The legality of cannabis for general or recreational use varies from country to country. Possession of cannabis is illegal in most countries as a result of the agreement about Indian hemp, also known as hashish, in the International Opium Convention (1925). However, many countries have decriminalized the possession of small quantities of cannabis; see the list below.

Some states in the US allow use of medical cannabis in state, territorial, Indian reservation, and Federal district laws, although the use is illegal by federal law. Federal agencies claim that federal law comes first.

As of 2015, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Germany, the Netherlands, some U.S. states, Native American Indian reservations, and cities as well as some territories of Australia have the least restrictive cannabis laws while China, Egypt, France, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nigeria, Norway, the Philippines, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam have the strictest cannabis laws.

 

 

Our founding fathers George Washington & Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp. Benjamin Franklin owned a mill that made RECYCLED paper from old hemp rags. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper. The first Gutenberg and King James Bibles were also printed on hemp paper. It is imperative that we undestand WHY so we can restore this forgotten ancient technology.

"Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country."
Thomas Jefferson

INDUSTRIAL Hemp already has the potential to replace ALL of our OIL IMPORTS ONshore while creating millions of JOBS, boosting the economy, decreasing IMPORTS, and increasing GDP. We can easily stop deforestation by growing this amazing, natural, non-polluting, ORGANIC plant that (unlike our current USDA subsidized crops) requires NO petroleum-based fertilizers, requires NO petroleum-based pesticides, and requires NO petroleum-based herbicides like Monsanto's Roundup (recently sued for falsely advertising claims that it is "biodegradable". INDUSTRIAL Hemp grows faster, enriches organic soil and creates more OXYGEN than the subsidized crops that industrial hemp strains can replace.

"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?" — Henry Ford

"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 [prohibition]."
Albert Einstein (My First Impression of the U.S.A., 1921)

INDUSTRIAL Hemp plants contain the raw natural resources needed to make tens of thousands of extremely versatile industrial AND domestic products that are actually better, stronger, lighter, more breathable, more durable, non-toxic, water-soluble, biodegradable, even edible, which are products of unbelievably superior quality. Please take some time to learn about the variety of products that we can make from hemp such as: biomass, biofuels, hemp oils, fibers, fabrics, paper, organic plastics, wood, bricks, medical marijuana, organic medicine, foods, clothing, cars, and even entire houses.

"Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere."
George Washington 1794
