Hemp growing doesn’t need any weed killing, no pesticide. Its raw material grows naturally and it doesn’t need chemical intervention.
Up until the 1800′s, most of the textiles in the United States were made with hemp. 50% of medicine marketed in the last half of the 19th Century was made from cannabis. Even Queen Victoria used the resin abstracts from cannabis to alleviate her menstrual cramps. But the funny thing about industrial hemp was that you couldn’t get high from it.
…nobody talks about nicotine being a gateway drug, so there’s no sense to that. And besides it’s not nearly as addictive as alcohol. So if you’re a consistent person and you think the government should be regulating personal behavior you have to be for prohibition of alcohol. And when you look back and throughout history and what happened to that, it was a total disaster. It created the Al Capones. And right now today there is so much violence today, not because people use drugs, but because they’re illegal. You know the people who benefit the most by all these laws – these are the drug cartels. They lobby to keep these laws in place because they cannot exist without them. you don’t have the Al Capones now because you don’t have prohibition of alcohol. Prohibition is what is bad. And this does not mean we endorse personal behavior that is not beneficial, it just means who regulates personal behavior?
Cannabis and hemp traditionally have been used to treat alcoholics, recovering drug addicts, and it hasn’t changed over the years. They’re still using it today in some cases, but most medical facilities don’t recognize it. I believe they don’t recognize the product because of the disinformation that’s been handed over the years. It’s touted as an illicit drug rather than a medicine. In the research that we have the most amazing part of the product is the medicinal value to it.
