14. It will be the chemical companies that,
Kill this bill. Hemp can be made in to white paper with out any chemicals, it can be recycled 6 times as much. Hemp seed oil can take the place of diesel fuel with out any distilling. Hemp can also be made into fabric that doesn't need any chemicals to make it white. Doesn't take a great amount of fertilizer either to get it to grow either. It was illegalized to give all those Prohibition cops something to do once liquor was made legal again.
