Hemp is our Savior It has been once said that as a human race if our current rate of deforestation of trees continues at the same rate as today in less than fifty years we will no longer be able to survive on this planet Sometime in the near future a great change must be made for the fate of human kind This change is going to have to be to legalize industrial hemp Hemp is a plant that has a wide variety of uses It has been proven that the stalk of the hemp plant can produce three times as much paper that trees can produce1 Many countries have already begun to start cultivating hemp but it still remains illegal to grow industrial hemp in the United States The reason that hemp became illegal is because the marijuana tax act illegalized marijuana in 1937 and because industrial hemp is marijuanas cousin the two became to be thought as the same thing and hemp became illegal But these two different plants are far from the same Industrial hemp contains such a low level of THC which is the psychoactive substance in marijuana that it cannot reasonably be considered a drug3 No matter how much hemp you try to smoke it is absolutely impossible to get high off of it The government opposes legalizing hemp because they believe that it would send the wrong message to the public and they think that this may lead to legalizing marijuana But the governments main reason for their opposition to legalize hemp is because they are afraid that marijuana plants could be hidden in the middle of hemp fields making aerial surveillance impossible to spot out the marijuana2 This is a poor argument however for it is impossible to grow marijuana next to or amongst hemp because the cross-breading of the two plants lowers the THC potency and destroys both of the plants Even if you could grow
