    very much money, since it's so easy to grow, but it would save an enormous amount.

      Growing average medicinal or recreational cannabis is quite easy but producing better quality products is quite labor intensive and requires a lot of experience and knowledge.

      The reason cannabis was taxed and regulated out of domestic production in the first place by the disinformation campaign of the tabloid style newspapers of Wm Randolf Hearst which gave us the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 was the competition hemp posed to the financial interests of Hearst himself. When cannabis is finally liberated so too will hemp be allowed to compete with other commercial crops.

      Cannabis or more specifically hemp will have a major positive role in rebuilding our manufacturing sector and will lead to millions of permanent living wage manufacturing jobs in a new greener and less centralized domestic economy. http://www.rmforbes.net scroll down and read the comment I posted to the Thom Hartmann blog.
