ALL SIGNS POINT TO A CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF THE MARIJUANA INDUSTRY BY BAYER, MONSANTO (Source organicandhealthy.org) According to Big Buds Mag: Monsanto has an intimate business relationship with Scotts Miracle-Gro, a convicted corporate criminal– and Scott’s Miracle-Gro is trying to take over the marijuana industry, In states where the plant has been legalized or decriminalized, Scott’s Miracle-Gro has looked to capitalize on the ever expanding cannabis industry. CEO of SMG, Jim Hagadorn, stated his intentions – spend up to $500 million to completely buy out the marijuana industry.
A Scott’s Miracle-Gro front group has already purchased General Hydroponics, Botanicare and Gavita: Major hydroponics nutrients, lighting, soil, and other grow equipment manufacturers report they’ve also been offered takeover bids by Scotts Miracle-Gro or its ‘Hawthorne’ front company. Maximum Yield Magazine, which bans marijuana hydroponics nutrients company Advanced Nutrients from its indoor gardening expo events, welcomed a Monsanto affiliate into its Boston gardening expo several years ago.
The German chemical lords do business with GW Pharmaceuticals, a company based in the United Kingdom that grows cannabis and produces medicines from its compounds. Bayer sells some of GW Pharmaceuticals’ products, including Sativex, a costly medical cannabis spray that’s reported to work less effectively than naturally grown pot. Both Monsanto and Bayer have a history of producing chemical weapons used in war and toxic products, including PCBs, DDT, Agent Orange, Roundup and GMOs.
Members of the cannabis industry have seen the writing on the wall in terms of the world’s seed monopolies’ interest in marijuana. “Michael Straumietis, founder and owner of hydroponics nutrients company Advanced Nutrients, has constantly warned the marijuana community about Monsanto, Scotts Miracle-Gro, GMO marijuana, and corporate takeover of the marijuana industry.”
