The Truth About HEMP
Linda Clark, Ukiah Daily
“It’s just a matter of a few years. I think it’s insane that it’s illegal,” Schaeffer
said. “And that America is the only country that’s backward enough to equate hemp
Pubdate: Tue, 16 Nov 1999 It is legal in 29 countries, and China has been growing
it for at least 6,000 years. It is said to be more versatile than the soybean, the
cotton plant and the Douglas fir combined. And, “it grows like Jack’s beanstalk with
minimal tending,” John W. Roulac, author of “Hemp Horizons” said.
Hemp won’t get you high like its look-alike marijuana, and it has been used to make
paper, clothing, ropes, and even our first American flag, according to Patty Joslyn,
owner of Grace’s clothing store in Ukiah.
So why aren’t California farmers growing it? Because, according to Roulac, anyone
cultivating hemp risks criminal prosecution. “The legislators who originally crafted
federal anti-marijuana laws never intended to restrict hemp, but regulatory practice
blurred the distinction between hemp and marijuana,” he said.
“Hemp growers and processors faced overwhelming red tape, heavy taxes, and the threat
of arrest; in essence, the industry was criminalized and it therefore declined precipitously.
“This state of affairs could be reversed - with no need to legalize marijuana - if
the distinction based on scientifically measurable THC content were upheld in the
enforcement of existing laws,” Roulac noted.
He added that industrial hemp contains less than 1 percent of THC and anyone who
might smoke it “would get a headache rather than a high, due to its high cannabidiol
(CBD) and low THC content.”
Though perhaps behind the times, it appears that the California Assembly may be catching
on to the reality that hemp is not the same as marijuana. Recently, it passed a resolution
that endorsed the legalization of industrial hemp. Virginia Strom-Martin, (D-Ducan
Mills), introduced the resolution.
“Industrial hemp is not marijuana, but rather a non-intoxicating plant that has been
cultivated and used in a multitude of ways around the world for millennia,” Strom-Martin
“Prohibiting California farmers from growing this potentially highly profitable crop
makes about as much botanical sense as prohibiting gardeners from growing poppies
because one variety is the source of opium,” she added.
Joseph W. Hickey Sr., executive director of the Kentucky Hemp Growers Cooperative
Association agreed. “Calling hemp and marijuana the same thing is like calling a
rottweiler a poodle. They may both be dogs but they just aren’t the same thing.”
Local hemp-product retailers like it too, for a variety of reasons. Joslyn, who carries
hemp clothing in her store said she thinks of it as a “glorified linen. It doesn’t
wrinkle, it holds up, and it just makes sense for the environment.”
She said the only problem with hemp clothing is the price.,”Prices are higher because
we can’t grow it here. It’s all imported. If we grew it here it would become like
a cotton product and keep farmers in business.”
About 20 percent of the clothes in her store are made from hemp or hemp blends, which
appeal not only to the environmentally conscious, but to all types and ages, she
“A lot of the younger people like it because it’s a cool thing. And the people who
make themselves familiar with it begin to purchase it for environmental reasons and
durability,” Joslyn said. “And for its beauty.”
But all beauty aside, in the mid-western states, farmers are extremely interested
in hemp. “Family farms are going bankrupt faster than ever before because agribusiness
is taking over,” said John Schaeffer, president of Real Goods Trading Corporation.
“Hemp gives them an alternative crop that saves them money because it doesn’t need
any chemicals to grow it.”
Schaeffer said in places like Germany and Canada, hemp is being used “more and more
now” in the auto industry for interior parts. “Fiber glass, door panels, carpet and
dashboards can all be replaced with hemp,” he said.
He noted that hemp is “cheaper, recyclable, weighs less, is non-toxic and is much
more energy efficient.” Schaeffer said they sell hemp products at Real Goods retail
stores, including the one in Hopland, because they want to support the industry.
“It’s replacing hydrocarbons, which are polluting the atmosphere, with carbohydrates,
which support family farming,” he said.
