The nuclear fallout from the tsunami forced nearly 80,000 people to evacuate their homes, not knowing if or when they may return. The 30 miles surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has been left contaminated and relatively barren. Even more disturbing, reports of radioactive rice, beef, vegetables, milk, seafood, and even tea have been found more than 60 miles away from the site, outside the mandatory evacuation zone.
Koyu Abe, chief monk at the Buddhist Joenji temple has been distributing sunflowers and their seeds to be planted all over Fukushima. The plants are known to soak up toxins from the soil, and patches of sunflowers are now growing between buildings, in backyards, alongside the nuclear plant, and anywhere else they will possibly fit. At least 8 million sunflowers and 200,000 other plants have been distributed by the Joenji Buddhist temple. “We plant sunflowers, field mustard, amaranthus and cockscomb, which are all believed to absorb radiation,” Abe says.
MARIJUANA IS ONE OF THE PLANTS THAT HAS BEEN PROVEN TO ELIMINATE NUCLEAR RADIATION AND WAS USED IN CLEANING CHERNOBYL SIMILAR TO THE SUNFLOWER PLANTS. THUS FOR THE RECENT NUCLEAR DISASTER IN JAPAN, CULTIVATION OF MARIJUANA IS A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE SINCE THIS PLANT ABSORBS THE RADIATION. IT IS ALSO VIABLE TO OTHER PLACES WITH REGARDS ON THE LAWS OF THE STATES AND THE COUNTRY THAT IS GOING TO BE PLANTED.
