Monsanto and Bayer Maneuvers to Take Over the Cannabis Industry – Should We Allow This?!
Monsanto: The very name gives food-conscious people the shivers in many parts of the U.S. and the rest of the world as well. Notorious for their continuous genetic tampering with various food industries (particularly soy and corn), this corporate giant has now set its vicious eyes on another area where they intend to make big profits: Cannabis.
Monsanto plans to take over the cannabis industry through genetic engineering that will serve as a weapon against independent cannabis suppliers.
Monsanto will do this in the same way that soybean and corn producers have been pushed out of business.
Despite convincing the public that they are not intending to expand to the cannabis industry, Monsanto suggested otherwise by purchasing the three largest cannabis manufacturers.
Perhaps you remember in September last year when Bayer, the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, made an agreement to buy Monsanto for $ 66 billion. Although Monsanto was declared the world’s most notorious company in 2013, its reputation continued to decline, but Bayer went ahead with the takeover.
The merger of these two companies has surprised many, as both companies have a long history associated with Nazism and chemical weapons such as the “Agent Orange” which was the cause of so many deaths in Vietnam during the war.
In fact, Bayer began its history with the failure of the infamous IG Farben company, which produced chemical weapons used to kill Jews during the Nazi rule. After the war, Farben was forced to split into several companies, including BASF, Hoechst and Bayer.
Shortly after the Nuremberg process, 24 executives of IG Farben were sent to jail for crimes against humanity.
However, it was only 7 years in prison after which each of them was released, and they began to fill high positions in each of Farben’s companies, and many of them started working for the Russian, British and US governments through a joint secret service operation Called “Operation Spider”.
After all these years, the Bayer company is now wealthier and more powerful than its predecessor, IG Farben, ever was.
According to the Big Buds magazine, Monsanto and the Canadian Miracle-Gro company have a “deep business partnership” and a plan to take over the cannabis industry. Hawthorne, a front of the Miracle-Gro commercial group, has already purchased three major cannabis production companies: General Hydroponics, Botanicare, and Gavita. Many other hydroponics companies also said they received a takeover bid by the Hawthorne Group.
Jim Hagedorn, President of the Scotts Miracle-Gro administration, even said that he plans to “invest, for example, half a billion dollars in taking over the cannabis deal …”
It is possible that Bayer and Monsanto will create a monopoly on cannabis seeds in the same way they created a monopoly on corn and soybeans.
Through great corporate power and the implementation of the international patent law, these corporations can gain complete control over cannabis (as a medicine), and for recreational use through the same model through which they control food crops.
But not all hopes are lost. There is still a chance to fight against the Monopoly Bayer-Monsanto by boycotting the genetic products companies that do business with any of them.
