 10 of any of these plants would be considered a trafficable quantity and cause you to be charged and convicted with a federal drugs conviction and criminal record. Submissions need to be sent in before 11 March 2011 to stop this absurd legislation.

Please visit http://www.gardenfreedom.com/ for detailed information about the diverse range of plants effected by this legislation and information to help you prepare a submission. The site also has links to the proposed legislation and where tp send your submission.

What on earth????

Here are some extracts from the Garden Freedom website:
The Federal Attorney General wants to expand the list of federally prohibited plants. The list currently has 5 types of plants in which can be used as drugs. This is to be expanded to include hundreds (possibly thousands) of other species that are common garden plants and include a significant number of common native plants including our national flower, the wattle (Acacia spp).

The purpose of this new legislation is supposedly to stop major drug trafficking, yet many of the targeted plants have never been traded for drugs and have no value as drug plants, because they only contain traces of the compounds.

The proposed laws will make hundreds or possibly thousands of plants illegal. Many of these are common garden plants that honest, law abiding citizens have legally grown for as long as they remember. The laws will affect the commercial propagators, nurseries, farmers, collectors, botanic gardens, seed merchants, landcare groups and most gardeners.
  • Farmers may need to change their pasture grasses and legumes.
  • Gardeners, collectors, and botanic gardens will have to remove precious plants from their collections.
  • Landcare and dunecare groups may no longer work with the species they are used to and that are native to their region.
  • Nurseries may no longer propagate many of the plants they normally propagate.
  • Botanists may no longer collect samples from many plants.
  • Seedbanks will need to destroy many of their precious seeds.

Plants containing DMT - just one of the many substances in the schedule that occurs in miniscule amounts in thousands of plants.

All plants that contain any amount of DMT [dimethyltryptamine] will be prohibited, even if this is just in traces. The list of confirmed species is huge, but the number of potential DMT carriers is even bigger. DMT is extremely prevalent in nature and is likely to be present in thousands of species.

So what dose Joe Rogan say about DMT ?

If DMT is found in one species within a genus then it is likely to be found in other species of that genus. Below is a list of genera where DMT has been found, followed by a PARTIAL list of confirmed DMT carriers. The number of plants already confirmed to contain DMT is too large to list here in its entirety. For example, only about 20 species of Acacia (wattle) have had their analysis published, however unpublished research has already established the presence of DMT in over 150 wattle species.

Any number of species within these genera may turn out to contain DMT. You won’t know until the government seizes your plants and analyses them.

Senate Bill S510 Makes it illegal to Grow, Share, Trade or Sell Homegrown Food S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US.

It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food. S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming.

S 510 fails on moral, social, economic, political, constitutional, and human survival grounds.

1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or an ill-defined emergency. It resembles the Kissinger Plan.
2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security.
3. It imposes Codex Alimentarius on the US, a global system of control over food. It allows the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the WTO to take control of every food on earth and remove access to natural food supplements.
4. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security.
5. It deconstructs what is left of the American economy. It takes agriculture and food, which are the cornerstone of all economies, out of the hands of the citizenry, and puts them under the total control of multinational corporations influencing the UN, WHO, FAO and WTO, with HHS, and CDC, acting as agents, with Homeland Security as the enforcer.
