Hemp: A Multi-Purpose Plant

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Henry Ford were all big fans of hemp. Jefferson had said, “Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country,” and Ford had posed the question, “Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and lay 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?”     These two men understood the versatility and importance of the plant that continues to serve multiple purposes today. George Washington also pushed for the growth of hemp as a “cash crop” that could be used for fabric and rope. Unfortunately, things started to change...
