PFNC: Official Warning re Monsanto

31 posts in this topic

I read today that Monsanto and other mega businesses are getting into the legalised canna-economy over the pond.

 

I predict: Soon they will quietly buy up existing "breeders" operations, especially those in the Femmed seed industry. They will buy up the Auto-strains too. Then, bit by bit, they will get the control of all Brand Names such as "Skunk" or "White Widow". End result: you will be dependent on them for all your seed. Your cannabis will be in their hands? Happy with that?

 

If you're not happy you must immediately do two things: 1) Buy loads, and I mean shed-loads, of the strains you prefer, in their Regular format. 2) Read up pronto on hack-crossing. Read all oldtimer1 has posted here about this. His insights and experience are second to none. 3) Start hack-crssing asap. Store the seed in your fridge/freezer.

 

Of course, I could be wrong. But I'd stake my wrinkly old arse-cheeks on my not being so.

 

This prediction/warning brought to you from the General's desk at PFNC.co.uk

 

Tootle-pip, canna-peeps; keep it green, keep it natural, keep it FREE!

Together ,all of us small time hobbyists have a big vault of genetics . Some fellas have more varieties than they can grow in one lifetime . Preservation is important .Every living thing we played with is a mutant and or from one clone . Cattle aren't normal ,carrots ,corn ,they're gigantic . We're growing cereals that yield 3x more than they did fifty or sixty years ago ,it isn't good though !

@cultivateur

Thanks for the links. But I was referring more to the legalised market in both North and South America, and also in places like Israel. The global medical, and legal recreational market is now truly vast.

 

@monkeypig

Who knows? With Monsanto and others like them, it would be no great surprise.

 

Call it what you will, fake news, true news, conspiracy theory. Or just plain obvious as the nose on yer boat! See above, and ponder ~ do you really think a market that big is going to stay with green fingered hippies or small scale breeders/banks? I've aways said that the entrance of things like Autos and Fems was a step to be seriously questioned. Sure, they have their uses, and their place. Right in Monsanto's pockets, man!

 

You heard it here, folks; a PFNC Special Alert, Scale 10.

i cant see anyone getting control of a plant that grows wild around the world, cannabis will still be growing wild long after humans become extinct

@hash72, you'd be surprised how many plants get controlled. You have, I'm sure seen the Monsanto track record and business affairs history. Given the scale of the current Cannabis market and its projected inflation, I can see no reason for Monsanto to ignore it. This is for several reasons. Firstly, people are either lazy and do not want to put in the hard work of selection, and all the other aspects of breeding; or they lack the physical abilities, and the space required for growing sufficient plants for a real breeding program. Sure, Cannabis grows wild in some countries, but most of the stoners that have the cash to create this vast market, do not live in those countries, so perforce must either become criminals like me, or dependent on other growers and dealers etc.

 

You can grow all sorts around the world. Take corn. Grows anywhere. But its one of the most controlled and regulated things you'll ever see.

The Connection Between The Legalization Of Marijuana In Uruguay, Monsanto And George Soros

 

 

 

This year, Uruguay, after a vote by the Parliament became the first country in the world to legalize the cultivation, sale and consumption of marijuana. Cannabis users can buy a maximum of 40 grams per month, provided they are Uruguayan citizens of at least 18 years old and registered in a public database. Their consumption is monitored by means of the quantity they buy per month in specially licensed pharmacies. Less well known is what the seed and genetic engineering giant Monsanto is doing to develop patented cannabis plants, and what has been the role of billionaire speculator George Soros.

Citizens of Uruguay may in the future every year grow six marijuana plants in their garden or in their home. These plants yield approximately 480 grams. They can also become a member of clubs, which may grow up to 99 plants per year. The step of the President goes back to the billionaire speculator George Soros. Less is known that Monsanto is already quietly at work to patent a genetically modified cannabis plant in Uruguay.

