It is ilegal in most counteries and only legal for the Marjana verity in some states here in the United states.
Yet it is the most universal plant on the planet.
1) Hemp is among the oldest industries on the planet, going back more than 10,000 years to the beginnings of pottery. The
Columbia History of the World states that the oldest relic of human industry is a bit of hemp fabric dating back to
approximately 8,000 BC.
2) Presidents Washington and Jefferson both grew hemp. Americans were legally bound to grow hemp during the Colonial Era and
Early Republic. The federal government subsidized hemp during the Second World War and US farmers grew about a million acres of
hemp as part of that program.
3) Hemp Seed is far more nutritious than even soybean, contains more essential fatty acids than any other source, is second only
to soybeans in complete protein (but is more digestible by humans), is high in B-vitamins, and is 35% dietary fiber. Hemp seed
is not psychoactive and cannot be used as a drug. See TestPledge.com
4) The bark of the hemp stalk contains bast fibers which are among the Earth's longest natural soft fibers and are also rich in
cellulose; the cellulose and hemi-cellulose in its inner woody core are called hurds. Hemp stalk is not psychoactive. Hemp fiber
is longer, stronger, more absorbent and more insulative than cotton fiber.
5) According to the Department of Energy, hemp as a biomass fuel producer requires the least specialized growing and processing
procedures of all hemp products. The hydrocarbons in hemp can be processed into a wide range of biomass energy sources, from
fuel pellets to liquid fuels and gas. Development of biofuels could significantly reduce our consumption of fossil fuels and
6) Hemp grows well without herbicides, fungicides, or pesticides. Almost half of the agricultural chemicals used on US crops are
applied to cotton.
7) Hemp produces more pulp per acre than timber on a sustainable basis, and can be used for every quality of paper. Hemp paper
manufacturing can reduce wastewater contamination. Hemp's low lignin content reduces the need for acids used in pulping, and
it's creamy color lends itself to environmentally friendly bleaching instead of harsh chlorine compounds. Less bleaching results
in less dioxin and fewer chemical byproducts.
Hemp fiber paper resists decomposition, and does not yellow with age when an acid-free process is used. Hemp paper more than
1,500 years old has been found. It can also be recycled more times.
9) Hemp fiberboard produced by Washington State University was found to be twice as strong as wood-based fiberboard.
10) Eco-friendly hemp can replace most toxic petrochemical products. Research is being done to use hemp in manufacturing
biodegradable plastic products: plant-based cellophane, recycled plastic mixed with hemp for injection-molded products, and
resins made from the oil, to name just a very few examples.

In 1937 Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act which effectively began the era of hemp prohibition. The tax and licensing
regulations of the act made hemp cultivation unfeasable for American farmers. The chief promoter of the Tax Act, Harry
Anslinger, began promoting anti-marijuana legislation around the world. To learn more about hemp prohibition visit http://www.JackHerer.com

Enojoy, it has the begainings of a hemp production plant. Still working on that.Washington Oregon Hemp Map
