In my typical stumbling, bumbling way I came upon this excellent interview about industrial hemp. While surfing around YouTube I was curious to see what Dannion Brinkley, author of “Saved By The Light”, one of the first books to become popular focused on the near death experience (NDE), was up to these days.

In this interview with Dannion and Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc., the first publicly traded company which sells hemp products, they make the case that industrial hemp obviously should be legalized in the United States of America. Let us put it this way. Industrial hemp growing, its legalization in every state of the nation, is a “slam dunk” and a “no-brainer”.

America is the #1 importer of hemp products from nations whose people have legalized it years ago, while those who import hemp cannot buy it from American farmers

Colorado, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and other states have industrial hemp legalization initiatives

30,000 and more consumer goods can be, and are, produced from hemp

If humanity became forced to abandon the Earth and could only take one plant with them, hemp would be the choice, as every item needed for survival can be created/made from it, including food

In 2012 sales of hemp products was around $500,000,000, with forecasts indicating a tremendous growth in future sales due to intensifying customer demand for beneficial goods made from hemp

Pound for pound hemp has more protein than steak

Hemp fabrics are inherently anti-microbial, illustrating the great potential for hemp cloth manufacture of hospital scrubs, gowns, sheets and bedding, gloves, lab coats, etc.

Hemp is able to produce fuel, fiber, food, textiles, paper, medicine, healthy oils, building materials of all types, etc.

In states such as Colorado, where hemp farming is legal, farmers find themselves in a situation where manufacturers in other states where hemp farming is illegal cannot buy hemp legally from them

Those manufacturers become forced to buy hemp raw materials from China, Romania, Canada, and other nations @ 3 times the cost if they were able to buy directly from American hemp farmers

One hemp fact conclusively proves that current American federal law on hemp farming is, well – stupid, preposterous, and asinine.

Dannion Brinkley shares this fact in the interview. He points out that pulp, the raw material used to make paper cups, plates, writing paper, books, magazines, etc., in the total quantity grown on 5 acres by traditional tree-sourced processes, would need 20 years to grow and replace. In very sharp contrast, on 1 acre of hemp, which is a weed that will grow rapidly anywhere on Earth except the North and South poles, that same amount of pulp material will grow and be produced every 90 days.

Many reading these words are aware of the tremendous potentials of hemp production and manufacturing. There is no longer any debate. It is time that the United States Congress legalized industrial hemp farming in every state of the nation.

Perhaps many of you have used hemp products, such as skin softeners, clothing, or hemp oils. Of the many good benefits of the hemp plant, oil which is ingested, super-rich in essential omega oil content, is the one I most appreciate – good health benefits. For those who have used hemp-oil moisturizer you never forgot how after applying it to your hands, your hands became “soft as a baby’s butt”. One can only imagine how beneficial hemp oil is when it is taken internally, and comes into contact with internal organs.

Mr. Brinkley correctly identifies hemp farming legalization as a new “industrial revolution”, signaling an increase of awareness in the concept of “spiritualistic capitalism”. Industrial hemp farming legalization is a win/win/win for humanity. It is a step which is a winner for the environment, the economy and job creation, and for human health.

Just as the United States Congress must remove the roadblocks to American citizens’ access and use of solar, wind, biogas, and other available renewable energy potentials, lawmakers must remove the roadblocks to the tremendous benefits of hemp farming.

One of the reason I wanted to share this interview with you was to suggest the positive possibilities of taking part in the favorable business opportunities surrounding what is a growth industry: hemp farming, manufacturing, retailing, and investment.

Regarding renewable energy and hemp farming – it is time to “get” the message of the old cliché – “lead, follow, or get out-of-the-way”.

    1. Debra,
      Ralph Nader suggested industrial hemp, gosh, 12 years ago? Obviously there is a special interest connection (lumber, paper, cotton, etc. corporations). Frankly hemp products would come to dominate every market sector, taking major shares of sales away from existing monopolies. Then people would be able to obtain the oils cheap, leading to healthy people who don’t need to spend billions on health care. The overused cliché pertains-follow the money. Even God, in Neale Donald Walsh’ “Conversations With God” books mentions industrial hemp’s benefits. If God, whether one believes Walsh was speaking to the Creator or not, has endorsed hemp production, it should be good enough for America!
      Did you notice a difference after starting those smoothies?
      Thanks,

        1. Debra,
          You may be familiar with a fellow named Ron Simpson, who used concentrated cannabis oil to cure some family and friends of cancer. I can’t recall the name of the film he made but the oil seemed to really cure them, as they weren’t “actors”-they seemed sincere. The film was persuasive, and he was stopped from continuing to produce and supply the oil to cancer sufferers, as well as other types of diseases/conditions. So, he cured people and was stopped-very sad for those who lost loved ones unnecessarily. Cancer is a multi-billion dollar/year “industry”. Glad you decided against flu shots-I’ve never taken one.
          Thank you,
          Jerry

          1. I’m not familiar with Ron or the film, but I absolutely agree that the medical industry has become another protected monopoly and have done a bit of reading to convince me of this.
            One of the incentives for me to try to stay healthy, is a distrust of modern medical practices. Talk about a bully pulpit!!! They have it in spades and unfortunately, the ACA does not appear to break the monopoly but only strengthen it.
            When people doubt this, I offer common sense questions to help shed some light: How come, if there’s a shortage of care, whether it be hospitals, doctors or what have you, we don’t see more doctors or hospitals? Of course the answer is that the AMA controls the number of medical students entering the profession and hospitals are required to have a permit to be built, so the industry remains a protected class with a monopoly business model. That is why costs are going up. Well, that and the fact that people are getting sick from eating food that is overly processed and has the magic formula, wheat, sugar and fake cheese or dairy by-products:(
