About the Author

Richard M. Davis Freedom Fighter, Feb. '95 High Times Magazine Richard M. Davis is the founder and curator of the FIRST Virtual Traveling Hemp Museum. The USA Hemp Museum, both the Traveling Museum and the resource website www.hempmuseum.org teaches the benefits of Cannabis/Hemp, as a medicine, as an industrial resource and for the private use by adults. There is also a private museum in my home brimming with exhibits in Los Angeles, California. An Arizona native, Davis graduated high school in Willcox, Arizona, joined the Air Force from Arizona, and was arrested for the first time in Arizona at the age of fifty-five on hemp related charges. Davis holds a Masters Degree in Biology from California State University at Los Angeles, and attended the School of Public Health at UCLA for four years under a US Public Health Service Fellowship. Davis has lived surrounded by hemp for forty years, the vast majority of his life. His introduction to hemp came, like that of many in his generation, from hemp smoke. He was refused the request to study the effects of pot at the School of Public Health at U.C.L.A., in 1972, where he was working on a doctorate in Public Health. He studied zoology (B.S.) and biology (M.A.), and loved the great outdoors. He took a leave of absence and never went back. After a dozen years in the mountains on a small farm, Davis ran for Congress in a democratic primary as an admitted pot grower. Several years later when the U.S. Army invaded that area in operation Greensweep, he found out about hemp from Jack Herer's book, The Emperor Wears No Clothes, and started the Hemp Museum, with help of course. We were first the Mendocino Mobile Marijuana Museum, a knock at the government that wants to call hemp the marijuana word in law, when it does not apply. With two card tables and one hemp shirt, we passed out literature to hundreds of Capitol employees and elected officials on the benefits of legal hemp and hemp medicines. When the virtual museum started, much of the site had to do with Davis' trial in Arizona. The virtual museum now contains more than 1,700 picture files and 18 virtual rooms, dealing with hemp in history, agriculture, textiles, plastics, medicine, rope, etc.

This is quite simply the worst book I have ever seen on any subject. It is disorganized, unedited, has poor sentence structure, and is full of typos. It presents numerous factual errors and ridiculous exaggerations. It is extremely repetitive-paragraphs and sentences are repeated as many as 12 times in different parts of the book. The images are terrible. The writing style is elementary.

If you want info on hemp, get any other book.

This book and the information in it is the answer to our economic and fuel needs in this country. The United States needs to wake up and smell the roses. Hemp growth and production of the products that can be made from this miraculous plant could turn this country around in a very big way. I give it 5 stars because that is all you allow I would give it a 10.

If you care about our environment and how hemp can help, this is a book that delivers.

HEMP FOR VICTORY A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION is a collection of papers and images from the USA Hemp Museum's 40 years of collecting by founder and curator Richard M. Davis.

Repetition of some sentences occurs because many articles do quote the same source as in including a line from Jack Herer's book THE EMPEROR WEARS NO CLOTHESThe Emperor Wears No Clothes: The Authoritative Historical Record of Cannabis and the Conspiracy Against Marijuana.

Here's HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION book's structure, which can also be used for classes.

Pages 1-66
Relationship between hemp and environment

Pages 67-119
How government policy helps or hurts

Pages 120-157
Hemp Empowerment tools

Pages 158-179
Industrial Hemp reports

Pages 180-230
1913 US Dept. of Agriculture Yearbook report on Hemp

History, to remain accurate, needs to be unedited when presented in original form first. Jack Herer's book is now in it's 12th edition. This book is the first edition.

The information contained in these pages show us how hemp can help us remove the excess CO2 from the air, serve as a clean/cheap/renewable energy source, aerates soil at least 6 feet deep due to the plant's expansive root system and many other environmental benefits. Now why would anyone not want We The People to know how much hemp can turn our world around by cleaning up the mess we've made of our environment?

Please buy and read the book, then act from the wisdom found in its pages. Enjoy the empowerment experience found in HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION.
