KCHHI – Kentucky Cannabis Hemp Health Initiative

Kentucky Cannabis Hemp Health Initiative 2015-2016

Gatewood Galbraith and Mary Thomas Spears

Originally rewritten and reintroduced to the public in Kentucky in 2013, and again after some slight rewording and revision of the age restrictions within in 2014, after much consideration of the feedback received by those who reviewed it from the beginning = the public or the people of the Commonwealth.

The framework taken from the original Jack Herer Initiative 2012 dubbed CCHHI or aka CCHI2013… Originally called the California Cannabis Hemp Health Initiative by Jack himself, is an initiative I had the honor of having a personal hand helping Jack Herer to word with others after Ron Kiczenski and myself asked Jack to write it… As we attempted to redefining the cannabis/marijuana/hemp movement through selective wording, as this of course has always been the goal. While attempting to Free the people and better protect the plant, the farmers, the prisoners, our gardens and the people from the validating and mandating of over regulation, larger government, more prohibition and continued enslavement through the legal lies = legalize = “common words or terms used” they created to mislead the people into the Corporate owned industrial war on nature… Who ever said that they couldn’t Patent a plant and that, that is why Marijuana is Prohibited…??? Didn’t understand they have been doing just that for years now… Yes! even the Cannabis Sativa L Plant = Marijuana… through mutating or the separating of components… G.M.O.’s = {genetic mutated organisms} which equal “genetically mutated or modified crops “, seed and D.N.A. ownership through patent, small farmers being sued or enslaved, Big Business, Big Chema, Big Pharma, Big Gov… Controlling the marketplace. Including the Black Market, they created by dividing the Market Place through the Prohibition they have created and synthetics they have replicated. While they continue to build their Military Industrial Complex with our tax dollars, lives, … So it seems only appropriate I use it as a base to follow and put it fourth here with-in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. http://www.jackherer.com/initiative/ http://www.cchi2016.org/index.html

It should be noted that the only authority Congress was ever given in the Constitution is over Currency, the Market Place and War. At the same time, it should be noted that to create an unconstitutional statute or regulation in order to create a Prohibition in order to divide the Market Place and create War on home soil against unsuspecting Americans and families for more profit through the divided Market Place and competing forces… At the same time, they are being denied food, gardens, medicine, jobs, prosperity, enumerable inalienable rights and freedoms… Is an act of genocide and treason as I understand it all.

It also should be noted that the Supreme Court Ruling in Leary vs The U.S.A. = the Repeal of the Marijuana Tax Act and the Supreme Court findings that in fact Leary and/or the people had the right to utilize Marijuana un-taxed!!! Which includes the individual’s freedom or right to be under the influence or to “utilize or use” Marijuana under the Constitution = the Supreme Law of the land. Supported by the 21 st Constitutional Amendment Repealing Alcohol Prohibition and clarifying the individuals’ personal freedoms and right to be intoxicated. Just part of the Constitutional Argument attached to this Initiative through the evidence presented throughout this site’s pages in protection and support of it.

hemp…. Examples include plants being modified for pest resistance; lab animals being manipulated to exhibit human diseases, such as sickle cell anemia; and even glowing jellyfish genes inserted in a rabbit

for an art piece.

As Opposed To = To Clarify that there is a Recognized Difference between G.M.O. and Genetically Engineered

(i) The term “genetic engineering” involves isolating individual DNA fragments, coupling them with other genetic material, and causing the genes to replicate themselves. Introducing this created complex to a host cell causes it to multiply and produce clones that can later be harvested and used for a variety of purposes. Current applications of the technology include medical investigations of gene structure for the control of genetic disease, particularly through antenatal diagnosis. The synthesis of hormones and other proteins (e.g., growth hormone and insulin), which are otherwise obtainable only in their natural state, is also of interest to scientists. Applications for genetic engineering include disease control, hormone and protein synthesis, and animal research.

prohibition. To nullify, repeal and challenge the U.N. to end cannabis marijuana hemp prohibition which is a big part of the worldwide so-called “War on Drugs”, created to uphold the interest of Big Chema, Big Pharma, Big Corps, Big Business and their Synthetic Military Industrial Prison Complex and to uphold the interest of the people and its own Universal Declaration of Human Rights for the reasons already stated with-in it this Initiative and Site.


Due to the fact that the Commonwealth of Kentucky doesn’t allow you to simply petition your State Government as in most states. We ask that you Please print or copy, Sign, and forward copies to your local Representative in Congress and our State Senators here with-in the Commonwealth with a note attached reminding them they are paid to represent your interest and that you will not be forced to bribe them through their Lobby regardless of whether they agree with them or not.
