Source: ReLegalize.infoHemp and humanity have been linked for over 10,000 years. Hemp was one of the first agricultural crops, and remained the planet's largest crop and most important industry until late last century, when its cultivation was baned. Although technically hemp is not illegal to grow, it requires obtaining a special permit from the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). These permits are rarely given out and require that the crop be surrounded by security measures such as fences, razor wire, security guards, or dogs. While hemp faces significant legal obstacles due to its close relationship to the marijuana plant, most of the non-Western world never stopped growing hemp, and today hemp for commercial use is grown mostly by China, Hungary, England, Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Spain, Holland, Germany, Poland, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, India and throughout Asia. Other countries are working toward reviving the hemp industry. Allowing full-spectrum hemp farming would be a boon for mankind and mother Earth. The benefits of having a plant that can grow in almost any soil, with very minimal maintenance, and that can be used for virtually everything, might not be on the forefront of most farmer’s minds. Hemp cultivation is a cash crop enterprise that can be used by farmers to rotate with their other crops to enrich the soil, and harvest in around six months.
producing paper that doesn't require cutting down trees and pulping them with chemicals that pollute waterways
creating plastics that are strong and durable yet biodegradable without BPA and other chemicals
hemp produces four times as much fibre per acre as pine trees and a hemp tree-free paper can be recycled up to seven times, compared with three times for pine-pulp based papers
- hemp would be an ideal source of biomass for fuel, and hemp ethanol burns very cleanly
