Dennis Weaver is endorsing legislative action to make the growing of industrial hemp legal in California. It has no connection with marijuana-type hemp -- but is the kind of crop Dennis' Institute of Ecolonomics encourages. He says it helps the environment and business simultaneously. 
When I told Weaver that Woody Harrelson has also been a hemp supporter, Weaver started conversations with Woody and told me, ''I'd love to have Woody join forces.'' Dennis and wife Gerry drove in from their home in Ridgway, Colo., to talk the hemp subject and his institute at the home of attorney/environmentalist Bonnie Reiss. Bill Pullman, who starred with Weaver in TNT's ''The Virginian'' (airs Jan. 9), joined that party as a new supporter of the institute. (Pullman also directed and co-produced ''The Virginian''). Environmentalist Weaver says hemp would be invaluable for clothing, rope, seeds, food - and growth would help clean the atmosphere. Published: November 4, 1999Cannabis News Hemp Related Articles:
