Legalization of Industrial Hemp sign now

Hemp is the male form of Cannabis Sativa that can be grown for many uses and has been grown for thousands of years. Marijuana is the female Cannabis plant that is used for its psychoactive compound THC. Hemp contains no THC and is therefore useless as a recreational or medicinal drug. This plant isnt illegal because people can abuse it; it is illegal because of its threat to the major cotton and petrochemical corporations. Other countries such as Canada, England, France, Serbia, China, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Australia have legalized hemp and do not look down upon hemp and understand it for its many uses.
-The most important attribute about hemp is that it is a sustainable crop that grows very fast absorbing a lot carbon in the atmosphere, a major player in Global Warming.
-It can be harvested multiple times a year without damaging the soil, and with minimal to no use of pesticides and other chemicals.
- Hemp can be used for textiles which is three times the strength of cotton.
- Hemp concrete which is stronger, more flexible and better insulating than regular concrete.
-Hemp can be made into chip board which is like wood but it is stronger and better insulating and no trees are cut down therefore reducing deforestation.
-Hemp is very nutritional with the correct ratio of omega fatty acids and also easily digestible proteins so it could help third world countries and hopefully end world hunger.
-Hemp oil can be made into a clean burning bio diesel with much less emissions than regular gasoline and it would remove the dependence on foreign oil
-hemp can also make four times more paper per acre than trees and can be harvested multiple times per year rather than once every 6-8 years.
-hemp can be made into a strong plastic which also cuts down on the use of oils because even if we stopped driving every car in the world, it still wouldn't solve the oil crisis because 50 percent of the oil in the world is used for making plastics.
Currently hemp in the United States is only grown for research purposes and it requires a permit to grow a stage one narcotic drug. There is no reason for hemp to be illegal in the United States and the only reason it is illegal is because of its threat to big business and corporations. I propose that with enough people and activism, hemp can become legalized in the United States where it can save the economy and the environment.