The role of George Soros

The U.S. billionaire speculator George Soros and the non-governmental organization whose board he belongs to, have played a pivotal role in that marijuana has been legalized in Uruguay. Apparently it’s part of a much larger global project. Soros sits on the board of the New York-based Drug Policy Alliance [DPA Drug Policy Alliance], the world’s most influential organization for legalization. His Open Society Foundation is listed as a major financial supporter. In the most recent Annual Report of 2013, the chairman of the Drug Policy Alliance boasted : “In Uruguay we played a crucial role, as we helped a public education campaign to coordinate. There was a close collaboration with government officials, activists, journalists and others, including President José Mujica whom I met with personally. ”

In fact, the President had privately in New York met with Soros, just before he was able to win the Senate for approval of the legalization law proposed by him. Soros and the DPA are active in Uruguay and other Latin American countries.

His Open Society invested $ 34 million last year,, of which nearly 3.5 million for the legalization of marijuana. In Uruguay, they funded the organization Regulación Responsable or “Responsible Control” that advertised with a nationwide campaign on television. Needless to say they were successfull.

Soros is also an important shareholder of Monsanto, the world’s largest producer of genetically modified seeds. And here it gets interesting.

Monsanto and Gencannabis?

Studies show that Monsanto without much fanfare conducts research projects on the active ingredient in marijuana, namely THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), in order to genetically manipulate the plant. David Watson of the Dutch company Hortapharm has since 1990 created the world’s largest collection of Cannabis seed varieties. In 1998, the British firm GW Pharmaceuticals signed an agreement with Hortapharm that gives GW Pharma the rights to use the Hortapharm cannabis for their research.

In 2003 the German Bayer AG then signed an agreement with GW Pharmaceuticals for joint research on a cannabis-based extract. In 2007, Bayer AG agreed to an exchange of technology with … Monsanto, both according to exchange the results of their research. Thus Monsanto has discreet access to the work of the cannabis plant and its genetic modification. In 2009 GW Pharmaceuticals announced that it had succeeded in genetically altering a cannabis plant and patented a new breed of cannabis .

Since the cultivation of cannabis plants in Uruguay is allowed, one can easily imagine that Monsanto sees a huge new market that the Group is able to control just with patented cannabis seeds such as today is happening on the market for soybeans. Uruguay’s President Mujica has made it clear he wants a unique genetic code for cannabis in his country in order to “keep the black market under control.”

Genetically modified cannabis seeds from Monsanto would grant such control. For decades Monsanto has been growing gene-soybean and GM maize in Uruguay too. George Soros is co-owner of agribusinesses Adecoagro, that planted genetically modified soybeans and sunflowers for biofuel.

Apparently for the powerful interests behind the legalization of marijuana in Uruguay it is about far more than they let us know.

Is Monsanto trying to take over the world of cannabis?

Monsanto Marijuana in a dispensary near you? In a plot twist straight out of an apocalyptic thriller, monster corporations Bayer and Monsanto are set to merge by the end of 2017 to form one behemoth of a criminal, er, chemical enterprise. As if that isn’t frightening enough, there is evidence that a takeover of plant medicine is next on the global domination agenda, with plans to bring Frankenweed soon to a town near you.

Monsanto has not and is not involved in GMO marijuana,” says Charla Lord, a representative for the deeply dishonest seed company. She further directs us to their website’s GMO answers where it is explained in even less detail that speculations about genetically modified cannabis are just an “urban legend.” Phew, what a relief.

The $66 billion buyout of agricultural giant Monsanto by pharmaceutical giant Bayer is the largest cash deal on record, and ushers in a new era of massive biotech corporate consolidations (also known as centralization of power and demise of humanity).

The perilous partnership results in an unprecedented monopolization of the world’s food supply (fake, GMO food), placing 29 percent of the world’s seeds and 24 percent of the world’s pesticides in their greedy talons.

Match Made In Hell

A perfect match-made-in-hell, Monsanto and Bayer enjoy many of the same activities, such as poisoning humanity and lying through their teeth. In fact, these two illicit lovers have been in bed together for decades, trading genetic mutation codes while exchanging recipes for their favorite chemical cocktails. Swoon.

Some of Monsanto’s most notable contributions to society are agent orange, DDT, PCB, dioxin-based pesticides, aspartame, rBGH (genetically engineered bovine growth hormone), Roundup (glyphosate) herbicides, and Roundup Ready crops (seeds genetically engineered to withstand glyphosate).

