(NaturalNews) Mike Adams recently interviewed Phil Moffett, who is running for governor of Kentucky. Phil is proposing that Kentucky defy the federal government's ban on hemp. His focus is on industrial hemp, not medical marijuana, and he wants to return this cash crop to Kentucky's farmers.

There's even more to hemp than cash flow.

Hemp for Nutrition

Hulled hemp seeds, their powders and cold pressed oils provide all the essential amino acids for easily digested high protein. Hemp is not only very high in omega-3, but it provides an almost perfect ratio of omega-3 to omega-6. It is truly a super food.

Hemp is so nutritionally dense that one could survive on hemp seeds alone during extreme food shortages. If hemp were legal, you could easily grow your own.

Hemp Improves Farming

Hemp plants don't need pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, which rely mostly on the phosphate industry. A phosphate industry byproduct is the fluoride that is sold to municipalities for our daily poison. Hemp's thick roots ward off weeds, and growing hemp improves the soil's nitrogen, making that soil better for other crops. They would be useful and lucrative rotation crops for organic farmers.

Hemp plants have a growth cycle of only four months. In mild climates, harvesting hemp up to three times in one year would create an annual cash cow for farmers. The cannabis taboo is eliminated by allowing the male plants to continually pollinate the female plants. This reduces psychotropic THC to legal levels.

Eliminating Toxic Petrochemical Plastics

There is a clump of plastic waste residue larger than the state of Texas floating in the middle of the Pacific. A lot of it is expected to decompose, creating a plastic soup in the ocean. The toxins from this plastic soup spread out into other oceanic regions and are hazardous to fish and bird wildlife. This soup could find its way into our kitchens as well!

All kinds of plastics are produced with hemp, from clear wraps for foods to automobile parts. Hemp plastics are durable and heat resistant. And they are bio-degradable. Currently, the French auto industry is making some of its automobile parts from hemp. Henry Ford pioneered this in 1941 when he built his "vegetable car" with hemp and flax. It was stronger and lighter than steel cars.

Ford's hemp-mobile also used hemp bio-diesel fuel, which creates very little pollution. The petroleum industry didn't approve of that. Hemp seeds were even used to make paints and lacquers in the mid-1930s.

Petrochemical plastics for all purposes could be replaced with hemp plastics that are non-toxic and bio-degradable. Bye-bye BPA!

More Trees for Tree Huggers

Pulp from trees is used to make paper. But anything wood pulp can do, hemp fibers can do better. Paper from trees can be recycled three times. Hemp paper can be recycled eight times. Since hemp was banned in the USA in 1937, 70% of the USA's forests have been eliminated.

It's estimated that one acre of hemp produces more oxygen from CO2 and methane than 25 acres of forest. One idea is to have inner city hemp plots to improve urban air quality. We wouldn't need bogus carbon tax legislation.

Pulping trees for paper creates more waste and consumes more energy than most enterprises. This industry consumes more water than almost all others. It is the fifth largest industry consumer of energy, and it emits a good deal of toxicity in the process.

In 1937, hemp was banned just after a machine was invented to remove hemp fibers rapidly in large quantities. Humanity suffers from the reaction of threatened industries.
