#Chapter9 (concluded)

Spinning American hemp into rope yarn or twine in the old Kentucky river mill at Frankfort, Kentucky. Another pioneer plant that has been making cordage for more than a century. All such plants will presently be turning out products spun from American-grown hemp: twine of various kinds for tying and upholsterer’s work; rope for marine rigging and towing; for hay forks, derricks, and heavy duty tackle; light duty firehose; thread for shoes for millions of American soldiers; and parachute webbing for our paratroopers. As for the United States Navy, every battleship requires 34,000 feet of rope; and other ships accordingly. Here in the Boston Navy Yard, where cables for frigates were made long ago, crews are now working night and day making cordage for the fleet. In the old days rope yarn was spun by hand. The rope yarn feeds through holes in an iron plate.

This is Manila hemp from the Navy’s rapidly dwindling reserves. When it is gone, American hemp will go on duty again: hemp for mooring ships; hemp for tow lines; hemp for tackle and gear; hemp for countless naval uses both on ship and shore. Just as in the days when Old Ironsides sailed the seas victorious with her hempen shrouds and hempen sails …

“Hemp for Victory!”

Georgia Republican Gov. Nathan Deal will sign legislation legalizing a nonsmoked form of medical marijuana for patients with seizure disorders and seven other medical conditions, the governor's spokesman said.

Deal plans to wait until after the legislative session ends next week before signing it, spokesman Brian Robinson said.

On Friday, however, Deal signed an executive order directing state agencies to begin preparing to enact the legislation, Robinson added.

The Georgia bill, which was finalized by lawmakers on Wednesday, would allow patients with diseases such as cancer and multiple sclerosis to use a nonintoxicating oil derived from the marijuana plant, often from a strain known as Charlotte's Web.

To legally use the oil, patients or their caregivers must obtain a registration card from the state Department of Public Health. Their physician also must certify that they are being treated for one of the medical conditions covered by the bill.

Similar legislation failed during last year's session.

Georgia would be the 12th U.S. state to approve such use of the oil, the pro-marijuana organization NORML said. The approach is more limited than those of 23 other states, which allow regular marijuana to be smoked for medicinal purposes.

Nonetheless, we can see a general shift towards the acceptance of cannabis as a medicine. When will the Federal Government follow suit?

Cannabis legalization is on the way, with more states opting in for medical marijuana programs and recreational programs we'll see a landslide victory for marijuana next year.

Even Pres. Obama said that if enough states were to legalize, Congress would have to act accordingly. Little by little we have been gaining grounds and while there is still a lot to do, we are almost at the tipping point of marijuana legalization on a National scale. Will it be 100% regulated like alcohol? Probably not, but in all likeliness all criminal penalties will be removed over the next five years.

It's been nearly 80 years since a bunch of racist tycoons came together to taint the good name of cannabis. When hemp and marijuana is once more in the service of mankind...can you imagine how society will change?

We should live in a society that empowers people to take their health into their own hands. Prohibiting marijuana is just criminal.

There is no justification for keeping prohibition in place. Other countries approached the issue as a health problem and cut serious addiction to heroin down by half. It's time we take law enforcement out of drug consumption. It should never be criminal regardless of what substance you consume.

Yes, Portugal has shown the world the benefits of legalizing all drugs and not throwing people into dog cages over such silly "substances".  Also, Holland, by taxing cannabis thru the coffeeshops, and using that money to hold back the might North Sea.

  If only Louisiana had done this, along with the hefty tourism taxes they have raked in over the years from the city of New Orleans alone, they could have kept Hurricane Katrina from doing most of the harm to people that was done.  Funny thing is, just 2 weeks before Katrina hit, this subject was covered on the Discovery Channel, comparing the Netherlands' keep the North Sea under control from damaging such cities as Rotterdam and Amsterdam, and comparing New Orleans and the fact that New Orleans is sinking at a rate of 1-2 inches per year.

Scientists estimate that by 2095, the coastline will pass the city and New Orleans will be a "fish bowl."  The squandering of public tourism taxes have not helped the city of New Orleans and its residents.

 The legalization of cannabis and tourism taxing from it, would indeed greatly restructure the sinking city along with reducing violent alcohol related crimes that are sky high in New Orleans alone, especially during Mardi Gras.  Time to legalize it Bobby Jindal.

#Chapter9 (continued)

The length of time hemp is left on the ground to ret depends on the weather. The swaths must be turned to get a uniform ret. When the woody core breaks away readily like this, the hemp is about ready to pick up and bind into bundles. Well-retted hemp is light to dark grey. The fiber tends to pull away from the stalks. The presence of stalks in the bough-string stage indicates that retting is well underway. When hemp is short or tangled or when the ground is too wet for machines, it’s bound by hand. A wooden bucket is used. Twine will do for tying, but the hemp itself makes a good band.

When conditions are favorable, the pickup binder is commonly used. The swaths should lie smooth and even with the stalks parallel. The picker won’t work well in tangled hemp.

After binding, hemp is shucked as soon as possible to stop further retting. In 1942, 14,000 acres of fiber hemp were harvested in the United States. The goal for 1943 is 300,000 acres of fiber hemp. Thus hemp, the old standby cordage fiber, is staging a strong comeback.

This is Kentucky hemp going into the dryer at a mill at Versailles. In the old days braking was done by hand. One of the hardest jobs known to man. Now the power braker makes quick work of it.
