Who knows if you can grow hemp (for industrialization purposes OTHER THAN SMOKING, SO MAKING IT NON SMOKABLE) without getting into trouble? (:
**FIRSTLY: I'd like to say that I put the question in environmental issues (it could have easily been put in general knowledge or politics) because I know how rapidly trees are disappearing everywhere, especially in sacred places of the earth, such as rainforests, for purposes such as WOOD AND PAPER SUPPLY or TO GROW CROPS FOR FACTORY ANIMALS THAT GET SLAUGHTERED BY THE BILLIONS PER HOUR FOR -SOME OF- OUR BELOVED FAST FOOD COMPANIES *FUCKING DISGUSTING.
Anywhoo, before this atrocious charade, SINCE THE EGYPTIAN TIMES!!! people did everything (and may I say - WELL!!! - ) with HEMP!!! Hemp is thick and strong and grows MUCH MUCH quicker than trees, being much more environmentally friendly as you need much less space to get a bigger supply of the hemp you need.
I'm not sure when exactly, but the big NEWS PAPER companies ruled hemp out saying it was a DANGEROUS drug, really meaning they would loose their jobs if hemp would still be in use (at the cost of the earth of course cause look where all the wood is going.. most of it in lungs and trashcans.. and that's just where the wood is GOING!!!)***
SO WHAT I'D LIKE TO KNOW, is there anyway to GROW HEMP LEGALLY ? .. would be my question (:
In the US? Nope, the laws are backwards and the politicians ignorant...
George Washington, our first and last great president, died of syphilis, and said, "make the most of the hemp seed, sew it everywhere"...after signing the declaration of independence, made from hemp.
The level of ignorance and stupidity encouraged by our political and social elite...generally means that we can't be as smart, as a group, even with all this technology, as they were 300 years ago.
Sucks, but one only has to consider the guy in Colorado arrested by the DEA over his legal, medical marijuana operation after being on TV for it...when Obama specifically said there would be no more raids, that they would respect state laws.
When Republicans were in power, they did the same thing...the federal government burns with greed to extend their stupidity over even those states who have embraced better (and older) ideas.
Write your congressman...that's all you can do.
Write to your local State or the Federal Agriculture Department and ask, it may be possible under licence
