July 4th: America shows Old Glory as it was first made

This July 4th marks the first time since the 1930's that an American flag will fly on the Capitol flag pole as it was first made...of Hemp.  The flag is made of Hemp and has not been used since hemp was placed in the Marijuana Act of 1937. 

Betsy Ross made the flag with Hemp that showed the original 13 stars to mark each colony that would make up the first states of the New World.

Remember on this July 4th what you are celebrating.  When you look at Old Glory cutting through blue sky tell those around you she was originally manufactured using hemp fibers grown in American fields by American farmers.  Of which included George Washington and Thomas Jefferson .

Happy Birthday America

Welcome Home Hemp
