Hemp is touted as a miracle crop with countless applications for all; it has quickly gained notoriety in the health world, but still faces strict legislative controls that make it almost impossible to grow despite being "legal." Ted Metz came on to talk about the industrial uses of hemp and also some of the health effects hemp has on the natural world. It is a beautiful product that can help make the world a "greener" place. It is imperative that the legislative constrictions be released.
