Hemp prohibition

We must repeal, the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, which includes the Hemp prohibition from all States!

We need your help to remove the barriers to HEMP production.

According to Russ: The HEMP plant could be America’s greatest natural; resource!

HEMP is a trillion dollar crop that we are completely ignoring.

HEMP is God’s greatest plant resource on earth, but it is a major problem to the alcohol, chemical, lumber and oil industries.  They spent millions paying lobbyist, influencing legislators to suppress the truth to keep HEMP illegal to grow.

Sherman Williams (Paint Co)  testified before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.

The super-rich had conspired to spread misinformation about the extremely versatile plant that, if used properly, would ruin their companies.

 

You may be wondering what is the difference between Marijuana and Hemp?

The difference is in its use.   Hemp and Marijuana both come from the same plant.  However, it is from a different variety, or subspecies that contains many important differences.

 

The term ‘Hemp’ commonly refers to the industrial/commercial use of the cannabis stalk and seed for textiles, foods, papers, body care products, detergents, plastics and building materials.

Hemp farms againThe truth is, if HEMP; cannabis was utilized for its vast array of commercial products; it would eventually devastate the profits of the supper rich.

The organizations that benefit the most through the prohibition of marijuana are the drug cartels. They lobby to keep these laws in place because they can’t exist without them.

The Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 effectively made possession or transfer of cannabis, including, HEMP illegal throughout the United States under federal law.

The conspiracy theory is that William Randolph Hearst and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division owned vast acreage of timber.  The Hearst Company supplied most paper products and stood to lose billions, because of hemp.

Andrew Mellon became Hoover’s Secretary of the Treasury. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.  Secret meetings were held by these financial tycoons. These men took an obscure Mexican slang word: ‘marihuana’ and pushed it into the consciousness of America…

 

 

Work this out, cannabisHemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to go.

Too many of the wealthiest and greediest would lose too much to allow the world to turn to this simple plant which can be grown almost anywhere.

This is just one example of how greed replaces common sense in the conduct of human affairs.

Cannabis can be planted so inexpensively and harvested so easily and has so many wonderful uses, that there is a huge lobby working against it.

Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first paper mills in America and it processed hemp. Also, the War of 1812 was fought over hemp.  In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down.  Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were in the works to implement such programs.

Hemp plastic is another important product .  Hemp plastic is a bioplastic made using industrial hemp. There are many different types of hemp plastic; from standard plastics reinforced with hemp fibers, to a 100% hemp plastic made entirely from the hemp plant.

Hemp plastic is recyclable and can be manufactured to be 100% biodegradable.  The most common type of hemp plastics are those plastics which infuse hemp fibers.

The benefit of infusing hemp fibers lies in that less plastic is used (less oil, less pollution) and a more durable, biodegradable product is created. Sometimes, the oil used in conventional plastics can also be replaced with renewable resource feed stocks including cellulose from hemp, microbiological polymers, or those extracted from starch.

 

Hemp plastic is five times stiffer and 2.5 times stronger than polypropylene (PP) plastic.  It also does not pose the health and safety risks associated with certain plastics that are reinforced with glass fibers.

Hemp plastic has the ability of being implemented in standard injection molding machines with no modifications needed. Current research into this field has produced fire-retardant products.

HEMP is a renewable resource…

Here is just a few, of hundreds of products that can be made from HEMP:

Comparing Cotton to Hemp:

• Annually, 1 acre of hemp can produce as much fiber as 2 to 3 acres of cotton.

• Cotton grows only in moderate climates and requires more water than hemp.

• Hemp fiber is stronger and softer than cotton.

• Hemp lasts twice as long as cotton and will not mildew.

• Hemp is frost tolerant and requires only moderate amounts of water.

• Hemp can grow in all 50 states.

• Cotton uses around 50% of the world’s pesticides and herbicides in its production, as hemp requires no pesticides, no herbicides, and only moderate amounts of fertilizer.

On an annual basis, 1 acre of HEMP will produce as much paper as 2 to 4 acres of trees.

HEMP can be made into, twine and cordage, everything from the finest hemp beading twine, to baling twine and twisted cord.

Many types of paper products can be produced from the HEMP plant, including tissue paper and cardboard. The quality of HEMP paper is superior to all tree-based paper.

• HEMP paper will last decades without degrading.

• HEMP can be recycled many more times than tree-based paper.

• HEMP requires a great deal less toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process.

• HEMP can be used to produce fiberboard and is much stronger and lighter than wood.

• Substituting HEMP fiberboard for timber would further reduce the need to cut down our forests.

• HEMP can be used to produce strong, durable and environmentally-friendly plastic substitutes.

• Thousands of products made from petroleum-based plastics can be produced from HEMP based composites.

It takes many years for trees to grow until they can be harvested for paper or wood products,

HEMP is ready for harvesting in only 120 days after it is planted.

Forests and tree farms require large tracts of land which is only available in few locations; Hemp can grow on most land suitable for farming.

Employ americans hemp farmersSubstituting HEMP for trees would eliminate erosion due to logging, thereby reducing topsoil loss and water pollution which causes soil runoff.

Food:

• HEMP seeds contain a protein that is more nutritious and more economical to produce than soybean protein.

• HEMP seeds are not intoxicating.

• HEMP seed protein can be used to produce virtually any product made from soybean such as, butter, cheese, ice cream, milk, salad oils, tofu, veggie burgers, etc.

• HEMP seed can also be ground into nutritious flour that can be used to produce baked goods such as cookies, breads and pasta.

Fuel:

• HEMP seed oil can be used to produce non-toxic diesel fuel, just as corn can be converted into clean burning ethanol fuel.

• HEMP produces more biomass than any plant species, including corn.

• HEMP can be converted into detergent, ink, lubricating oil, paint, varnish, etc.…

• Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937.

• 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935;

Henry Ford’s first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the car itself was constructed from HEMP, on his large estate.  Henry Ford was photographed among his hemp fields.  The car had hemp plastic panels and had an impact strength 10 times stronger than steel.

The Mechanical Engineering Magazine (Feb. 1938) published an article entitled ‘The Most Profitable and Desirable Crop that Can be Grown.’ It stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th Century technology, it would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world.

Hemp cultivation and production do not harm the environment. The USDA Bulletin #404 concluded that hemp produces 4 times as much pulp with at least 4 to 7 times less pollution.

‘It has a short growing season…It can be grown in any state…The long roots penetrate and break the soil to leave it in perfect condition for the next year’s crop. The dense shock of leaves, 8 to 12 feet above the ground, chokes out weeds.
