Chemtrails vs. Contrails
Reefer Madness was a propaganda film from the 1930’s that completely changed societies perspective of marijuana. Many films, news articles and other forms of propaganda have been used to create the war on marijuana, hemp and all forms of cannabis. This war has been waged on the users and suppliers of cannabis at great public cost and massive incarceration rates for minorities and other poor people. During this same time, commercial tobacco and alcohol companies heavily advertised and generated wide spread belief that their products were socially acceptable and healthy for consumption.
Today, perception of marijuana, tobacco, alcohol, and prescription medication is changing, as we better understand their effects and side effects. This synthesis of social perception is what defines modern societies in this ever-changing world; i.e. zeitgeist of a society. Corporate and governmental bodies often cling to the propaganda of the pasts that supports their interests, as we have seen in the movement across the country to reform marijuana laws. Is this also the case with climate change and climate engineering programs like Solar Radiation Management?
