We the undersigned support H.R. 3037 IH, "The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2005." Industrial hemp is NOT marijuana. Industrial hemp can NOT get you "high." Therefore, there is no reason for it to be illegal to grow! One acre of hemp makes the equivalent of four acres of tree's for paper products and construction materials and can grow twice in a season, while trees take 100's of years to grow tall again! Hemp is three times stronger than cotton and less detrimental to the environment. It uses no pesticides or herbicides and grows 1 to 2 inches a day on average. Hemp foods contain important essential fatty acids and are high in protein. Hemp has successfully been made into and used for fuel. The list of wonders goes on and on. At one time, hemp was our countryís #1 resource and it was illegal NOT to grow it as a farmer. Hemp is a MAJOR CASH CROP and can help SAVE OUR PLANET! Our farmers and our country should not be left behind any longer. If you care about our environment and our countries economy, than you will pass this bill!