In just one of their many crimes against humanity, Monsanto was fined 700 million dollars for intentionally polluting an economically deprived Alabama town with deadly PCBs, which earned them this glowing review by the courts: “So outrageous in character and extreme in degree as to go beyond all possible bounds of decency so as to be regarded as atrocious and utterly intolerable in a civilized society.”

Not to be outdone, Bayer’s rap sheet is just as impressive as Monsanto’s, though perhaps even more sinister (surely not possible!), considering their genocidal connections to Nazi Germany where they supplied Hitler with the world’s best chemicals and toxins for warfare and gas chambers. The Nazi’s in turn lent them free slave labor for their work factory located inside the Auschwitz death camp compound. Bayer’s top sociopaths, I mean scientists, even moonlighted for the Nazis and were the very same people who performed the most gruesome human experiments imaginable.

In fact, German-owned Bayer (at the time operating under the flagship corporation IG Farben) was so instrumental in the Nazi war effort that the 1946 Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal concluded:

The Second World War would simply have not been possible without them. If the guilt of these criminals is not brought to daylight and if they are not punished, they will pose a much greater threat to the future of peace in the world than Hitler if he were still alive.”

And here they are, 75 years later threatening peace in the world with their deliberate poisons (see HIV-tainted products, heroin for children, Ciproxin, Baycol/Lipobay, and GMOs). But who could have guessed?

Both companies are also contributing significantly to the world’s rising epidemic of chronic diseases due to environmental poisoning through pesticides.

In 2013, the Global Burden Of Disease Study, a massive investigation on the propagation of chronic disease, revealed for the first time that up to 95 percent of the population is sick from a spectrum of chronic conditions, some apparent, some not, but overall progressing for the worst. This is unexampled in human history and has taken place only in the last 80 years.

Let’s just say, the Monsanto-Bayer merger sucks. Really, really, super sucks. But, when you have the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and every other government “protection agency” (yeah right) in your filthy rich pockets, sucking is of little concern.

Let’s Play Connect The Dots

Since words like “transparency” and “ethics” are totally foreign concepts to the Monsanto-Bayer enterprise, it requires a game of connect the dots to put two and two together. We can also think of it like a game of chess, as these heartless companies strategically position themselves all over the board (our world) to remove the opposition. (Maybe we should ask ourselves, who is the opposition? Please see agent orange, PCB, GMO, etc.)

Soros, Uruguay, And Legalease

We begin with one of the usual suspects, notorious billionaire pseudo-philanthropist, George Soros, a major Monsanto shareholder (Soros currently owns more than 632,000 shares of Monsanto, valued at over $75 million) and founder of the Drug Policy Alliance and Open Society Foundation which work tirelessly (i.e., spends a ton of money) for legalization efforts around the world.

The Drug Policy Alliance is credited with having a heavy hand in the successful legalization of the marijuana trade in Uruguay, as well as being a key player in U.S. legalization efforts.

“Monsanto is a publically held company and their shareholders cannot be put at risk at any time, so it has to be legal,” says Michael Straumietis (aka Big Mike), founder and owner of hydroponics nutrients company Advanced Nutrients. Straumietis constantly warns the marijuana community about the dangers of a corporate-cornering of cannabis: i.e. Monsanto marijuana:

“Companies like Monsanto and Bayer, they have the most brilliant scientists working for them. Uruguay is the perfect place for them to do their research where it is 100 percent legal and doesn’t put their shareholders at risk.”

OK, are you with me so far? Monsanto, through Soros through Drug Alliance Policy and through other nonprofits, is heavily pushing for the legalization of marijuana so they can enter the market all proper-like. This has already happened in Uruguay where their research labs are said to be located.

They need things to be legal (not to be confused with moral) so their upstanding, law-abiding shareholders, such as notorious eugenics and Agenda 21-supporting Bill Gates and Soros can rake in billions of dollars legally, and receive biased (but legal!) government grants and corporate tax loopholes. It’s all just so very legal, you know?

Got To Stop Your Evil Ways, Baby

“Bayer has bought Monsanto and Bayer is also a distribution arm for GW pharmaceutical,” says Straumietis. “We also know that Scott’s (Miracle-Gro) is working with Monsanto because they are a distribution arm for Roundup.”

