It should only be used for sick people in pain. I would not want a bunch of loaded people picking a crop I planted, just for fun. I voted Not Sure. I don't like people just Lurking around my Property.

Right from Alex Trebec.. the sails for sailboats are made from hemp, the word canvas derived from the word cannabis.

What can it hurt?

Of course it should. The versatility of hemp is amazing. George Washington recognized this fact.

The ONLY reason HEMP was outlawed in the 1930s was because the DUPONT family held a patent for a new product called NYLON, and HEMP was in direct competition and perhaps a superior product....Socialism for the rich...Capitalism for the rest.

DuPont, and other individuals and corporations worked diligently during the first few months of World War II to find a way to replace Asian silk and hemp with nylon in parachutes....it all goes back to guess what?...the military industrial complex that Ike warned us all about in his farewell speech.

China has 150,000 hectares of hemp acreages, soon to be a million, so the United States doesn't really need to grow hemp. Canada has a hemp industry and agricultural system in place, so they are years ahead in the logistics.

Russia grew hemp in the region where Chernobyl melted down and released radioactive clouds, and the hemp crops cleaned the radioactive soil in and around the nuclear power plant. It has great potential as a cash crop, but the US doesn't need to grow it, just those other countries who are capable of doing so should.

The US don't need no stinkin' hemp crop.

Only one good reason not to is in the southern states cannabis grows wild everywhere and could be a noxious weed. But if it is that prolific it would be an easy crop to grow and would need very little fertilizer if any and no chemical costs.

Anybody familiar with spurge wishes somebody would invent a good use for it too.

Cannabis and hemp were/are direct competition to alcohol and nylon/polyester....just another fine example of how are "FREE" markets work here in the land of LOBBYISTS....Socialism for the rich ...Capitalism for the rest.

i think the hemp is more of a fiber product and a person would have to smoke about an acre to get enough thc in the body to effect them it is how it is engineered.

Did the ND legislature not pass a law that should the Federal gov't allow for the cultivation of hemp we would allow it too. The Supremacy clause should take care of the issue anyhow.
