Monsanto And Bayer Are Trying To Take Over The Cannabis Market
Monsanto may still be denying it, but a growing amount of evidence indicates that they are trying to take over the cannabis market.
Back in September, Bayer agreed to buy Monsanto for $66 billion, even though it was voted the most evil company in the world. Many were not surprised by the deal given the fact that Bayer and Monsanto share a long history of involvement with Nazism and chemical weapons like agent orange which has devastated Vietnam since the war.
In 1898, Bayer trademarked the opiate diacetylmorphine, naming it heroin, and they became the first company in the world to mass produce and mass market heroin globally. At the time, the company falsely claimed that heroin was great for children and that it could serve as a harmless curative for coughs and digestive disorders.
In addition, Monsanto helped with the creation of harmful products such as nuclear weapons, saccharin, PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), Aspartame, polystyrene, DDT, Agent Orange, RoundUp (glyphosate), bovine growth hormone (rGBH), GMOs, and dioxin.
Monsanto has teamed up with Scotts Miracle-Gro in the hopes of taking over the cannabis industry, with Hawthorne, a front group for Scotts, buying three of the major cannabis growing companies: General Hydroponics, Botanicare, and Gavita. Jim Hagedorn, CEO of Scotts Miracle-Gro, said that they plan to invest about half a billion dollars in the marijuana industry.
Michael Straumietis, founder and owner of Advanced Nutrients, said that many leaders of the cannabis industry have been warned about this, saying that Monsanto and Bayer are sharing information about GMO crops. He added that since Bayer is partnering with GW Pharmaceuticals, which grows its own proprietary marijuana genetics, the logical conclusion is that Monsanto and Bayer intend to create GMO marijuana.
Straumietis also said that the United Nations has warned that the diversity of cultivated crops has been reduced by 75% during the 20th Century and a third of today’s crop diversity could vanish by 2050, as the global plant breeding market is dominated by multinationals that are stealing nature from us. This means that it is likely that Monsanto and Bayer will create a monopoly on cannabis just like they did with corn and soy, and might have the complete control over this plant as a medicine and for recreational use.
Millions of people have boycotted genetically engineered products such as Miracle-Gro and other Scotts brand products, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, and any companies that do business with Monsanto.