According to Roulac, “China was the first region in the world to cultivate and use
hemp. The plant was used for making rope and fishnets as early as 4500 B.C.” And
today, he said, they are still “the world’s largest consumer and exporter of hemp
seed, paper, and textiles.”
As for the United States, there have been no permits given to grow hemp since the
1950s, Roulac said. But in time that will change, according to Schaeffer.
“It’s just a matter of a few years. I think it’s insane that it’s illegal,” Schaeffer
said. “And that America is the only country that’s backward enough to equate hemp
with marijuana.” LEGALIZE IT
Ted Williams, Audubon Magazine . Never has there been a federal statute outlawing
the cultivation of hemp, just the DEA’s insistence that hemp is an illegal drug.
Law-enforcement officials in other countries harbor no such fantasies.
Pubdate: Nov.-Dec. 1999 Cannabis sativa is a low-maintenance crop that can be used
in paper, clothing, rope - even cars. So why, when it’s grown in 32 other countries,
is hemp still illegal in the United States?
I confess that I am a user of hemp. for example, I have just quaffed a Hempen Ale
and a Hempen Gold beer, shipped to me by Frederick Brewing Company of Frederick,
Maryland. Both beverages are brewed with the seeds of hemp - Cannabis sativa - a
plant native to central Asia and grown all over the world as various selected strains,
some of which are known as marijuana. I’m feeling a faint buzz, but only from the
Neither brew contains any of the narcotic delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which
makes pot so popular. In fact, recent tests by the Pentagon invalidate what it calls
the “Hempen Ale defense” by showing the ale to be THC-free. So military personnel
can no longer claim it as the source of the THC that shows up in their urine. But
some hemp products do contain trace amounts of THC - as intoxicating as, say, the
opiates you get from a poppy-seed bagel - so to make sure it knows where the THC
is coming from, the Air Force has banned all foods and beverages made with hemp.
Somehow the news didn’t make it to the Commander in Chief, who, less than a month
later, on February 15, 1999, allowed Hempen Gold to be served on Air Force One. According
to one reporter, the President “tasted but didn’t swallow.”
After I finished ingesting hemp I slathered it on my hair - in the form of a shampoo
made with hempseed oil, which, according to its producer, Alterna Applied Research
Laboratories of Beverly Hills, California, restores dry and damaged (but unfortunately
not missing) hair. While perky hair is not something I normally seek, the hair I
have left definitely feels that way.
What I have just indulged in - at least according to Glenn Levant, the nation’s best-funded
and most heeded marijuana educator - is an internal-external marijuana orgy. Levant
is president and founder of Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE), a 16-year-old
program taught by local police in 75 percent of the nation’s schools. “Hemp is marijuana,”
he informed me, ending the interview when I cited sources that prove otherwise. Last
year Levant was outraged to see Alterna’s hemp-leaf logo on shampoo ads at bus stops
around southern California, and he mounted a successful crusade to get them removed.
“My big objection is that public property was being used to promote an illegal substance,”
he told the Los Angeles Times. “The shampoo is a subterfuge to promote marijuana.”
On July 1, 1999, he paid Alterna an undisclosed sum to settle a lawsuit it had filed
against him for making what it called “false and malicious public comments” about
its product and motives.
Hemp and marijuana can cross-pollinate, but if one is the other, then a Pekinese
is a Doberman pinscher. Plant a hemp seed, and no substance or force on earth can
turn it into marijuana. If you smoke hemp, it will give you only a headache. This
is because it doesn’t contain enough THC to affect your brain. And, unlike marijuana,
it is high in cannabidiol - an antipsychoactive compound that inhibits THC. Because
of this, says David West, a plant breeder hired by the University of Hawaii to grow
an experimental plot of hemp under special permit from the Drug Enforcement Administration
(DEA), hemp “could be called antimarijuana.”
Hemp products are not illegal. In fact, the U.S. hemp-products industry does about
$125 million in retail sales a year. Not only is hemp harmless, it has enormous versatility.
