Politicians and the upper tiers are now investing in hemp. Why is hemp suddenly legalized? So they can make money from it. If they aren’t getting the green, it’s illegal. CBD is having its big push as a wonder drug suddenly and it’s no big deal after decades of “we need more research” which we still hear the same claim, but now it’s OK to sell.
It’s always a sales pitch and half truths.

I would bet that some politician was highly invested in some company that made stuff like nylon rope or synthetic fabrics and pushed for Hemp growing to be made illegal

Stupid potheads, you can't replace oil with hemp to make plastics on any scale that matters.
Even if you have solar powered LEDs, unlimited space, robot cultivation armies and an endless supply of fresh water and nutrients it would still not come close to the cost of using oil to make plastic and as long as you recycle your going to create far more pollution with hemp plastic anyway.
