Some facts about Hemp
    #4044924 - 04/12/05 11:29 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hoping it is all valid, but here is the list:

the first Bibles were printed on hemp paper

the first US flag was made out of hemp

the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence were printed on
hemp paper

an acre of hemp produces more than 4 times the amount of paper than
an acre of trees, and it grows back in less than a year

Henry Ford made a hemp-mobile

"Marijuana" is just the Hispanic name for hemp, they are the exact
same plant. (The name, "marijuana", was used by law enforcement and the
media for this "Mexican killer weed" to taboo and sensationalize it in
concerned American's minds.)

birds live 20% longer when hemp seed is a part of their diet

hemp seed oil has been used (and should be used) in everything from
engine oil and paint, to cosmetics and foods for man and beast alike

in the 1600s, there were places in the US where growing hemp was
enforced by law

you could pay your taxes with hemp for 200 years during the 1700s
in the US

hemp seeds have been a staple and a life-saver during many famines
and food shortages throughout history (over 60% of Third World children
are dying everyday because of protein starvation , but Mr. Government
says they can't grow it - it's against the law!)

there are receptors in the brain which science has found will bind
with THC compounds alone, and no other

The depletion of the ozone layer threatens to reduce soy crops by
up to 50%, but hemp is immune to the damages of ultraviolet light (it
actually makes it produce more of the resin that contains the THC)

hemp is a more prolific producer of ethanol than corn

hemp requires little to no industry, it grows in the ground
(cleaning the soil of toxins), then is cut, dried, and utilized...
(Does it make any sense that the government doesn't jump on this,
legalize it and tax the pants off of it instead of increasing
everyone's already-insane taxes to reduce the country's deficit?? Tax
pot!)

the plant simply rocks the spot



"And God said, Behold, I have given you every green herb bearing seed,
which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which
is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."
-Genesis 1:29 -

YEah, I did a big presentation for a science class on the value of industrial hemp and used almost all of those facts. :thumbup:

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Being illegal helps keep the seeds down in the stuff for smoking. Once Pioneer or some other seed company gets there hands in it to make a pollenless hybred to supply all the hemp farmers, I'm all for it.

They legalized hemp here several years ago, but as far as I know there hasn't been any boom in the hemp farming industry.

Once, men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free.
But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.
