Peasants harvesting hemp at the beginning of the 20th century.
Whole families came out together to harvest the hemp fields at the height of the flowering season, all over the world for thousands upon thousands of years, never dreaming that it would one day be banned from the face of the earth, in favor of fossil fuels, timber, and petrochemicals.
For the past half-century the United States has not only discouraged the use of hemp, but adopted a policy of forced extinction upon this species of plant.
The impact of accidentally destroying any single life form has never been fully considered, let alone the effect of this concerted attack upon what is arguably the Earths primary renewable resource; one that has literally thousands of critical usesespecially in replacing the majority of uses of fossil fuels, timber, and petrochemicals.
