Hemp Advocate Admits It's A Tough Sell!

  Hemp Advocate Admits It's A Tough Sell!

Posted by FoM on January 29, 1999 at 07:31:56 PT

Columbus, Ohio A proponent of Hemp says getting the plant legalized in Ohio will be a tough sell. Don Wirtshafter owns the Ohio Hempery in Athens County... which processes oil from hemp seeds.
 He says hemp is the same plant as marijuana... except it's been bred so that a person cannot get high from smoking it. Wirtshafter says it's a great crop that can be used to make clothing, rope and even building materials. Plus he says the oil from its seeds has great health benefits. Wirtshafter says a petition drive to present the possible legalization of hemp to the state legislature has stalled well short of its goal. He continues trying to interest farmers in the crop and says other states... including Kentucky, North Carolina and Virginia... are also looking into the benefits of hemp.

POT is good
you know i like pot a lot i dont smoke everyday, but when i do i feel so free. everything goes right when your stoned except when the cops come. If its legalized everyone would try it probably once in there life and find the treu meaning of maryjuana and everyone will be peaceful.

Weed is our need
Everything is alright and laid back when your blazed. I mean, I don't know if it is a sin, it doesn't say in the bible, plus it causes less fighting. See i ain't a fighter im a lover, yall know what im sayin? Just chill and soar through your soul. You can find out a lot of neat things when your high, i did, although i forgot, that is the only thing annoying about this, you forget but so what it brings more good than bad. If anything, they should get rid of alcohol and legalize MaryJane, it brings the peace to a lot of messed up fools out there! You know what im sayin, so chill out and roll one!

pot can be so usefull if only used in the propper setting, it can calm the crazy man, it can sooth the blind, it can make the crazieness of life feel so calm to the bussines man,and it lift up the spirits of those around us, it can give the will to those who have eating disorders, and cure those lacking the ability to sleep,but ultimately it can give life that other dimension needed by many of my fellow americans to better enjoy their precious lives with someof gods very handy creation of weed, its not crack or heroine folks, its not been chemicaly proccssed to become something that it was not intended, it was created as it is and consumed in the same way!! smoke gods gift!!
