  • Why use up the forests, which were centuries in the making, and the mines which required ages to lay down if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?
    Henry Ford
  • I’m a huge fan of hemp. I think we should quit calling it hemp and just call it the best plant ever.
    Joel Salatin Polyface Farm, Swoope, Virginia
  • This is a miracle plant that has served the planet earth well for, literally, millennia, and that we currently legally manufacture and sell thousands of hemp products including food, clothing, shelter, paper, fuel, all biodegradable products. It's renewable every 90 days, grows without herbicides, pesticides and fungicides, and needs less water than corn. It is the definition of sustainability.
    Senator Mark Leno U.S. Senator, California
  • It is absurd that hemp is being imported into the state, but our farmers cannot grow it.
    Governor Jerry Brown Governor California
  • Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country.
    Thomas Jefferson American Founding Father
    Principal Author of the Declaration of Independence
    Third President of the United States
  • As long as it’s for industrial use and is closely monitored, it may be a help to the economy. We don’t view it as an issue that we want to oppose.
    John W. Jones Executive Director, Virginia Sheriffs’ Association
  • If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.
    Thomas Jefferson American Founding Father
    Principal Author of the Declaration of Independence
    Third President of the United States
  • Make the most of the Indian hemp seed, and sow it everywhere!
    George Washington American Founding Father
    First President of the United States
