Dan Fogler presents the second of three blog installments leading up to the release of Don Peyote.
A Little Green Love
by Dan Fogler
Ladies and gentlemen, I’m not here just to plug my movie Don Peyote (in which I smoke copious amounts of ganja) that comes out in theaters on Friday, May 16.
I want to talk about cannabis. With this miracle plant we can clothe, feed, fuel and heal the whole world – right now! But you knew that already, didn’t ya? I knew it. Hell! George fucking Washington knew.
I like to smoke it, vaporize it and eat it just as much as the next person. Smoking pot certainly hasn't halted our progress as a society. But society’s ignorance and fear have stunted our growth. It’s time to take action now before the damage is irreversible. It’s time to set our goals a little higher.
The legalization of marijuana is only one aspect of my political passion. I'm an advocate of THC technologies: creating a hemp-based society to reach for a new, green utopia. The cannabis marijuana can create jobs in fields across the eco- and geo-political board, from embracing it as an alternate, clean power source to utilizing its capacity for producing food and clothing. We can help heal the world.
In the film Don Peyote we offer up alternate solutions to solve the hard, life questions facing us presently. Perhaps the reality currently presented to us wouldn't be so daunting if we just took our collective brainpower and started thinking outside of the box and off the grid.
The undiscovered country is not in the rainforest or at the bottom of the ocean or on Mars. It’s within ourselves, within our mind’s eye. We just have to wake it up again to regain the knowledge we need to answer the questions threatening the future of our species.
Much love, peace and Viva la evolution!
