It is the common knowledge of most global citizens that the superimposed, “War on Drugs”, was, presently is, and will always be a massive failure. Understanding this core fact, we now must intricately explore the multi-faceted opportunities that we, as the new-age global community have to infuse the quickly emerging universal economy. One of the major factors to take into account here, is the blatantly obvious viability of the over 50,000 uses of hemp and hemp derivatives. Hemp legislation, if taken seriously by the United States federal government, will once again push the United States into the forefront of the world stage. Following the very first federal drug law in 1906, (The Food and Drugs Act), the economy of the United States has suffered needlessly; due to racially bias political ideologies, corporate greed, and government corruption. The re-introduction of effective hemp legislation will help bridge the racial, economic, political, and gender chasm that presently exists on the worldwide scale.


First, we are going to briefly examine the history of hemp in the United States. Then, we are going to focus on a couple of the economy boosting uses of hemp. Lastly, we are going to develop a plan and framework that, if used, will re-establish the United States, once again, as a global powerhouse. Hemp legislation, if taken economically seriously, has the superior viability to not only advance the United States, but also the global community. 

Hemp Legislation and the Global Economy
Beginning with the first president of the United States, George Washington, he not only used products made from the hemp plant, but also encouraged its nationwide cultivation as well. President Washington, in, 1794, was quoted as saying, “Make the most you can of the Indian-Hemp seed and sow it everywhere." If hemp was not an inherently viable source of food, jobs and economic empowerment, then why would President Washington make this very straight-forward, blatant assertion?
President Abraham Lincoln's’ thoughts on hemp: 
“Two of my favorite things are sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe of sweet hemp, and playing my Hohner harmonica”.
President Thomas Jefferson had this to add about the close relationship between hemp cultivation and national security: 
“Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country”.

President John Adams summed up the United States use of hemp with this statement: 
“We shall, by and by, want a world of hemp more for our own consumption”.

Albert Einstein’s take on the hemp issue: 
"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law… for nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this."

Henry Ford, (the inventor of the famous Model-T Ford), had this to share concerning hemp production: 
"Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?"

The last quote that I would like to share is from the currently, sitting President of the United States, Barack Obama, concerning our current U.S. drug policy: 
"The war on drugs has been an utter failure. We need to rethink and decriminalize our nation's marijuana laws."

These, very direct, quotes were taken from some the most powerful men in history… past and present.

Our key legislative policies on the drug issue in America need to begin to re-reflect the original views of our founding fathers vision of a prosperous and free country; if we are to ever hand over the keys of debt-free prosperity to our children’s children.

The following information comes directly from the United States Department of Agriculture's '1942 14-minute film; encouraging and instructing 'Patriotic American Farmers' to grow 350,000 acres of hemp each year for the war effort: ‘




(When) Grecian temples were new; hemp was already old in the service of mankind. For thousands of years, even then, this plant had been grown for cordage and cloth in China and elsewhere in the East. For centuries prior to about 1850, all the ships that sailed the western seas were rigged with hempen rope and sails. For the sailor, no less than the hangman, hemp was indispensable...
...Now with Philippine and East Indian sources of hemp in the hands of the Japanese... American hemp must meet the needs of our Army and Navy as well as of our industries...
...the Navy's rapidly dwindling reserves. When that is gone, American hemp will go on duty again; hemp for mooring ships; hemp for tow lines; hemp for tackle and gear; hemp for countless naval uses both on ship and shore. Just as in the days when Old Ironsides sailed the seas victorious with her hempen shrouds and hempen sails. ‘Hemp for victory!’ 
(Dewey, L.H. Yearbook of the United States Department of Agriculture. (p.238) (1913)


This is even more certifiable proof that the United States federal government is more than advised of the crystal clear fact that hemp is, doubtlessly, the oldest harvested crop in the world. We, as the global collective, have the golden opportunity to seize the future of the new-age; and hand the next generation of leaders a surplus, not a deficit.

One of the most vital economic categories for the gross production of hemp would definitely have to be the production of hemp for fuel. Let us compare petrol production versus hemp fuel production to gain a much better understanding of the ingenious economic viability of worldwide hemp fuel production. Hemp can be mass produced stateside… Petrol must be imported at ridiculous tariff rates. This alone should be more than enough to spur the federal government into placing this subject on the legislation ballot on Capitol Hill. There is absolutely no comparison between stateside production of fuel and having to import product from across the world; from places that are hotbeds for corruption and political coups. Hemp is an eternally renewable source of ‘ready-to-use’ fuel products… Petrol is a limited resource that might not even last through the next 50 years. Hemp, unlike petrol, can be grown from the soil, nationwide... Petrol is highly flammable and equally dangerous to store for long periods.

Clearly, hemp, ‘the billion dollar crop’ is either being overlooked by the many or hoarded by the few.
Hemp is totally biodegradable. Producing hemp fuel stateside would not only help our bottom economic line tremendously, it would also free up much needed space to plant hemp crops; that huge corporate petrol silos currently horde. Aggressive nationwide hemp production could provide much needed global economic resources, jobs for American farmers, and the erection of hemp production farms, laboratories, storage silos and factories.


Petrol is perpetually contributing to global warming… Hemp is produced directly from the soil; so it is a natural part of a healthy, functioning ecosystem-system. Petrol is highly poisonous and toxic… Hemp is neither poisonous nor toxic. Unlike petrol, hemp is pure, “green-energy.” Petrol contributes to major health and economic catastrophes; such as oil spills, sulfur pollution and air pollution… Hemp is part of the natural eco-process…. Petrol continues to damage the ozone layer, the soil and also the lungs of all Americans; not to mention the global community… Hemp is naturally recurring; so it is as natural as the air we breathe. The production of petrol costs an astronomical amount of money to mass produce… The cost to produce hemp is nominal in comparison to the production of petrol. America currently uses 25% of the worlds’ energy resources…
With nationwide hemp production, our reliance on foreign energy resources would potentially be cut down to an impressive 6%. Petrol produces carbon monoxide; a toxic, noxious, odorless, poisonous gas... Hemp, on the other hand, is non-toxic; and can be converted into practically anything with an oil base; for example, non-toxic printing inks, detergent, varnish and lubricating oil; also a massive array of cooking and health products. These are just a few, bare bones, examples of the illuminating uses of the hemp product and its derivative uses.
In closing, we as the United States of America have the moral, spiritual, economic and ethical obligation to the next generations; ensuring that they never have to experience the horrendous bouts with financial woes as we have. Once we, as the new global community, put our differences, jaded ideologies, political posturing and blatant racist attitudes aside, we can all begin to share in the plenteous bounty of a, 'True Republic', that our forefathers could only have dreamed of.
