Canadian Video on Industrial Hemp

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Industrial hemp organizations have put together an excellent summary of centuries of hemp history: "Hemp - The Environmentally Sustainable Alternative (Part 1)."

Calling hemp "the world's most valuable plant," the nine-minute YouTube video tells the story well, pointing out the absurdity of the United States still banning a crop which was a major crop until it was made illegal in 1937 -- only to be heavily promoted by the U.S. government during World War II -- and then banned once again. For background on the video and more info, visit Kate Weldon's post on Barry's Bay This Week, reporting that "Hemp video number two is already in the works. 'The Hemp Revival – 1994 to 2008' will feature footage of hemp used for carbon negative building, car parts, plastics and health food" -- reminding us that hemp growing is once again both legal and profitable in Canada.
