Re: Industrial Hemp And Marijuana.

Hemp resembles Marijuana, but it does not have the active narcotic ingredient, THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), that marijuana does.

We are having to purchase our hemp from Canada, which is too bad as it would open up another huge market in the US.

Hemp is rich in protein and Omega-3s and used in cosmetics, building materials, rope, clothing, auto body panels, etc.

I hope they can change this. America needs the product and the jobs.

Re: Industrial Hemp And Marijuana.

So would it be safe to say Industrial Hemp growing should be legal here,as I understand it is a distant cousin to recreational pot ?

Re: Industrial Hemp And Marijuana.

For the record, this is Gary Johnson's Drug Policy.

DRUG POLICY.
The reality is: Despite our best efforts at enforcement, education and
interdiction, people continue to use and abuse illegal drugs. I advocate
a Donít Do Drugs policy. I donít drink alcohol, smoke tobacco or use illegal drugs. But others in our society do. We mustnít turn a blind eye to the obvious parallels with Prohibition in the 1920ís Ė and the lessons our nation learned. Prohibition was repealed because it made matters worse. Today, no one is trying to sell our kids bathtub gin in the schoolyard and micro-breweries arenít protecting their turf with machine guns. Itís time to apply that thinking to marijuana. By making it a legal, regulated product, we can restrict its availability, curtail under-age use, cut enforcement/court/incarceration costs, remove the criminal element and access a multi-billion dollar underground economy. In the European countries where this strategy has been tested, under-age use has dropped Ė as has the crime rate. By managing marijuana like alcohol and tobacco Ė regulating, taxing and enforcing its lawful use Ė we will be better off than we are now. The billions we save on marijuana interdiction, along with the billions captured as legal revenue, can be redirected against the individuals committing real crimes against society. I do not favor the legalization and lawful distribution of harder drugs, but I believe their use should be dealt with as a health issue Ė not a criminal justice issue.

And this is Thomas Sowell's view, which is the same.

Yes, it would be safe. It is not recreational pot. It just looks like the plant.

It is illegal, at this time, in the United States to grow hemp. But, for your chronic pain relief, hemp is not what you would use. You would use Marijuana and I understand that three puffs a day will do it.

If I were in severe pain, I know people who could set me up and I would do it, illegal or not. I am a total wimp when it comes to body pain. Just not going to suffer if I don't have to.

Re: Industrial Hemp And Marijuana.

I understand Hemp is not what one would use for pain,nor do I advocate recreational drug usage,but alot of prescription drugs are out and out dope.But if a crop has industrial benefits then why it is illegal ?

Because it looks like marijuana and would be too hard to regulate, so they don't allow either.
