This fabric design promotes my strong belief that the United States needs to start producing Cannabis for both medicinal and industrial use and here is why. First, during my cancer treatments I reacquainted myself with the miracle of hemp. Suggested to me by a nurse who saw I wasn't doing well with the pharmaceuticals the hospital was giving me for the trouble I was having eating. The pills they gave me caused sever dizziness and didn't work that well. Two hits of pot and I could eat, the stomach cramps stopped in seconds and it played a big part in saving my life. Marijuana is also well documented as the best treatment for crones disease and many other physical and mental health issues.
Then there is the nutritional value. Hemp seeds have the highest volumn of amino fatty acids of any known plant on Earth, far surpassing even flax seed. Used as flour in breads and snacks it is what we consider a super food in both the amount of nutrition and the body's ability to break down and use that nutrition.
Then there is industry. Hemp oils can replace any petroleum product on the market. It can also be used to make a cleaner, better burning ethanol for gas but the big deal here is that growing hemp does not destroy the earths nutriant level like corn does and can be planted in the same fields every year which means more productive land per foot than corn.
We would never have to cut another tree for paper and many building products. Hemp is a yearly renewable product that makes a better, stronger, longer lasting paper than wood without all the acids of wood. It also makes a stronger composite building board than sawdust.
Clothing textiles are super strong and long lasting made from hemp and a whole lot easier to grow and pick than cotton.
There is no existing industry that couldn't benefit from hemp oil to run their machines bringing our dependance on fossil fuels down to nothing. It can make plastics stronger with less environmental impact, to be used in everything from home building to air planes and has the strength to do it better than any current products.
I hope this is helping me educate folks as to why it is so important to stop the prohibition of Marijuana. Speak to your law makers and set forth a smart plan for our future. This would create so many jobs and bring a clean industry to the US that is so needed. The plant exist to nurture us and we can not allow our government to continue to deny us the benefits of this magical weed.

Thank you Lisa. Having gone through cancer I can certainly vouch for its medicinal qualities but there are so many more reasons for the United States to cultivate this plant. When I was getting my Chemo they gave me a drug to help me feel like eating but the drug made me dizzy and feel like I was going to pass out every time I stood up. It really didn't work either. My nurse suggested I try Marijuana even though it is illegal in my state. One or two hits and my sever stomach pain would go away in seconds. It really was a miracle for me. So then I started researching it and was blown away by all the good this one plant could do. What I have here is still a short list of places hemp can replace a lesser quality product. I didn't even get in to the tax dollars that could be saved if we set pot offenders free from prisons. I don't have the amount written down but I do remember when I read it a few years ago it was a crazy dollar amount our government spends on arresting, prosecuting and housing pot offenders. I get hemp oil for salad dressing now. It has a bit of an earthy taste to it so I mix it with cold pressed organic sesame oil which has a lovely and strong taste that covers the Earthyness. I mix that with apple cider vinegar unprocessed with "mother" and it taste awesome and is like a shot of super vitamins. That little combo contains almost everything our bodies need for health.
Gorgeous design, and I appreciate your position on legalization! Thank you for taking the time to educate us on some of the many uses of hemp as food, oil, and fuel, in addition to its well known uses as a fiber and for its medicinal properties.
Thanks Sylvie for your time and comments. I was channeling my youth with the color choices. I apreciate your support of legalization as well. It's one of the smartest things this country could do for everyone. There are too many possitives to ignore.