Added to worthless fibers that are currently burned-such as straw from oats, rice,
and wheat hemp can produce superb paper and construction materials lighter and stronger
than lumber. American cropland, 85 percent of which is stuck on a soil-depleting,
chemical-dependent treadmill of corn, wheat, and soybean production, could be released
and renewed if hemp were used as a rotation crop. In England and Hungary, hemp grown
in rotation with wheat hiked the wheat harvest 20 percent. Hemp seeds, better tasting
and more digestible than soy, could be rendered into hundreds of foods, thereby taking
pressure off America’s bottomland hardwood forests, which are being replaced with
Hemp fibers can be woven into cloth more durable than and as comfortable as cotton.
Cotton is much more difficult to grow; it’s addicted to chemical elixirs, requiring
massive fixes of artificial fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides. And when cotton
ripens, the leaves have to be knocked off with defoliants before the bolls can be
harvested. Hemp, which outcompetes weeds, requires no herbicides. In one study, hemp
grown in rotation with soybeans knocked down cyst nematodes by more than half.
Hemp paper is naturally bright, but wood-based paper pulp turns brown during the
cooking process. The pulp is then bleached with chlorine, which, when released into
the environment, produces dioxin and other nasty poisons. And if American farmers
were allowed to grow hemp - which produces twice as much fiber per acre as an average
forest - the nation could reduce nonsustainable logging, and the carbon tied up in
the living timber would remain there instead of contributing to global warming.
Practically anything we make from a polluting, nonrenewable hydrocarbon like oil
or coal can be made from a relatively clean, renewable carbohydrate like hemp. Henry
Ford used to preach this in the 1940s. “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 forests and mineral products in the annual growth of the fields?” he
asked. Ford, who had a vision of “growing automobiles from the soil,” even produced
a demonstration model with body parts partially made with hemp.
So it should come as no surprise that hemp has enormous appeal to those committed
to the protection and restoration of the planet. Three years ago Andy Kerr (called
Oregon’s “leading environmentalist” by the New York City newspaper The Village Voice)
helped set up the North American Industrial Hemp Council (NAIHC) - an alliance of
farmers, scientists, industrialists, and environmentalists whose mission is the decriminalization
of hemp. Members who even associate with advocates of marijuana decriminalization
are summarily dismissed. And no one can call the directors potheads: Two are consultants
for International Paper; one heads the board of a research corporation chartered
by the U.S. Department of Agriculture; and the chair is in charge of agricultural
development and diversification for the state of Wisconsin.
When Kerr was running the Oregon Natural Resources Council and agitating for old-growth
forests, the loggers kept getting in his face and shouting: “What are you going to
wipe your ass with?” “What they meant,” he says a bit more delicately, “was: ‘With
what are you going to wipe your ass?’ It’s a legitimate question. So I kept searching
for alternatives to wood and kept coming back to hemp. ‘God,’ I said, ‘because of
its association with marijuana, we don’t need this. There’s got to be a better fiber.’
Well, there isn’t.”
This kind of hemp advocacy isn’t all that new. Our first hemp law, enacted in Virginia,
made it illegal for farmers not to grow the stuff. That was in 1619. The same law
took effect in Massachusetts in 1631, Connecticut in 1632, and the Chesapeake Colonies
in the mid-1700s, at which time hemp was the world’s leading crop. The Declaration
of Independence and the Constitution were drafted on hempen paper. During the Revolutionary
War, Old Ironsides, our most formidable battleship, carried 60 tons of hempen sail
and rope. Betsy Ross made the first American flag out of hempen “canvas,” a word
derived from cannabis. “Make the most of hempseed and sow it everywhere,” declared
George Washington in 1794.
Never has there been a federal statute outlawing the cultivation of hemp, just the
DEA’s insistence that hemp is an illegal drug. Law enforcement officials in other
countries harbor no such fantasies. Hemp is lawfully grown in 32 nations, and in
the European Union it’s a subsidized crop. It is not practical to distill hemp’s
THC or separate it from the cannabidiol that neutralizes it, but Americans are so
afraid of hemp that they even want to prevent people from wearing it.
