Hello Video Lovers,

Why is hemp still illegal? There are so many environmentally friendly things it can do, it is almost a crime not to exploit them.

The growing of hemp in Great Britain was legalized in 1993 and since then it has becoming a booming industry.

It needs half the fertilizer required for wheat and uses no additional chemicals. It is used in the textile industry to make clothes, in the automotive industry instead of fiberglass to make things like car door panels, it is used in the housing industry for insulation materials and a mix of lime and hemp used as a building material is cheaper and stronger than concrete and has huge insulating value.

And this video does not even touch on it's use as a paper product or as a biofuel. Hemp is so versatile it is a crime that it is not grown in the United States.
