I am 33, when I was a teenager, probably around 16-18, the government was till finding old WWII hemp fields in the area of Minnesota I lived in.
Drove 'em nuts.
They would show up with a caravan of dump-trucks and bull-dozer's, level the fields, move all the ripped up hemp to one central location, pile it up
and burn it.
Hilarious, the fire and ash must have been great for creating super-healthy plots of hemp
Anyway, my point is that there were STILL hemp fields around in my lifetime, so the idea of this plant as a crop in the USA is in no way far fetched.
The time is long past that we revolt against the industrial-complex(es) of the USA and do what is best for WE THE PEOPLE. Our dependence on crap built
to fail, made out of high-energy-input toxic materials must end.
I've no love for Dow Chem or any of their ilk because of the way they have treated me and mind for decades. So I do not give a dam if hemp is going
to hurt their business. If they are so short sighted and greedy that they can't break out of their own little box in terms of materiality,t hat is
their own problem.
