Comment: Anyone here know?

Anyone here know?

What the production of industrial hemp is per acre and what the dollar value per bushel/bail of hemp is? If hemp goes into full production, what agricultural, or other products would be displaced? I'm thinking there could be a whole lot of reasons hemp is illegal to be grown here. Could the competition of industrial hemp be a threat to the synthetic fiber, petroleum, wood fiber, plastics and cotton industries, just to name a few? If we produced our own hemp that would probably end all of the hemp imports, that's another group of special interests that wouldn't be too happy about legalization.

I hear the sound of a whole lot of oxes being gored with this legislation.
