It’s no secret that many of our founding fathers not only grew hemp on their farms, but encouraged the use of hemp for a variety of purposes. How wonderful would it be now to see Virginia – where many of these men lived and conducted business – permit the use of medicinal marijuana?
The marijuana bill for the Commonwealth of Virginia goes before the Virginia House today. Here’s hoping legislators remember the words of two of our greatest statesmen:
“Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country.” – Thomas Jefferson
“Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.” – George Washington
