Versatile, adaptable, hit 'em with oxygen to help the planet reach equilibrium again. We come hallucinogenic to help you open your eyes wide and wise. Hold cures for pandemics you could devise if you only tried. We seem to hold the questions if you would just accept them and consider advanced forms of life you call plants ... advanced forms of life ...

Sinister and greedily, they modified what we eat, and did so genetically, these same companies. Now they call the food their property. And so they send in thugs and thieves, in some cases police, to destroy the food the people need ...
