    There are at least 25,000 products that can be produced from hemp. We need to first develop the hemp processing plants that separate the seeds for oil from the paper pulp and strong durable fibers for cordage and textiles. These raw materials then need to be shipped to factories to convert the raw materials to fuel, oil, plastics , textiles and cordage for sale to those that would turn these products into closer to retail sale. This will take some organization and will add hundreds of thousands of new jobs and business opportunities to our state if not millions. This could easily add as much an another billion dollars to our state economy.

    Really don't mind if you sit this one out. My words but a whisper -- your deafness a SHOUT. I may make you feel but I can't make you think..Jethro Tull
