By legalizing industrial hemp, it would provide a boost to the economy. It would create jobs in farming, transportation, and potential could create jobs in manufacturing as companies move towards making goods with industrial hemp. It could also help get the US off of oil as it can be processed into fuel.

The reasons behind making industrial hemp illegal are outdated and ignorant. I am not going to lay out all of the facts and history about industrial hemp, but a simple Google search and a quick look at the wikipedia page will give a lot of information.

    Problem Farming jobs, manufacturing jobs, and the US has a strong dependence on foreign oil.
    The unemployment rate is at 9% and a lot of people could work on farms or in manufacturing jobs. My town was decimated when NAFTA was passed.
