Hemp is one of the greatest natural plants and top superfoods we have here on Earth, as well as the earliest domesticated plant known. Having an amazing environmental impact is only the beginning of what this naturally growing weed can do for us. When digging deeper into the origins, uses, and benefits of hemp, we see that throughout history it has been extremely important for many civilizations. With hemp we can make paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics, some of the strongest rope known to mankind, clothes, Food, as well as Fuel and even Building materials! In the 1900's it was Illegal to NOT grow Hemp. The Government petitioned farmers to produce hemp then illegalized it once the way was over. Why did we allow this historically beneficial plant to be made Illegal again?!

Separate the classification that Hemp and Marijuana are the same in your mind. THC content in Hemp is around 0.3% while Marijuana contains anywhere from 5% to over 30%. You would have to smoke a joint the size of a light pole to get high; and by that time you'll be too sick to breath.

We need a Cash Crop like Industrial Hemp for this nation. It will provide jobs, bring in upwards of $300 Million, expand our ability to greatly reduce our enviromental impact and make stronger, longer lasting, enviromentally friendly products.

So become educated, speak up, and put to use the tools nature has provided us!

      Hemp is a natural and diverse resource that would make a major positive impact on the environment and economy if it were to be unrestricted. Besides that there is no reason it should not be legal, as it has no psychoactive properties.

      I think it should be legalized because its a plant grown naturally its like making grass or flowers illegal

      I look around and see that this natural plant has the ability, as well as a historically-proven track record, to help ease some current issues at hand. With the positive environmental impact alone you would think it's a no-brainer.
