I don't give a ****. The laws have made the entire plant illegal, including for useful industrial purposes.

I totally understand why you're getting stressed out. It's like talking to a chair.

Your anger would make sense if you were in the industry when hemp was banned, but I know you were not, so the anger seems a little fake.

Actually, I have a shirt made out of hemp, it's my best shirt, but due to hemp being illegal it's expensive.

I think it would be great.

We could stop cutting down trees for many of our paper needs and it has a much, much shorter growing time and is also good for the soil. It could also be used for oil, clothing, rope, food and beverages, feul. It even helps clean the soil of toxins when its grown.



The Fore Fathers were big advocates for growing hemp (for practical purposes, not so much smoking). I can't remember which state, but at one point is was illegal NOT to grow hemp.


You would've been in jail in those times Finn!! For not growing hemp lol

They were also big advocates of travelling by horse and by foot, and living without hot water and electricity, and not brushing their teeth. Are you sure you want to dial it back so far? If you do, I can tell you there are countries which are pretty close to it.
