We're all going to die. Well, maybe not just yet. There seems to be increasing alarm from the environmental crowd that earplugs are becoming a necessity.The part that confuses me the most is why they are not more readily supporting actor Woody Harrelson's efforts to distinguish between industrial hemp and marijuana? Recently, he was arrested for ceremoniously planting four industrial hemp seeds in Kentucky as an act of civil disobedience.
Throughout history hemp has been a vital plant used for sails, ropes both Columbus and the Mayflower had them, paper, medicine, and many other uses: Hemp is nature's longest, strongest, most durable fiber. As a fabric it is softer, more insulating, absorbent, breathable, and longer lasting than cotton.One acre of hemp produces as much paper as 4.1 acres of trees. The first paper was made from hemp as well as the first draft of the Declaration of Independence, the first draft of the U.S. Constitution, and even the first Gutenberg Bibles.The Santa Barbara Libertarians are hosting their annual Decriminalization Day on July 3 in De La Guerra Plaza: You're welcome to come out and learn more about extending freedom to others. I don't use drugs, drink alcohol, or smoke cigarettes so that you may be freer.Woody Harrelson wrote a letter to the IRS admitting that he had underpaid his taxes by $10,000 donated to an industrial hemp research organization and ended the letter with, "If boycott and tax resistance are the only avenues left to us, then that is the route I will take."Jack Ray, GoletaPublished: June 28, 2000 Copyright 1996 Santa Barbara News-Press Former Kentucky Governor Helps Out Woody Harrelson Hemp Archives:

totally in favor
I am a high school student. I don't smoke or drink, but I am doing a report or a speech in fact about legalizing hemp. I was wondering if you could contact me by e-mail and voice your opposition against this issue. If you didn't care, I was wondering if I could use you as a source, but Idon't have too if you feel this will cause any dismay to your cause. Thanks for your time in reading this!
