Because of the many ways hemp can be grown and utilized, it would be beneficial for the United States to once again produce it. Hemp can be used for medicines, food, clothing and shelter, fuel and textiles. It can also absorb greenhouse gases more efficiently than other crops, uses little water, and eliminates the need for pesticides and herbicides. The fear of it being a substance that can get one high like marijuana is why progress has been slow in getting the laws reversed.
