mo, no one knows why or has given a reason as to why hemp is an illegal plant, and that is why the question still remains to be answered and a fair opinion without government propaganda, please. mo

I noted that...which is why I "Readers Digested" the article. I have no problem with hemp production...as long as the "smokable" portion isn't distributed.

I did explain why hemp is illegal. I gave the names of the principal participants of the hoax as well as dates it happened. I did not use a government site to gain my information. I used a "pro hemp" site.

mo, yes you did give us a good answer and I thank you very much. While is explanatory as why it is illegal, there is no real reasoning behind any rationale. If law enforcement wanted to eradicate and stop marijuana, hemp would be the first and most cost effective line of defense, mo.

Of course there is no rational reasoning. I think that was the point. It was a bill that hood-winked the public into believing that marihuana was a whole new imported drug. That's why they called it "marihuana". People didn't know that it was actually HEMP. Had DuPont sponsored a bill to make growing "HEMP" illegal, that bill would have never passed. Hemp was a huge farming crop which legally brought billions into the USA's economy. It comes down to Wm. Randolph Hearst and DuPont teaming together to squash hemp production. Keep in mind that the Hearst dynasty was in newspapers. What were they printed on? Prior to the Marihuana Tax Act, most "good" paper was printed on paper that contained hemp fibers. I haven't researched this quite that far, but I'm betting that somewhere in history, we will discover that Hearst had an in with the lumber industry to provide wood pulp from which the paper was derived to print his newspapers on. That would explain the yellow journalism that spewed from his papers regarding that new drug that nobody had ever heard of before called "Marihuana". I agree that if true hemp was legalized, there would be a boom in farming economy. Industrial hemp provides little or no THC content, so attempting to smoke it would be futile. It would also squelch much of the drain on petrolium products. One small plant, organic and easily grown....bringing relief to so many facets of economic problems. It's little wonder it stays illegal. It would solve too many problems and topple too many dynasties.

When it comes to dangerous drugs, marijuana comes in pretty low on the totem pole. Easily below alcohol and even below nicotine in some respects.
Efforts should be focused upon prescription drug abuse before we start worrying about anything else.
Have yet to hear of anyone smoking themselves to death. What a bunch of idiots. Hell beer will kill you faster and its allowed

Puff Puff Puff and if you puff yourself to death,

that you just hate to make him wait,

but you've got to have another cigarette

~~Cigarettes are the real killers along with alcohol. Why aren't these known killers made illegal? j/s

<quoted text>Using Marijuana Before Age 17
"There is a fairly long history of research showing that early cannabis (marijuana) use is associated with increased risks for later use of so-called 'hard drugs,' but that research is based on the fact that most heroin and cocaine users report first having used cannabis," says lead author Michael T. Lynskey, Ph.D., a visiting assistant professor of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and senior research fellow at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Brisbane, Australia. Another one of many
Where they asked about their caffiene use? Caffiene is usually one of the first substances of this sort that all people are faced with. Our children love pop. I try to give healthier options but even juice has excessive sugar. Subliminally how could Caffiene and sugar mold a child's mind into enjoyn the rush they experience after injesting. They like the taste and the way it makes them feel. It makes me think that is the gateway drug. You may not realize how it alters your mind and body.
Pot helps a lot of ailments. It is time to legalize it. The number of people in jail over pot is crazy. Smoking pot shouldn't make a fine, outstanding citizen into a cold hearted criminal. Prison for Pot Isn't that A lot?

this kind of political bullshit and lies is why kids get hooked on the bad drugs... They try pot, they realize you are a liar and think that you are a liar about everything you say.... Who is conducting these studies???? I wonder what they would find if they say conducted a study on Prozac or Xanax use.....
I'm not condoning any kind of drug, but you go to school read from the books that society tells you to read from, teach what society tells you to teach, have no idea the truth about thc or probably any other drug you counsel people on.... The research you site is almost always from a source who has a financial reason to find a conclusion in one way or the other...
so true! Ive just started reading so sorry if my post are off topic. Hemp could save this country. Legalize

They did a study some time back, it involve wrecks of big trucks, something like 80 some percent involved marijuana. I would consider that particularly dangerous. I'll try to look it up again and see if I can find the article. Matter of fact this is so well known that lawyers are specializing in lawsuits against truck drivers under the influence of marijuana involved in wrecks.
