You should know about HEMP
by The Struggle Is A Choice
Take this Nu year to educate yourselves. Its not cool to just repeat one side or another of the whole debate regarding Marijuana, Hemp, Cannabis (which ever name you prefer to use) base off of headlines you might read or rumors you hear. C.I.B. will be posting numerous articles referring to credible source in the Marijuana/Hemp movement. ReadUP.
Here is an excerpt from an article on NORML’s website. (Link included below):
Although our federal government refuses to waver on hemp prohibition, public, state and international support is growing. The European Union now subsidizes farmers to grow hemp, which is legally recognized as a commercial crop by the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT).
In recent years, a number of U.S. states have commissioned studies recommending hemp as a viable economic crop. Most recently, legislatures in Montana and North Dakota have enacted legislation licensing farmers to grow hemp (though federal approval still remains necessary), hopefully paving the way for a renewed U.S. hemp cultivation industry in the not-so-distant future.
C.I.B. Challenge: Read this article in its entirety, you can learn valuable information and determine where you stand other than “Yeah I smoke weed”.
