Industrial hemp is the crop that keeps on giving……..for all Americans.
“Industrial hemp was once a dominant crop on the American landscape. This hardy and renewable resource (one of the earliest domesticated plants known, with roots dating back to the Neolothic Age in China) was refined for various industrial applications, including paper, textiles, and cordage.
Over time, the use of industrial hemp has evolved into an even greater variety of products, including health foods, organic body care, clothing, construction materials, biofuels, plastic composites and more (according to one source, more than 25,000 products can be made from hemp).”

Donald Trump has promised to “Make America Great Again”. President-Elect Trump issued his plan for the first 100 days of his administration which includes repeal of Obamacare and the restoration of our economy. However, his plan is missing the most important step that Trump as a businessman can take to jumpstart our economy and provide the best healthcare — quickly and easily.
Many Libertarians see Trump as “Ron Paul lite”. When Dr. Paul ran for the presidency in 2012, he issued his Plan to Restore America which included repeal of the War on Drugs. In 2011, Congressman Paul had introduced bills to legalize industrial and medical hemp. Unfortunately Obama failed to follow suit.

The National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) was founded in 1970 with the mission of ending cannabis prohibition. The following year, President Nixon famously declared War on Drugs, and thus began a 45-year fight for the hearts and minds of Americans.
Battle lines were drawn—hippies, yippies, radicals, and leftists lined up behind the legalization movement. The law-and-order, clean-cut, conservative crowd backed a hardline approach to the scourge of marijuana. Both sides dug in, and the national debate devolved into a war of attrition. Billions of dollars were spent (wasted?) on a series of policies that destroyed much and achieved nothing.
It took 25 years before California eventually legalized medical marijuana in 1996.
