Hemp for Victory!

"Hemp for Victory!" A USDA educational film from 1942 extolling the patriotic virtues of growing the crop that, a half-century later, over 600,000 people would be arrested for possessing. (Gotta love the official "Producer of Marihuana" license.) How times have changed.

Apparently GlobalHemp and Apple have the same web designers. That would explain a lot.

XQUZYPHYR is right. Hemp is grown where I live too. HempFlax.
This kind of hemp has a very low THC %.

the two above posters are correct. Industrial hemp has negligable amounts of THC, and is in many ways not the same plant as smokable marijuana. The most common analogy that I've herad is that it's like comparing sweet corn to field corn.

They call them trace amounts for a reason. Should they ban water because it contains trace amounts of arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, selenium, silver and zinc?
