Farming Hemp in the United States
In 1938, Popular Mechanics Magazine declared that Hemp was the next billion dollar industry and a boon for farmers across America. However, the corporate influence of men like Hearst and DuPont stepped in. The Marijuana Tax Act is passed and forbids hemp farming in the US. Dupont files a patent for nylon.
In 1991, Willie Nelson issued a plea to America to come to its senses and legalize Industrial Hemp, a product that was mandatory for the farmers of the Colonies, and for which the United States Government made a movie entitled, "Hemp for Victory". Why is it illegal? To protect the financial corporate interests of the textile, petrochemical, and lumber (paper) industries. How long will America stand for corporate America sticking it to the little guy?
NOW IS THE TIME! THE PLANET NEEDS HELP!
Hemp, Natures Perfect Plant
AGRICULTURAL BENEFITS OF HEMP
Copyright © 1996. Chanvre en Ville, 3418A, ave. du Parc, Montreal.I would like to see this younger generation, the same one that elected Barack Obama, to get off its collective apathetic duff and turn its incredible talent to the legalization of hemp in this country for food, fuel, paper, etc. This will create a whole new industry and many jobs at a time when we need boosts of all kinds. At the same time, decriminalization of marijuana would release the over 750,000 people who are imprisoned each year for mere possession of this medicinal herb. The only thing criminal is keeping those people in jail any longer. Let's return them to their jobs and families and let them live on their own, freeing the taxpayers from the additional burden. IT HAS BEEN 18 YEARS . . . WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.
Video source: Willie Nelson called me one day and asked if he could appear as a guest in our Time 4 Hemp Studios. To discuss how hemp can help the family farm. On 6/6/91 we taped live. I later went on the 91'hemp tour and we were able to get all ten shows into 99 cities in 44 states.
