For thousands upon thousands of years, all over the world, whole families came together to harvest the hemp fields at the height of the flowering season, never dreaming that one day the U.S. government would be spearheading an international movement to wipe the cannabis plant off the face of the earth.
For the past sixty years, the United States has not only discouraged the use of hemp, but adopted a policy of forced extinction upon this species of plant.
The impact of accidentally, or even consciously, destroying any single life form has never been fully considered, let alone the effect of this concerted attack upon what is arguably the Earths primary renewable resource; one that has literally thousands of critical applicationsespecially in replacing the majority of uses of fossil fuels, timber, and petrochemicals.
