The Cost of Living on this planet is based on the cost of our forced dependence on petrochemical products controlled by corrupt dictatorships and protected by $1 Trillion a year of American weapons and soldiers.
Imagine if those soldiers were farmers growing the Hemp “The Trillion Dollar Crop” to supply the people of America with all the food, fiber, fuel, and oil we need to thrive, just like our forefathers did.
As the old saying goes: “One man’s dream is a multi-national petrochemical corporation’s nightmare!”
Sign our White House Hemp Petition: http://wh.gov/wPIw
Hemp was, at one time, as American as apple pie. The first currency was printed on hemp paper. Hemp flour, hemp oil, hemp seeds and hemp fiber were an invaluable part of American society. The English colonists at Jamestown cultivated hemp in the 1600’s and used the fiber for rope, clothing, linen, rugs and even sails. No doubt hemp seed and oil were an integral part of the early settlement kitchen and medicine cabinet. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington both grew hemp.
President Washington urged his fellow citizens to “Make the most of Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.”
President Jefferson declared “Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country.”
But what do they know?
If you’re tired of government gridlock and looking for real solutions to our economic problems, this is your lucky day!
PLEASE SIGN AND PASS ON THIS WHITE HOUSE PETITION supporting bipartisan efforts for real agricultural reform. The economic potential of industrial hemp for every state of our union is huge, and closer than ever to becoming a reality, but we need 100,000 signatures in the next 30 days to get a response from the White House. So, stop complaining about the economy and tell Congress and the White House to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
Seriously. Do it. Left Wing or Right Wing. Red State or Blue State. Hemp could be the first Trillion Dollar Crop.
The American hemp industry, revived in the 1990s in a wave of cannabis-fueled environmentalism, now sells $450 million a year of products from hemp-oil soap to hemp-coned speakers for guitar amplifiers, according to an industry trade group. Yet all the raw material used for these products, from fiber to hempseed oil, has to be imported, as it’s still illegal to grow hemp in the United States.