As reported on Disclose TV, “Monsanto has long had an intimate business relationship with a company called Scott’s Miracle-Gro, which has been aggressively pursuing the marijuana industry in American states where the drug has been legalized or decriminalized. The company’s CEO, Jim Hagadorn, has previously expressed his intention to spend $500 million buying portions of the marijuana industry in the United States until he has established a monopoly in the country.

It is suspected that Bayer will have a role to play in this plan. The German company does a lot of business with the United Kingdom-based company named GW Pharmaceuticals which grows cannabis plants and produces marijuana-based medicines. This connection has naturally led to some suspecting that Monsanto and their corporate allies are intending to move into the European marijuana market.

Currently, GW pharmaceuticals is on a cannabinoid monopoly mission, applying for multiple CBD patents to treat everything from epilepsy to brain cancer. As usual, the FDA is giving them the go ahead on their scheme to synthesize and patent this powerful natural herbal remedy.

Monsanto Marijuana: Buy Up The Competition

A front group for Scotts Miracle-Gro recently purchased General Hydroponics, Botanicare, and Gavita. Other major hydroponics companies report they have also been offered takeover bids by Scotts Miracle-Gro, or its “Hawthorne” front companies.

Monsanto and Scotts are purchasing rare landrace cannabis strains from well-known marijuana seed companies.

“Two major seed companies in Amsterdam have sold portions of their libraries or all of their libraries to GW (pharmaceutical) and Monsanto,” says Straumietis.

Patents Galore

Here’s a shocker for you: “Pharmaceutical” company Bayer already owns more patents on GMO seeds than “agricultural”company Monsanto (nearly twice as many, actually). They even have patents for genetically modified trees for fake’s sake! (excuse my French).

“Bayer holds the patent for Crispr technology for plants,” says Straumietis. “That’s important because Crispr technology can go in and genetically modify the plant any way they want.”

Crispr technologies involves a slightly different process of genetic mutation where no foreign genes are used. However, it is still a genetic distortion and is very bad for health and environment. Corporations are hoping to circumvent GMO labeling laws and bad publicity with this catchy new name. Clever, eh?

As reported in Big Buds Magazine:

The corporate interests and immense political power of Bayer, Monsanto, and Scotts Miracle-Gro, enforced by the World Trade Organization and international patent law, could result in corporate ownership of marijuana seed stock, prohibition of cannabis growers producing their own strains, GMO marijuana, and decrease in the number of cannabis strains available.

The corporate goal is to ban individuals and small growers from growing their own cannabis so that we are forced to buy subpar mutated chemical versions sold as “pharmaceutical” products like Monsanto marijuana. At exorbitantly high prices, of course.

Monsanto Marijuana: People, Unite!

What can we do to stop Bayer, Monsanto, and Scotts Miracle-Gro?

Straumietis suggests the following tactics:

  • Make marijuana seeds and store them properly.
  • Boycott General Hydroponics, Botanicare, Gavita, and any other company that does business with Scotts Miracle-Gro, Monsanto, or Bayer.
  • Boycott marijuana seed companies that sell genetics to Monsanto.
  • Boycott anyone who sells Scotts Miracle-Gro and other corporate products.
  • Don’t use Roundup or any other product made by Bayer, Scotts Miracle-Gro, or Bayer.
  • Don’t use products containing GMOs.
  • Join with groups that oppose criminal corporations and GMOs. Go here for more information.
  • Read this book.
  • Grow your own marijuana, breed it, and increase its legality.
  • Learn about the beneficial uses of plant medicine.

Hmm this bit of an eye opener..

 

I always knew genetics where at risk with the fem and auto market. And when i thought of thc % being regulated by big pharma i was thinking more along the lines of strains had to be <x% for it to be for sale in dispensaries (anything over is rejected.) 

 

This would be tragic to another level if they was actually control the whole as the whole (if that makes sense.) Hard to get my head around, but to be fair i can actually see it happening, maybe i wont see it - but deffo see it as a possibility. I deeply hope your wrong though @Arnold Layne

 

eta: Maybe there is a possibility i will see it, as when things turn regulated- this normally when things turn for the worse, and that normally happens sooner than later.

 

To be honest i dont want to think about it. I know where cannabis stands in my life ;)

I will need 10+ lifetimes to grow the regular seeds I got. I remember thinking about this ages ago so then regular seeds accumulated quick lol.
