Senator Mitch McConnell

 As noted in previous bloggings, Kentucky continues to lead the way for Hemp production.  This one is significant because now BOTH Senators from Kentucky have publicly made their stance clear.  It may only seem like two, but with both Senators and a small but growing voter/small business base voicing their willingness to make it happen, this could be a turn.

Other states need to take this and run with it.  Hemp can rebuild economies for agri-centric

Europe and Industrial Hemp

With all of the focus on domestic use and function, sometimes we must look abroad and watch as others work within the market device with industrial hemp.  From these relationships we can learn how they have done it and what they can do in the future.

I ask that as Americans, we look and face to face with our counterparts across the pond and welcome this new and exciting venture.  Countries are building stronger and stronger infrastructures with hemp.  It can be a life lesson for our entire country.

Here are the listings of firms that belong to this organization.  Follow the link to learn more.  Support them and those like them.  Hemp can help you achieve your goals.  Peace to all.

New Hampshire, Free State, and Industrial Hemp

The momentum carries onto another state. The Free staters got a huge response from an ancient truth. Hemp is made for commerce.  Please Please contact your representation on all levels.  Tell them about Hemp and what it can do for the local economy.  The people at HIA can provide information about supply chain models for the entire North American logistical supply chain.  It is possible, just make it happen with passion and information. 

Every little piece helps build something for the future.  Peace.

Hemp INC

Just another example of what happens when people work with a raw material so powerful that it has limitless possibilities in the hands of innovators.  Hemp INC is one of my all time favorites and this is just the beginning.  If there is anyone gaining leverage in the Hemp markets it is them, and the proof of their professionalism and the proof of Hemps market viability is the spin off.  The brand equity is starting to pay off.  Please share this with all you know.  Peace and Freedom to us all.


Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) focuses on the vast market created by the quickly emerging, and growing, multibillion dollar industrial hemp industry. Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) is not involved in the cultivation or marketing of medical marijuana. It is the company’s belief that legalization of hemp in all 50 states and at the federal level will come to pass. With that in mind, the company is building infrastructure with the potential to gain substantial market share before and after industrial hemp prohibition ends. (Pending any federal licensing or other requirements, that may be enacted after hemp prohibition ends). (Hemp, Inc.) (Hemp, Inc.

Nashua, New Hempshire

In a marketing mix, testimonials are normally used when a firm or product has a market persona that needs to be reinforced.  When viewers match themselves to that testimonial, then a new relationship has been established.  Enter Hemp in Nashua, New Hempshire.  Peace and truth shall set you free.

With Free staters comes new Ideas and conversations.  Some easy and some hard.  But at least they take place.  Pass it on and let others know.  Information again and again will aid in the struggle.

Hit the link to help yourself think.

Revisit Ford and the car made from the earth

Henry Ford once made an argument as to justify using products grown from the ground.  To keep the American farmer in the American story and useful in the market persona of all things, Ford attempted and did successfully prove that one could keep the American farmer in the market without risk management or tax burden by providing one simple crop that could do many things for all people.

The crop was Hemp.

And now many countries and many companies including BMW are using Hemp to insulate the interior of their own luxury cars.  Pass it on and make it count.  Let people know that Hemp can bring back jobs and pride to American farmers and the middle class.

The crop is Hemp and the outcome is absolute.

Thank You Kentucky Wildcats

The Hemp train is no longer a mystery.  The state of Kentucky is showing leadership and vision in a time of uncertainty and shame.  The state is pushing down the barriers so do what you can to support.  Contact the congress members and let them know today how you feel.

Vote Hemp

I wanted to let readers know where another great source would be for national news and updates.  Vote Hemp is a great group of people who work very hard to make this a reality in America.  They are always open to new ideas and new volunteers.  Please help them if and when you can.  You will make a difference by helping those who help all people.  Hemp has never reached its full potential.  This is one group whose loyalty has never wavered.

China and the PaperChase

I found this to be interesting and informative.  It is an excellent place to start a conversation about the market viability of Hemp and the job creation variant as well.  The information about China and government, well, that will fall on deaf ears.  Peace.

Informing the farmer is one thing, but American consumers must also learn how trade winds blow and the relationship between price and employment.  Necessary teachings before the storm.

Kentucky Continues to the Conversation


Again, the state of Kentucky is maintaining the lead on the efforts for market freedom.  This article is a update to the earlier statements about hemp, but it also brings into play that business leaders are now crying for freedom.  It is relevant that producers and consumers work together on this.  If the economy is going to remain a focal point, then solutions need table time.

American Flag

For those patriots of the USA and for those of a Hemp mind, their is a product that can serve both of those needs.  Be proud and strong for both America and Industrial Hemp.  Let those around you know that Justice and Liberty for all must be absolute for it to exist at all.  Peace in 2013 and beyond.

Presidential Petition

 Feel free to copy this and send to friends.  Information is the key to success.  Peace.

Hemp is an alternative crop that can be farmed with little or no chemicals and is a sustainable natural resource that can replace the harmful processes of deforestation, strip mining, paper pulping and fracking. Its many uses include oil for fuel and plastics, paper, the strongest natural fiber in the world for textiles and building materials, and a nutritious food source. This fast growing crop used to be grown by farmers nationwide, and could resuscitate the depleted earth and the farms of this country. My clothing company, Minawear Luxury Hemp Lounge wear, must outsource to China because it is illegal to grow in the US.

So I created a petition to President Barack Obama, which says:
This petition calls to amend the Controlled Substances Act to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of "marihuana." To define "industrial hemp" to mean the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-nine tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.
To deem Cannabis sativa L. to meet that concentration limit if a person grows or processes it for purposes of making industrial hemp in accordance with state law.
Will you sign this petition? Click here:

The Year of Hemp

It may sound strange but I feel confident about the future of Industrial Hemp.  The advances in automotive and food production alone have made it a permanent fixture in any economy of scale around the world.  And as such, several countries have made the choice to get into the business of Hemp.

It is my wish that the American farmer will do the same.  But with time comes the burden of truth.  The american farmer does not get perfect information about what hemp can do for them and this country.  This is why this blog has begun.  It is my hope that we as a state and as a people can start to break down those barriers of ignorance and greed to let the truth of Industrial Hemp find it's place in our homes, hearts, and commerce.

The blog will grow with feedback and participation.  I hope it can become something people can rely for shopping, legal cases, innovations both home and abroad.  I do my very best to keep the information posted here fresh and in real time.  I hope this network can spread the joy of Industrial Hemp to those currently in the dark.

It has begun.  2013 is the year of Hemp.  Peace to us all!!
