A Little Bit of Hemp History
Think of the word “hemp” and all of its encompassing connotations. For many people, three words in particular come to mind: weed, hippies, and smoking. Before the U.S. criminalized cannabis under the Federal Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, those three words were more along the lines of industrial, crop, and medicine. Before the Marijuana Tax Act, industrial hemp was used for just about anything from books to clothing to even gasoline! According to 420 magazine, in the year 1916, the U.S. Government had predicted that by the 1940s all paper would be made from hemp in order to prevent any more trees from being cut down. Just think of the environmental benefits that would have occurred if the Marijuana Tax Act had not happened! Fortunately, more and more states across the United States are or are at least considering legalizing industrial hemp!
