    I firmly believe it is the answer to many of these points, but regulations have suppressed the mass production of it.  In TX, for example, it is “legal” to grow, but the hoops and regulations to do so create so much risk that most farmers are not willing to.  
    God forbid you get an actual plant with THC mixed in the crop and you lose your business.  Federal legalization of actual Marijuana would go a long ways in lowering risks for hemp farmers.  Come on Democrats, do it while you have a window!!!

    That is SO frustrating!  Here's plant that was considered an essential product during WWII for use in making ropes and tents, etc. and now it's a problem because a few potent plants might make their way into the crop.  Like you say, federal legalization is the answer.  Meanwhile, a much more dangerous drug- alcohol- is perfectly legal.  Ridiculous.

    Of course, the real reason marijuana is illegal is because in many cases, it allows people to think and see things from a different perspective and some people don't like that idea. They've got it all wrong.
