Let’s do Hemp!

Another wild idea from UKR columnist Jon Davy

by Jon Davy

Here’s a wild idea: let’s do hemp!

Hemp has, like, a bazillion uses.

Of course it gets all confused with Marijuana, drugs and so forth because the distinction has gotten blurred, probably deliberately.

I speak as someone who doesn’t do drugs and wouldn’t do drugs if my life depended on it.

Well, actually, if my life really depended on it, I probably would but as my life doesn’t depend on doing drugs even remotely, I don’t do them.

The confusion between the hemp plant and the drug came about because they are related. This is a shame because we kind of missed the boat so far as hemp is concerned. Talk about chucking out the baby with the bath water!

After all, if you are going to do away with hemp because of its relation to a drug, you might as well ban wheat because LSD is made from a fungus that grows on the rye seed. Or ban potatoes because you can distil alcohol (a drug) from them.

So anyway, I’ve put here for you consideration some links below that give you more data on the distinction between hemp and marijuana and also the potential uses of hemp, plus a comparison between it and trees in terms of the environment.

Hemp vs Marijuana

Nothing against trees by the way. Trees are low-maintenance and you can plonk a tree in any spare corner that isn’t much good for anything else. Hemp meanwhile, like any crop, requires cultivation and husbandry. But it seems to me that potentially it offers a hell of a return on the investment.

Take a look. What do you think?


The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
