Industrial Hemp would be a much better crop for New Mexico, and it is time for our representatives to work for legislation that would legalize the growing of this incredible crop. Hemp provides food, clothing and fuel to name but three of the myriad of products produced from this renewable resource.
The false association with Marijuana that produces a "high" has kept this crop from being legal by the DEA. This lie has kept Hemp from being grown here since the 2nd World War. Canada has legalized the growing of Industrial Hemp and the results have been spectacular.
Please consider speaking out against Cotton in New Mexico, and impress upon your representatives the value and need for Industrial Hemp
