I mentioned this in AMT but for those who are turned off to the political forums, this is beyond politics- this is great news for everyone!  Hemp is such a great plant.  It is a nitrogen fixing plant which means it's good for the soil.  It has many, many uses and can be made into many things including rope, clothing, shoes, nutritious food products, ceiling tiles and even, yes, body parts for cars and tractors! 

GLORY HALLELUJAH, HEMP IS LEGAL!

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but why was hemp illegal in any of the 50 states? It has no THC.

    Good question, BB.  The main reason it was kept illegal was because it would be very easy to intersperse marijuana plants that do contain high levels of THC.  Now that several states have legalized cannabis, that is probably seen as a futile issue today.

    I also suspect it may have had something to do with the plastics industry not wanting competition from another source of product material.

    If hemp usage proliferates the way many of us are hoping it will, this plant could provide relief from many environmental issues that have plagued the planet.  This is such amazingly good news!

    If you ate a lot of hemp could you get high?

    I buy my dog glucosamine vitamins that are made with hemp oil. I noticed a lot of the vitamins have hemp in them (the dog ones). She's a big dog so her back legs hurt her. 

    I know hemp is used to make clothing but I need to read up on it to see what other uses it has. 

    Happy Hemp Day Brian. :peace:

    LOL, no, sorry may friend, not likely!

    Nice!   Same to you, Nancy.  :smile:

    If your library has one or you're able to track down a copy Doug Fine's book Hemp Bound, he talks quite a bit about a lot of the uses for hemp.  It's astounding all the things you can do with and make out of hemp.  And it's good for the soil!  Hempallujah!

    Brian, it's odd that we were discussing hemp being banned in another thread, and boom it's legal.  Hate to say it bro, but I think Trump is 10 club member and was reading our post ... and thought to himself "that's a good idea those 2 have". lol
