Every American Should Be Pissed
A few years ago I was going to get involved in the business of promoting the legalization of industrial hemp and was told by many that the process was underway. Woody Harrelson was involved and things were going to change. Well, they have not changed much! In fact, the new 2014 Agriculture Bill allowing some research is a joke. But, the joke is not funny. They are still treating a non-drug like it is a drug. This is just wrong!
You cannot get or make drugs from industrial hemp, period. You cannot grow Cannabis Sativa (marijuana) anywhere near industrial hemp because the cross pollination will remove the drug properties from it.
Listing industrial hemp as a drug is absurd. Industrial hemp generates oxygen, eats carbon dioxide, and is three times softer than cotton, ten times stronger and one third lighter than steel, and drought and flood resistant. Industrial hemp does not use or need fertilizers and pesticides. In a few months one acre of industrial hemp creates more oxygen than 25 acres of old growth forest creates in a year and has over 50 thousand uses. You can make automobile oil, cooking oil and gasoline from industrial hemp.
In 1916, powerful and wealthy special interests lobbied to make industrial hemp illegal to protect their businesses. The result, almost 100 years later, is a world-wide ecological disaster. Corn production for fuel (ethanol) and animal feed use fertilizer and insecticide by the ton. The fertilizer and insecticide runoff from farmlands to rivers, downstream to the estuaries and oceans, has so far caused over 400 "Dead Zones" world-wide. One of the largest is in the Gulf of Mexico – the Dead Zone in the Gulf is expected to be over 9000 square miles this year, almost the size of New Hampshire. Nothing grows there – we are fertilizing ourselves to death. Industrial hemp will replace the fertilizer and pesticide-dependent production of corn, reduce Dead Zones, produce oxygen and reduce carbon dioxide. So, you can see why some very powerful people and corporations do not want us growing it. It should be offensive to every American that we have created such disastrous laws, simply to benefit a few super-rich individuals and corporations.
I cannot do this alone. Our Association can’t do this alone. We need all of you to join us, on this website and help us move this forward. The status quo will not listen to me. But, they will listen when I tell them we are MILLIONS of angry Americans and that we are demanding change. There has never been an opportunity like this before where we can create a group of millions of Americans with one goal. We want Federal and State laws to reclassify Industrial Hemp as a non-drug. We want change and we want it now.
We have formed the American Hemp Association, to promote and support feasible, sustainable agricultural methods, industries and policies that are compatible with the interactive global eco-systems that maintain the air, soil, water and ocean environments that support all life on our planet. We are not affiliated with any political or religious party in any way. We are just an angry group of Americans that have decided enough is enough.
Every American should be very angry that Industrial Hemp is outlawed simply because it requires no fertilizer, pesticides or irrigation and you can make 50,000 products from it. And every year the Dead Zones gets larger and larger.
If you truly want to stop this then join us. United we can make a difference. Individually we can only talk and talk and be ticked off. United we can be heard. Join us now.

And, we will help farmers, manufacturing and also do what we can for the damaged waterways devastated by growing corn to make fuels.
