hemp use to be used to make rope especially for ships way back when
president george washington use to grow it
no he didnt smoke it
well i guess he might have maybe he didnt inhale either

hemp and marijuana have the same scientific name
the difference though is they are different strains of that genus and species
cannabis sativa

marijuana tends to have more thc the drug that makes you feel good
hemp has less feel good and more cbd the drug that is more freely being used for different health issues especially neurological ones especially seizures that are difficult to control

way back in the 1930s a law was passed to make it illegal to grow hemp

supposedly because it was when marijuana became illegal to grow and use in the us
some think it was mainly political that hemp got included
something about nylon being made by dupont and there was a push by the power folks
now we call them lobbyists to block the hemp production so to eliminate the hemp competition to nylon
some say this is why hemp became illegal to grow

some say is commonly in the know of whats true you know

when you fast forward a few years
you see the tobacco farmers suffering in several southern states
like say kentucky

in kentucky they needed a new agricultural crop since the tobacco one was fading away
the kentucky politicians started working to get hemp oked to grow in the us on the federal level

the top politician from kentucky in power in washington
thats mitch mcconnell the head of the senate

he used his power and influence to get the approval of hemp production in the us
to be legal
this was all put in the big farm bill that just got overwhelmingly passed in congress
now it just needs a presidential signature

supposedly this will happen
kentucky and other states can legal grow hemp
but not marijuana
so federally you can legally grow one but not the other

hemp has a lot of cbd oil and very little thc less than 0.3%
its used to make ropes clothing furniture etc

there will be more cbd products become available now
hopefully more legal drug alternatives can be developed
something thats long been overdue

it does seem strange that when you look at the congress folks that voted for all of this
all were doing it for different reasons
most for the money crop involved
some for the social reasons
some for more medical uses
some hoping it helps open a new opening for legalizing marijuana on the federal levels since over half the states have at least legalized it for medical use

strange bed fellows
money talks doesnt it
