There's a certain green plant with a reputation for its psychedelic effects and was known to help Bob Marley get through his days. Marijuana gets all the fame, but lesser known is its family member, industrial hemp. This column is about hemp's gift to us all – the latest material used to make eco-friendly products.

Hemp and marijuana are both members of the cannabis family, but have completely different uses. Industrial hemp has been used for industrial and agricultural purposes as an alternative to everything including wood, gasoline and plastic. Marijuana on the other hand effects the nervous system. It has been used for both medicinal purposes, as a pain killer, and recreationally to alter the senses.

In 1998, a study titled "Environmental Economics" found that hemp is very environmentally friendly and is a carbon negative raw material, limiting harmful carbon footprints. The hemp plant requires little-to-no pesticide and herbicide use, meaning it does not put any more chemicals into the ground.

Hemp is a woody fiber, more fibrous than its munchie inducing cousin, and is commonly mixed with other organic fibers like cotton or silk to make clothing fabric. The oil extracted from hemp seeds can be used in oil-based paints, moisturizers and plastics. Some of the most valuable hemp can produce are paper, textiles, clothing and biodegradable plastics.

China is the leading producer of hemp ahead of Europe, Chile, North Korea and Canada. According to Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, industrial hemp is legal in Canada. In 1994, Canada began doing research on the usefulness of hemp. They discovered that industrial hemp fibers and seeds could be used for various manufacturing purposes, and on March 12, 1998 hemp was legalized in Canada.

According to the North American Industrial Hemp Council, North Dakota, Vermont, Colorado, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, Oregon and West Virginia have individually passed laws that endorse using hemp in their states. However, growing hemp is still illegal under federal law.

Unfortunately, industrial hemp is not legal in the United States because many aren't aware of the differences between industrial hemp and marijuana. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, it is illegal to grow hemp in the United States without a special DEA permit.

"Many Americans do not know that hemp and marijuana are both parts of the same plant and that hemp cannot be produced without producing marijuana," DEA Administrator Asa Hutchinson said in a statement on the DEA website.

One of the ways hemp is different from marijuana is has little-to-no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it actually contains below 0.3 percent of the psychedelic chemical. This means hemp will not get you high, while marijuana, however, contains anywhere from 2 to 20 percent THC.

Known as "antimarijuana" among its proponents, industrial hemp will actually remove high doses of THC in marijuana plants if planted near them. If smoked, hemp will make the smoker sick due to the lack of THC.

In order to create a more sustainable country, endorsing and legalizing products that are more sustainable is a must. By endorsing and using industrial hemp, the amount of trees, fossil fuels and other unrecyclable products will significantly decrease. The environmental benefits are so great that a distinction between hemp and marijuana must be made.

Wow did popular culture and disinformation ever mislead the public! Hemp does not need any pesticides or herbicides.

Marijuana is hemp, there are strains of Hemp with THC that produce more biomass and seeds per acre. No Excuse Denying individuals Marijuana, Children freely buy pop and candy that kill people.

Was Canada a testbed for America so renewable hemp fuel will be suppressed like it is in Canada? I live in Canada that legalized hemp AND I CANT GROW MY OWN FOOD, I am sick and tired of paying ARTIFICIALLY HIGH prices for cannabis/hemp seeds. I work in a wood shop around cancer causing chemicals and paints that hemp would make obsolete if hemp seed oil prices were not artificially high! the canadian government only issues licenses to grow hemp if you have a minimum amount of land fixing prices and competition I can't grow my own hemp at home even if it had low THC or high THC. The whole activism to just legalize hemp strains with low THC AND to legalize marijuana for specific uses could have ended prohibition years ago instead so anyone can grow. Look whats happening with canada with proposed changes they actually proposed removing individual growers at home in favor of commercial growers and the government website tells people if they cant afford it to find alternative treatment! hemp industry is downplayed and suppressed by regulation! Legalized fraud making people want to be happy to pay artificially high prices for hemp? Socialism sucks, nobody should be limited by laws how many plants they can grow. The full hemp seed with the outer shell and not sterilized and processed is healthier food, seriously is viral marketing targeting hemp/cannabis to people who can afford it and who cares if prices are artificially high because I do care! If hemp was cheaper compared to meat products and other food that harvests less per acre compared to hemp then the public would be eating more hemp, its that simple. People avoid hemp because its expensive, I know people who told me that!

I have been censored by Americans trying to educating Americans about ending prohibition and how laws can be repealed making them null and void.

Not having energy bills is possible with renewable hemp fuel that can make Homes Energy Independent

Myles O'Howe - World Government Election Fraud 2012

We need repeal of an unconstitutional laws making them null and void and LEAVE the united nations
Regulate: to govern or direct according to rule
Control: to exercise restraining or directing influence over : (i.e. to regulate)
Tax: to make onerous (troublesome/burdensome) and rigorous demands on

Legalization sounds like the corporate takeover of the cannabis industry via government legislation
(over-taxation, over-regulation and over-control)

Definition of CARTEL:
1: a written agreement between belligerent nations
2: a combination of independent commercial or industrial enterprises designed to limit competition or fix prices
3: a combination of political groups for common action
Example of CARTEL: a cartel of oil-producing nations that controls production and influences prices



Ron Paul was inducted into the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity that is a leader in the fight against hazing, drugs and alcohol abuse. One ritual practice of Lambda Chi Alpha is CIRCUMAMBULATION. This is a common practice is found in the initiation of Witches and is practiced in Freemasonry.

Why would Ron Paul have an article Defender of Life - LewRockwell LewRockwell.com: "Honoring Pope John Paul II A Consistent Pro-Life Figure by Rep. Ron Paul, MD"
Pope John Paul II calls for a New World Order at the grave of Gandhi, as all religions walk hand in hand.
