With hemp, you can build the body of a car and then use the oil from the seeds for fuel.  You can build a house that requires no extra heating or cooling capabilities.  You can also process hemp into textiles for clothes, and protein and essential fatty acids for nutrition.  What can’t hemp do?  Well, it can’t help anyone get high.

Our economy and our environment really need a win right now.  Hemp is a product that requires few resources and no pesticides to produce.  And can be grown with a “less than zero carbon footprint” meaning that it absorbs more carbon than it requires in production.

We purchase hemp for industrial use from other countries, when we could, with simple law changes, produce it here in the United States, to help support American agriculture and our economy.

Please contact your representative to let them know that you support the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009, HR 1866, and you’d like them to support the act as well.
