Big oil, big pharma and big mining are just some of the businesses whose revenue streams would be chewed up and spat out by the mighty hemp plant..
not entirely but with a large impact. Cast your mind back to the fate of anything and anyone, whom has challenged these industries by thinking outside
After 100 years of tech we still only 'have' rubber wheels, electric or fuel based engines and an entire economy based around a finite resource
called oil. Hemp can produce oil, hell it can produce the large part of a car - henry ford used hemp and other mostly natural, farming excess products
to produce a car.
It's another case of 'if we do this our backers won't make nearly as much money'.
Time for people to stand up and start doing what they actually want to in life...

If you use rotational crop farming practices, you can maintain its growth. Legumes, squash, zuccini, cucumbers, are all able to get their nitrogen
from the air and they are great for redepositing N back into the soil. For two years its a hemp farm and for two years its a soybean farm. Repeat.
Hmm... It's not like 1000 year old forests don't exist anymore because they pull too much nitrogen. Nice post. The balance of nature can be found
and worked with