Consider the case of Angela Guilford, who sells hempen products in Hoover, Alabama,
and who aroused the suspicions of the community by carrying Grateful Dead memorabilia.
On June 24, 1997, when she was eight months pregnant, police raided her shop, seizing
168 items and charging her and her husband, Jeff Russell, with “felony marijuana
trafficking.” Facing mandatory minimum jail terms of three years, the couple spent
a stressful, suspenseful summer. But in late September charges were dropped when
lab work failed to turn up THC in any of the shirts, bags, or jewelry.
Why such paranoia? There’s no smoking bong, but hemp may be the victim of a conspiracy
by special interests that stood to lose billions in the 1930s, when hemp-fiber-stripping
machines came on line. Among the suspects: DuPont, which had just patented a process
for making plastics from oil and a more efficient process for making paper; Hearst
newspapers, which owned vast timberlands; and Andrew Mellon, an oil and timber baron
as well as partner and president of the Mellon Bank of Pittsburgh, DuPont’s chief
In 1930, nine years after President Warren Harding made him treasury secretary, Mellon
created the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (the DEA’s precursor) and ensconced Harry
Anslinger, the future husband of his niece, as its commissioner. Anslinger charged
out after hemp, which he and the Hearst papers defined as a drug, using it interchangeably
with the more sinister and less familiar term marihuana (later spelled “marijuana”).
Anslinger and Hearst whipped each other, the public, and Congress to prohibitionist
Anslinger testified before the U.S. Senate that no less an authority than Homer had
revealed that the plant “made men forget their homes and turned them into swine”
and that a single joint could induce “homicidal mania” sufficient to cause a man
“probably to kill his brother.” The Hearst papers claimed that under the influence
of marihuana, “Negroes” transmogrified into crazed animals, playing anti-white, “voodoo
satanic” music (jazz) and committing such crimes as stepping on white men’s shadows.
The hype created an insatiable market for low-budget movies like Marihuana: Weed
With Roots in Hell, posters for which featured a rendering of a man thrusting a hypodermic
needle into a woman in a low-cut dress and which promised: “Weird orgies. Daring
drug expose! Horror. Shame. Despair. Wild Parties. Unleashed Passions! Lust. Crime.
Emerging from the hoopla was the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, which made no chemical
distinction between hemp and marijuana. It was all “cannabis,” but the smokeable
parts - the leaves and flowers - were taxed at $100 an ounce, effectively outlawing
them. Had marijuana been the real target, Anslinger would have dispatched his agents
to the border of New Mexico, where the drug was coming in. Instead, he unleashed
them on the newly expanded hemp fields of Minnesota and Illinois, swaddling farmers
in red tape, busting them if a leaf remained on a stalk, running them out of business.
Only five years later hemp farmers got a reprieve when Japan seized the Philippines,
cutting off America’s supply of “Manila hemp” - not true hemp but an excellent fiber
for rope, boots, uniforms, and parachute cording. Now the Feds executed a crisp about-face,
encouraging Americans to be patriotic and grow “hemp.” (No longer did they call it
“marijuana, except on the “Producer of Marijuana” permits they issued farmers.) The
Department of Agriculture even produced a promotional film entitled Hemp for Victory,
featuring footage of workers harvesting pre-Anslinger hemp in Kentucky to a maudlin
rendition of My Old Kentucky Home. With no change in federal law, some 400,000 acres
were planted to hemp, the stalks of which were processed by 42 hemp mills built by
the War Hemp Industries Corporation. After the war, with the synthetic fiber industry
booming, Anslinger resumed his witch-hunt virtually unopposed.
Now he dropped the allegation that hemp/marijuana inspired violent crimes and asserted
instead that it left its victims so entranced and pacifistic that they could be easily
converted to communism. America’s last hemp field was planted in Wisconsin in 1957.
