I agree, Hemp should be at

I agree, Hemp should be at the forefront of our efforts in the Liberty movement. Legalizing hemp growing in America would revitalize our backward and subsidized farming industry. Hemp is one of the most nutritious plants in the world and can be made into over thousands of products. We would have a literal American Hemp Renaissance within 5 years as our tech savvy generation can apply its talents and resources toward hemp products ranging from food to clothes to biodegradable plastics and fuels. Local economies will flourish and the US could export its products around the globe.

The best part is that this is a great non-confrontational issue that the Liberals, Libertarians and Republicans could easily get behind. There are destitute towns in Nebraska and across our heartland that have been reduced to bitter and crime ridden welfare shanties that are just waiting for an opportunity to rebuild their communities based on agriculture that creates something productive.

This country was built on Hemp from the very beginning and we are going to be perpetually screwed by the petro-chemical industry unless we allow the cultivation of this amazing plant.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
