      Jan’s OP about hemp—

      https://www.collective-evolution.com/2012/12/05/how-hemp-became-illegal-the-marijuana-link/

      Hemp used to be used for many things: clothes, cars, plastics, building materials, rope, paper, linens, food, medicine and so on. In fact, it used to be mandatory in the United States for farmers to grow hemp if they had the land. There are plenty more stats regarding hemp you can find here.

      The fact is Hemp was very popular throughout the 1800’s and 1900’since it was incredibly useful for so many reasons. But one day that all changed, and now it is illegal.. so how did this happen?

      The History
      During Hoover’s presidency, Andrew Mellon became Hoover’s Secretary of the Treasury and Dupont’s primary investor. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

      Secret meetings were held by these financial tycoons. Hemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to go. This then led these men to take an obscure Mexican slang word: ‘marihuana’ and push it into the consciousness of America. The reason why they changed the name was because everyone knew of hemp and how amazing it was for the world. They would never be able to get away with banning hemp, so they used a name they knew no one would care about.

            One moment things will be fine, the next it is like you cannot do anything correct.

              Yes, I have posted and replied too everything with plain text to stories with links to stories with pictures with links the whole gambit successfully in different forums.

              Then for some reason, I have posted and replied too with everything from plain text to stories with links to stories with pictures with links the whole gambit unsuccessfully, mostly in General Discussion and Late Breaking News. It is like there is no rhyme or reason for things to go wrong the way they do.

                In the editing software there is some sort of monitor for foul language. It may not be for the admins, it is for the members. The group here in ver 3.0 and the previous group in ver 2.0 used this language from time to time, though it was not the main focus of our vocabulary. Now here in ver 3.0, this was presented to you in a thread by your monitors and members, it is happening, I tried it without thinking about it. Also, I do not think it is being used on this board knowingly.

                One thing that does seem to be apparent is, the longer the post, the more likely it will fail.

                There is a bug in the editing software of this board, now it is showing up with the admins.

                The bug just showed up in a simple text only reply. This is why there are three posting to your question.

                  searching through the many, many plugins to sort them out. I was able to post some naughty words yesterday to test it and had no problem. Will ask about that again too. I know we did not add anything to censor any words so I’m at a loos there–it might be different for mods/admins—but I kinda doubt it. Thanks for you input and clarification and please bear with us….

                  A few days ago, I tried posting (in GD) a Humanist video along with a couple of short paragraphs. I made over 20 unsuccessful attempts.

                  I decided to try posting ONLY the title along with the video. The posting was accepted. I then proceeded to ‘edit’ my post and added one paragraph from my original post. That also was accepted. I went back to ‘edit’ to add my second paragraph. This time, the board would not accept the ‘edit’. Something in that second paragraph triggered the buggy software’s monitor to refuse to allow that paragraph.

                  I’ve had many other posting refusal issues attempting to respond to others with continued refusal of my posts.

                    I will forward this on to DP and SFFH…interesting how you narrowed it down. It will be helpful in resolving it.
