Promote Industrial Hemp
Hemp, the most environmentally sensible plant is used all over the world for its strong fibers and economic advantages. In the US public perception of industrial hemp as marijuana has blocked hemp from becoming a farm crop and a part of the eco solution.
End the stigma around the world’s most useful plant!
Promote Hemp Industry
The USDA reported in 1916 that an acre of hemp produced as much paper as four acres of trees annually, yet 70% of American forests have been destroyed since 1916.
Our imports of foreign fabrics and fibers average about $200,000,000 per year; in raw fibers alone we imported over $50,000,000 in the first six months of 1937. All of this income can be made available for Americans.”
