Is Hemp a good thing?
Hemp has been outlawed in the U.S. during my lifetime and I can't understand why. It is great for rope. All kinds of fiber and fabric can be made from it. Oil can be made from it. It is a foodstuff and has medicinal uses. This could be the next boom for the economy with it being legalized in Colorado.

Just curious about other countries. Is industrial hemp prohibited in your countries?

It's because of it's economic value that it's banned. The Dupont story says it all... google it.

Plus don't forget how the seeds, themselves plentiful, were the origin of the fuel that the original diesel engine was based upon.

The speed at which hemp grows at makes it a huge carbon sink. North Americas bamboo equivalent.

There is Industrial Hemp in the EU/ middele Europe,
also in India and afir in Indonesia!

Here in Japan they want to re-establish Hemp,
for the industrial as well as for the use in a Shrine,
some cermonies need Hemp Ropes!

My Father in Law told me that they used a lot
of Hemp on their Island for Buildings, Ropes, etc
and i even found a few Bushes of wild Weed there!

So hemp oil could replace petroleum? fuel, plastics?

Carbon sink - what do you mean? Is this good or bad? Plants that intake carbon dioxide and replenish oxygen is a good thing. plowing under the plant remains to amend the soil is good too. It needs little water, unlike corn or other grains they use to make ethanol.

I purchased a product called "Hemp Hearts" in a Costco in my state (UT) recently. I don't understand how they aren't banned, perhaps someone can explain the details on this. But they have 10 grams of protein in only three tablespoons. Sounds like a superfood we could use more of.

Wow, that's amazing. It takes a cup of brown rice to get 5 grams of protein. Quinoa has 20 grams protein per cup as does dried beans, so let's cure world hunger with hemp protein.

Re: Is Hemp a good thing?
Lest we forget the words of our founding fathers and other enlightened (or not)individuals:

"Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country."
- Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President

"Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere."
- George Washington, U.S. President

"We shall, by and by, want a world of hemp more for our own consumption."
- John Adams, U.S. President

"Two of my favorite things are sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe of sweet hemp, and playing my Hohner harmonica." - Abraham Lincoln (from a letter written by Lincoln during his presidency to the head of the Hohner Harmonica Company in Germany)

"Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marihuana in private for personal use... Therefore, I support legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce of marihuana." - Jimmy Carter, U.S. President

"I inhaled frequently. That was the point." - Barack Obama, U.S. President

"The war on drugs has been an utter failure. We need to rethink and decriminalize our nation's marijuana laws." -Barack Obama, January 2004

"The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world." - Carl Sagan, renown scientist, astronomer, astrochemist, author and TV host

"Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?" - Henry Ford, whose first Model-T was constructed from hemp fibers and built to run on hemp gasoline

"Prohibition... goes beyond the bound of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded" -Abraham Lincoln

"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this." - Albert Einstein quote on Hemp

"That is not a drug. It's a leaf." - Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of California

Let's end with a quote from one of the most clueless U.S. Presidents, who evidently thought of himself as an authority on cannabis:

"I now have absolute proof that smoking even one marijuana cigarette is equal in brain damage to being on Bikini Island during an H-bomb blast" - Ronald Reagan

Perhaps with all the evidence coming out that marijuana may help prevent Alzheimer's, it is possible that Reagan's affliction could have been halted or prevented by the herb he so vilified. The powers that maintain the illogical status quo for marijuana's illegality are feeling a seismic shift beneath their skewed logic and paranoid rhetoric. When scientific research is unambiguously and evenly applied to marijuana, the current laws and prohibition cannot and will not stand.

On a side note, sales of the bong that Phelps used are through the roof so in case you're in the market for a Roor Little Sista Ice Masta 3.2, you may have a hard time finding one. However, with marijuana being one of the biggest cash crops in our country, you surely won't have a hard time finding something to smoke in it....

"If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."
- Terence McKenna

So you are saying it could be lucrative to invest in some land in CO to grow and process hemp? It isn't a harmful process like extracting oil from shale or tar sands or drilling a mile below the ocean into the
deposits? Is hemp used in other countries or is it prohibited globally?

I doubt it.
Some guys in Colorado who already farm
other products will add hemp as soon as
the rules get written, they'll by a hemp
harvester, yeah there is such a thing, and
they'll start processing it into fiber and
oil and other base products on their farm
in some building they probably already have
like a large loafing shed.
They'll sell the base products to others
or also build a business of further processing
and their success will breed greed in other
farmers and then PROBABLY California, already
an agricultural powerhouse will legalize open
hemp production.