More recently the problem has been a succession of rigid, frontal-assault “drug czars,”
such as General Barry McCaffrey, director of the White House Office of National Drug
Control Policy, who appears to have learned everything he knows about hemp from Anslinger.
Two years ago, when the Forest Service’s lab in Madison, Wisconsin, published a marketing
analysis demonstrating not only that hemp could be profitable for farmers but also
that the state’s entire demand for chlorine-bleached, wood-based writing paper could
be met with hemp, the government had it withdrawn. The crusade to bring hemp back,
McCaffrey charges, is “a thinly disguised attempt to legalize the production of pot.”
Moreover, “legalizing hemp production would send a confusing message to our youth
concerning marijuana.” But the only confusing messages about hemp issue from McCaffrey’s
office, the DEA, and their private-sector drug-war constituency.
Because McCaffrey is the voice of the Clinton administration, the DEA parrots him.
The effort to decriminalize hemp is “no more than a shallow ruse being advanced by
those who seek to legalize marijuana,” proclaims Philip Perry, special agent in charge
of the DEA’s Rocky Mountain Division. The DEA and the drug czar maintain that American
law enforcement agents can’t tell the difference between marijuana and hemp; but
the Mounties, the Gendarmes, the Bobbies, and the police of 29 other nations have
no trouble at all.
A Keystone Cop, boots in the air and helmet in the mud, could tell the difference.
Hemp, grown for stalks, is the spindly stuff that towers over your head; marijuana,
grown for flowers, is the bushy stuff down below your knees. The drug czar and the
DEA claim that pot producers will use hemp fields to hide their illicit crops; but
if they do, their marijuana will be ruined. Cannabis is one of the most prolific
pollen producers of all cultivated plants, and if the high-THC variety is planted
within seven and a half miles of a hemp field, the hemp pollen will render the next
generation of marijuana less potent. “Hemp is nature’s own marijuana eradication
system,” declares James Woolsey, director of the CIA under President George Bush
and now a lobbyist for the NAIHC.
If the war on drugs were really about reducing supply, drug controllers would be
promoting hemp. But the war has taken on a life of its own, become an industry unto
itself. For example, Congress gives the DEA half a billion dollars a year to eradicate
marijuana. But according to the DEA’s own figures, 98 percent of the “marijuana”
eradicated by its agents or the police departments and National Guard units it hires
is hemp-the harmless, feral stuff that escaped during Hemp for Victory days. “Ditchweed,”
it’s called. That’s the “marijuana” you see getting burned in all the photos.
If you’re caught with ditchweed, you’re in big trouble, as Vernon McElroy, 50, discovered
in 1991 when he got convicted for possessing 10.9 pounds that he says a friend had
picked and given him as a joke. Now he’s doing life without parole at the overcrowded
maximum-security penitentiary in Springville, Alabama. In Oklahoma, ditchweed is
even sprayed with herbicides from helicopters. And last year Congress authorized
$23 million for research into a soil-borne fungus that attacks and kills marijuana,
poppy, and coca plants. Mike DeWine (R-OH) calls it a “silver bullet” in the war
on drugs, but David Struhs, secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection, calls it a threat to the “natural environment.”
The only parties affected by ditchweed eradication are future hemp farmers and birds.
Ditchweed, warns hemp researcher David West, “represents the only germ plasm remaining
from the hemp bred over decades in this country to achieve high yields and other
important performance characteristics.” And while hemp is alien to the continent,
wild birds have come to depend on it as a major food source. So relished is hempseed
by birds, in fact, that it is sterilized and sold as commercial bird food. As Vermont
state representative Fred Maslack puts it, the DEA and its pork-addicted drug-war
contractors “would be better off pulling up goldenrod.”
