Despite the genetic relation, comparing hemp to "marijuana" is a case of comparing apples to oranges. Cultivating hemp freely will allow an incredible industry where we could replace plastics and wood with hemp material and save our landfills in the process. Hemp, especially the seeds, is an incredible source of protein and nutrients that could round out a healthy diet. Please look it up, there are many potentials for this plant and it's crazy that this country has closed this material off from people for so many decades, especially since the founding documents of this country are actually written on hemp paper. Voting yes on this is common sense and one step further out of the dark ages.
