The sender claims to be from the planet Glyon. Of all my realms, Zaya is the most troublesome. I need more money, a lot more money, to bring Zaya up to what I would consider a minimum standard of living for my Zayan subjects. I'm collecting taxes and using the tax money to develop Zaya, but the process is agonizingly slow. One of the things that has been almost instantly profitable in Zaya is the growing of weed.
Weed is a narcotic and it's in much demand in Averon and also in Zaya. Wohn processes the raw weed and makes a drug that's sold via Dorond sources. The Dorond part of the operation doesn't exist officially, but does provide me with a great deal of advanced technology products, which I mostly sell in Corin for good profits. One day, a Zayan farmer manages to talk to me. He tells me something of great interest. He lectures, "You have people in Zaya growing the narcotic weed. The narcotic part of weed is mainly the female flowers and, to some extent, the leaves.
However, if you properly raise the same plant that produces weed, you get something much more useful than weed. The mog continues, "Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life. The seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, sprouted, made into hemp milk, prepared as tea, or used in baking.
SECOND CHANCE: KING OF GOLOMON
The fresh, non-narcotic leaves can also be eaten in salads. Hemp can even be processed into non-dairy milk, and for non-dairy hemp ice cream. I say, "So far, so good. You see the advantages and you want to raise the hemp for food. Hemp can be used to make canvas. If you grow enough of it, you also get the basic material for a superior paper. There must be some disadvantages. It'll grow most anywhere. It grows fast, shades out other weeds, enriches the soil and requires little or no irrigation.
If you grow a lot of hemp, it makes it nearly impossible to grow any kind of commercial weed. Why don't you just grow hemp? Plus, there are people in the areas where we would grow hemp who will burn the fields if we try.
To tell the police, who are in the pay of the weed growers, is to have them tell the growers of the illegal weed. To tell me, is to see that the growers of the illegal weed bother you no more. Then I begin to grow hemp. However, do you think that no one suspects that I and the other hemp growers told you? I deal with them. I then tell the local authorities that I'm having great success with the growing of hemp in the Moxon region of Averon. I want the farmers in your region of Zaya to also try the growing of hemp.
I want the local authorities to repeal the laws that make the growing of hemp illegal. The man thinks for a moment and says, "If the farmers in the Moxon area of Averon are growing hemp, why then the idea could have come from them and not from the farmers in Zaya. Thus, there's no reason to suspect that the farmers in Zaya told the King who is growing illegal weed in Zaya. However, we local farmers in Zaya still have to deal with those who grow the illegal weed. They're very powerful in our area.
