OK I experimented on growing hemp this year, now what?
I have a few questions:
1. I hear it’s illegal to grow it in some of the states.
2. Why did our so-called Founding Fathers stop growing hemp?
3. How do you process it into fiber?
4. What’s the big freeeeking deal with all the laws?
I don’t know, however when I hear the word “Hemp”, I picture long haired 1960′s youth in tied dyed shirts, smelling like arm pits and patchouli, woven sandals, stoned out of their gourd and spacing out to psychedelic colors. I don’t see wimps saying I didn’t inhale like the politicians or presidents.
Until recently, within a couple years or so, I have been curious as to see what’s the big deal because I never saw it as a viable crop, of course I did read that it was the chosen crop in the 1880′s before the cotton gin was invented. However, even at that, Cotton was still way more expensive to harvest, cultivate and process. Who knows what happened or why laws and rules were changed. Maybe every one of the Founding Fathers were way too stoned to figure out anything..who knows – only they know. History books can only tell you so much, although it was the plant of choice for decades in the United States of America, with or without THC. What history does and doesn’t tell us in a strange way is that I’m sure Washington, Jefferson, Betsy Ross sure had many-ah 420 puff-puff-give sessions. Read More→
