  2. Youtube how is a plant with so much historical significance and aimed at education back by huge sustainability and trusted name as Patagonia blocked with age. Amazing for compost to revitalise our failing soil integrity.

  3. A bias opinion about Winona being absolutely right about respecting this plant. Yes, lets keep the dialogue going and as a suggestion stop calling it "Industrial" hemp then. Proposing "Dynamic Hemp".

  4. I was expecting a story as to how and why cotton won, and thus became the major cash crop in America. Yet, they did not even mention it? Something smells fishy, or maybe cannabisish, here?

  5. Hemp was the major product for ropes etc until Dupont invented nylon. They lobbied the US gov to have it outlawed as a plant . It also needs little water and could easily replace most of the cotton growing in Australia – the driest continent on earth.

  6. Our country has really messed up when it comes to the issue of hemp growing. Its sad to think our country could be in a much better state than it is currently. *sigh If only the propaganda wouldnt have told all those lies….