Consider also the self-perpetuation of hemp’s facts-be damned enemy - DARE. That
DARE is recognized as a failure in reducing drug use among adolescents is not a consideration
in the high-finance drug-war business. Virtually every study ever undertaken reveals
that DARE graduates are about as likely to abuse drugs as kids who don’t go through
the program. Such were the results of a two-year, $300,000 analysis by the Research
Triangle Institute of Durham, North Carolina, of eight studies involving 9,500 DARE
students in 200 schools. The Justice Department had commissioned the analysis, but
after intense lobbying by DARE, the agency vainly invited the authors to “re-examine”
their conclusions, then declined to publish the full report, claiming it was bowing
to “concerns” of peer reviewers. Despite its known ineffectiveness, DARE thrives
because every year it gets about $212 million in government grants and private donations
(mostly the latter), which it ladles out to ravenous communities. Millions more are
donated by businesses and police departments directly to local DARE programs.
Anti-hemp brainwashing by DARE works better on parents and school bureaucrats than
on kids. In 1996 Donna Cockrel invited hemp activist and Hollywood actor Woody Harrelson
to talk to her fifth graders in Simpsonville, Kentucky. While Harrelson also advocates
the legalization of medicinal marijuana, he spoke only about hemp’s history and potential.
Immediately Cockrel came under attack by the local DARE officer, who sounded the
alarm to school officials and television audiences, proclaiming that hemp and marijuana
were the same thing. Parents were apoplectic. Cockrel - with past awards for excellence
and called a “dynamo” by The New York Times - was given an unsatisfactory performance
report, investigated by the state professional standards board (which dismissed the
complaint), then fired. “I believe that all children should say no to drugs,” she
says. “But I want them to say yes to the truth.”
Lately america’s war on hemp seems to be flagging under a counterattack of reason.
Legislation to effect or encourage hemp’s declassification as an illegal drug has
been introduced or attempted in Colorado, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota,
Missouri, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont, and
Virginia. Last March, under growing political pressure, McCaffrey made the first
conciliatory noise to The New York Times about maybe “working” with hemp advocates.
But on August 9 the DEA seized a Kenex trailer bringing in 40,000 pounds of hemp
birdseed from Canada, alleging it was a “Schedule 1 narcotic.” Seventeen other loads
of hemp products, including granola bars and horse bedding, were recalled. After
Kenex was threatened with a $500,000 fine, president Jean Laprise commented: “It
seems the DEA could be spending drug-war money in better ways than chasing after
birdseed and horse bedding.” Now McCaffrey is saying hemp can’t be grown economically.
It struck me as odd that the responsibilities of the drug czar have been extended
to protecting American agriculture from its own bad business decisions, so I contacted
a farmer, one David Monson, who works 1,050 acres in Osnabrock, North Dakota, and
who says he and his neighbors aren’t even breaking even on corn, wheat, and soybeans.
“All the fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides we have to use are pushing the
cost out of sight,” he told me. “The bottom line is that we need to find some alternative
crops that we can make money on.” Monson has been forced to work at other jobs-such
as insurance underwriter and state representative, in which capacity he introduced
the nation’s first bill to decriminalize the cultivation of hemp, signed by the governor
Monson, a Republican, also serves as superintendent of schools for the nearby community
of Edinburg. Drug abuse isn’t much of a problem in northern North Dakota, but Monson
works to discourage what little there may be by arranging seminars for students and
training for teachers. And despite the drug czar’s and the DEA’s pronouncements,
the people of North Dakota somehow remain unconvinced that he’s trying to legalize
While hemp could make things lots easier for this tired old planet and the farmers
who till its soil, no one in North Dakota will be growing it anytime soon, because
anyone in that state or elsewhere who plants the seeds will get busted by the DEA.
Monson doesn’t think that’s fair, especially when hemp farmers 20 miles away in Manitoba
are legally making $250 an acre. But until the Feds recognize hemp for what it is
(a versatile crop) instead of what it isn’t (an illegal drug), McCaffrey will have
it right when he warns that it’s not economical to grow.
Factoid: A crop of hemp, one study shows, could bring a return of $319 per acre,
compared with $135 for white corn.
