A QUESTION OF MOTIVE

    DuPont’s plans were alluded to during the 1937 Senate hearings by Matt Rens, of Rens Hemp Company:

    Mr. Rens: Such a tax would put all small producers out of the business of growing hemp, and the proportion of small producers is considerable … The real purpose of this bill is not to raise money, is it?

    Senator Brown: Well, we’re sticking to the proposition that it is.

    Mr. Rens: It will cost a million.

    Senator Brown: Thank you. (Witness dismissed.)
